EATON Multiplex CAN Switches

Electronic Controls for Mobile Hydraulic Machines

Wade Wessler | May 5th, 2016

One of the biggest challenges we find when troubleshooting vehicle issues is wiring errors. Traditionally, most of the wiring on a vehicle is found in the cab section where you have selector switches for vehicle functions.

Here at Cross Company, we like to incorporate fully sealed multiplexed switch solutions when it is economical. Because these solutions have a minimum IP67 rating, we do not have to worry about failure due to the environment. And with their minimal wiring, you greatly reduce your connection points. Watch the video to learn how these switches make your machine lighter (yes!), safer, and easier to operate.

If you are looking for a way to simplify your vehicle's wiring harness, then please consider the EATON multiplex switches. These multiplex solutions allow for easier installation, such as connecting multiple switches at one time as opposed to individual switch installation. With increased lifecycle over traditional mechanical switches, these switches are built to last.
