Apparatus DC Power Splitter to a Device from Several Power Sources with Controls
Invention describes configurable apparatus providing DC plug-and-power distribution from DC power sources to DC power loads. Configuration of apparatus includes combination of input power interfaces configured to distinguish or interlock power supplies connected to the apparatus. Configuration of apparatus includes combination of output power interfaces configured to distinguish or interlock power loads connected to the apparatus. Apparatus configurations include controller to monitor and control each device connected to the apparatus. Monitored parameters include: voltage, current, temperature. Controller will execute pre-defined algorithm to prevent measured parameters from exceeding set operating criteria for the apparatus and devices connected to the apparatus. Apparatus can be configured as a harness with components and interfaces embedded into the harness, or enclosure with components and interfaces inside enclosure. Apparatus can be configured and controlled by a HOST over wired or wireless network, including INTERNET. Apparatus can be configured to execute real-time commands without operator assistance.
