IntelliTouch® Pool Control System

 

Pentair IntelliTouch® pool/spa control system

IntelliTouch® pool/spa control system takes the work and worry out of scheduling and operating pool and spa heating, filtration and cleaning cycles. It also gives you one-touch control over additional heaters, valves, pool lights, landscape lights, water features and more. At the same time, IntelliTouch makes sure all your equipment operates at peak efficiency for minimum energy usage and cost. It even helps protect your equipment investment. IntelliTouch senses conditions that could hamper operation and alerts you to these situations or takes automatic corrective action.

 

A basic IntelliTouch® control system involves just three key elements:

IntelliTouch® control system power centerStep #1 Power Center


Power Center or Load Center is required for all installations and contains all the electrical circuitry, two varieties available:
521213
Load Center smaller foot print (17” W x 17” H) Load center for IntelliTouch and MobileTouch control systems includes built-in sub panel (125 AMPS) capable of holding up to 1" breakers and includes five 25 Amps 3 HP relays 120/240 volt transformer.
521214
Power Center Indoor Control Panel – Power center for IntelliTouch system offers a smaller footprint (17” W x 17” H) than the Load Center. The Power Center does not include breakers. Choose this power center only if you have existing breakers and sub panels for your equipment.
