The NEW and improved Matsuko Switch Box Timer With Pump Guard provides even greater flexibility and impressive extra features as the premium Switch Box in the Matsuko range. The Switch Box Timer + PumpGuard allows independent control of five lines via the simple easy to use on/off buttons with the added feature that each line can be programmed to switch on or off up to 5 times per day. The Switch Box Timer + PG also has the added bonus of PumpGuard and a power consumption monitor.
What is PumpGuard?
PumpGuard is patent pending, smart technology that helps to avoid possible disasters occurring when your pump blocks or overloads. Line 1 on every Matsuko Switch Box Timer + PG is set to automatically learn how the new pump behaves when it is first connected and turned on through the timer. The PumpGuard will run the pump at different power levels for a twenty-minute period until it understands its normal operation, once this has been learnt the PumpGuard goes into monitoring mode. PumpGuard will monitor the pump all day everyday looking out for signs of overloading or cutting out.
A pump that constantly keeps restarting can easily burn itself out. PumpGuard detects this situation and will run the pump on a lower intensity programme to see if this will correct the problem. If a solution cannot be found, PumpGuard will disconnect the power and save your pump from damaging itself further. In this situation PumpGuard sounds a stop alarm (the signal for a pump failure alarm is a fast beeping sound plus a red LED on line one) and the display shows “pump fail“.
Matsuko Switch Box Timer + PG also features a power consumption monitor, the digital display on the screen gives two electrical consumption readings. The Switch Box Timer + PG gives a constant reading on line 1. The second reading on the screen shows a total consumption of all the lines being used by all the devices on the Switch Box through lines 1 – 5. To get a reading for an individual line simply switch off every line you do not want to monitor.
The Matsuko Switch Box Timer + PG is great for controlling multiple pond, garden and aquarium appliances, each line will take appliances up to 1500 watts with the maximum load of the unit being 3000 watts. Matsuko Switch Boxes are not only stylish but they are built to last thanks to their robust and durable construction. All Matsuko Switch Boxes are weatherproof and safe for outdoor installation being rated IP56 (to IP66 dependent upon installation method).
