General technical features
Control unit with Liquid Crystal Display 2x16 line to visualize:
power factor (cosφ)
operating status of the system
Controller: multilingual, 8 operation modes, inputs 4÷20mA, 0-10V, digital ON-OFF input (float or pressure switches or external controls);
Auxiliary users activation in case of fault of the user in operation (models from 2 to 4 users);
Control of the users individually or in duty standby/assist (models from 2 to 4 users);
Dry running protection by power factor control (COS-FI);
Dry running protection by level probes (2 or 3 probes);
Electronic control of motor overcurrent;
Minimum voltage control : 180->415 (depending on the model);
Max voltage control: 220->460 (depending on the model);
Alarms control: dry running, motor in protection, motor overtemperature, board communication, voltage too low/high, phase sequence/failure, min/max level;
Ambient temperature: -5/+40 °C;
Relative humidity 50% at 40 °C (condensate free).
The peculiarity of the electronic board of the EXPRESS series is its modularity. In fact, it consists of a main board for the EXPRESS D 1 model for controlling 1 engine, and a series of boards called "expansions" which, added to the main board, expand the control board for controlling multiple engines.
The EXPRESS series features a practical LCD for reading the operating and alarm status, as well as LED lights and programming and command pushbuttons on the front of the panel.
The main screen allows you to view the active motors, the input voltage and the total current absorption of the motors.
If operations with analog signals are used, the main screen also shows the percentage, meters or bars of the input signal.
The EXPRESS panel is characterized by the multiplicity of functions available.
Basically there are 8 functions for different types of applications, selectable by accessing the set-up menu from the LCD display.
Function 1: Emptying with floats / pressure switches
Function 2: Emptying with level probes and floats / pressure switches
Function 3: Emptying with "COS-FI" (power factor) control
Function 4: Control with analog signal and floats / pressure switches
Function 5: Control with analog signal and level probes
Function 6: Control with analog signal and "COS-FI" (power factor) control
Function 7: Filling with level probes and floats / pressure switches
Function 8: Filling with level probes and "COS-FI" control
Software available in 5 languages (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish).
The innovation of EXPRESS is a dedicated App available for free both in Google Play and in the App Store and usable with the optional Bluetooth Express card to be installed quickly and easily on the motherboard of EXPRESS.
The app allows you to control and manage the operation of the electrical panel directly from your smartphone, with 3 different passwords for 3 different levels of authorizations. It also adds functions to the panel such as: hour meter, startings counter, last 20 alarm history, input and output status.
The EXPRESS electronic board has an alarm output with volt free contacts 5A – 250V. The messages of all the alarm status are shown on the display on the frontpanel, and using the bluetooth card you can view the alarm history in the app.
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 motors and the external controls can be connected to the terminal inside the panel.
