Had this same discussion over at H.A.M.B. last week. I'm an aerospace engineer, we use multiplex systems like this all the time, and my feeling is that for automotive use this is the answer to the question no one asked. Overly complex, no real benefit in saved copper or connections, and impossible parts availability. Oh, and if you have a problem with a circuit in a conventional wiring system, you can jumper around it or do without it. If one of your ISIS modules goes south, you loose everything and you aren't going to be able to get parts at Pep Boys.

Isn't it interesting that all the car mags made a big splash when this first came out, and it hasn't been heard from since? More complex is NOT better.

For those not familiar this is a multiplexing system with a Master cell (control head) and fused power cells that can located near the loads. The master cell is connected to the controls such as headlight sw, turn signal sw etc. The power cells are hard wired to the lights, horn etc. and require a power feed.

To techy for a hotrod. For me I'm a KISS kind of guy.
Simple is easy so why make hard. JMO
