whoa..pretty nice. Looks like direct competition of the vectra S1. One thing I don't see on it (not that the S1 has it either) is their usual shaft inlet pipe for recirculation to help keep deposits of the rotator shaft..

You linked the "Eco", but there is a mini too.

How powerful is this Eco? I don't know how to read their numbers... Says 4m^3?

EDIT: Nvm, I found it in their images... it's a little over 1,000gph with no head loss. They have a chart that shows flow rates at different head heights.

There is actually three charts depending on wattage level. 10w setting would work well for me... Seems a cool little pump.

The AKB (Anti Lime Bypass) is what you are referring to and the smaller RD3's don't use them and really don't need them because of the rotational speeds of the smaller pumps don't generate the heat from the water friction in the magnet cavity to cause excessive calcium buildup.

I know the question is going to come up so I will answer it in advance. I or we on the US side don't know when we will see these in the US. Hopefully later this year. We are waiting on news for the 110v version and once we have that news and an ETA, we will make an announcement.
