PDU-10

The PDU-10 is to replace the use of a conventional relay box. It provides multi channel solid state logic driven processing, which is fully software configurable using our PDU cal tool. Features include 10 inputs and 10 power outputs with validation and debounce settings. CAN provides communication to external displays and data loggers.

The PDU-10 sets the benchmark for entry level precision power management control. The micro processor controlled unit incorporates power switching, monitoring and fusing increasing flexibility, repeatability and reliability. This powerful unit allows advanced control algorithms but yet easy to calibrate for the end user. The 10 inputs and 10 outputs are calibrated using the unique fully schematic based software package ‘PDUSetup’. Flash, latch and logic components can be used in any combination and simulated before programming.

All of this hardware is packaged within a lightweight CNC billet aluminium case. Designed to be installed in harsh motorsport environments.
