Application Notes:

  1. This Pump Power Tracker(TM) is quite capable of putting out over 60 amps into a stalled load even from a single 30 watt 4.5 amp panel. It is recommended that a fuse or over temperature switch matched to your pump motor be incorporated in the system to protect your pump or motor. The units internal fuse will protect the unit.
  2. Float switch operation draws microamps of current, ie: small wire gauge, allowing long distance runs between float switches/holding tanks, and PV / pump driver without the need to string long lines of heavy gauge wire.
  3. Unit is a true 40 amp unit, all necessary derating already accounted for. Unit is capable of 50 amp operation with normal derating practices.
  4. As with all electronics, it is recommended the unit not be mounted in direct sunshine.

Note: In the interest of continuous product improvement, specifications subject to change without notice.
