TECHNICAL BACKGROUND

The CZone

®

digital control & monitoring network simplifies installation of electrical systems

through the replacement of complicated, cumbersome wiring to switch and fuse panels,

with state-of-the-art, robust interfaces and light NMEA 2000 network cable. It also provides

a sophisticated solution via the automation of complicated control and monitoring issues

associated with today’s onboard systems.

Installers recognise an immediate benefit with reductions in cable usage, harness weights and installation

times. The CZone system also integrates many standalone components into one intuitive system. Wiring

is dramatically simplified as the CZone system is designed to remove complex switching clusters and

wiring runs. Modules can easily be added into the system to best suit the OEM and end-users’ needs.

Traditional electrical DC wiring

Wiring DC systems can be complex and installation time can be extensive. The larger

the system, the more wire is required, which creates weight and space concerns, not to

mention increased cost and complexity of design and manufacturing. Basic maintenance

and trouble shooting of traditional wiring systems can be difficult to manage.

n

Switch panel wiring is complicated and extremely labor intensive to install.

n

Cable runs are long and have multiple conductors.

n

Switching of common circuits is complex.

n

Long wire runs require larger cable, adding weight, increasing cost and reducing space.
