Ethernet connected switchboards are widely being used in household and commercial buildings to save energy and reduce maintenance costs. Switchboards can be connected to a computer through an Ethernet cable. Electricity use, system status and other data is transmitted to the computer through the Ethernet cable. Data obtained on the computer is analyzed by energy experts and suggestions to minimize energy consumption. For example, Enerlin’x system manufactured by Schneider is a smart panel that transmits energy consumption data to computer through Ethernet and Modbus interfaces.
