Franklin Electric's Innovative Fhoton(TM) SolarPAK System Provides Modular, Cost-Effective Solar Water Pumping

FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Jul 6, 2016) - Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: FELE) announces the official launch of the new Fhoton™ SolarPAK System, which utilizes Franklin's proven solar technology with the new Fhoton solar controller. The Fhoton SolarPAK System features a Franklin Electric submersible pump and motor, and the Fhoton solar controller in one package. When used with solar panels to power the pump and motor, the system draws groundwater to the surface for a variety of uses. The system is an ideal choice for remote or "off grid" areas where delivering water is impractical due to the availability of electricity or for homeowners that simply want to conserve energy. The catalyst behind this new system, the Fhoton solar controller, features a compact modular design, providing installation flexibility for the contractor. For added durability, it touts a robust IP66, NEMA 4 enclosure that protects against wildlife, insects, dust, and weather. The controller includes diagnostic features and built-in protection from potential harmful conditions, such as: surge, underload (dry run), overvoltage, locked pump, open and short circuit, overheated controller, and reverse polarity. The Franklin Electric Fhoton SolarPAK System is cULus and UL approved and available in a variety of flow rates from 2.5 to 90 gpm (9.5 to 270 lpm) and power ratings of 0.75 and 1.5 hp (0.55 or 1.1 kW). Fhoton's motor control algorithm and hardware design enable the end user to get a higher solar- or photon-to-water energy conversion ratio, which means more water with less sunlight needed. It can drive a broad range of submersible and surface motor types and can be used in a new solar array or retrofit to an existing array in many cases, providing added application flexibility. The Fhoton SolarPAK System supports a variety of pumping applications, including: livestock watering, tank/cistern filling, wildlife refuge and game farms, rural water supply for villages and homesteads, irrigation systems, fountains, vineyards, renewable energy projects, effluent pumping, rain harvesting, and more. Most locations globally have ample sunlight to run a solar pumping system, and given the fact that solar panels are as cost effective as ever, there is immediate value for contractors to install these highly efficient systems. The technology is still new to many, so the entire solar package of panels, pump, motor, and controller/drive are backed by Franklin's team of Field Service Engineers to make the installation process simple. In addition, contractors can become a Franklin Certified Solar Contractor, which helps them identify market trends, selling tips, and become a solar pumping expert. For solar installers looking to partner with a drilling or pump installation expert, Franklin Electric will connect them with its expansive network of water systems professionals.

Little Giant EC-1-DV and EC-1K-DV Condensate Removal Pump Provides Multi-Voltage Operation in One Unit

FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2016) - Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: FELE) offers the Little Giant® EC-1-DV Series Mini Condensate Removal Pump that provides multi-voltage operation from one unit. This model is designed to operate on any common residential and commercial voltages of 115V, 208V and 230V single phase. The EC-1-DV and EC-1K-DV (condensate pumping kit) accomplish this multi-voltage operation by sensing the supply voltage and providing only the right amount of power to drive the pump to produce precise and consistent pumping performance. The pump offers improved noise reduction, reliable solid-state switching technology, and easy installation on the right or left side of mini-split, wall-mount ductless air conditioners. In addition to these features, it includes all the innovative features of the existing EC-1 Series. EC-1 key features and benefits include:

Vibration Dampening Design - An elastomeric cushion supports the motor, which isolates inherent motor vibrations and reduces noise transmission. Combined with external isolation mounts, this further reduces noise transmission to surrounding surfaces.
Quick and Easy Installation - Mounting brackets allow the motor/controller and reservoir to be quickly positioned during initial install and later during servicing.
Advanced Float Design - Precision magnets activate Hall Effect sensors within the float to provide pinpoint accuracy for automatic on/off pump operation and overflow detection.
Immediate Visual Inspection - A clear reservoir tank provides immediate inspection of the water level, float and filter for quick and accurate servicing.

Franklin Electric Announces the 75th Anniversary of Its Little Giant(R) Brand

FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) - 2016 marks the 75th Anniversary for Little Giant®, a leading worldwide brand of plumbing, HVAC, dewatering, utility and a variety of other pumps. Little Giant, a Franklin Electric (NASDAQ: FELE) company, originated in 1941 when a plumber named R.M. "Doc" Wolfe found a solution to the quality challenges he faced with evaporative cooling pumps. The Little Giant Vaporizer was born and was considered the first electric motor-driven submersible pump of its kind on the market. Shortly thereafter, the Little Giant Vaporizer Company was created in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where 15 employees manufactured submersible vaporizers for evaporative coolers. "Little Giant products and people have been an important addition to the Franklin family," said DeLancey Davis, Franklin Electric Vice President and President of North America Water Systems. "Little Giant has provided a terrific base business in the wastewater, HVAC and outdoor living channels, and holds strong brand recognition with key areas of distribution in each of these markets. Much of this can be attributed to consistent product introductions, innovations, and a loyal customer base that has continued to make Little Giant their brand of choice for 75 years. The Little Giant brand was built on dedication to quality and availability and is a testament to our loyal employees who put their craftsmanship into every Little Giant product to support our customers' craft. We are truly grateful to our ideal collection of employees, customers, and business partners who have teamed together for 75 years to make Little Giant the leader it is today." After World War II, Little Giant purchased an aluminum die-casting machine and started taking on die-casting contractor work in the 1940s to further increase sales and personnel expertise. By 1950, this expertise had grown so much that the company was able to develop and manufacture an upgraded Little Giant Vaporizer Pump that could be used anywhere water recirculation was a problem. This basic, self-contained electric motor-driven submersible pump was a small low-pressure, high-volume pump that was used specifically for the recirculation of water for evaporative coolers, minnow tanks, home garden pools and fountains, light coolant oils for machine tools, laboratory uses and many other water transfer applications. In 1954, the development of the Little Giant C2 and C3 pumps signaled the company's true entrance into the condensate pump business. In 1960, the company reorganized and changed its name to Little Giant Corporation, expanding its focus to battery chargers and steam cleaning machines that were later sold so the company could focus completely on water pumping. Over the next 20 years, the company continued to build its name around innovation with: condensate removal pumps (1958), sump pumps (1963), magnetic drive pumps (1968), sump/sewage/effluent pumps (1980), Eliminator Series 8E, 9S, 10S pumps (1985), aquarium pumps (1990), WRS-5 and WRS-6 sewage basins (1990), pool cover pumps (1996), decorative outdoor living products for the landscape industry (1997), the VCMA condensate pump (1999), grinder pumps (2000), Pit Plus® sewage basins (2003), and outdoor living LED lights (2004). Little Giant was purchased by Franklin Electric, a leading global manufacturer of pumps, motors, drives and controls for residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial and municipal applications, in 2006. With the combined Franklin engineering and manufacturing teams, the Little Giant brand has continued its focus on providing innovative products that solve contractor challenges in the pumping industry. Little Giant's wastewater product expertise includes sump, sewage, effluent, dewatering, condensate, magnetic drive, and utility pumps, as well as low pressure sewer systems. The Little Giant Outdoor Living product line includes a variety of pumps and accessories for decorative water, hydroponics, aquarium, pool, and marine applications.
