Description

Twin pump controller with alarm, designed to be used with matched pairs of manual versions of Newton Pumps of 250–750 W. The sophisticated, easy-to-install, twin pump control system offers some of the features of the Newton Control Panel-Pro, but at a lower cost.

The major feature of the control system is the self-diagnostic program that operates both pumps on a weekly basis to ensure that they are not stood idle for extended periods, preventing seizure and premature pump failure. Each pump will operate for five seconds (one after the other), once per week.

Each pump is operated by its own vertical-type float switch. The panel is designed to be used with an optional Newton Victron Battery Backup System, sized to suit the pumps and installed with sufficient battery power to ensure continued pumping during power outages.

Features and benefits:

  • The Newton Pump Controller will operate manual pumps to a maximum power of 750 W/ 230 V a.c.
  • Two independent power supply inputs – one for grid mains and the other for either grid mains or a battery-backed power supply via a Newton Victron Battery Backup System.
  • Automatic pump duty assist – if one pump cannot cope with the volume of water entering the sump, the water level will rise to the switch of the second pump, which will automatically start to increase the pumping capability. Please note that separate discharge lines maximize the volume of water removed when this feature is utilized.
  • An alarm checking signal is continually monitored to confirm that the alarm float cables have been fitted correctly, and have not been tampered with nor disconnected.
  • As well as the panel’s audible alarm, an alarm output is sent to trigger the optional Newton Dialer or home alarm at the time of a pump failure.
  • Automatic testing of each pump every seven days – test ensures that the pumps are used each week. Each control circuit has its own independent timer to ensure that each pump is tested at different times. The SET button starts the seven-day cycle.
  • Both pumps can be started from the panel for testing.
  • The alarm is powered under normal circumstances by 230 V mains and by an internal 9V battery during a power outage.
  • Alarm sounder can be muted.
  • Pump counter – an internal, six-digit counter is included that counts the number of times Pump 1 operates (not Pump 2). This count includes the weekly pump test and pump operations activated by the float switch.
  • A choice of Newton manual pumps of 400 and 750 watts.
  • Battery backup – Optional Newton Power Converter (1200 or 3000 W) can be connected to the unit to provide continuation of pumping (Pump 2) during a power outage.
  • Fail-safe telemetry – pump controller can be connected to the Newton Dialer (PA5) or to a home alarm system (BMS).
  • One year back to base warranty which is dated from either the date of purchase or a proven date of installation.
