Franklin SubDrive Solar Bore Pump Kit

SAVE MONEY ON PANELS - A Solar Bore Pump requires minimum Solar Panels compared to a normal electric bore pump, saving you money!

Infield tested and designed to withstand tough Australian conditions, SubDrive Solar utilises Franklin's well proven and quality products:

  • Standard 4" pump
  • Standard 4" motor
  • SubDrive Solar Controller
  • Flow Switch
  • 30, 45, 70, 150 & 270LPM
  • Max 200M head

Now add in;

Features:

  • High Flow System for faster tank fill and significant water output
  • Proven pump and motor technology and reliability
  • DC and AC power inputs with auto-switching to generator back-up
  • Allows the use of new solar array or retrofit to existing array (subject to size and performance check)
  • Simple installation and no required maintenance

 

How the Solar Pump Works

The SubDrive Solar system provides water in remote applications where electrical grid power is either unreliable or unavailable.

The system pumps water using a high-voltage DC power source such as an array of solar panels.
Since the sun is only available during certain hours of the day and only in good weather conditions, the water is generally pumped into a storage tank.

Two level switches can be installed inside the tank to regulate the water level. A flow switch detects if flow is below critical levels while the pump is still running. This serves as an indication that the well/ bore has run dry, or that insufficient power is available to continue pumping. The system will shut down to protect the pump and motor until the well/bore, or adequate electric power, has recovered.

The SubDrive Solar controller runs at variable speeds to match the changing power available from the PV solar array. Variable speed operation means there is no in-rush or surge of energy during the pump/motor start-up, helping to eliminate wear on the motor and pumping system. A leading cause of pump motor failure is the stress applied to the motor during a full voltage start-up. The SubDrive Solar variable speed operation ramps up the speed smoothly, which eliminates starting stress. This feature enhances long-term motor reliability.

Solar Pump Selection
Pump selection is different with solar pumps than electric pumps. To select a solar pump you need to know the following:

  • Your Location in Australia – To calculate the average daylight hours where you are pumping.
  • Output Requirements - The Volume of Water that you need per day or the Flow Rate in LPM.
  • Input Requirements – The Total Dynamic Head (Fill in the form below). Please be aware that the Total Dynamic Head is not just the depth that the pump is set down the bore or well.  It is a combination of the Static Head, Pipe Friction Loss and Discharge Pressure.

With this information, a Solar Pump can be selected, which will be a 0.55kw, a 1.1kw or a 2.2kw model depending on your requirements.


Use your existing 240V Electric AC Bore Pump and run it on a Solar System. You will need a larger array of panels and/or a battery and inverter.

You can also use your existing solar panels if you have them.

I can assist with any of these enquiries.
