Single- and three-phase WS Series wastewater/sewage simplex and duplex control panels from SEEwater include Smart Board pump protection for longer pump life and performance.

“The duplex system provides high-demand, two-pump operation for above-normal volumes by allowing both pumps to run simultaneously,” says Michael Johnson, vice president. “It also provides standby capacity if one unit fails.” Applications include sewage pump chambers, sump pump basins and lift stations. The panels can be used with grinder pumps.

“We offer a complete line of pre-engineered control panels that are specific for single- and three-phase wastewater and sewage pump applications,” Johnson says. “The panels come standard with complete pump status monitoring and protection, including visual indicators and adjustable overload protection. They also come with seal failure and thermal cutout/heat sensor circuits and dry contacts (high liquid, pump run and pump fault) for remote alarms, auto dialers or building automation systems.”

Duplex control panels are available in three, four-float models (WD1P-3-4, WD3P-5-4, WD3P-10-4). Model WD1P-3-4 is a 120/208/240 VAC single-phase control that operates pumps up to 1 hp at 120 volts or 2 hp at 208/240 volts. Model WD3P-5-4 is a 120/208/240 VAC three-phase control that operates pumps up to 3 hp at 208/240 volts. Model WD3P-10-4 is a 480 VAC three-phase control that operates pumps up to 7.5 hp at 480 volts and includes through-door main disconnect. Three-float models for two-pump operation and high-liquid alarm are available.

Simplex control panel models include WS1P-TP (120/208/240 VAC single-phase), WS3P-TP (120/208/240 VAC three-phase) and WS3P-TP-B (480 VAC three-phase).

The NEMA 4X polycarbonate panels have visible pump-run LED indicators, hand-off-auto (HOA) switches, green pump-run and red pump-fault lights with reset button, and power-on light. Visible-mounted alarm features include high red-beacon alarm light, alarm test, silence buttons and high 85-decibel audible alarm.

The control system includes three or four narrow-angle float switches with 20-foot cords and mounting hardware. Panels and controls are UL listed for the United States and Canada and CSA certified. Custom options are available. 888/733-9283;
