The DrivE-Tech COMPACT is designed and delveloped to maintain existing features of the Drive-Tech MINI while extending the operation range up to 22 kW. It is dedicated to improving submersible or surface pumping systems in many different applications like municipal water supply, irrigation, commercial pressure boosting, HVAC and many more. The combination of high feature set, an extended operation range and compact while robust enclosure design, makes it ideal for nearly any stand-alone decentralized pumping application.
