Flexible 24V Current Monitoring
Mico Pro® is the innovative current monitoring system from Murrelektronik for 12 and 24 VDC applications with patented tripping process. The modular system enables you to adapt systems precisely to suit specific applications – offering a favorable cost-benefit ratio while also being economical in their use of space. The patented tripping process assures optimum machine availability. An additional benefit: an integrated concept for potential distribution that significantly declutters the switch cabinet wiring.
You can select between modules with one, two, or four output channels. On the Fix modules, the tripping currents (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 16 A) are fixed which makes them a tamper-proof solution. On the Flex modules, the tripping current can be adjusted at the touch of a button from 1 to 10 A or from 11 to 20 A. Their narrow width of 8, 12, or 24 millimeters enables significant savings in space. Up to 30,000 µF can be loaded per channel. So it's possible to monitor a number of high capacitive loads with one device.
Mico Pro can be cascaded. This means: on a Mico channel with a tripping current of more than 10 A, another Mico Pro station can be connected.
New switch-mode power supplies with an output current of 5 or 10 A can be integrated directly into Mico-Pro® stations. This combination creates more space inside the control cabinet because it replaces the power module. The switch-mode power supply continues to support features like general alarm message, 90 percent early warning, control signal for remote maintenance. You can also supply up to 20 A of power by enabling the parallel mode. Energy efficiency is high, keeping control cabinet temperatures low. With practical bridges that snap in, the switch-mode power supply devices can be connected to the monitoring modules in a few easy steps, without the need for extra wiring.
The intelligent current monitoring system from Murrelektronik can be fully customized to optimally meet the needs of the application. The new online configurator makes this process easy.
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.
With the integrated bridging system, MB Redundancy Balance can be combined with MICO, the electronic load circuit control module, without additional wiring efforts. The bridging system is a quick and easy way to connect modules while avoiding wiring errors and maintaining a current carrying capacity of up to 40A.
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.
Spring clamp terminals are designed so that connection wires can be easily inserted by hand from the front. The connection is permanent and never needs retightening. This is an easy way to make a safe connection while shortening installation time.
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.
