Murrelektronik: Mico Pro Flexible 24V Current Monitoring
January 10, 2023
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.
Full Power! Mico Pro available with integrated power supply
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.
