The electronic control panel with power factor control
DRYTEK is the control panel by Elentek with microprocessor for power factor control of 1 single-phase or three-phase electric pump.
The ideal system for dry running protection of your pump.
Practical and versatile, DRYTEK allows you to save installation

Electronic board and components
Drytek contains an electronic main board with microprocessor and external LCD for reading the parameters set and the alarms status.
The motor protection fuses are supplied as a standard and can be replaced by circuit breaker on request.
An isolator switch cuts the main power supply input to cut-off voltage to the panel and guarantees max safety when opening the control panel.
The DRYTEK series is equipped with a practical LCD for reading the operating and alarm status, in addition it has LED lights and pushbuttons for setting and control on the frontpanel.
The main screen shows in any time the electrical quantities measured by DRYTEK:
- Voltage power supply;
- Current consumption of the connected load;
- Power factor of the connected load (cos-fi);
- Manual or automatic operation mode.
Any set-up, control and use operation is done on the frontpanel without opening the enclosure of the panel.
5 languages are available in the software (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German).
The system is simple, fast and intuitive.
By pressing the SETUP button and holding it down for a few seconds, you access the user programming menu.
In the first screen you can set the minimum value of the power factor below which the load is deactivated for dry running protection.
In the second you can set the maximum motor current value above which the motor is deactivated for overcurrent protection.
4 interval times can be set for automatic restart with the possibility of making it cyclical.
The DRYTEK electronic board has an alarm output with volt free contacts which activates for all the alarm status of which the system is equipped: dry running (power factor), maximum current, voltage too low, voltage too high, lack / phase sequence (three-phase model only).
