This video will describe how to wire and program the VGreen® Evo variable speed pool pump motors. Before installing, using, or servicing this product, carefully read and fully understand the instructions, including all warnings, cautions and safety notice statements in your VGreen Evo motor user manual, located at pool-motors.com. – And as always be sure to use personal protective equipment.
Jimmy Reed here with Regal, now that you have installed your new VGreen Evo motor, lets walk through wiring and programming. The open and accessible wiring compartment make terminal connections easy to access. If needed the wiring compartment may be rotated up to 180⁰ to allow easier access to terminal connections. To rotate the wiring compartment simply… Loosen the 4 screws from the top cover with a ¼” hex screwdriver. Unplug the single button user interface and set the top cover aside. Then remove the 3 screws that attach the terminal compartment to the motor main frame.
Rotate the terminal compartment to the desired position. Reinstall the 3 screws to secure the terminal compartment back to the motor main frame. Plug the single button user interface back into the terminal socket. Place the top cover back on the terminal compartment and tighten the 4 screws.
Now let’s move onto wiring.. Feed the existing electrical supply into the wiring compartment and secure mains connections. L1, L2 and Ground connections should be connected as follows. The VGreen Evo motors are equipped with Auto sensing Dual Voltage Capability for 115 and 230 volt applications. Simply secure the mains connections and apply power and the VGreen Evo motor will sense and adjust to the input voltage. Secure the terminal box cover and reapply power. Now let’s move on to programming! When power is applied to the VGreen Evo motor for the first time the single button user interface will illuminate green. The VGreen Evo motor will automatically enter operating mode and begin running the programmed default schedule. The single button user interface allows for programming flexibility with the push of a single button.
The motor offers 8 preselected operating schedules ranging from 1100 RPM to 3450 RPM, allowing users to best optimize their motor to minimize energy consumption and lower the overall cost of pool ownership, all while maintaining the proper pool environment. The VGreen Evo motor operating schedule can be set by entering the Schedule Set Mode. To enter Schedule Set Mode press and hold the button for 3 seconds, then release.
While in Schedule Set Mode the light will blink quickly. To set the motor schedule, select the desired schedule from the schedule table and press the button 1 to 8 times. For example, to set schedule 4 press the button 4 times and then hold the button for 3 seconds, then release. Once the schedule has been accepted, the motor will enter into Schedule Check Mode and the light will blink back the motor schedule that has been set. The motor will automatically return to Operating Mode 45 seconds after the new schedule has been set. Simply use the existing timer or filter pump relay to cycle power daily setting a defined start time. If no timer or filter pump relay is present the motor will cycle back to Step 1 every 24 hours. You are now ready to enjoy your new VGreen Evo motor. For more information on the VGreen Evo motor or to refer back to this video scan the QR code found on the top of your VGreen Evo motor.

Why Variable Speed
The new VGreen Evo motor is driven by advanced variable speed technology to power the most energy efficient and compliant pool pumps in the industry, helping our customers meet or exceed latest DOE regulations.
Single-speed pumps typically run at high RPM’s around the clock, over-circulating water and wasting precious energy and money. A variable speed pump motor allows users to circulate water at the minimum turnover rate for water quality at a lower RPM, thereby greatly reducing the energy needed to run the pump. The slower circulation rates of a variable speed pump equate to a noticeably quieter motor. Operating at lower speeds also lowers the temperature of the motor, extending the life of the motor. Upgrading to a variable speed motor will lower the cost of pool ownership through energy savings without replacing the pump. These motors run cooler, quieter and last longer. Owning a pool with a variable speed motor is more affordable and better for the environment.
Available in both square flange and C-Face configurations, the highly versatile VGreen Evo motor can
be utilized in pool pump applications ranging from 1.30 to 2.25 total horsepower. Installation on most
pumps, regardless of manufacturer, is as simple as replacing a standard single-speed or two-speed motor. There is no additional wiring or plumbing required, thanks to the VGreen Evo motor’s integrated user interface.
