NEW FEATURES

www.italtecnica.com
Overview
A new version of Sirio and Sirio Entry has been
released on the market.
The new release includes hardware and
software improvements.
Additional functions are available and system
reliability is increased.
Service on the devices is simplified as well,
thanks to the introduction of a complete logging
of errors, supply timer, running timer, etc.

How to recognize the new version
You can recognize the new version 2.0 thanks to
the identification label applied on the cover and
on the external box.

Hardware improvements
Improved low voltage DC-DC converter
higher resistance to input voltage fluctuations and short interruptions
lower EMI noises

New inrush circuit directly commanded from CPU


perfect protection from inrush currents
protection of the power stage

Hardware improvements
New board-to-board connections
Boards are internally connected through ribbon flat cable
instead of pin strips
Increased reliability
No loose of signal
Easier replacement of the boards during service

www.italtecnica.com
Software improvements
All functioning variables are now available directly
on the screen, including:

actual pressure
actual frequency
incoming voltage
output current
internal ambient temperature
IGBT temperature

www.italtecnica.com
Software improvements
More protection of the pump and inverter thanks
to improved functions:

over pressure protection


automatic maximum frequency reduction with temperature
anti-cycling protection in case of leaks
anti-seizure protection automatically starting the pump in case of long
inactivity period
dry running delay timer can be adjusted separately

Software improvements
Increased performances thanks to new PWM
waveform generation:
output waveform is perfectly sinusoidal
+15% output voltage thanks to space vector technique, compared to
the past 3rd harmonic compensation
smoother functioning of the motor
maximum performance of the pump is equal to DOL connection

www.italtecnica.com
Software improvements
Universal software for different markets:
BAR or PSI pressure indication
50 or 60 Hz output frequency selection from the display
8 languages menu (IT,EN,FR,ES,DE,PT,GR,SK)

Flexibility of use:
automatic or manual functioning mode (frequency can be commanded
from the keypad)
flow sensor can be disabled for operation with unclean water, sand,
etc.
over voltage and under voltage limits can be adjusted from the menu
for operation in rural areas where power supply is not stabilized
selectable PWM switching frequency

www.italtecnica.com
Software improvements
Easy maintenance:
Complete errors log for quick debug
Power supply timer
Pump running timer
Easy access to calibration menu without removing plastic enclosures
Connection with PC software for quick inspection of all the parameters
(under development).
