New PS30 Load Monitor from ITT PumpSmart Improves Equipment Protection and Worker Safety

ITT Inc.’s PRO Services introduced the PumpSmart PS30, a next-generation load monitor that uses a pump’s motor as a sensor to protect industrial equipment from common machine failures. Using advanced logic, the user-friendly PS30 shuts down a pump by stopping its motor at the first signs of equipment malfunction, avoiding costly damages and operational disruptions while protecting workers.

Suitable for industries including petrochemical and bulk chemical, green energy, and municipal applications, new features of the PS30 monitor include a large-format, externally mounted HMI screen to review data and programming, event backlogging capabilities, and the capacity to manage voltages from 100 to 500 VAC with a single model.

In addition, three independent alarm relays have been included to notify operators and send a signal to the plant’s distributed control system when failure modes like cavitation or dead head are detected. Easy to mount and maintain, the monitor is also configurable via Modbus, a common serial communication protocol used with programmable logic controllers.
