Water Systems


Years of experience in designing and manufacturing our own motors mean that we also know how to protect them. Franklin’s single- and three-phase protective devices have been exclusively designed to help extend the life of Franklin motors. They monitor and diagnose motor load to prevent pump or motor failure due to adverse conditions such as low-flow wells, pump damage, clogging, bound pump, or power mishaps.

Single-Phase: Pumptec, QD Pumptec, Pumptec-Plus

Three-Phase: SubMonitor


The facts are clear and so are the choices. Franklin Electric’s Pumptec family provides the high performance pump protection you need deep down in the well. Designed to monitor motor load and supply voltage and to shut down the pump to prevent damage, Pumptec family products protect you water system investment.

Pumptec, QD Pumptec and Pumptec-Plus are the only single-phase load monitoring devices designed specifically for Franklin single-phase motors. They cover a broad range of ratings and fault conditions.


For Franklin QD Control Boxes

Exclusively designed for Franklin QD Relay Control Boxes, QD Pumptec is a solid state sensing device that monitors motor load and incoming power to automatically shut off a Franklin single-phase, 3-wire motor when related fault conditions are detected. QD Pumptec protects the life of your 4-inch pump and reduces the odds that you will ever have to see the motor again.

  • QD Pumptec allows the user to choose the standard factory calibration for underload or to calibrate to a particular system. Control knobs make it easy to adjust sensitivity and timeout sessions.
  • QD Pumptec easily plugs into 3-wire QD Relay Control Boxes in minutes, without additional wiring or tools.


For 2- & 3-wire single-phase motors, 1/3 to 1.5 hp.

Pumptec is a microcomputer-based pump protection device. It monitors motor load and power line conditions to provide protection against dry well conditions, waterlogged tanks, and abnormal line voltage conditions. Pumptec interrupts power to the motor whenever the load drops quickly or below a preset level. Indicator lights on the cover provide complete system status.

Additional features

  • Easily adjustable sensitivity settings
  • Run and fault indicator lights
