MoTeC PDM30

MoTeC’s 30 output Power Distribution Module (PDM30) is designed to provide electronically switched power to the various electrical systems in the vehicle such as motors, lights and solenoids and electronic devices such as ECUs and data acquisition systems.

The module replaces conventional relays, fuses, and circuit breakers, simplifying wiring and reducing weight while increasing reliability.

*MoTeC CAN Keypads and Adaptors are required for this product at an additional cost

Features

  • Each output is over-current, short circuit and thermal overload protected
  • Outputs programmable in 1 A steps
  • Outputs controllable via a combination of switch inputs, CAN messages and logic functions
  • Switch inputs ranging from 0 to 51 V, resolution 0.2 V
  • Performing up to 200 logic operations using operators like Flash, Pulse, Set/Reset, Hysteresis, Toggle, And, Or, Less than, Greater than, Not equal to, Equal to, True, False etc.
  • Performing functions such as flashing indicator lights and controlling thermo-fan and fuel pump
  • Using logic functions to selectively turn off systems during low battery voltage or engine starting, reducing the drain on the battery
  • Providing full diagnostic information, including output currents and voltages, input voltages and error status
  • Transmitting diagnostic information via CAN to a display or data logging device or monitoring directly on a PC
