Benshaw WinDRIVE software simplifies commissioning and monitoring of variable frequency drives
Benshaw offers a FREE Windows-based software tool that can be used to simplify commissioning and monitoring of Benshaw variable frequency drives (VFDs). WinDRIVE is compatible with all of our latest VFDs including: H2 Series, H2P Series, S Series, SW Series, GM2 Series and SG Series drives. To begin using WinDRIVE, simply download and launch the software on a Windows-based PC, then connect to your drive via Modbus-RTU (RS-485, RS-232) or Modbus TCP (Ethernet).
A recent trend shows a significant push toward using variable frequency drives (VFDs) for improved pump efficiency, particularly when throttling valves have been used to control flow. However, there is increasing evidence that for many pumping applications where real-time flow control is not necessary, VFDs are not the most energy efficient solution.
Benshaw has launched a new series of intelligent, multi-pump control AC drives, with UL/cUL ratings from 7.5 to 800HP. The Benshaw H2P Series drives are capable of optimizing up to eight pumps as a coordinated pump control system.
