If you need to switch a number of larger loads, the new SNAP-TEX-MR10-16C will make your job easier.
Just snap a SNAP-HD-G4F6 cable to the top of a 32-channel SNAP-ODC-32-SRC digital output module, then plug the other ends of the cable into the header connectors on two of the new breakout boards.
Now your 32 digital output channels can each switch a load up to 10 amps, through the mechanical relays on the breakout boards.

After years of advising clients to install an energy monitoring system in buildings they designed, Seattle-based LMN Architects decided it was time to "eat their own dog food" and monitor their own building's energy use.
Their recent blog post, Energy Monitoring 101: Open Standards, talks about the experience: choosing the hardware, installing it, using software to produce a visual graph of energy use—and where they plan to go from here.
