Monitor And Controll Your Energy Usage With PowerBox

Were starting to see more and more green designs, which is nice, some people are really concerned about the planet we live in. The PowerBox is part of the Cornell University student projects 2008, and its main goal is to calculate and report the following parameters:

  • Real power
  • Apparent power
  • Power factor
  • RMS Voltage
  • RMS Current
  • Frequency
  • Energy usage (Kilowatt-Hours)

All of the data is gathered by a C application which shows real time graphs and data display. Another feature of the PowerBox is that it features a remote switch that allows the computer to turn the power on or off and set wattage limits for auto shutdown. This way people can monitor and control their energy usage. Good job Cornell students.
