ATC Diversified Electronics Introduces MPA2

Upgraded motor protection analyzer measures, analyzes, and reports critical performance information

Newell, W.Va.—April 14, 2023—The automation experts at ATC Diversified Electronics, maker of devices for automation, motor protection, process monitoring, and power quality, have introduced the new MPA2 motor protection analyzer. MPA2 is a micro-controlled three-phase motor protection analyzer specifically designed to protect electric loads and motors from failure and damage due to common current and voltage faults.

The new MPA2 has some major upgrades over the original version. New features include two-line, 16-character LCD display for greater specificity and higher-quality information, four front panel push buttons for operation/protection, standard RS485 Modbus RTU communication protocol, flexible DIN rail or surface mounting options, UL94V0 enclosure material, and access to a wide variety of reports. Plus, all of this is available at a lower cost than the original!

Protecting an investment in machinery is critical to all functions of an organization, as maximized uptime impacts profits, quality, and customer satisfaction. A reliable, cost-effective method of monitoring motor health – and deactivating power before a potential problem becomes catastrophic – is a necessity.

The MPA2 constantly supervises current and voltage values. When any harmful condition occurs, the output connection is deactivated until the fault disappears, power line conditions return to an acceptable level, and the motor has been totally cooled.

The MPA2 measures, analyzes, and reports critical information such as current, voltage, frequency, power factor (PF), reactive power (KVA), real power (KW), and energy consumption (KWH). Charting performance history enables a more-informed scheduling of future maintenance.
