EGX300 Marketing information
Expected release date: March 24, 2009
The EGX300 will replace the EGX400
Easier to set up - no additional web page programming software needed for
standard web pages
Same foot print as EGX100
Power over Ethernet control power option for easy installation
But the EGX400 has 2 serial ports and has both fiber & copper Ethernet
connections
The EGX300 can connect to devices via Ethernet and via other gateways,
which the EGX400 can not
An EGX300 + an EGX100 should have about the same cost, or lower, than
an EGX400
Very few customers actually bring fiber to the devices or gateways, but if
needed, third party adapters are available

Target channels

EGX300 has good potential for sale by distributors


Simple easy to understand and sell
Suggestion: create bundles with special pricing such as 5 meters + an
EGX300
Sales by distributors allow PAEs to focus on more complex systems
Some potential for panel builders for EGX300
Opportunity to provide equipment based means to view data from panels
and switchgear
Small potential for system integrators
Easy to install
A few customization opportunities, such as custom web pages and logos for
the EGX300

Target Markets

EGX300 is targeted at customers wanting basic, simple systems


Building, commercial, small industrial
The same customers that typically only need power meter level of
functionality
The EGX300 provides an opportunity to build for the future
If the customer shows good potential to grow to large system, or a system
with more sophisticated meters use EGX300

When should I sell an EGX300?

Customer currently wants very basic information


Desires very simple installation
No software to install
Power over Ethernet compatible
Easily view current status via web browser to be viewed by multiple users
Wants the data to use in his software applications, like Excel

But the customer profile indicates good potential for ION Enterprise
Later sell up to ION Enterprise, using the EGX300 as an Ethernet Gateway.

Note that if the user has multiple locations, and wants personnel at
each remote location to view basic data for that location, an EGX300
could be used at each remote location.
