Good VFD for PID Liquid Leveling

1322 4
Decided to go the PID route with a water tank to keep the level correct. Would this be a good unit to easily set up PID with a Liquid Level Sensor? http://www.ebay.com/itm/ABB-ACH4016...933?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c38629c55 Thanks for all the help guys (have another thread open, but figured a thread about easy PID VFD's would be good as I have looked for countless hours). Thanks, A.j.

I would be looking at an ACS550. I set up my first ABB with a PID loop to maintain pressure, and it went surprisingly smooth with the pump setup assistant on the drive.

That drive you have posted, is most likely obsolete.

I really like the ABB drives. They seem to have been indestructable for the last 25 years. I have also really had good luck with the Scnieder Electric Altivar Series of drives. Their MMI and straightforward human like language makes it alot easier on the techs setting them up.

humm a 15 hp vfd on a 2hp motor is overkill. i only use delta or DuraPulse (same as delta but different software, more user friendly sold by automationdirect)
ive had a lot of abb acs550 vfd broke if motor had a little leak to ground, there are not thougher than other vfd. and way overpriced.
