Optimizes pump operation

The Emotron DCM immediately stops the submersible pump when it starts to draw air because of a lack of water, and restarts it when there is water again. Pump operation is adapted to water flow, minimizing energy and maintenance costs.

Uses the pump motor as a sensor

The tough conditions in applications such as mines, means water level sensors cannot be used. The Emotron DCM offers reliable monitoring also in these cases, since it uses the pump motor as its own sensor.

Control and monitor your submersible pumps

The Emotron DCM automatically adjusts pump operation to water flow, without external water level sensors. It also prevents dry-running and other damage, reducing maintenance and downtime. Typical applications are drainage on construction sites, in quarries, and mines.

 

protection from dry-running

The Emotron DCM also prevents dry-running and other costly damage to your submersible pumps. This cuts maintenance costs and extends the pump's lifetime.

quick installation and setup

The Emotron is a reliable and maintenance-free electronic device. Installation and maintenance costs are reduced since external sensors are not required. The submersible pump's starting and stopping levels are set in seconds, thanks to a unique 'Auto Set' function.


 

Accurate monitoring whatever the motor load

The Emotron shaft power monitoring technology offers very accurate, reliable, and cost-efficient supervision of electric motor-driven processes. It was patented in 1979 and since then has been the basis for our shaft power monitors as well as a unique integrated feature in our AC Drives and Soft Starts.
