Grundfos exhibits Magna3 and Alpha high-efficiency, variable-speed circulators
Grundfos exhibited its high-efficiency, variable-speed circulators Magna3 and Alpha at ComforTech 2013, the national conference and product showcase for the ventilation, heating, air-conditioning, refrigerating, hydronics and plumbing industries, Sept. 18 to 20 in Philadelphia.
Magna3 and Alpha offer much more than the ability to match pump speed to varying system loads. Both circulators feature a variable-speed, electronically-commutated motor (ECM) that uses a patented integrated logic algorithm, AutoAdapt, to learn the varying energy use patterns of an application over time, enabling the software to automatically determine the lowest possible operating efficiency point to meet ever-changing demand.
By continuously fine tuning power consumption and flow rates to meet the dynamic needs of the system, AutoAdapt saves both energy and money for Magna3 and Alpha users. The AutoAdapt function is so powerful that eight of 10 installations can rely on this feature to automatically select the optimal setting with no additional human intervention. For the installer, that simply means plug and play and walk away.
Easy to install, operate and maintain, the innovative Magna3 and Alpha lines feature easy interfacing with building management systems. Wireless connectivity enables handheld pump control, monitoring and reporting capabilities by Grundfos GO, a mobile toolbox app available on Apple and Android devices.
