The DAB Active Driver Plus M/M 1.1 is a control system that ensures your pump switches on and off automatically depending on water requirement. When an outlet point is opened (e.g. a tap), the system ensures that the pump switches on automatically to provide you with water immediately, then off when the outlet point is closed again.

  • Inlet size: 1 ¼"  male thread
  • Outlet size: 1 ½" female thread

Why does the DAB Active Driver Plus cost more than a DAB Control-D (Presscontrol), or the Electronic Control System?
The difference in price is due to the fact that the system has a different mechanism.  Whereas the DAB Control-D and the Electronic Control System ensure that the pump switches on and off automatically depending on water requirement, the DAB Active Driver Plus takes things a step further. The system also controls the pump's RPM, which is called a speed controller.

Why would I opt for a speed controller like the DAB Active Driver Plus?

  • High energy efficiency: The DAB Active Driver Plus ensures that the pump runs only at the RPM required to pump the right amount of water, under the right pressure, from A to B. A lower rotational speed means lower wattage,
  • Longer life span of the pump: The DAB Active Driver Plus ensures that the pump gradually speeds up and slows down. This prevents damage by water hammer in the water pipes when the pump switches on and off, which is better for it. In addition, the pump only runs the required RPM, which is beneficial for the motor.
  • Extremely suitable for varying water supply: If you want to use the DAB Active Driver Plus to increase the indoor water pressure or to control different water-consuming groups (e.g. an irrigation system), you will benefit from varying amounts of water supplied. A conventional pump will run at full capacity, even though that capacity is not actually needed. If the pump is unable to discharge its water, it will continue running in its own water, which may cause it to overheat. The DAB Active Driver Plus is fully customisable, allowing you to set the capacity and pressure for each individual group.
  • Dry-running protection: The DAB Active Driver Plus ensures that the pump switches off automatically when the water supply has stopped.  When the pump continues to run in the absence of a water supply, this is referred to as dry running.  If this happens, the pump's inner temperature may increase to over 100°C, with all the potential problems this entails. The DAB Active Driver Plus protects your pump against this, it also ensures that the pump is switched on after several minutes, to check whether there is water again. If there is not, the dry-running protection will be reactivated.

Connecting the DAB Active Driver to a pump

The DAB Active Driver should at all times be installed 'on dry land', which means not in but outside the water. However, it should be placed between the pipes as water runs through the DAB Active Driver.

The electronic connection of the DAB Active Driver should be done in the following sequence:

  • Upper connection: From the pump to the DAB Active Driver
  • Lower connection: From the DAB Active Driver to the socket

Connecting to a DAB S4 KIT Borehole Pump (with Control Box):

  • Connect the four pump wires in the Control Box
  • Upper connection: cut the plug from the Control Box output cable and connect the wires to the lower connection of the DAB Active Driver
  • Lower connection: From the DAB Active Driver to the socket
