Building services pump system provider Wilo-Stratos has unveiled one of the first smart glanded pumps on the market, the Wilo-Stratos GIGA2.0. A reliable supply is essential in building services, particularly large buildings, where high-volume flows often need to be conveyed with high delivery heads to provide the required heating and cooling capacity. The Wilo-Stratos GIGA2.0 smart glanded pump features several interfaces that enable multi-pump control, can be easily integrated into building automation systems, and has advanced data acquisition capabilities as well as state-of-the-art options for mobile access via Wilo-Smart Connect.

Wilo-Smart Connect enables the pump to be configured and operated via Bluetooth using mobile devices. It also allows the pump to communicate through a range of established bus protocols, including an Ethernet interface for BACnet IP and Modbus TCP.

This system enables smart Wilo products to be monitored and operated remotely via the Wilo app — the “Wilo Assistant.” Wilo-Smart Connect provides access to the pump’s operating data in real time and can be read, monitored and even controlled when necessary.

Wilo-Smart Connect systems provide the ability to network pumping systems, enable transparent monitoring and convenient remote control, result in fewer on-site visits, and involve easy and convenient commissioning and maintenance activities.

This new range of smart glanded pumps consists of an in-line version, the Wilo-Stratos GIGA2.0-I, and a twin-head pump version, Wilo-Stratos GIGA2.0-D. The Wilo-Stratos GIGA2.0-I features Green Button Technology for easy and precise commissioning, and a large display which enables simple, intuitive operation.

Thanks to the intelligent interaction of IE5 EC motor technology with proven pump hydraulics (MEI ≥0.7) as well as innovative control functions, the new Wilo GIGA2.0 delivers optimum energy efficiency and enhanced reliability of the overall system.
