P-Series Variable Frequency Drive by Franklin Controls

Variable Speed Control is Just the Beginning; Everyone knows variable frequency drives save you money by varying motor speed to match demand. Franklin Controls automatic energy savings mode minimizes losses by optimizing the output power for higher efficiency. Under low load conditions, Sleep Mode deactivates the drive and its output – then awakens and reactivates output when demand rises to unlock additional savings. It also extends the life of the equipment.


  • New Firmware makes setup a snap 
  • Application based commissioning allows parameters to be automatically set based on industry standards 
  • Applications: Basic, circulating pump, supply fan, exhaust fan or cooling tower 
  • Selectable units include PSI, °F, °C, inWC, inM, Bar, mBar, Pa, kPa Belt loss protection 
  • Space Vector control for efficiency and long motor life 
  • Cleaner sine wave as compared to typical V/Hz control. 
  • Motors run cooler and last longer 
  • Advanced PID control (Pre-PID and Dual PID) 
  • Maintain a constant control of pressure, flow or water level. This function includes Pre-PID, Sleep and Wake up and output inverse sub-functions 
  • Increased energy savings by deactivating drive during low demand 
  • Flying start protection Prevents trips, rough starts, and drive damage from regenerative power from heavy fan inertia rotation
