Get Effective Pump Control with SmartDrive+TSL

Putting the right controls on your next pump is as easy and effective as choosing SmartDrive+TSL (integrated Taco System Logic).

Whether you're working on a Delta-P system or a Delta-T LoadMatch® system, a SmartDrive+TSL drive, sold as an integrated package exclusively with Taco pumps, is the smart choice. It's easy to add, easy to set up and there's no need for additional controllers.

Perfect for secondary distribution pumps and constant speed primary pumps, our smart drives can set up the balancing for chillers and boilers, and even modulate secondary pumps and track system flow.

TSL Optimizes Pump Performance
Taco System Logic controls the variable speed drive to optimize pump performance. Setpoints and controls are programmed at our factory to allow our pumps to run at much lower pressures than most industry professionals would consider.

In addition, Taco Fault Tolerant Control maintains control even when the feedback signal wire is compromised. Pumping at much lower speeds will consume substantially less energy and require less maintenance, so along with peace of mind, you get superior efficiency, responsive comfort, and reduced life cycle costs all in one neat package.
