How does digital switching work?

Digital Switching System, which replaces traditional mechanical switches and circuit breakers on board with digitally controlled power distribution modules. These modules are controlled by LightHouse OS based multifunction displays, mobile devices or programmable switch panels located anywhere on board.

Designed for marine environments, digital switching systems replace mechanical switches and circuit breakers with robust and compact digital circuit control modules. Modules are usually customized to meet the exact needs of the system being controlled and communicate with each other using the NMEA2000 network.



Digital switches reduce the number of mechanical switches on the ship's console. The extra space created allows the boat designer to offer the owner a sleek and modern console design.



With digital switching systems, shipbuilders can greatly reduce the size and length of cables needed to distribute power throughout the ship. This makes the boat lighter overall, and, compared to traditional wired boats, will result in significant cost savings.
