With BALS-CONNECT, the permanent monitoring of individual loads is easier than ever. The ready-to-install solution makes your systems and machines fit for the demands of digitalisation and Industry 4.0. Power distributors that are equipped with BALS-CONNECT exworks allow the connected loads to be integrated directly in the infrastructure of the networked world. All relevant data of the power consumers are not only continuously recorded and stored, they are also available to you via the Bals Cloud independent of location – uncomplicated, transparent and in real time. Use BALSCONNECT to increase the efficiency and simplicity in the administration of any number of loads and applications. Highest security standards thanks to state-of-the-art encryption are a matter-of-course.



The BALS-CONNECT web app clearly displays the load data.
