The LPD-CT is designed to be a simplex lift station with alarm. This control can be used for pump up or pump down operation. The pump operation is controlled by a Grasslin Pin Timer. With this timer, the pump can be operated on 15-minute intervals at any time of the day. This type of system is used mainly for night time operation where you only want the pump to operate during certain hours.
This control panel will operate a 120VAC single phase ½ HP pump or smaller. There are two circuit breakers in this control. The pump uses a 20 Amp single 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 is mainly used to pump sewage from a septic holding tank to a treatment unit using a solid handling pump, or pumping treated effluent water from a septic holding tank to the dispersal area.
The enclosure has a NEMA rating of 4X which provides protection from falling dirt, falling liquids, hose-directed water and corrosive agents.
The 10”x8”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 aluminium back plate.
