New Control Products Available


SMP_OpenFranklin Electric’s recent acquisition of Cerus Industrial, now renamed Franklin Control Systems, has enabled the addition of two exciting new control products to our groundwater pumping line: the SubMonitor Pump Starter (SMP) and the Economy Pump Starter (EPS).

Designed for 3-phase pumping applications, the SubMonitor Pump Starter features built-in SubMonitor protection which guards against the following conditions:

  • Underload (dry-run protection)
  • Over/under voltage
  • Phase unbalance
  • Rapid cycling
  • Reverse phase
  • Motor overheat on Subtrol-equipped motors

In addition, the SMP offers class 10 electronic overload protection, integrated data logging, a circuit breaker disconnect (service entrance rated), and industrial grade construction for rugged conditions.

The Economy Pump Starter is designed specifically for 575V pumping applications and includes advanced protective features such as phase loss, phase imbalance, stall protection, and manual reset. It comes equipped with a class 1-30 electronic overload and a standard control transformer (CPT).
