Multiplex Switch Module

Posted on April 27, 2011

Eaton Corp. has developed a new high-performance electronic multiplex switch module designed to provide increased flexibility and sealing ratings for buses, recreational, emergency, street sweepers, specialty vehicles and mobile hydraulic systems. The new multiplexing module is engineered to provide a comprehensive and simple dash panel switch solution that reduces the complexity and cost of wire harnesses with a digital semiconductor. This reduces the overall weight of the vehicle, provides more space in the cab and reduces system costs and installation time, the company said.

With a broad spectrum of graphics and various color frames and rockers available, Eaton’s electronic multiplex switch system incorporates LED backlit graphics. The system’s software can offer unlimited circuit and lighting flexibility, the company said, with J1939 CANbus controllable dimming, mode, scaling and flashing options.
