vSwitch-12Cis a revolutionary digital
switch that replaces mechanical devices in automotive and marine electronics
applications. Using a combination of a
bright color touch screen and remote microprocessor controlled relays, you can create up to
12 custom switch positions activated up to 150 feet away. Add the optional
Ethernet interface adapter (wired or WI-FI) and you can control the unit from
You set your own switch names and functions. Custom design it to
match your car, RV or boat electronics system. The NMEA 0183 compatible wireless option allows you to control
circuits up to 50 feet away using Bluetooth enabled PDA’s and laptops. Place
the remote unit in your engine compartment and control up to twelve 15 amp circuits
from anywhere on your vessel.
vSwitch-12C is compact in size, big
on function. Use vSwitch-12C on your dash
to provide control of important electrical systems such as GPS, Sonar, radios,
navigation lights, bilges, wipers, blowers, and much more. All circuits are
controlled from a single position. The sealed face is water and
corrosion resistant making vSwitch-12C
ideal for wet-deck applications. The color remote display head can be easily
installed with a single self-powered USB or Serial cable while the separate
Relay Interface unit is located near the central bus.
An easy to see large format
5.7" color LCD display shows all switch names and the current status even in
bright sunlight. Color coded buttons shows all possible positions and allows you to
activate only those you need. A built-in clock and ALL-OFF add to the possible
menu positions. You can even program vSwitch-12C to display your boat name
for security. A sealed 4" version is also available for water tight
is available as an add-on option to the popular
sensor, allowing you to combine the functions of digital instrumentation
and switching all in one unit. A single color display can be used to view
vehicle or boat instruments as well as activate your most common switch
circuits. You can even view the actual voltages on each individual circuits to
determine if critical items are indeed functioning correctly.
vSwitch-12C is reprogrammable in the
field to exactly fit
your application. Switch names and positions can be edited with on-screen menus. Load our
vDash display utility on you laptop or PDA and you will be able to
remotely view and control all switch positions.
vSwitch-12C can be controlled using
NMEA 0183 integrated instrumentation sentences ($IIXDR). Switch states and names
are sent out via NMEA 0183 formats so other on-board equipment can control and
display status. Optional software can control the unit directly from a laptop or
PDA using the NMEA 0182 data standard.
vSwitch-12C comes with a remote relay
box that can mounted anywhere and commanded from attached serial cable or
optional wireless Bluetooth. This allows all heavy gauge wiring to be located
close to power distribution panels and eliminates clutter at the helm. The
remote capability even allows duplicate display heads to be located in secondary
locations such as flying bridge and cabins..
vSwitch-12C is housed in a solid
one-piece aluminum water-tight box measuring only 7.5" X 6.5" X 1.25” to fit easily
into any dash configuration. Its small size allows you replace larger mechanical
switches while maintaining lighted position display of on-positions. Unlike
mechanical switches, vSwitch-12C is sealed to
the environment and can even be mounted on the open deck. The optional Wi-Fi
wireless option allows the unit to mounted where the wires are and then be
commanded from up to 300 feet away. Wi-Fi is a industry standard wireless
technology available in most, Laptops, PDA’s and cell phones. Imagine using our
supplied software and your PocketPC PDA to view switch status and activate
desired circuits from anywhere on your vessel.
vSwitch-12C is ideal for any marine
application where space is at a minimum and exposed to the elements. Use vSwitch-12C on your open cockpit
runabout or sailboat. vSwitch-12C is perfect
for that river sled or jet boat where keeping water and the elements out of the
boat is always a problem.
