Do you have a storage drawer on the bottom of your stove? If so, just slide out the drawer and 98% likely you will now have access to your 240v plug!

Slimer, forgive my ignorance, but what is the WRT540 in your diagram? What is its purpose?

The WRT54G is a wireless router flashed with WRT54G firmware to provide a client-side access point. An external ethernet plug would provide the same functionality, but the computer/display would have to be wired. I have a few extra access points that I would tinker around with to try to get it functional with the system.

Well, you don't have to connect your computer if you have the BCS connected to the wireless access point.

You can find it on your network through the IP address.

Still working on it. I have no clue about parts for terminal distribution blocks, connectors, etc. Here's draft version 2.

Looks good! I am curious though, what program are you using to make these diagrams?
