Pump Control Training Videos

This pump control series of eight tutorial videos introduces types of pump controls; covers the basics of contactor, smart starter, and variable frequency drive technologies; and discusses attributes of each, what they do to help protect pumps and connected motors, and how each technology might be applied and why. Maintenance and energy-savings issues also are covered.

Long-time automation trainer Doug Bell, Interconnecting Automation, works with Eaton Corporation’s Kevin Trimmer, product manager for motor protection, and Tom Neuberger, product manager for variable frequency drives and soft starters, to provide the information in a no-nonsense format, showing technologies and using basic diagrams and graphs with a facility pump room as a backdrop.

Quizzes are available for each video along with a certificate of completion for the series, for continuing education units. Sponsored by Eaton Corporation and produced by CFE Media publications, these videos are designed to be noncommercial and educational. Total runtime for the eight videos: About 50 minutes.
