SubDrive/MonoDrive NEMA 3R Models

Wi-Fi connectivity is a feature in the drive that enables a connection to be made with a single mobile device (smartphone and tablet). This connection can be used to monitor drive characteristics; adjust advanced settings; and view and email fault history and configuration changes. The Mobile app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play, depending on the device being used.

Monitoring

This page allows for real-time monitoring of the system including:

  • System Status*
  • Output Current
  • Motor Speed*
  • Input Voltage
  • System Information (Drive Model, Hardware Version, Software Version)

Setup

This page allows for the configuration of additional drive features including:

  • Drive
  • Output*
  • Motor Size*
  • Pump Size*
  • Underload Sensitivity*
  • Underload Off Time
  • Minimum Frequency
  • Maximum Frequency
  • Bump Mode
  • Tank Size Mode
