Fort Wayne, IN – Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: FELE) has released an enhancement to its FE Connect app, which is designed to help professionals quickly set up and service Franklin Electric products equipped with wireless connectivity. The app supports the company’s most popular variable frequency drives (VFDs), including SubDrive Connect, SubDrive Connect Plus, SubMonitor Connect and select configurations of Cerus X-Drive.

This enhancement is the latest innovation for the app, which offers an array of startup, monitoring and troubleshooting solutions, including in-app guidance when setting up products, access to over-the-air firmware updates for effortless upgrades, and visibility into real-time product status. Engineers and water system professionals can also create and manage templates to easily save and load configurations across installations. The app helps preserve VFD integrity, allowing users to perform tasks and troubleshoot with minimal hands-on interaction with the drive.

“We designed this to be a next generation app for our customers,” said Chip Stenger, Senior Director, Electronics and Motors. “FE Connect helps our partners save time and enhances the installation and service of our products, streamlining the setup of our drives or protection devices. It’s also highly intuitive to use and guides you through every step. It’s one more way Franklin Electric is supporting professionals so they can get on to the next job faster.”

The app is available for download from the App Store and Google Play for use on tablets or phones.
