  • In Australia, most pressure pumps are controlled by one of two simple controllers – pressure switches and fixed electronic controllers otherwise known as the simple on/off switch. Even though the simplicity of these switches are good at protecting the pump from over use and running dry, the hydraulic design on most pumps means the bigger the pump the more pressure goes through the controller. Resulting poor pump control may lead to pump overload or seizure. As the pump is the key piece of equipment required for fluid distribution, it is vital to ensure the pump can be monitored and controlled effectively.

  • The nXt Controller series by iCon helps to alleviate control issues experienced by the pump. The nXt Controllers by iCon use a smart hydraulic design taking the flexibility of a pressure switch and the electronic controller integrated into an intuitive user interface to produce a better pump controller. Having a better pressure pump controller like the iCon nXt results in a: •Better pump performance •Longer pump life •Better user interface •Better user experience The nXt Controller can be easily fitted to new and existing pressure pumps using a simple and easy push-n-connect fitting with a U clip.

  • The nXt Controller series by iCon is ideal for pumps supplying clean, non-volatile liquids without fibres or solids in applications such as: •Household water supply •Irrigation •Water transfer •Washing systems •Pressure boosting The nXt Controller is available in three different models to provide the user with the correct model for most pressure water applications and can be readily purchased and easily fitted to most pressure pumps.

  • •Digital display gives you a real time indication of system pressure •Anti-cycle protection •Dry run protection with auto restart function that tests for water availability every 24 hours •Anti-seize function if pump has not operated for the last 24 hours •Controller automatically restarts pump after a power failure •Easy assembly and removal using push-n-connect fitting with U clip •Complies to AS/NZ 4020 drinking water standard •Over pressure protection turns pump off when 10 bar is reached •Overload protection
