Mikro has pushed technological boundaries to offer customers the latest in
product quality and precision.

Analogue Protective Relays
Analogue Protective Relays use analogue electronic circuits and components in the shape of discrete semiconductor components such as diodes, transistors, or ICs. These are then assembled together on a printed circuit board (PCB) to create the final product.

Digital Protective Relays
Digital Protective Relays use a digital logic IC or microprocessor as the main component to control the essential functions and features. Minimal analogue electronic circuits are used to interface the digital logic part of the relay to the physical world. These analogue and digital circuitries are integrated on a PCB to form the relay. Digital microprocessor relays enable us to implement advanced features using specialist software.

Numerical Protective Relays
Numerical Protective Relays are similar to Digital Protective Relays but posses significantly advanced sensory programmes. This enables them to undertake more complex, precise and detailed analysis of input signals prior to issuing an action.

Microprocessors
Mikro's microprocessors use 16 bit microcontroller, DSP (Digital Signal Processor) engines. Signals are processed by digital means which improves reliability while overcoming the shortfalls of analogue circuits.

SMT
Surface Mount Technology or SMT, allows for a smaller form factor which improves production efficiency and yield (due to automation) and is responsible for improved noise immunity performance.

CAD CAM
At Mikro we use two industrial standard software packages. 1) Altium, for printed circuit board design. 2) Autocad, for mechanical design. Computer aided design and manufacturing complements the end product by giving us rapid prototyping and simulation, improved precision and tolerance and better documentation.

Switch Mode Power Supply
Customers can operate Mikro's relays under different electrical networks (US/Japan 110Volts, Malaysia, Europe, 230Volts). Our power supply units also promote higher efficiency and are lighter weight.

EMC
To perform effectively, all relays must be immune to EMC noise. Mikro's products are sensitive enough to detect small signals while remaining immune to nuisance tripping.
