This software was designed to support the use of the Microchip MCP39F501 device.
The MCP39F501 is a highly integrated, single-phase power-monitoring IC designed for real-time measurement of input power for AC/DC power supplies, power distribution units and industrial applications. It includes dual-channel delta sigma ADCs, a 16-bit calculation engine, EEPROM and a flexible 2-wire interface. An integrated low-drift voltage reference addition to 94.5 dB of SINAD performance on each measurement channel allows for better than 0.1% accurate designs across a 4000:1 dynamic range.
The MCP39F501 Power Monitor Demonstration Board is a fully functional single-phase power monitor. This low-cost design does not use any transformers and requires few external components. The device calculates active power, reactive power, RMS current, RMS voltage, power factor, line frequency and other typical power quantities as defined in the MCP39F501 data sheet. The MCP39F501 Power Monitor Utility software is used to calibrate and monitor the system, and can be used to create custom calibration setups. For some accuracy requirements, only a single point calibration may be needed.
