1. A method of monitoring the status of a measurable parameter of an electrical circuit, including the steps of:

  • measuring the magnitude of said parameter and generating an analog signal representative of said magnitude;

    passing said analog signal to an analog to digital converter;

    generating by the analog to digital converter a count value representative of said magnitude;

    comparing said count value with a threshold value and assigning from the comparison a status signal, said status signal having two possible values which thereby indicates whether the count value is greater than or less than said threshold value;

    transmitting said status signal via a communications network to a display; and

    displaying on the display an indication of the value of the status signal.
