Product Description

From the innovative leader in leisure water pump motors, Century® now offers wireless capability for its VGreen® variable speed pump motors with the release of VLink™, a retrofit wireless user interface control.

The VLink wireless motor interface gives the pool operator the ultimate ability to set, adjust, and monitor a pump motor schedule from virtually anywhere in the world with the use of a smart mobile device. In addition, the programming flexibility allows the user to monitor, manage and calculate energy consumption and savings, and easily and conveniently set custom overrides for parties and cleaning. Energy conscious pool owners now have the ability to wirelessly monitor and manage their VGreen pump motor anytime, anywhere!

One of the many advantages for the dealer/installer is that VLink is a simple to install, low-cost method of incorporating wireless controllability to any basic pool pad that has a VGreen motor. Installation is a breeze because no high voltage connections are necessary. A simple, low voltage connection between the motor and wireless adapter are all that are needed to power the unit and enable communication. Once the hardware is installed, the simple to use App (available in Android or iOS) is downloaded and onscreen instructions guide the owner or installer through connecting the wireless adapter to the home’s wireless network.

For the end user, VLink enables many desired features of the VGreen 270 variable speed motor that are integrated into the VGreen 165 but not configurable by the end user. With the use of the VLink wireless motor interface, end users can set and control prime speed and duration as well as freeze protection settings. VLink also enhances the user experience on the VGreen 165 and 270 by allowing up to six custom override settings to be programed. VLink also allows all settings to be stored in the “Cloud” so they will never get lost regardless of power outages or brownouts.

The VLink wireless motor interface is 100% backwards compatible with previously installed VGreen 165 or 270 variable speed motors, and is a perfect addition to new installations, as well. The VLink wireless motor interface package includes a wireless adapter and mounting plate, two communication connectors, one 18’ communication cable, a watertight communication cable fitting, and two mounting screws and wall anchors.

I would like to retain the ability to use the manual control if needed. Has anyone ever tried a two way installation using an RJ11 switch? The installation wiring for remote and manual units to the motor look the same so a switch fed by the lead from the motor should work. Obviously both controllers wouldn’t work at the same time buts that’s fine. Am I missing something? Thx M

Hi Mdricks, We reached out to Century on your question and here is what they had to say... "Short answer:  It should work fine. I don’t believe we did any specific testing with any switches between a VLink and a normal user interface, but as long as it’s wired properly I don’t see any major issues with what the customer is suggesting.  There may be a significant delay in control when switching between the interfaces, but as long as that’s fine with the user it shouldn’t be an issue. The VLink uses the cloud to store a user’s pump schedule, so disconnecting it from power won’t “lose” the settings.  I believe the same is true for the regular user interface as long as it has a cell battery that is working."

    Here is an additional comment from Century on this topic. "Just wanted to add one additional note... When working with the VGreen165 ALWAYS hit stop before reverting back to VLink! If you program a schedule on the MOTOR user interface and press start you must press STOP before sending power back to VLink.  If not the schedule that was programmed on the motor user interface will continue to run in the background.  If this happens the user may observe their pump motor running when their VLink schedules says it should be off. Overall, I don’t see any real benefit to “toggling” between motor UI and VLink.  VLink is equipped with a service mode that allows the user to turn the motor on and off and run various override speeds in the event the user is at the equipment without their mobile device.  This would also allow their service company to do the same to service or clean the pool."

I have a 2 Green motor it is the B2984T Can I replace the current electronic controller with this VLink or is there another option (my controller is on and running but not responding to button pushes)?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/17/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Albert. The 2-Green motors are not compatible with the VLink. You will need to replace the motor since the controller is not responding.

Can you install the VLink unit on a new pump before you install it?
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/1/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

We do not. We offer the V-Link with two of our PureLine Prime Variable Speed Pumps the PL2616 or the PL2615.

I can't seem to be able to find the VLInk App for android. They could not be so short sighted as to only operate with Apple products could they?

A  Answered on 5/1/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Kevin G.

Hello, the app is available in the Google Play Store as well, just search for "Century Vlink".

Will this control more than one Vgreen motor at a time? I have two of them installed in our Community pool and I would like to control them both with just one controller.

A  Answered on 4/4/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Kevin G.

Hello, you need one per motor that you wish to control.

We have a Vgreen-165 Century Pool Pump and the fault code is flashing and will not operate. What are the options to troubleshoot?- do we need a new key pad and if so- would a wireless interface over ride a bad board?
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/15/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Phillipi. When the fault light is blinking, the issue is with the User Interface. Installing the VLink will tell you the exact fault code but will not circumvent the User Interface.

Will this work on other motor brands? If so do you have a compatibility list?

Hi, Cale. The Century Motor VLink - VL100 is only compatible with the Century V-Green Motors

Is the unit water resistant? Will be mounted in a wall, occasional/accidental splashing while cleaning the filter area.
 Reply

A  Answered on 12/5/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Kevin G.

No, this device is not water resistant. Because of this, I would recommend installing this unit in a dry space.

Can I install this inside my house?
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/27/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Brian M. You can, however, the cable is only 18ft long so that's the installation range from the pump.

Can this also operate an accessory such as a light tonturnit okn and off remotely?
 Reply

A  Answered on 10/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Tampa. No, this controller will not control any accessory, only the Century V-Green Motors

I had an issue with a vs pump we bought on Clist about a month after installed. I had a feeling it was tenant or pool service guys messing with the control pad. Spoke with good folks at INYO and we discussed a solution. The VLink was installed by my dad and the wife worked the magic of setting it up on the computer. I was out of town at the time, downloaded the app and it was up and running within an hour. It's great to know and easy to schedule or just override pump to boost flow.
