I'm about to replace my single speed pump with a VS and I'm looking at the 3HP IntelliFlo pumps. Can the VSF pump operate in RPM mode instead of flow mode? I found the VSF to be cheaper than the VS in most places.

Pentair IntelliFlo VS Variable Speed Pool Pump - 011028 for $1300
Pentair IntelliFlo VSF Variable Speed Pool Pump - 011056 for $1140

I've read threads from past years where it seemed that the VSF was more expensive and the advice was to stick with the VS. Now it seems the VSF is cheaper, I have no desire to operate in flow mode, so can it operate in RPM mode only? I have no automation currently but planning on that next.
