Intelligent Power Distribution
MICO Basic is Murrelektronik's intelligent power distribution module for 24 V DC applications. It monitors the power distribution and reacts to short circuits by shutting the channel down as late as possible but as early as necessary. MICO Basic is perfect for any application that protection a lot of sensors and actuators with similar demands. The current ranges are preset and the modules monitor four or eight channels with 2, 4 or 6 A.
When 90% of the selected current load on a channel is reached, the LED blinks green. This helps to prevent wear of motor valves at an early stage if channels fail during operation because of an increased demand of power.
Up to 20,000 µF can be loaded per channel. So it's possible to monitor a number of high capacitive loads with one device.
MICO eliminates start-up spikes with a cascading start of individual current paths. This allows you to size your power supplies to your average use as opposed to your start up needs.
Multiple MICO modules can be connected via the integrated bridging system. This reduces both installation time and the potential for wiring errors.
Spring clamp terminals enable installation in the shortest time possible. They are maintenance-free and vibration resistant. Periodic maintenance to retighten screw terminals is no longer required.
MICO saves the operating condition of each channel even during loss of power. This simplifies troubleshooting when the channel is brought back online.
MB Redundancy modules have worldwide approvals. This is very important for companies working internationally.
