Press Release
Monday, November 19, 2012

German manufacturers E-T-A & Victron announce a new Victron interface for E-T-A PowerPlex to control electrical equipment more easily.

With the use of the new interface, it is now possible to control a Victron MultiPlus or Quattro inverter/battery charger and other Victron products with PowerPlex.

E-T-A PowerPlex
E-T-A is specialized in the design and development of circuit breakers for the protection of electrical equipment. They have also developed their own CAN-bus multiplexing system: PowerPlex. PowerPlex is an electrical distribution system with which equipment on-board boats and special vehicles is protected and can be operated. PowerPlex is an open system which can be configured on any PC/Laptop operating under Windows.

E-T-A PowerPlex Touch PC
E-T-A's PowerPlex Touch PC display is a component of their PowerPlex CAN-bus system. Using this Touch PC, users can operate the equipment connected to the PowerPlex. The new interface allows control of the following Victron equipment:

    •    MultiPlus or Quattro inverter/battery charger
    •    Lithium-ion 24V 180Ah Battery system
    •    BMV battery monitor
    •    Lynx Shunt Canbus
    •    Skylla-i

NMEA 2000
The communication between E-T-A's PowerPlex and Victron equipment occurs via the NMEA 2000-network. This is an open CAN-bus network in which equipment from different manufacturers can communicate with each other.
The new interface for the PowerPlex Touch PC falls in line with Victron's open network philosophy: a perfect network in which all components can work together; independent of supplier.
