Hello there again fellow ePoolSupply supporters today I wanted to talk to you about how to install the I/O board on the IntelliFlo3 VSF. I also want to talk to you guys a little bit about the IntelliFlo3 VSF and also talk about what an I/O board is.
Pentair IntelliFlo3 VSF
Pentair IntelliFlo VSF is the first pump to combine true set it and forget it flow technology paired with the smart connectivity of Pentair's app. This pump sets a new bar for performance with built-in sensorless flow control for effortless optimum flow and aids in keeping the pool crystal clear and inviting, no matter what it requires. Pentair's IntelliFlo3 VSF (011075 and 011076) can save you up to 90% on energy savings with a slower speed and regulated flow. They have an all-new motor, drive, and hydraulics that exceed all U.S Department of Energy (DOE) requirements. This pump is for local pickup only.
What Is An I/O Board?
I/O Boards In Simple Pool Terms
This will allow you to turn on/off relays such as a pool light or booster pump straight from this pump. By eliminating the need for an expensive automation system, this simplistic design is great for basic pools with little function.
In Complicated Pool Terms
This Intelliflo3 VSF pump has an I/O board which is an interface board that adds the ability to input and output digital signals in parallel to a computer. This will make it possible to monitor the statuses of measuring devices as well as the relays and operation switches of various types of control circuits.
How to install the I/O board
On the top of the pump, there are two screws at the end, not the four screws on the very top, the two screws are lowered down where the warning sticker is. You will completely remove the screws. It is recommended to use a regular hand screwdriver and not a power drill so you don't crack the pump. After removing the screws, you should be able to lift the flap and it will slide off. Now you should be able to see all your hookups.
Before installing the board, make sure you have dry hands and you have a GFI breaker so you do not fry it. On the actual plastic piece, there is a screw hole that is meant for the idle board. There will be a screw already on the board. On the back end, there will be a horizontal plug that will be pushed into the slot on the pump. The I/O board should fit perfectly on the pump. Now you will want to screw in the board to the pump. Now you can hook up any other devices you need to. The final step is to put the flap back on that you originally took off. It should just easily be put back on and you will screw it back in.
