WSN based Zigbee network has been extensively used in monitoring and controlling purpose in industries. In this paper, deployment of the Zigbee based WSN for monitoring and controlling the power at each work station in the weaving industry is discussed. Here the traditional working of the weaving industry is discussed and the suitability of Zigbee in monitoring and direct load controlling for the efficient power utilization is proposed. The CC2431 module is considered for wireless transmission. The controlling action is made possible with the microcontroller present in the CC2431 module. The main aim of this work is used to monitor the different workstations at industries using Zigbee devices and to correspondingly cut off the power to the particular workstation when it is in idle state without distracting the other workstations. The issues related with power and transmission range of the proposed work are discussed. © 2013 IEEE.
