Pump design eliminates the need for a separate float switch to activate this RULE bilge pump. When power is supplied the start/stop mode for this unit is completely automatic. Pump checks for water every 2-1/2 min. by turning ON for a second and measuring the load against the impeller. If water is present the pump turns ON and remains in operation until the water is removed. Thereafter the pump maintains its 2-1/2 min. check cycle.
Automatic Operation: Pump turns on and checks for water approximately every 2-1/2 minutes. If resistance (water) is found, it will run for as long as water is present. When all the water is pumped out, the pump shuts off and returns to its 2-1/2 minute test cycle.Amp Draw During Automatic Check: 0.5 Amps in a 24 hour period Manual Operation: The pump can be started at any time by disconnecting it from the power source, waiting for 5 seconds and reconnecting to the power source Amp Draw @ 12.0 Volts: 1.9Amp Draw @ 13.6 Volts: 2.5 Fuse Size: 2.5 amps Discharge Opening: 3/4" Discharge Finish: Barbed Housing Material: ABSStrainer Material: ABS Impeller Material: Nylon Shaft Material: Stainless Seal Material: Nitril/Teflon Temperature Limit: 200 FFluid Capabilities: Bilge Water Typical Life: 1500 hours Wire Length: 29" Wire Gauge: 16 gauge Height: 3-1/2" Width: 2-3/8"Depth: 2-3/8" Weight: 9 oz Certifications: NMMA Type Accepted Equipment # 704213, IMCI Certified - ISO 8849, CE Certified, UPC Code 0-42237-08313-5
