Rosenbauer Chassis Electrical Control System
V-MUX What is it? The Weldon V-MUX is a central control system utilized by the new Rosenbauer engines to manage and control the electrical system on the apparatus and provide a centralized place for the operator to activate and deactivate most of the electrical components on the apparatus. The screen is located adjacent to the drivers seat and will sometimes also be referred to as the Vista Display. Most of the normal chassis operations can be found on one of several screens displayed on the V-MUX.

Activates and deactivates all warning lights on the apparatus with the touch of one button. Once activated, warning lights can be individually deactivated and reactivated by using the buttons in the warning light menu screen. If a light is deactivated from the warning light menu screen, it will default back on next time the E-master is cycled off and then on. This ensures that all warning lights are on each time the E-master is activated. If the use of specific lights are required but not all lights are needed, they can be individually activated and deactivated from the warning light menu.
