**Franklin Electric has upgraded the S-Series Pumps to incorporate a PSC (Permanent Split Capacitor) motor to replace the previous induction motor. By making this change, they eliminated the oil-filled motor housing which was required to cool and lubricate the previous motor. Also, they completely tooled all components while maintaining the original pump size and pump performancecharacteristics.
