This is just a dump of photos taken during a Mastervolt dry run (read-couldn't wait to install the stuff properly). All I can say is WOW.
I will explain each photo as I get a chance and as I learn more;
The main input/output modules. DC Distribution 500 on left and Mastershunt 500 on right.
The main distribution modules Digital DC 10X10Amp (Three, one port forward, one at chart table, one port side engine room.)
I set up 4 sample loads;
1. Hella fan
2. Halogen cabin light
3. A reading light - with DR Led LED.
4. Alpenglow cabin light
You can name the loads and the names show up on the MasterView Easy touch screen. This is your main controller. The darker lines on the right/bottom of each switch box means that the circuit is on, top/left means that it is off. The PC is only for setup and programming.
Each circuit can be controlled in a number of sources, including;
1. Local switch (e.g. on this reading light).
2. By a Cole Hersee/Carling type rocker switch
3. By the MasterView.
4. By the software on the laptop.
5. By sending a cell phone SMS message to a Mastervolt GPRS Module installed on the network. I may pass on this option.
The green PCB is the Switch Input 4, this can take 4 rocker switches which can be set to control any circuit on any of the Digital DC 10X10Amp units. Lets say you decide to control the spreader lights from from your bunk in the aft cabin. Just install a Switch Input 4 (or Switch Input 3), connect it to the nearest Masterbus unit, set up the software and its done.
The MasterView Easy can display a selection of data. This is the "home page" which displays Amps in/out of the house battery and voltage.
This is the display with a charger in the system (not the MV Combi) just a temp one I use. Interestingly the charging amps show up as a minus.
Would you prefer it in red?
State of the Master Shunt with the charger off.
Software showing a blown fuze on the DC Distribution 500.
Same blown fuse shown on the MasterView Easy - nice.
All lights can be set up as dim-able by just keeping the switch pressed.
Now this switch controls the cabin light.
A few mouse clicks later it controls the reading light.
