The Newton Control Panel-Pro is a class-leading pump control panel with many unique features, which has been designed by Newton Waterproofing Systems to provide the ultimate in pump operation and diagnostics.
The panel features interfaces for use with Newton battery back-up and telemetry systems as well as connections to whole house alarm and monitoring systems.
The Control panel PCB is split with two separate circuits, ensuring that pumping will continue even if one of the control circuits should fail. This effectively means that Newton Control Panel-Pro is two control panels in one case, offering unrivalled redundancy.
Self diagnostic programs test the pumps on a weekly basis to ensure correct pump performance, with the appointed service engineer automatically informed of any detected problem with either of the pumps if the Newton Dialer telemetry system is installed.
The Newton Control Panel-Pro will operate a maximum of two 750W 230V AC pumps. The panel is supplied with a vertical water level float switch and high water alarm float switch. The panel is designed to be used with an optional Newton Pump Converter.
Automatic alternate duty cycle – Each time the main float switch calls for a pump to start, the panel will alternate the command to each pump to share the pump wear
Two independent power supply inputs – One for grid mains and the other for a battery backed power supply via an approved Newton Power Converter. In the event of a grid mains failure, the panel automatically switches to battery power. On power restore, the panel will automatically switch back to normal grid power mode and recharge the battery or batteries.
Alarm on power failure – Panel will alarm on mains failure. The mains fail beep will not sound in mains fail until a pump operation has occurred, or if the pumps are not used, the sounder will beep after 12 Hours. This is to prevent unnecessary alarms, mainly at night. An alarm output is sent to trigger the Newton voice and text Dialer (included with purchase code CP7) or home alarm at the time of the mains power failure
Automatic pump duty assist – If one pump cannot cope with the volume of water entering the sump, the second pump will automatically start to increase the pumping capability. The time period before the second pump start is adjustable (master timer setting) to accommodate different sized sumps. Option to prevent both pumps running at the same time if the system is running from back up battery
Automatic current monitoring for each pump – The panel checks that the pump is using the correct current when the pump has been switched on. If the current is too low or a pump cable has been disconnected the panel will automatically switch to the second pump. The Current in Amps is displayed for running pumps. As well as the panel audible alarm, An alarm output is sent to trigger the voice or text dialer (CP7 only) or home alarm at the time of a pump failure. There is an approx 30 second delay before the sounder operates after a pump fault is detected. This is to allow the panel to check there is a pump fault and to not beep the sounder unless the fault is confirmed
Automatic main float checking – If the main float fails or becomes disconnected, the alarm float automaticallytakes over as the main level control float (preset to 10 seconds). If in main float fail mode, the panel will still alternate both pumps via the alarm float. An alarm output is sent to trigger to the voice or text dialer (CP7 only) in the event of main float failure
Automatic alarm float checking – An alarm checking signal is continually monitored to confirm the alarm float cables have been fitted correctly, not been tampered with or have been disconnected
Each pump has it’s own totally separate electronic circuit – This allows for one pump to still operate if a fault develops in the pump that could damage the panel electronics. An alarm output is sent to trigger the voice or text dialer (CP7 only) in the event of a controller failure
Automatic testing of each pump every 7 days – Test ensures the pumps are used each week and will report any problems detected during the 3 second test with an alarm. Each control circuit has its own independent timer to ensure that each pump is tested at different times.
The panel features interfaces for use with Newton power back-up and telemetry systems as well as connections to whole house alarm and monitoring systems.
