The Grundfos Hydro MPC ( Multi-Pass Control) is pre-engineered packaged system designed to simplify and optimize pumping in both no matter the applications. It can be used in a wide array of different applications including pressure boosting, HVAC, municipal water transfer, industrial process, and many other.
This flexible, compact system includes everything you need to plug in pump; pumps, VFDs, controls, gauges, sensors, and more. It can be configured with 2–6 pumps and is expandable to grow with your building. Plus, it has a smaller footprint compared to most existing pumps and will fit on an existing housekeeping pad in most cases, making it an ideal choice for not only new builds, but also retrofits.
No matter your application, the Hydro MPC makes it easier for the following reasons:
- Single power connection
- Single source responsibility
- Pre-piped, pre-wired and pre-tested
- No on-site assembly
- No alignment needed
- Self-optimizing intelligent controls
- Easy BMS integration
The Grundfos CU 352 controller can evaluate constantly changing building demands and simultaneously monitor the pump’s power, pressure and curve data, giving you the highest level of hydraulic optimization for your system. This cascade control is designed to distribute demand over multiple pumps for wider range, unparalleled efficiency and exceptional performance.
The CU 352 offers application optimized and customizable software that includes: built-in redundancy and monitoring settings, along with data logging capabilities, and pump sequencing based on highest efficiency.
HVAC Specific Controller: If you are looking for an HVAC specific controller you can upgrade to the Control HVAC for ability to control up to 26 zones and includes chiller bypass control.
Easier Installation & Maintenance
The pre-packaged Hydro MPC is ready to go out of the box — just plug and pump. Think about the time you’ll save by eliminating the sourcing of parts, and the work of piping, wiring, grouting, alignment and testing. Plus, maintenance is easy with our newly designed cartridge seal that can be changed in only 15 minutes.
Easier BMS Integration
Field-built systems can require several communication points, and every connection is an installation charge that affects your bottom line. The Hydro MPC utilizes a CIM / CIU interface with single poll functionality that pings the device once for over 30 points of data and control between pumps and BMS via SCADA, bus protocols like Modbus, Ethernet, BACnet, Profibus or LON capability lets you import the pump system interface to your desktop for back-office control.
Easier Data Collection
Enjoy greater flexibility in how you choose to collect data. Use the built-in sensor technology on the Hydro MPC for easy basic data collection without the need for additional sensors. Choose a redundant primary sensor for extra piece of mind or use additional sensors for optimized control. Get more accurate control and avoid issues power-based only pump control brings, i.e., hunting.
