PDUx3

The PDUx3 represents the latest advancements in microprocessor controlled power distribution systems. The PDUx range offers advanced features such as the ability to sleep and wake via CAN bus messaging or by using hardware pins including the ability to wake/sleep upon the triggering of certain user-specified sensor inputs. The PDUx3 comes equipped with 34 programmable outputs in total, including 10 extremely capable multifunction outputs which can be defined by the user to operate in either discreet high-side or low-side switching, low-side PWM, Half or Full bridge operation. These flexible outputs, as well as the PDU's 16 input channels and additional 4 lowside PWMs, can be used to augment the I/O compliment of any Life Racing ECU product connected using the powerful "slave-link" feature.
