Within every MasterBus network all available sources for your connected products can
be linked to all available targets. The manuals of the products concerned provide a clear
overview of available sources and targets and simplify the configuration of events.
Example of an event
In the given example you set the
following event: The batteries/battery
monitor tell(s) the generator to start.
Say that you use the MasterShunt as a
battery monitor within the MasterBus
network. In this scenario the MasterShunt
is the initiator or the ‘source’ and the
generator is the ‘target’. The commando
= start or autostart. The data = on. By
setting multiple events (source, target,
commando + data) you can program the
entire MasterBus network.
Digital switching with MasterBus
Another example of a MasterBus event is
the use of Digital Switching. The pressing
of a light switch, for instance, activates
the lighting. The source is the switch, the
target the lamp. One source can also be
used to control multiple targets, such as
the lamps in this example.
Thanks to the underlying communication
between all the equipment connected to
the MasterBus network, the configuration
of events offers you endless possibilities.
If you wish, the switch in the example
can, for instance, activate not only the
lights but also the inverter that provides
power to your TV.
All this and much more is available

The remarkable simplicity
of MasterBus events
Every MasterBus system can be set to your requirements - in essence, it’s
like welcoming your own personal butler onboard. And MasterBus ‘events’
are how you train the butler. For example, you can set the generator to start
automatically when the batteries are almost empty. Use MasterBus
events to configure your system so that each component can activate
another. MasterBus: At your service!
