THE NEXT GENERATION OF MISSION CRITICAL MONITORING

MCMS has proved itself an economical solution for monitoring new installations and MCMS units are replacing more traditional Branch Circuit Monitoring (BCM) units. The big advantage is that they can be used to upgrade existing systems as well as being designed into new projects. They are well-suited for retrofit and small enough to fit inside existing panels.

Using a modular architecture with a large suite of interface cards allows the MCMS to provide features only found in high end single circuit power quality monitors at the branch circuit level. The cards can be optimized for branch circuit, multi-circuit and busway monitoring and the result is a new level of reliability, visibility and peace of mind for critical power operators.

So far, Anord Mardix MCMS systems have been used on over 25 large-scale datacenter projects and hundreds of small and mid-sized deployments across five continents. Our MCMS has been widely deployed by many of the world’s largest data center companies with thousands of installations.
