Abstract : The status of a power supply is monitored to control operation of on time and off time counters respectively producing a power restart time count and measuring the duration of power interruptions. The restart time is computed as a function of the measured duration of the power interruptions by programmed time delay control and comparator components operative through a latch circuit to control relay operation of a power output circuit through which operation of electronic equipment is regulated to safely accommodate power disturbances with minimum shutdown time.
