FLUIDS & LIQUIDS HANDLING Pump control on the GO In order to get complete control over pump performance, Grundfos Pumps developed the innovative Grundfos GO App that offers intuitive, handheld pump control. Grundfos GO is designed to save time and effort for the user. The App can be downloaded to any compatible device i.e. with an iOS or Android operating system. Today, the Grundfos GO CAPS and GO Remote have now merged into one App. So, if you just want to research pump selections this can be done by downloading the free Grundfos GO App as this offers the most comprehensive platform for pump selection including sizing, replacement and a range of documentation. If you want to use the Grundfos GO to communicate via radio and infrared technology with e-pumps, in order to get started you will need to order the mobile interface attachment either for your iPod Touch or for your Apple or Android smartphone device and download the free Grundfos GO App from the App Store or Google Play. Then reap the benefits of intuitive, handheld assistance and access to Grundfos online tools, saving valuable time on reporting and data collection. These innovations mean the industry’s most advanced mobile solution has taken pump control and selection - on the move - to a whole new level.

With a belt-mounted control unit for handsfree operation, the lightweight Bmic is comfortable, easy to use and provides high quality sound reproduction. To avoid unnecessary excavation and ‘dry holes’ which do not expose the leak on an underground pipe, the Bmic helps leak technicians precisely pinpoint the leak location from the surface. Available as standard with the proven “elephant’s foot” windproof microphone or in the Bmic Lite package with a lightweight hand probe and “tripod foot”, it offers an economical way to improve the leak pinpointing and repair process for all levels of requirement. The “elephant’s foot” microphone, planted on the ground at surface level, provides superior sound quality by reducing background noise, allowing the user to accurately identify where the leak is and exactly where any digging should take place. The hand probe option is also available to use with attachable tripod, or for making direct contact on accessible pipes and fittings - enabling the operator to carry out traditional acoustic surveys. A simple push of the button on the belt-mounted control unit activates broad-band amplification technology to make the sound clearer and pinpointing even easier, and the windproof housing on the microphone coupled with the included studio quality headphones ensures the best possible audio quality.
