Evolution Aqua Matsuko Switchbox
Evolution Aqua have teamed up with Matsuko to
develop a range of quality, high performance switchboxes
that manage all the electrical needs required in the garden
and pond environment.
Evolution Aqua Matsuko Switchboxes are ideal for controlling
all types of water garden appliance. They give owners an
extra level of freedom and protection by enabling up to 5
devices, such as pumps, filters, skimmers, fountains and
lights to all be programmed and controlled by one single
3 Switchbox Models
There are 3 types of switchbox available:
- 5 Way Switchbox - Offering up to 5 lines
of power up to 1500 W per line. Each device that is
connected can be manually powered on or off at the touch of
- SwitchMaster - 5 Way Programmable
Switchbox - Offers 5 lines of power each delivering 1500
W per line. Every device that gets connected can be
individually programmed to power on or off at your
- SwitchMasterPro - 5 Way Programmable
Switchbox with PumpGuard™ - This high end model offers
all the flexibility and security you need from a 5 way
programmable switchbox, with the added benefit of
PumpGuard™. If a pump is connected to this switchbox,
PumpGuard™ will monitor its performance, check on its
parameters and perform checks to help prevent any damage
to the pump. This model will also tell the power
consumption of every device connected.
All models are weatherproof for outdoor
use at least to IP56, IP66 when installed in accordance with
What is PumpGuardTM?
PumpGuard™ is a patent-pending, smart technology that helps
to avoid possible disasters occurring when your pump blocks
Line 1 of every Matsuko switchbox with PumpGuard™ is set to
automatically “learn” how the first pump that is connected
to it behaves in normal use.
Once the learning process is over (approximately after the
first 20 min of running) PumpGuard™ goes into monitoring
mode. It’s just looking out for your pump showing signs of
overloading or cutting out, all day every day.
PumpGuard™ also knows how long you’ve programmed your pump
to run every day.
So, if the pump should start to overload, or cut out,
PumpGuard™ works on a series of recovery - “keep it going” -
plans. PumpGuard™’s program tries to keep the pump running
but minimising the overload, or avoiding any cutting out,
while still running as far as possible for the full
programmed time during the day!
As soon as an overload situation has occurred PumpGuard™
sounds a warning alarm (the signal for a warning alarm is a
steady beeping sound plus a red LED on line No.1) the
display shows “PumpGuard™ active”.
A pump that constantly keeps restarting can easily burn
itself out. PumpGuard™ detects this situation and will, if
the cutting out cannot be stopped by running on a lower
intensity program, disconnects the power. PumpGuard™ saves
your pump from damaging itself. In this situation PumpGuard™
sounds a stop alarm (the signal for a stop alarm is a faster
beeping sound plus a red LED on Line No. 1) and the display
shows “Pump fail”.
When you want to connect a new pump to your switchbox, you
just reset PumpGuard™ on the control panel and the learning
process will start again. PumpGuard™ is integrated into the
top of the range 5 Way Programmable switchbox.
