Monitor Power using IC


When a system uses both AC and DC power, two different ICs are required for Power Monitoring to ensure superior performance and accuracy. Many of the applications such as Solar Inverters, Smart Lighting and Cloud Servers often use both modes to maintain safe operation, AC as the main Power Supply while DC as backup Power Supply, or vice-versa. Microchip Technology Inc has solved this problem and eased up the process of power monitoring by launching a flexible dual-mode power monitoring IC that measures both AC and DC modes with an accuracy of 0.1 percent error. Power calculations and event monitoring are also one of the main features of this IC.
