More than 60% of all reported support calls and problems associated with electronic dispensers arise from poor electrical installation. The reliability and safe efficient function of your LPG station is your life blood. It if doesn’t work, you’re losing money. Hours and dollars spent on initial installation and down-time troubleshooting only make the losses greater. When building new Autogas stations with pumps requiring 3 phase power, but only 230vac single phase is available, it is even more complicated.
The ParaFOUR P4-SECP VFD series integrated Station Electrical Control Panels, is the solution. Integrating ALL electrical control elements into a single rack or panel mount box, to centralize all control of the station. The FVD control panel line is capable of 3 phase service from a single phase 230 vac site. The VFD gives the additional benefit of soft starts with programmable ramp up, contributing to longer pump and motor life (should be used with inverter or drive rated motors) they are designed for running larger Autogas Fleet & Retail stations with 2 or more dispensers and 1 pump with 5-7.5hp three phase motors. Options for multiple pumps are available.
