Company

The ICMI 40 year plus partnership with the distribution utility industry has provided simple, intuitive universal controls for voltage regulators and reclosers.

Flexible communication options integrate the controls into SCADA/DMS and Smart Grid schemes for remote monitoring, control and volt/VAR optimization and distributed generation including renewable generation.

Milestones

  • Founded by Dirk and Sonja Mooibroek in 1973. Dirk’s background was building military aircraft and missile electronic systems.
  • Beginning in 1975 through the mid-1990’s ICMI designs and builds the McGraw-Edison Autobooster, Simplified Regulator and the first microprocessor based full 32 step voltage regulator control marketed as the CL-1 through CL-5.
  • ICMI was the first to offer a universal control for use with any 32 step single-phase voltage regulator.
  • Smart Grid acceptance in distribution applications prompts a major USA utility in 2009 to commission ICMI to develop Smart Grid firmware. ICMI supplies the new firmware which can be downloaded into UVR-1 controls up to 10 years old.
  • In 2012 ICMI releases the URC-IIA and URC-III TS (triple single) recloser controls. ICMI first established their experience with recloser controls in 1990 with models CMR-1 and CMR-3 for Electroswitch/Lexington reclosers.
New Beginnings

In 2014 ICMI was acquired by Reinhausen Group which affords access to the people and processes of a global technology leader (Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen) and a world class organization.

  • Reinhausen selects ICMI to be the principal access point in the United States to end-user utilities including generation, transmission and distribution for the complete Messko© product brand. ICMI maintains MESSKO© inventory in its Amelia, OH facility.
  • ICMI is also selected to be the principal access point in the United States to end-user utilities for the Transformer Automation product group which includes well known products like TAPCON©, Trafoguard and TESSA (asset fleet monitoring system).
  • ICMI expands the sales and marketing team across the United States with the additional solutions and products now available through Reinhausen Group.
  • ISO 9001 implementation initiates with a goal of third party certification in 2017
