The HC6000-PRO Sump Pump Switch offers affordable, professional grade, performance monitoring and control to any sump pump installation. Designed with our tried-and-true pump-switching technology that has been tested to more than 1 million cycles, the HC6000-PRO takes reliability to a whole new level.
Similar to how a “check engine” or malfunction indicator light works in your car, the HC6000-PRO acts as an alert system for various problems that can occur in your sump pump setup. This high-tech switch offers continuous monitoring of more than 12 key operation elements in addition to built-in alarms that alert you when a problem occurs.
The easy-to-read LCD screen displays real-time information that provides you with a complete picture of how your sump pump system is performing. Tracking these key operation parameters can help you to proactively identify and prevent problems with your sump pump system.
This smart float-switch is easy to install and automatically adjusts to the size of the sump pit and rate of incoming water. All alarms can be temporarily muted, silenced for 24hrs, and disabled individually. Unlike other dual-float switches that run each cycle for a fixed amount of time, the HC6000-PRO’s dual-sensor design makes it highly adjustable, giving the user complete control of where the pump turns on/turns off with up to 12 feet of range.
Tracked Operation Elements:
Pump Motor Current:
Real-time pump motor current while the pump is running
Maximum motor current measured during any cycle
Moving average of pump run current
Pump Cycle Time:
How long the pump has been running during a current cycle
Maximum time it took to empty the pit for any cycle
Minimum time it took to empty the pit for any cycle
Water Sensor Status:
Sensor health—The sensor’s ability to detect the presence or absence of water
Viability of electrical grounding of water in the pit
Pumping Effectiveness and Readiness:
Is the water level dropping while the pump is running?
Is the pump drawing current when the run cycle is initiated?
Does the system pass weekly self-test cycles?
The HC6000-PRO does not sound an alarm for everything it monitors, but only sounds an alarm for events that are critical and require immediate attention. Additionally, if a specific alarm isn’t needed in your application, you can disable that alarm individually to eliminate unwanted alarms.
For example, your setup might use a relatively small pump to empty a large sump pit, so it takes a while for the level to drop once the pump starts running. In this situation, you may want to disable the High Water alarm because it might be triggered every run cycle, making it more annoying than it is helpful.
The HC6000-PRO has the following alarms:
Pump Motor Amps Not Detected
Pump Motor Amps Not Detected During Auto-Test
Weak or Missing Ground
Water Sensor Status (Dirty, Failed, Etc.)
