E-Plex - Next-Generation Digital Switching

E-Plex - Simply Connected

E-Plex offers a simple option to vehicle developers and boat builders looking to reduce the time spent connecting electrical and electronic interfaces, replacing traditional time-consuming wiring with digital switching technology. The networked system transports power and data to every area of the vessel or vehicle – allowing one programmable system to operate everything from lights to air conditioning to generator start-up.

Digital switching technology means the boat or vehicle owners can operate monitoring and control systems simply from one screen, get an overview of system status at any time, and schedule for regular events such as event set up or night mode at the touch of one button – leaving them more time to enjoy their vessel or vehicle.


E-Plex has an open architecture that easily integrates with all forms of equipment and other electronic protocols. With the E-Plex building blocks, designers have the flexibility to create a system with features, functionality and even graphics that are truly unique. E-Plex provides a blank slate that customers can use to create differentiated products consistent with their larger product line or brand strategies.


E-Plex can perform as a simple, stand-alone tank monitoring system or as a fully integrated control system for a megayacht. E-Plex hardware and software has been specifically designed to allow scalability and growth. Many customers deploy E-Plex initially in an extremely simple configuration and then expand it over time either in the field or during model year changes. With E-Plex you can literally "grow as you go".

​Simplicity of Design & Installation

Simplicity of Design & Installation – Via E-Logic, a new system can be designed, documented and brought to market very quickly.

With just two wires, E-Plex provides all the benefits associated with digital switching with less cost, complexity and weight.

High Quality Manufacturing

Energy Solutions are highly regarded for their innovative panel design and high quality manufacturing. Each panel is built and hand finished in the UK, then tested and checked before dispatch.

Diagnostics, Error Detection & Troubleshooting

The E-Plex architecture is robust and does not require costly shielding or termination resistors. The E-Plex "Clock" module includes error detection protocols, troubleshooting features and redundant programming allowing for "plug & play" field replacement or upgrades.

iPad integration

The 801 IPLEX module brings all the functionality and sophistication of E-Plex directly to your customer's iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. The module works in conjunction with the iViewer App giving users a bi-directional touch screen interface for all their E-Plex monitoring and control. The 801 IPLEX module is a complete package with a Wi-Fi access point for up to 5 units, and a USB point to charge the main iPad.


E-Plex marine system example

E-Plex technology has been integrated into the Lagoon 560 since its inception. Each of the luxury catamarans has E-Plex digital switching technology onboard with two panels; one comprising a touch screen interface that integrates with modules throughout the vessel. The digital switching modules control and monitor the AC circuits on board including the generator, AC Changeover, AC Distribution. The system also controls the DC power including selected lighting, fridges & pumps.

E-Plex technology allows CNB to install sophisticated monitoring and control systems within their build program quickly and easily. Their highly sophisticated assembly line builds much of the boats in modular units. Each unit can be constructed with their own monitoring modules so that at the final stage all modules can be easily connected.


E-Plex vehicle system example

A long-standing customer of E-Plex technology, Sovereign have now built over 70 horseboxes using E-Plex digital switching to deliver high-end technology to their discerning customers.

Within the horseboxes, the E-Plex system controls the majority of the domestic power requirements via the main control panel, and via the remote iPad control. The control panels have numerous screens, all branded as needed, and allow pre-programming and on-going monitoring of all elements of the system.

What Systems can E-plex integrate with?

In a typical application, E-Plex can control & monitor systems including:

  • Tank levels
  • Engines
  • Hydraulics
  • Security and multimedia
  • Gensets
  • Heating & air conditioning
  • GPS
  • User-defined lighting
  • iPad
