When you get the hang of this you should swap to Arduino. Free programming interface, boards are like $10 now, and all of your high low temp guard, high low voltage guard, high low amp guard can all be programmed into the if-then statements of the program body. Its a lot of fun when you get in there. A lot of cheap and easy to implement sensors available.
Raspberry pi is fun too. You can set them up to output to a display as well for live info on your electric system.
