PDU-16

The PDU-16 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 32 logic inputs and 16 power outputs with validation and debounce settings. RS232 and CAN provide communication to external displays and data loggers.

The PDU-16 sets an extremely high level of 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.

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