Applied Motor Control Solutions

Benshaw soft starters and variable frequency drives offer significant benefits for irrigation systems and other agricultural water pumping applications, including prevention of water hammer; prolonged life for pumps, pipes, valves and headworks; added pump starting capacity for limited electrical supplies; and intelligent control of the entire system — an important consideration for operations concerned with water and energy conservation.

Benshaw’s motor control solutions are designed to help water pumping stations operate at optimal efficiency by:

  • Reducing water and energy consumption/costs
  • Minimizing pump cycling through constant pressure control
  • Minimizing damage to unrelated equipment caused by pump start current surges
  • Protecting connected equipment (short circuit/overload protection)
  • Mitigating potential electrical hazards (ground fault protection)
