Pump controller type ABS PC 242

A real cost-saver for low-budget applications

The PC 242 is a two-pump controller designed mainly for use in either gravitation or pressurized municipal wastewater pumping stations. It has many advanced features to minimize costs in the pumping station throughout its entire life cycle.

Pump Controller Type ABS PC 242
Main design features

The controller comes with a graphical display offering a full user interface, ideal for low-budget applications. Level sensing in the pit may be performed using either float switches or a 4-20 mA sensor.

Use the graphical user interface to view alarms, manually control pumps, or change settings. You can also perform these tasks using the AquaProg configuration software running on a PC, connected either directly to the local service port or remotely via a modem, for example.
