PREMO releases MV inductive coupler kit for smart-grid apps



The PREMO MV inductive coupler kit for smart-grid apps includes two units of its innovative medium-voltage non-intrusive inductive couplers (Prime & G3 PLC). The MICU 300A-S/LF inductive coupler transmits the PLC signals between power line and PLC data transceiver without connection of communication cable to power line. This inductive coupler has a safer installation (High insulation > 5 kV) than a capacitive coupler. Key advantages: •Very low attenuation at low frequency •Very fast installation •Long distance transmission. •Best choice for cabinet /underground MV •Avoids Powercut. The high-current solution made with high permeability and high performance nanocrystalline materials which avoid saturation problems at high currents. Moreover, it offers low insertion losses, 10dB2dB (@100-250kHz); 5dB2dB (@250-600kHz). This cost-effective solution has been customized for Maxim G3-PLC modems. It is also compatible with Enverv PLC modem Chipsets. It offers an optimum performance at 500kbit for PRIME PLC Smart grids solutions. It is a waterproof compact solution BNC connector integrated in the coupler (other connections available under request). PREMO
