MICO – Solutions for Intelligent Power Distribution

Complex power supply systems with many components require reliable load protection. Switch mode power supplies are the core of these systems since they electronically monitor output voltage and output current. If there is a short circuit or an overload, protective devices downstream (for example circuit breakers) react slower than the power supply and do not ensure selectivity. This can cause critical situations like voltage drops or even cable fires.Our compact MICO modules help eliminate these problems: MICO is an essential component for protecting power supply systems! Target-oriented protection is a big challenge for modern power supply systems. MICO is an intelligent power distribution system that meets this challenge! Errors are found quickly while…
