1. A circuit monitoring device for monitoring individual circuits having at least one field device which is configured to provide a measured electrical parameter of a circuit, the circuit monitoring device comprising:

  • a processor, having a memory and an input electrically coupled to the circuit which is configured to receive the measured electrical parameter of the circuit, and modules comprising software to configure the processor, the modules including;

    a comparison module configured to;

    compare a digital value, which corresponds to a magnitude of the measured electrical parameter, to at least one threshold value stored in the memory, wherein the threshold value defines at least one range of digital values, andassign a status based on the digital value being within the particular range defined by the threshold value;

    a communication module configured to generate a status signal including at least the assigned status; and

    a transmitter configured to transmit the status signal to a remote computing system over a network for output, by the remote computing system, of the status.
