The Grundfos line of LCSE split-coupled end suction pumps with integrated motor, drive, and control feature the MLE variable speed motor in ranges from 3 to 30 HP in 3,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 3 to 25 HP in 1,800 RPM. Available in 21 different models, the fully integrated, intelligent LCSE pumping system offers energy savings of up to 50%, according to the company.
Ideally suited for new commercial HVAC/R applications and retrofits, the energy?optimized system consists of a controller, VFD, and standard asynchronous motor all in one. In addition, the LCSE features a footprint 35% smaller than that of a frame-mounted design. The LCSE also features Grundfos GO technology, which allows building managers to remotely control and monitor the pump from a smart phone or tablet.
