Speaks your language
The F600 drive is tuned to suit your every need, optimised for minimal setup time yet sacrificing none of the flexibility. Whatever the challenge, our dedicated approach to clear parameter naming and structuring ensures we not only have the answers, but in a format you’ll understand.
Energy savings, unlocking the potential
On average, 85% of a pump’s life-cycle cost is attributed to its energy consumption, therefore, optimising the energy usage can mean a significant reduction in the total cost of ownership. The F600 drive thrives on delivering more efficient ways of operating your variable torque application. You’ll see the benefits in reduced running costs and lower energy requirements.
The F600 can also control the most efficient motors available, meeting IE5 efficiency levels, such as the Nidec Leroy Somer Dyneo+ hybrid permanent-magnet motor. With all of this combined, the F600 is your best choice to save you money every day.
Engineered for your application
The F600 Pump Drive offers a host of dedicated features including dry-run prevention, pipe fill, pump cleaning, over-cycling protection and level switch control. A range of different control modes covering single pumps and also different parallel pump configurations make Control Techniques’ F600 a truly versatile solution.
Free 5 year warranty
To share our confidence in the reliability of Control Techniques, drives in the F600 range are eligible for Control Techniques’ extended warranty, at no extra cost.
It is a testament to our exceptional track record for reliability, giving you total peace of mind that your investment is protected and your site will continue to run uninterrupted.

Features for Control Techniques Pump Drive F600 55kW 216A 200/240Vac 3PH
Unmatched total cost of ownership
With innovative protective features and extended equipment life
The F600 has comprehensive pump and motor protection features which minimise unplanned downtime, improving overall effectiveness and guaranteeing better value for money. Bring true resilience to your application and easily ride-through component failures.
Automatic Error Recovery
In the unlikely event of detecting an error with your pump, the F600 has the ability to dynamically recover and resume normal operation.
If the feedback exceeds the limits defined for your application, the F600 has the ability to raise an alarm or stop the drive to protect your equipment and preserve its lifetime.
Transducer Loss Protection
In the event of losing connection to the transducer, the F600 can stop, continue to run at a fixed speed or ignore the fault depending on the application requirements.
Fire mode allows the drive to disable all trips and to continue to run uninterrupted during emergency events if the application requires.
Save on energy through a wide range of energy features
The F600 is 98% efficient, meaning very little energy is lost in power conversion.
Even more, the real savings potential gets unlocked by the F600’s built-in features that can further reduce energy consumption:
Low load savings
The F600 helps maximise energy savings when demand is low. Activing Control Techniques’ leading-edge Low Load Power Saving function, the drive dynamically reduces the voltage applied to reduce losses in the motor and make the system more efficient.
When demand falls below a specified set-point the drive will automatically enter sleep mode and restart itself once demand rises above the set-point. Not only does this greatly reduce the amount of energy consumed, it also saves on equipment wear to preserve its lifetime.
The F600 features optimised control for your flow applications
Prevent spikes in pressure at start-up using a controlled ramp, to protect your piping system and the pump itself.
Prevent the pump running dry by checking the load against a threshold; with flexible configurations to dynamically adjust output, set an alarm or stop the drive.
Optimise drive, motor and pump sizing, and regulate pump wear by limiting the number of start-stops per hour. Flexible configurations allow to dynamically alter cycling reference limits, set an alarm or stop the drive when a limit is reached.
Where there is no-flow or low-flow, the F600 drive can automatically enter sleep mode to save energy, based on the feedback of a pulsed flow transducer, or triggered by a flow switch, or detected by the software alone.
Live, continuous monitoring of the system is used to trigger an automatic drive-based cleansing cycle to clear the pump impeller and help avoid maintenance costs on cleaning pump blockages.
Level switch control
Level switches provide critical protection for tanks in the event of the level reaching a “high” switch, whereby the pump is stopped, or a “low” switch, whereby the pump is started, to ensure pumping within tank levels.
Pump Control Modes | Flexible support for every system
Control Techniques’ Single Pump mode is an effective and versatile variable speed control solution for maintaining a constant set-point in a single pump configuration.
- Fire mode allows the drive to disable all trips and to continue to run uninterrupted during emergency events if the application requires
Cascade mode allows the F600 to operate with up to 4 assist pumps to aid the primary pump when required.
- Energy usage is optimised whereby the assist pumps are only enabled when demand reaches sufficient levels.
- Assist pumps are used alternately to apply uniform wear and increase pump availability.
- Over-cycling protection for assist pumps to control the number of starts and stops per hour.
Complete control of your application with up to 3 x F600 drives and maximum energy savings with these variable frequency drives running parallel.
- The Multi-leader drive configuration provides redundancy and removes the need for a PLC
- The “lead” drive is automatically cycled to apply uniform wear
- If the “lead” drive loses its transducer, it can access the transducer feedback from another F600 in the system over Ethernet
- Dynamic re-selection of “lead” pump if a pump is taken out of service or develops a fault
