Aquavar IPC Variable Speed Controller is optimized for pumps in submersible and ground water applications. It adds capabilities including multi-pump configuration and remote monitoring.


The Aquavar Controller Genie quickly and easily guides you through setup in as little as 15 minutes. Asking for only the required parameters, the Genie will automatically configure your set up to the optimal settings for the specific application – eliminating the guesswork in set up.  The Aquavar controller can be further customized through the Genie for those applications with pump protections, I/O options, and multi-pump operation to get your pump system working just the way you need.


There are significant opportunities to reduce a pumping system’s energy consumption such as through smart hydraulic system design, retrofitting for variable speed performance and operating practices. To build and operate an efficient water system, you need both the right products and experts who know the application. Aquavar IPC has been designed by Xylem’s engineers with these things in mind and with the help of the Aquavar variable speed controller, you can optimize your pump operations and reduce your energy costs by as much as 70%.
