Your benefits

  • CZone digital switching reduces overall system costs and creates a fail-safe, easy-to-use switching system that can be configured offline prior to installation.
  • Mastervolt’s MasterBus CAN fully cooperates with CZone digital switching CAN protocol through the unique bridge interface.
  • All power electronics and digital switching components are controlled by two
    small EasyView 5 touch screens.
  • CZone MasterBus Wireless interface controls all the available components from an iPad; the promotion trailer can be controlled from anywhere inside the vehicle.
  • Two safety relays make the battery pack function as two separate, redundant power sources. When one battery is switched off the show goes on with the second battery.

Customer comment

“When we were introduced to CZone digital switching it was a real eye opener. The components were a third of the costs of the traditional industrial system we used before, and the CZone digital control & monitoring network simplifies installation of our electrical systems via the replacement of complicated, cumbersome wiring. Combined with the implementation of Mastervolt power electronics, this is a unique system.”

The system

The CZone digital control and 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. CZone removes the one-to-one relationship between each physical switch and the item being controlled, and allows multiple devices to be controlled by a single touch on either a dedicated screen in the system or an iPad. This simplifies the display and ensures critical items are not forgotten.

The engineers choice

Digital switching by CZone costs only a third as much as traditional digital switching components. It makes digital information available such as voltage, current and fusing for every specific output channel. Most of the modes used are already pre-programmed and new modes are easy to implement. The digital fusing saves a lot of time searching for fuse problems as they are constantly monitored with warnings appearing on the central display.
