Interesting to see that Wago has a smart grid I/O portfolio. I wasn't aware that suppliers were already rolling out entire portfolios of smart grid products already.

Chuck, Smart grid-ready products are definitely a push for automation and control.  The combination of more intelligent devices, high power plus the need for advanced networking and analytics make it a good area for innovation.  Plus I'm sure lots of money will be spent on this infrastructure in the next 3-5 years and beyond.
