The USC-II offers simplicity in setup, installation, and superb performance in a cost effective universal voltage regulator control for applications not requiring remote communications capabilities such as line voltage regulators. It offers an economically attractive alternative to continuing the repair of existing analog regulator control or where changes in the distribution system now present the possibilities of loop feeds on "Wye" distribution systems. With its advanced technology, USC-II has reverse power flow capabilities as well as 0.5% metering accuracy over a range of -40°C to +85°C. The USB PC/data port can be used to either configure settings into the USC-II or to capture up to 12 months of events and metered data onto an 1GB ICMI Flash Drive DATA-PAK in monthly files. The USC-II Universal Simple Control is a microprocessor-based single-phase tap changer voltage regulator control and can be retrofitted onto all popular single-phase step voltage regulators. Differences in regulator types - operation counters, neutral polarity, and holding switch- are easily addressed with USC-II hardware and setup program options. The USC-II firmware is upgradeable via USB drive. The USC-II has been tested and is compliant with ANSI-IEEE RFI-SWC C-37.90-1&2 (2002-2004 RF Standards) by the AEP-Dolan Tech Center in Columbus, OH.

*Note, When using 120VAC external power, polarity is CRITICAL!
Note: EXTERNAL SOURCE power obtained from DC to AC inverters may not work with this unit.
The USC-II front panel USB Port can be connected to a PC to program settings using the ICMI USC-II Utility Suite. The control settings can also be entered manually. A 1GB USB Flash Drive with swivel will store up to twelve individual months of metered data/events when installed. ICMI proprietary Windows based software can be used to convert this data for comprehensive analysis.
The USC-II control plus various hinge/hardware and harness kits convert easily to all regulator types and minimizes stocking costs – they are identical to those used with UVR-1 control. The control is suited for all tap changer models including the newer Cooper “Quick Drives”.
USC-II is COPYRIGHT PROTECTED and is a proprietary technology control product of ICMI.

ICMI reserves the right to modify this design specification in any way it sees fit to meet corporate goals.
Now available on the USC-II voltage regulator control is Data and Event Logging capablity using an external 1GB USB flash drive. After the DATA-PAK flash drive has been plugged into the front panel of the USC-II, it captures and stores both metered data and associated events in twelve (12) monthly files that are date and time stamped. Then after downloading onto a pc, ICMI developed Windows software translates and display this data as information in a user friendly format (see monthly file shown below). As an alternative this data can be transferred into Excel files for analysis by the customer. The control gathers data twice a second and logs this data every five (5) seconds along with any events that may have occurrred during the period. If not downloaded, eachnly files is successively over written following the 12 th month
In addition to the above graphs and tables (shown in a clockwise direction) - up to 12 graphs with a scalable axis, a table of minimum and maximum values, and a table of events - is a listing of USC-II control settings (not shown). Metered data includes Load Volts, Load Center Volts, Load Amps, Phase Angle, Frequency, Tap Position, Operation Count, Power Factor, KVA, KW, and KVAR. Events would include a Tap Change, Power Flow Reversal, Voltage Limits, selected Alerts, and status of the removable USB drive as well as the Auto/Manual switch - all are date and time stamped.
