Networked Power Control

The Greeve Networked Power Control System (NPCS) provides reliable, simple installation of networked switching for all platform electrical loads. Instead of wiring individual switches and power cables to each load a simple power bus and a communication network bus are wired around the platform. Power is switched to the loads using a network command to satellitenodes located near the loads.

The NPCS is made up of two basic components: a central control unit (CCU) and remote interface nodes (RIN). The CCU acts as the brains of the system and interfaces with local switches and controls and sends out switch messages to the RINs via the network. The RINs accept messages addressed to their specific loads and switch them on and off. In addition the CCU has a number of directly switched outputs.


The Networked Power Control System can be used in a wide range of applications, including commercial and hobby mobile platforms such as off-road vehicles, kit cars, in-shore and sea-going powered and non-powered boats and yachts, caravans and motorhomes, as well as small military vehicles.
