WEG’s new Pump Genius for its CFW-11 variable speed drive is process control software that manages and monitors up to six pumps in a coordinated system. Pump Genius can operate motors from 5-150 hp in the 208 and 230/240 VAC range and motors from 5 hp up to 600 hp in the 480 VAC range. The software monitors the operating hours of all pumps in the system, adding and subtracting pumps as demand changes, all without the need for setting a cycle timer—ensuring equal pump run times without supervision. Another key feature is the ability to have a floating master and slave rather than the traditional system of fixed master and slave pumps. Pump Genius automatically senses if the master is not responding due to sensor loss or other fault condition and assigns another pump to become the master, maintaining operational continuity at all times during the process.
