The LPD-B2 is designed to operate a simplex lift station with alarm. This control can be used for pump up or pump down operation. The pump operation is on demand with a two float set up. The two floats are Pump On/Off float and High Water Alarm float. This control does not have a relay, and all pump amperage will go through the On/Off-Pump Float. This control is designed to operate pumps with internal capacitors and a float switch that is already connected to the pump. If using external capacitor pumps, the capacitor kit from the pump manufacturer must be used.
This control panel will operate a 208/240 VAC single phase 2 HP pump or smaller. There are two circuit breakers in this control. The pump uses a 20 Amp double pole circuit breaker, and the alarm uses a 10 Amp single pole circuit breaker. The alarm is designed to be used with a float switch. When the float switch closes, the 360 degrees top mounted red alarm light will come on, and the Piezoelectric buzzer will sound. There are alarm test and buzzer silence switches mounted in the door of the enclosure. This control can be used to pump sewage from a septic holding tank to a treatment unit or for pumping effluent from a low pressure dosing septic system.
The enclosure has a NEMA rating of 4X which protects from falling dirt, falling liquids, hose-directed water, and corrosive agents. The 8”x6”x4” enclosure is made of Polycarbonate and has a hinged lockable door with latches and included screws to secure the door if required. All electrical components are mounted inside the enclosure on an aluminum back plate.
