Matsuko Pond Equipment Switch Box Timer + PumpGuard
Matsuko Pond Equipment Switch Box Timer + Pump Guard
The Matsuko Switch Box Timer + PumpGuard allows you to control five independent pond equipment devices by turning them on or off plus the added feature of programmable timing. The Switch Box Timer + PG also has the added bonus of PumpGuard and a power consumption monitor.
PumpGuard is smart technology that helps to avoid pump blocks or overloads. Line 1 on every Matsuko Switch Box Timer + PG is set to automatically learn how the new pump behaves when it is first connected and turned on through the timer. The PumpGuard will run the pump at different power levels for a twenty-minute period until it understands its normal operation, once this has been learnt the PumpGuard goes into monitoring mode. PumpGuard will monitor the pump all day everyday looking out for signs of overloading or cutting out.
PumpGuard detects pump burn-out and will run the pump on a lower intensity programme to see if this will correct the problem. If a solution cannot be found, PumpGuard will disconnect the power and save your pump from damaging itself further. In this situation PumpGuard sounds a stop alarm (the signal for a pump failure alarm is a fast beeping sound plus a red LED on line one) and the display shows “pump fail“.
Matsuko Switch Box Timer + PG also features a power consumption monitor. The digital display on the screen gives two electrical consumption readings. The Switch Box Timer + PG gives a constant reading on line 1. The second reading on the screen shows a total consumption of all the lines being used by all the devices on the Switch Box through lines 1 – 5. To get a reading for an individual line simply switch off every line you do not want to monitor.
The consumption monitor gives an indicative reading with an accuracy of +/-5%.
