MasterPlex Primary Electrical Control System

Without a doubt the most advanced system in the world

MasterPlex Primary Electrical Control System

MasterPlex is so revolutionary that it has its own dedicated website at MasterPlex.

In a nutshell it combines, in one small enclosure, for up to 4 battery banks, split charging, remote battery isolation, flat battery protection, programmable high/low voltage alarms, programmable switch inputs, LED outputs, volt free relays, dedicated LEDs for built in functions and becomes the central "server" for a complete multiplex control system allowing entire wiring looms to be replaced with a simple plug in "network" cable.

Everything is completely user adjustable from PC (Windows) software. Once configured the PC is no longer required. Windows based diagnostics software built in.

Finally, this is a very large website and it grows each week. It is much larger than most commercial websites. This is due to the enormous amount of technical information contained within it. Look around. Not all of the information is available from the top pages. This would make the links and buttons too numerous. Much technical information is contained in the technical section but there is also a lot of other information within the products pages where this relates directly to a particular product.

Also, where a subject has been more thoroughly covered in another section, links will often appear within documents or pages. This can result in the reader ending up within a completely different section of the website. Remember, your browser's back button is your best friend.
