Automatically fill the water tank directly from the bore.
The bore pump starts when the water level drops in the tank and the pump stops when the tank is full.
Automatic monitoring of the water level in the tank so that the pump starts when the water level is low and the pump stops when the tank is full.
NOTE: The info below is relevent to our Franklin Electric bore pumps, motors and controls.
A – A float Switch in the tank can monitor the water level.
If using a 3 Phase bore pump, one or two float switches can be wired into the ‘CP3 Control Panel’. The CP3 Control Panel is for 3 Phase bore pumps from 0.37kw to 7.5kw motors with DOL starters. The CP3 option needed to perform this function is ‘Option BLC’ which is the relay to suit 1 or 2 float switches. You will also need to purchase the ‘float switch’. The float switches are available in different lengths from 1m to 50m. For this set up you will need the following:
CP3 Control Panel. These are available in different sizes depending on the kw of the submersible motor. They range from 0.37kw up to 7.5kw.

Alternatively, you can use the ‘Level Control Panel’ with the ‘LLR option’. The Level Control Panel has the added feature of ‘Overload Indication’ and ‘Low Bore Indication with Reset Button Indication’.
The Level Control Panel can also be used for 1 Phase bore pumps as well as for 3 Phase bore pumps. For the ‘Level Control Panel’ setup you will need the following:
Level Control Panel. These are available in different sizes depending on the kw of the submersible motor. They range from 0.37kw to 3.7kw for a single 1 Phase 2-wire motor, from 0.75 to 3.7kw for a 3-wire single 1 Phase motor and from 0.75 to 7.5kw for a three 3 Phase motor.
