Easily control and monitor any onboard function of your vehicle from the Garmin infotainment display using the power of EmpirBus™ digital switching.

Advanced Automation for the RV

Advanced Automation for the RV

EmpirBus digital switching brings all of the power and convenience of advanced home and luxury car automation to your vehicle. Featuring scalability and durability from extensive use in tough environments, it is designed for cost efficiency, modularity and an intuitive experience. Control electronic systems such as lighting, slide-outs, entertainment and security systems, air conditioning, temperature and much more.

Elegant Simplicity

The EmpirBus digital switching system is ideally suited to new-build installations because:

  • OEMs can choose the module(s) that best fits the power requirements and monitoring needs for each custom integration.
  • Compiling the desired features into our provided module/channel templates lends to development of programming to meet each OEM’s needs.

Programming can easily be reused for any new installation or modified for options. EmpirBus experts will match that list of requirements and channels to the best combination of specific modules and accessories. The customized touchscreen user interface is loaded right onto the Garmin display. And modules, accessories and components are rigorously tested to ensure system behavior fully matches the specifications.

The Power of Digital Switching

Instead of space-consuming and labor-intensive fuse and circuit breaker assemblies, EmpirBus digital switching uses compact digital control modules to simplify a user’s control system. Each module can support between 16 and 31 input and output circuits that are customized to meet the exact needs of the equipment being controlled.

Each EmpirBus system connects to the existing network, which lets it communicate with the Garmin infotainment display and other technology on the network. Flexible network architecture enables EmpirBus systems to be mounted near the equipment they are controlling, reducing the amount of necessary cabling. This makes the system easier to install and troubleshoot than traditional switch systems — and also reduces cost and complexity. Switching paired with Garmin fixed or wireless touchscreens brings a whole new level of freedom and flexibility to your design.
