This network provides a simple power control mechanism along with the diagnostic capability, and it allows for power control for local and remote towers (shown in Fig. 1). It also has the ability to analyze the power state of both the towers and eliminates the use of LEDs to display power faults. With this implementation, the Control Panel (see Fig. 2) becomes the focal point for system power control.
