Product description

MICO, the intelligent power distribution system from Murrelektronik, monitors current, indicates current rating and detects overloading. It simplifies trouble shooting and re-duces machine downtime. Power supply systems have to combine two functions: The have to provide high inrush currents for the startup of an installation, while at the same time they have to ensure a reliable shutdown in case of short circuits or over-loads. When using only circuit breakers it is difficult to meet these two requirements in accordance with the applicable standards. Slow blow fuse characteristics can cope with high capacitive loads, however, they do not reliably react in case of short circuits. In case of a failure the service technician cannot see which path shows the fault that caused the shut down. Fast releasing circuit breakers reliably react in case of a short circuit, but with high capacitive loads they react too fast.
MICO, Murrelektronik's intelligent power supply module, is the solution to these prob-lems. On the one hand MICO supports high capacitive loads, on the other hand it de-tects overloads even during running operation and safely shuts down. MICO monitors each current channel using the selected current range. If everything is OK, the corre-sponding LED lights up green. The LED starts blinking when 90% of the maximum rating has been reached, giving a visual warning. If the selected current range is ex-ceeded, the current path affected will be switched off. The LED starts blinking red. The service technician will now see at a glance where the fault occurred. This state will be stored and maintained even if power is lost and the machine is powered up again.
Compared to a solution with circuit breakers the implementation of MICO allows sav-ing up to 30% space.
