NMEA-2000 Network Control Devices

Are there any currently available NMEA-2000 certified devices which allow a device connected to a NMEA-2000 network on a vessel to be controlled by another NMEA-2000 device. For example, is there a device which can be connected to a NMEA-2000 network which would allow me to turn on a 12-volt DC circuit by using another NMEA-2000 device connected to the network in another location?

Sorry, but the Maretron devices (whose information pages you gave the URI for) do not, as far as I can tell, contain any mechanism for controlling a device. They simply act like all other MNEA-2000 devices that I have seen, which is to report information. They do not appear to offer any sort of control function. They just provide information about the status or state of some parameter, in this case the magnitude of a voltage or a current. They do not provide for any way to control that voltage or current.
If I have misread the information you pointed to, please forgive me, and please be so kind as to inform us about their control function.
