I use that term loosely but more accurately a motor
speed controller or pulse switching module. This allows your system to be run in a "HIGH" or "LOW" mode. The soft starting capabilities allow you to start a larger watermaker
on a smaller power load without overloading circuits or a generator
. Coupled with a mag drive feed pump these motors are practically bullet proof and do not rely on the line protection device to trip before over amping the motor
. In the rare case the feed pump locks up the motor and system are protected. The Catalina
has had a lot of improvementrs made over the years and it's a bit tough for me to know exactly what you have. You are welcome to take a pic inside the feed pump module and send it to me, that would help a lot in suggesting anything.
