White Knight Stroke Detection Fiber Optic Probe and Pump

Monitor & Control Pumps

White Knight’s stroke detection options enable pumps to be monitored electronically and allow for immediate notifications of changes in pumping conditions. They simplify replacement of other electronically monitored pumps, and may also be used to register pump speed or changes in pumping conditions.

Stroke detection options:

  • Fiber Optic Dual-Probe Dual-Detect
  • Fiber Optic Single-Probe Dual-Detect
  • Solid State Pressure Switch

Dual-Probe Dual-Detect

Fiber optic dual-probe dual-detect stroke detection uses fiber optic sensors on both side of a pump to signal when the pump reaches the end of stroke. This signal may be used to control an electronic shuttle valve, or it may be sent to a computer monitoring the system.

Single-Probe Dual-Detect

Fiber optic single-probe dual-detect is a cost saving version of stroke detection that utilizes a fiber optic probe on one side of the pump which senses two colors of an indicator. The signal is used to control or monitor the pump the same as the dual probe-dual detect option.

Solid-State Pressure Switch

Stroke detection is also available with a solid-state pressure switch that is signaled by a puff of air at the end of the pump stroke. The switch translates the puff of air into an electronic signal, which is sent to pump monitoring equipment.

Other features that allow for electronic monitoring of pumps include Leak Detection.
