    • Wide range, adjustable, class 5-30 electronic overload
    • Dry pump detection protects your pump and motor from adverse conditions and allows for time-based automatic restart with well recovery mode
    • Industry-leading motor protection for the following conditions:
    • Over/under power (dry-run)
    • Over/under voltage protection
    • Voltage phase loss
    • Voltage
    • Current phase unbalance
    • Locked rotor
    • Cycle fault
    • Ground Fault
    • Easy access to input and output terminals
    • 32-character, backlit, NEMA 4x, wash-down rated screen mounted on front of panel allowing for safe viewing of conditions while motor is running
    • Motor insulation check

    Real-time & Date-stamped Fault Logging

    • Unit ships with a pre-programmed real time clock with a 10-year battery backup
    • Contains separate fault, configuration change, and start logs. Independent logs allow user to see last fault even if it occurred years ago
    • Fault log tracks 150 faults with date and time stamp accurate down to the second:
    • Allows users to diagnose power problems and prove them to your power provider
    • Unit will give users a ‘snapshot’ of conditions at the time of fault, such as line to line voltage and current, alarms present, and I/0 status
    • Format of time stamping example: 7/7/16 10:15:24

    Application-based Setup

    • SubMonitor Connect is an advanced, comprehensive, 3 phase motor protection relay that allows users to dial in protection and automation with extreme accuracy and parameter depth. However, SubMonitor Connect also has a streamlined Basic Setup Wizard to allows user to get up and running quickly
    • 9 simple steps to program unit
    • Users select between Submersible, Surface, or Custom and SubMonitor prepopulates protection parameters accordingly
    • Confirm basic motor info, key protection info, time to get started

    Automation Ready - Advanced Pump Control

    • 12-240 VAC/VDC wet input for remote start/stop
    • Dry contacts for auto run/shutdown or high float/low float
    • Modbus RTU communication
    • Automatic fault reset and on and off delay settings
    • Automatic fault reset and on and off delay settings

    Heavy-duy Industrial-grade Construction

    • Outdoor rated, gasketed, powder coated, NEMA 3R enclosure designed in house by Franklin Electric to optimize layout and functionality
    • UL 489 circuit breaker disconnect for branch and short circuit protection
    • No fuses required saving time and money
    • Lockable handle
  • NEMA 3R, SubMonitor Connect Starter (With Service Entrance Circuit Breaker Disconnect)
