A variable frequency drive is an electronic device that allows you to start, stop, and control the speed of a three phase motor. It is also a motor starter as it is equipped with overload protection. Read more »
What is the difference between a 'new surplus' motor and a 'factory new' motor?
Our New Surplus electric motors are offered at lower prices and come with our 90-day warranty.
Factory New products are competitively priced and come with a manufacturers warranty.
Variable frequency drives (VFDs or inverters) now play an important part in major industry.
Within the last 10 years they have been perfected to control and vary the speed of 3 phase electric motors. They serve many purposes, besides speed control. Homeowners and hobbyist alike, who have lathes or milling machines with a 3 phase motor, usually don't have 3 phase power to operate. These VFDs (instead of using a rotary phase converter) can now be used to convert single phase power to 3 phase power. Read more »
Flowserve IPS Tempo Pump Control Variable Frequency Drive
New Surplus with 90 day warranty & printed user manual
An Intelligent Pumping System
That is Easy to Use
IPS TEmpo is a variable frequency drive (VFD), Reliance model GV6000 that has been custom programmed or pre-engineered to provide end users with advanced pump system optimization, control and protection.
Implementation of IPS Temp into a pump system is made easier because of the special Operator Interface Module (OIM) that had been designed specifically for pumps. The OIM has an intiutive menu driven structure that makes it easy to implement the pump optimization features. Variable inputs are in units common to pump users.
The Flowserve IPS Tempo is pre-engineered
specifically for pumps, making the benefits of variable
frequency drive (VFD) technology more accessible to
pump users. By incorporating pump-specific system
optimization software, an industrial grade AC drive and
intuitive menu-driven user interface, IPS Tempo offers
protection, reliability and ease of use not possible
with other variable frequency drives. Most importantly,
IPS Tempo enables end users to lower their total cost
of pump ownership.
Pump Optimization and Protection
in a Fraction of the Time
With immensely complex manuals and hundreds of different
programmable parameters, the set-up and configuration of
a typical variable frequency drive is a daunting task. Even
experienced users require considerable time to set up a
standard AC drive.
That’s not the case with IPS Tempo. With the most common
pump-specific parameters (capacity, head, etc.) built in and
its pump-specific Quick-Start set-up wizard, a typical user
can configure IPS Tempo in less than 30 minutes – a
fraction of the time it would take to set up a typical VFD.
That means easier, faster and more reliable implementation.
Benefits of IPS Tempo
Unique pump-specific user interface
Quick-start set-up and configuration
Pre-engineered pump protection features
Industrial grade VFD
Soft-start and soft-stop capability
Applications and Markets
IPS Tempo is ideal for critical pump applications as
well as ones with varying system parameters such
as tank car unloading and multi-service pumps.
Applicable markets include:
Two Analog Inputs monitor process variables for
speed control and pump protection logic
Two Analog Outputs are used to provide analog
control signals to other equipment or for remote
monitoring of selected VFD parameters
Three Digital Outputs are used to activate external
devices such as starting auxiliary equipment or
annunciating an alarm
Six Digital Inputs are standard with IPS Tempo.
Three are dedicated to drive operation. Three are
available to use with limit switches for condition
monitoring and protection
Removable Numerical and Graphical LCD Keypad
is backlit to aid readability. Its TAB menu is intuitive
and easy to navigate with minimal keystrokes
Modern Modular Construction incorporates
both regulator and I/O electronics into a removable
cassette, resulting in easy installation, repair and
Compact Bookshelf Design requires minimal space
