Digital Switching:

the future is now

Take for example the 77EB, the flagship of the range

from Gold Coast based Riviera Australia. With 6

battery banks, 172 DC circuits, 35 AC circuits, two

generators, two shore power connections, four

battery chargers and an inverter, managing the

onboard systems is a complex task!



does the hard work automatically, with simple

control and monitoring from any of the four touch

screens fitted in engine room, crew quarters, saloon

and flybridge, allowing this boat to be run by a couple

without crew if desired.

“CZone provides Riviera owners with reliable

onboard power electronics. The integrated

system gives our owners more functionality

with less components, while straightforward

and practical design make installation

simple. In Mastervolt, we have a partner that

understands our requirements and provides

Riviera with the quality and reliability our

owners demand.”




On the Riviera 77EB, the CZone network comprises

of 70 modules communicating over the NMEA 2000

bus. The four main modes of operation are Systems

Off, Cruising, Dock Unattended, and Entertaining,

switching multiple AC and DC circuits at the same

time, plus controlling individual AC sources at the

single touch of a control screen.

Advanced AC control allows automatic generator

start/stop, auto changeover of the energy sources,

and full integration with the Mastervolt power





By switching decentrally, it is possible to build smarter systems with less cables and installation

work. Central switchboards are replaced by decentralised digital switching modules, controlled

via a bus system. These modules operate equipment such as lights, pumps and navigation

equipment. Different input modules can be connected to this bus as well.
