Nidec Motor Corporation Launches VFD Pump Panels for Agricultural Irrigation

DEC 16, 2015

Complete Inverter Duty Solution from a Single Point of Contact and Stocked for Rapid Delivery

St. Louis, MO (December 16, 2015) –Nidec Motor Corporation (NMC) proudly announces the launch of the U.S. MOTORS® brand pump panel, a drive panel designed to operate seamlessly with inverter duty vertical HOLLOSHAFT® motors. This pump panel is part of the ACCU-SERIESTM line of variable speed products developed by NMC and carries with it a Motor Match Drive Warranty of up to three years.

With every drop of water being crucial to a producer’s success, NMC is focused on improving the precision, efficiency and performance of agricultural irrigation pumping systems. The new pump panel boasts systematic compatibility with U.S. MOTORS brand vertical HOLLOSHAFT inverter duty motors to deliver high wire-to-water efficiency. Together, they work seamlessly for ultimate reliability, inspiring the confidence that springs from one point of responsibility for both motor and drive.

Designed with pump system installers and agricultural producers in mind, the pump panel comes equipped with features most asked for in a standard off-the-shelf product. Both installation and operation in the field are easy. With pump specific software and setup parameters for simple installation, they can be set up to maintain constant speed, pressure or flow.

NMC pump panels carry the trusted U.S. MOTORS name. With a complete offering of inverter duty motors and drives under the ACCU-SERIES umbrella, these products are engineered to operate, trouble-free, in the hottest, driest weather conditions.

Pump specific features such as slow pipe fill, water well draw down control, low water inlet pressure detection, under-load detection and motor temperature monitoring reduce pump system mechanical stress and help protect the motor and pump from damage. A removable keypad ensures only qualified personnel can reprogram the pump drive.

NMC pump panels are backed by a Motor Match Drive Warranty, covering all panel components for 12/18 months from date of installation/manufacture. The Motor Match Drive Warranty extends the length of the drive warranty to match the standard warranty of the new, unused U.S. MOTORS brand inverter duty motor the panel is driving. That means up to 36 months from date of installation at no additional charge. Only product registration is required.
