MANCHESTER CENTER, VERMONT (USA) – For the second time in as many months, Whale Water Systems has been recognized for its new Intelligent Control™ (IC), innovative electronic control circuitry that continuously monitors the performance of the Whale range of grey waste, fresh and bilge water pumps – and intuitively switches the pumps on and off when required.
At METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show) 2010 in Amsterdam last week, Whale IC received a Special Mention from the DAME Award Jury in the Machinery, Propulsion, Mechanical and Electrical Systems category. In September, the compact, clog-free Gulley IC received a NMMA Product Innovation Award in the Mechanical Systems category at IBEX (International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference) 2010 in Louisville, Kentucky.
Whale IC pumps have built-in sensors that monitor relevant aspects of the system:
• Grey IC senses water levels with its Single outlet Gulley IC and dual Inlet Manifold IC, making a fully automatic waste system when connected to the Gulper IC.
• The new Fresh IC freshwater pump prevents rapid cycling without sacrificing flow and performance. The pump monitors back pressure, energy consumption and flow and turns off only when no flow is required. It can run dry without damage and eliminates the need for an accumulator tank.
• With Bilge IC, the Strainer IC senses water in the bilge and communicates with the remote mounting Gulper IC, which switches on and off automatically. The small footprint strainer fits into tight bilge spaces.
All easy-to-install, low maintenance, trouble-free Whale IC pumps and accessories feature: pre-wired, linked components, integrated sensors and marine grade waterproof electric connections; and soft start/stop, digital switching, less on/off cycling and no moving parts for longer system life.
