MGK 65/370 DC Pool Pump
Like all pool pumps of today, the motor turns a plastic rotor, inside a plastic stator, and moves water. The new rotor design is wider, this helps to keep pine needles and other debris from getting stuck in it. The pump housing has a large debris basket with clear see through cover. The pump intake and discharge are both 2 inch.
The housing of the DC motor is made of aluminum to allow for maximum cooling. This is a Brushless motor, and requires no maintenance. It provides dependable service, and quiet operation.
Solar controller with LED display, internal switching, and manual speed control dial to adjust the speed of the pump.
- Low Voltage Protection (Automatic)
- Over Current Protection (Automatic and Fused)
- Control of Motor Running Speed (Speed Regulator)
- MPPT Function (Maximum Power Point Tracking)
- Battery Backup and Charging
You can run this system with or without a battery backup. The controller has two modes, Solar, and battery.
In solar mode, you can run run the pump directly from the panels. In battery mode, the pump will run from the batteries, and the solar power is used to charge the batteries. The pump will not run directly from the solar panels in battery mode. When the batteries have recovered sufficiently, the pump will restart and the solar power will continue to recharge the batteries.
This system is designed for the DIY backyard enthusiast. It could not be any simpler to install. If you can properly install batteries in a flashlight, you can hook this system up. Positive to positive, and negative to negative. All terminals for solar panels, battery (if using), pump, are tagged, and clearly marked +pos and -neg.
The instruction manual that comes with this package has great diagrams, pictures, and instructions. To properly follow instructions, and test each connection as you proceed, you should have a voltmeter on hand. An understanding of polarity and common sense is all that is required.
When dealing with electricity, you should always use precautions, and never handle live current. If you have any doubt as to your ability, please consult an electrician.
