The ATV312 Solar is a new drive we have introduced into the Australian market which is used for pumps with photovoltaic arrays,

The ATV312:
●Use Sunshine power to provide the drive
●Provided on DC Bus terminals
●No need battery

●Compatibility with most of Solar panels and Water pumps
●All types of Solar panels (Thin film, Mono crystalline, Polycrystalline)
●Water pumps driven by 3-phases Asynchronous motors

●Easy to use, to size and to commission Automatic restart

Possibility to switch on Grid main supply.

Note that if you have a single phase motor then unfortunately we can't help you. The motor of the pump must be three phase asynchronous and compatible with variable speed drive operation.
