HEARTBEAT power supply features bright optical indicators that provide quick confirmation of the operating status. Three traffic light displays with green, yellow and red LEDs continuously inform the user about the internal operating status. Indicated parameters are “Stress Level” “Lifetime” and "Load Level”.

“Stress Level” is like the heartbeat of the unit, reversible in the medium term. It is driven by both the electrical and thermal load. If the internal temperature rises or falls as a consequence of changing load and/or varying ambient temperature, the “pulse” of the device is affected.

“Lifetime” tells the user how much service life remains for the unit. It is based on the total of all loads and is irreversible. When the indicator enters the red zone, the remaining useful life is less than 8 years. This means the unit should be replaced at the next available scheduled maintenance period.

“Load Level” no-delay indicator is reversible and indicates the actual load on the device in real time. If 80% is reached the indicator changes from green to yellow, a red bar appears if the load increases to over 100%.
