Hydrotouch Soft Starters

Hydrotouch Logo

The HydroTOUCH range of soft starters is an market leading, second generation multi-pump controller designed to operate up to 12 pumps. It features a wide range of advanced control options and a highly flexible array or input and output signals, both digital and analogue. Incorporating an easy set-up wizard and a user friendly touch screen, operation of these sophisticated controllers is a breeze!

HydroTOUCH controllers have been designed for three different control operations - Pressure, Level, and Temperature, and are highly customisable to suit your specific application.

Function Features

  • Operation:
    • Maximum run timer and auto alternation of pump duty
    • Anti seize timer runs pumps periodically during low use
    • Pump 1 can be configured as a main pump, jacking pump or a mixer
    • Maximum idle time ensures minimum tank level is maintained
    • Staggered pump start and stop
    • Pump limiting
    • Static lead pump for applications with low average flows but high peak flows
    • Supply tank level monitoring (if using level transducer in supply tank instead of backup transducer)
    • Manual override timer control when system is in fault shutdown
  • Fault protection:
    • Pump overload and prime loss shut-down
    • Automatic changeover on pump fault
    • High and low level/pressure shut-down
    • Supply tank low level protection
    • Pump cycle protection
    • Transducer redundancy switches to backup transducer if first one fails (if using secondary tansducer)
