All Fhoton SolarPAKS include:
1 x Solar Pump, 1 x Solar Motor, 1 x Fhoton Control Panel, 1 x WiFi Chip, 3m of power cable to go from the Panels to the DC Isolator switch & 10m of power cable to to from the DC Isolator to the Control Panel.
100, 150 & 270 LPM pumps are supplied with 2″ BSPMF external Check Valve.
Array & Panel pricing is separate.
The Fhoton Drive system serves to provide water in remote applications where electrical grid power is either unreliable or unavailable. The system pumps water using a DC power source such as an array of solar panels.
Since the sun is only available during certain hours of the day and only in good weather conditions, the water is generally pumped into a storage tank.
Up to two level switches can be installed inside the tank to regulate the water level.
A flow switch detects if flow is below critical levels while the pump is still running. This serves as an indication that the well has run dry, or that insufficient power is available to continue pumping. The system will shut down to protect the pump and motor until the well, or adequate electric power, has recovered.
The Fhoton™ Drive runs at variable speed to match the changing power available from the PV solar array. Variable speed operation means there is no in-rush or surge of energy during the pump/motor start-up, thus reducing wear on the motor and pumping system. A leading cause of pump motor failure is the stress applied to the motor during a full voltage start-up. The Fhoton™ Drive variable speed operation ramps up the speed smoothly, which reduces starting stress. This feature enhances long-term motor reliability.
Fhoton is supplied with WiFi operational from an App.
All threads are BSPP on Pump Ends, Check Valves & Flow Switches.
The Fhoton Controllers are outdoor rated to IP66.
