As the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) expands, nearly every device will be connected. Engineers are demanding more information about the operational condition of a control cabinet. They want to know the health of their batteries and the overall operational status of the power system. With the need for higher availability, the reliability of the power system within a cabinet is more important than ever. Integration into the many available Ethernet protocols is important for remote diagnostics and scheduling system maintenance.
