For a center pivot to be used, the terrain needs to be reasonably flat; but one major advantage of center pivots over alternative systems that use gravity flow is the ability to function in undulating country. Fuji Electric VFDs and Instrumentation & Control products are essential as they lower labor costs, reduce water run-off and soil erosion, and provides uniformity of watering on the entire surface. Scroll down to view which AC Drives and Instrumentation & Control products are right for you.
Fuji Electric drives can operate from single phase to 3 phase up to 460VAC and can operate at an optimal speed throughout the application. This in turn can reduce overall power and energy consumption in order to minimize operating costs. Fuji Electric is one of the few major manufacturers utilizing our own power components internally, providing consistency and compatibility for future upgrades and reliability, with an industry leading 3-year warranty.
Features & Benefits:
- Fuji Electric VFDs varies the pump speed to provide constant discharge pressure and are reliable and by adding to a pump can provide consistent pressure control
- Cuts operating costs and adding flexibility to an existing irrigation system also consumes less energy input and have the same pressure and/or flow with more precise control
- Eliminates water hammer in the mainline and less wear and tear on the motor and pump bearings; also come with remote start so pumps can be started or stopped anywhere
- Valves can be turned on or off in the field and the VFD-controlled pump will respond automatically, saving trips to the pump
