    Intellitouch Load Center

    I am in the process of updating my pool equipment pad. I've been looking at the Pentair products and want to install the Intellitouch automation system and the Intellichlor SWCG. I've seen some notes about a new load center that includes the Intellichlor power supply (part number 521213) that was supposed to be out in early / mid April. I search for this part nmuber but can't find anyone selling it. When I search for it on the Pentair web site, it does not locate anything. Can you Pentair experts help me out? Is there such an animla? Is it going to be stocked and sold soon? Thanks in advance.

    521213 is listed for spring 2011, though no one seems to have them yet. Some of the other spring 2011 products have come out very recently.

    Bummer..I hope they release it soon. I'm sure I'll be back with questions as I figure out the rest of the equipment pad upgrade.
    Thanks for all your quick replies...this board rocks!

    Re: Intellitouch Load Center

    Arrrgh! I am buying my equipment and ran into this too! Does the older product load center not include the power transformer for the ic? Amy updates in the last 10 days? It will be a cpl months before I HAVE to have it but I wanted to get my equipment on the way and start installing the electrical side.

    The new one is still not shipping that I can see.

    The old one does not come with the IntelliChlor power supply. The new one comes either way, with or without the power supply. The new one is also a little larger, 150 amps instead of 125 amps and max of 10 breakers instead of 8.

    Re: Intellitouch Load Center

    I've also been thinking about buying this new model with the integrated Intellichlor transformer, however I think I may go with the seperate transformer. I assume the transformer puts out a fair amount of heat, like all transformers, and this heat in turn will damage the IntelliTouch electronics over time, as heat damages electronics over time. So my question is, do others agree with my conclusion or has Pentair done something to get this heat out of the cabinet, such as an exhaust fan?

    Re: Intellitouch Load Center

    A few days ago, I spoke with the owner of a local pool company about this problem. There are many products on the Pentair site that are not yet available by online pool stores. He told me that as a large Pentair pool dealer, he can get ANY part listed on Pentairs site.

    You might check with a local dealer to see if they can do the same. Although, that option may cost extr*****$

    We just had our equipment put in and ours has the SWG transformer in it. The installer is a little confused on how to hook it up.

    The wiring diagram should be right on the inside door.

    If you order the 521 load center then you will still get a 520. Do not let the pool stores fool you. Even if they are best friends with there rep.

    Two or three people have reported getting the new one. Some stores may well still be shipping the old one, but there are some new units out there.
