CUI Inc. (Tualatin, OR) demonstrated a new graphical user interface for its digital power modules Novum ACE at APEC 2013 last week. Providing a system-level approach to power management, the Novum ACE platform enables the user to configure and control all Novum Advanced Power products while monitoring the operation of the entire power system.
Novum ACE was developed on a single click, one entry concept that would support all products within the Novum Advanced Power portfolio. The interface allows designers to quickly configure several parameters, including power sequencing, margining, current sharing, fault limits, and output voltage. Users are also able to monitor, in real time, multiple data points including output current, input voltage, internal module temperature, and a range of module and system faults.
“Our aim in designing the Novum ACE software platform was to take an intuitive, system-level approach to digital power management,” explained CUI Inc’s Senior Vice President, Mark Adams. “Digital power has long been stigmatized as being too complex for many organizations to implement. Novum ACE takes much of the complexity out of the system thanks to its simple one-click design,” concluded Adams.
