RE-DEFINING CIRCUIT MONITORING

MCMS technology from Anord Mardix simplifies installation and connectivity while providing instant access to data in a user-friendly format. The versatile Core Module™ system is a single monitoring solution with peripherals that are optimised for branch circuit and multi-circuit monitoring applications.

KEY FEATURES

  • The versatile Core Module ™ system – a single monitoring solution with peripherals optimized for branch circuit and multi-circuit monitoring applications, designed to reduce the cost and complexity associated with legacy systems.
  • Presence of voltage detection – detects circuit breaker status even under no load conditions using a proprietary voltage field detection system. It identifies failed circuits that may go unnoticed on conventional monitoring systems.
  • Predictive circuit health analysis – uses proprietary algorithms to analyse circuit signatures over time and detect changes indicative of common failure modes in power supplies and other critical loads.
  • Waveform capture – high resolution power quality data from all circuits is stored for any power quality deviation, providing invaluable data for evaluation of power disturbances.
  • True circuit display – allows data to be expressed according to the actual panel board configuration.
