Swordfish Plus


Swordfish Plus

The Swordfish pump control system provides fully integrated cascading pressure control for pump stations operating up to 6 pumps.

Easy to use and suitable for any type of pump or pump combination, the Swordfish controller is specifically designed to help improve the overall efficiency, operation and protection of multi-pump stations.

It offers both system and individual pump protection which can be configured to suit any system. Alarms are displayed on screen and fault resets can be conducted either on site or via remote control.
