While many individuals seek power, control, and intelligence, North Atlantic Industries has taken action and combined all three intangibles into one tangible form: its iPM intelligent power monitor and control device. The iPM monitors frequency, voltage, DC components, and phase sequences on either delta connected or 1- or 3-phase wye power lines. If any of these metrics reach power levels that differ from preprogrammed limits, the power monitor and control device’s 10 A internal relay will break the connection between power and load. Not only that, a background self-test feature constantly tracks iPM’s own health, providing enhanced reliability.
And the iPM is not just another pretty face amongst embedded products. This thing is built to last: It complies with MIL-STD-810C’s environmental requirements, MIL-STD-704E’s input transient stipulations, and MIL-STD-461’s EMI demands. Additionally, its rugged design makes it highly suitable for airborne, ground, and shipboard applications. The unit operates from -55 °C to +100 °C and includes an 80 to 230 Vrms universal input voltage range, plus a 47 to 800 Hz universal input frequency range. And don’t forget the RS-485 serial interface for real-time data reads.
