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!

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.

Endless possibilities

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 without the installation of extra components.


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.
