ECO mode


The heat generated in the device can be reduced by lowering the

power of the input coils.

Pressing the „ECO Mode“ (F) key reduces the current power

setting. ECO mode is indicated by an “E” preceding the speed.

When the power is set to ECO mode, the speed is limited to

600 rpm.


The (G) key activates the “Reverse Rotation” function.

When the „Reverse Rotation“ function is switched on, a decimal

point (K) appears in the LCD display.

The running time (30, 60, 90 or 120sec) is set by pressing the (G)

key followed by the +/- keys.

After the preset running time, the drive is switched off and

restarted at minimum speed in the opposite direction after a

pause specific to the speed.

In this way the magnetic rod is captured and any liquid still

rotating is gradually slowed down. Then the drive accelerates to

the target speed.

Note: If the “Reverse Rotation” key (G) is pressed again, the drive

will keep rotating in the same direction.

When the device is started up again, the drive will rotate in the

direction last set.
