Master Panels integrate powerful combination of innovative Smart Patch Panels, user-friendly Master Control Panels and software to offer real-time tracking and reporting of network-wide physical layer activity. This system offers truly unmatched ability to manage the intricate network.

Smart master panels allow buildings to monitor important distribution points 24/7 from substations, generators, and service entrances, to the mains, feeders, and loads. These help enhance network reliability through tracking of equipment status, real-time power quality, trending loads, and alarms and logging events. Today, Ethernet is the most prevalent communication protocol within professional buildings, which provides fast data transmission. Because of Enerlin’X digital system, it is possible to connect switchboards via Ethernet just like other devices through RJ45 socket.

Master panel solutions range from energy and network to asset management that is tailored for every site. Visibility of energy consumption and supply system is provided by a local installed software and online services provide better convenience and mobility. User-friendly displays of the data stored in devices is accessible through Ethernet and available on web browsers.

Automatizazion trends

Master Panels provide tiered views of your whole network, from the rack and cabinet, to work area and floor layouts that show complete circuit diagrams as well as active equipment. The circuit diagrams are shown locally on LCD-equipped Control Panels as well as Smart Patch Panels and Enclosures. The entire network information is kept in a software-driven database that is automatically updated in real time with every movement, addition and changes made, which ensures that the condition of the network is known every time.

Software utilization reports allow you see the available switch or patch panel ports. Also, master control panel can track end devices by location,  manufacturer, equipment type, service or other standards, which provide better utilization and visibility of the critical assets. Circuit trace capability in master panel quickly establishes the site of a fault within a channel and displays the information on control panels to guide the onsite staff, which drastically decreases the time needed to locate and fix any network outage. Control panels provide real-time observation of networks in remote offices, which helps to guarantee compliance with IT policies in the business and discouraging illegal alterations on the network.

For instance, EagleEye Connect (EEC) by Siemon is an automated infrastructure management software that offers unparalleled IT asset monitoring, connectivity management and network visualization capabilities. The physical layer connections as well as the status of IT device are automatically evaluated and documented, which provide IT staff a very reliable information database for making network management decisions.

Smart Panels allow users to manage electrical distribution assets in various locations across the campus or the globe. They are able to monitor energy information and physical properties such cycle count, trip status, and contact wear indicators.

Energy demand across the world is rising because of economic, population, and industrial growth. While at the same time, it is our responsibility to decrease greenhouse gas emissions in order to diminish their disastrous effects on climate change and global warming. It is my belief that companies, individuals, governments and industries are stakeholders who should have the commitment to protect our common future through consuming energy in a responsible way. This is where the master panel technology comes in.

Some actual problems

The fast rise of the city population has political, economic and social repercussions, and environmental considerations remain crucial to this integrated dilemma. Cities represent ¾ of the energy consumed and 80 percent of carbon dioxide emissions across the world, and represent the biggest of challenge on environmental policy. Urbanisation will only increase, as cities today house ½ of the world population and by 2050 they are set to host ¾ of the world population.

Cities are adopting “Renewable City Strategy” in an attempt to become cities that use only energy that is generated from renewable sources while at the same time respecting the values of sustainability. This strategy targets two main energy consumers that is buildings and transportation. The cities will continue addressing the other sources of greenhouse gas emissions in partnership with businesses and residents.

Critism & Controversies

In spite of the benefits this technology has to network professionals, the systems involved have a reputation of being difficult and complex to implement. As long as the management efficacies and security capabilities associated with the systems offer a clear and instant impact on the network operations, the perceived complexity will remain a barrier to some.
