PRO Services introduced the Pump-Smart PS30, a next-generation load monitor that uses a pump’s motor as a sensor to protect industrial equipment from common machine failures. It can be programmed to shut down a pump by stopping its motor at the first signs of equipment malfunction.
Features include a large-format, externally mounted HMI screen to review data and programming. It offers event backlogging capabilities, and the capacity to manage voltages from 100 to 500 VAC with a single model. Three independent alarm relays notify operators and the plant’s distributed control system when failures like cavitation or deadhead are detected.
