Cordex CXC controllers bring advanced monitoring technology to the Cordex series of rectifiers. The CXC controller comes in a wide array of mounting options including rack mount (CXCR), panel mount (CXCP), and a module configuration (CXCM) for installation in 1kW Cordex rectifier shelves.

The CXC controller includes a PDA-style touch screen GUI for simple and convenient local setup. A built-in web server provides alternate setup via local or remote IP access using a standard Windows Internet Explorer browser.

The integrated logging feature allows the capture of data from multiple inputs for AC/DC voltages, load/battery current, and cell voltage/temperature. Common applications of the CXC logging include power system details, thermal performance of outdoor enclosures, battery cell specifics, or mains variations captured by an AC voltage watchdog. The CXC I/O feature set can be easily expanded with the addition of CXC Smart Peripherals such as battery cell monitoring, shunt multiplexing, and alarm relay expansion.

Cordex CXC system controllers ensure effortless operation of the Cordex rectifier family. Time consuming, complicated set up and monitoring of DC power systems are now a thing of the past.

  • LCD touch-screen and web based GUI
  • Internet ready, integrated SNMP
  • User definable alarms and data logging
  • Flexible battery management features
  • Multiple mounting and installation options
  • Upgradeable I/O via CXC Smart peripherals
