The new IPS 4000 automates and optimizes multi-pump installations in a range of different plant configurations. Moreover, it provides sequences for variable-primary, secondary or tertiary pumping system applications and it delivers leading energy savings, with patented Parallel Sensorless pump staging technology.
Pre-configured to leverage the capabilities of Design Envelope, the technology embedded in Armstrong pumps, the new IPS 4000 offers fast and simple setup for the most cost-effective and efficient pump control results. The IPS 4000 is compatible with existing building automation systems and ships pre-programmed for easy installation and set-up.
Commenting on the value provided by the new IPS 4000, Peter Thomsen, Director, Building Systems Solutions, stated, “The new IPS 4000 is a great control and automation solution. In particular, it will add value in any building that has short peak loads or that needs a hybrid solution to provide both Sensorless staging and critical zone sensors.”
