PDM60 Power Distribution Module, 6 Channel, 60 Amp
Old methods of power distribution have gone the way of the floppy disk; it’s outdated technology. With the PDM60, there’s no more blown fuses, tangled wiring, overloaded circuits, CANbus related power interruptions, confusion or frustration. The PDM60 is fully user programmable via the PDM60 dashboard software (set circuit triggering/switching methods, delay circuit activation/deactivation, and individual circuit amperage levels)
Six power circuits, and 60 Amps of power handling capability; enough to handle all of your gadgets and accessories.
With the PDM60 installed, adding or removing aftermarket electrical devices and electronics is a breeze. It eliminates the need to check or replace fuses. It eliminates the need to install relays to power higher amperage applications like driving lights, heated clothing, Stebel horns, etc. It completely eliminates any potential for current draw related problems commonly associated with CANbus style electrical systems.
Plain and simple, with the PDM60, your vehicle will be better equipped, and better protected.
Why You Need A PDM60
- Easy – Easy to configure, easy to install, and easy to own.
- Rock Solid – Tested for over 1,000,000 (Yes… One Million) cycles, under a full 60 amp load, and still running strong!
- Completely Sealed – Fully encapsulated in an industrial grade, hi-temp potting material to make it fully water, weather, and dustproof from even the harshest of environments.
- Clean – The compact size, combined with the easy one wire outputs, allows you to install and wire all your accessories without having the finished product looking like a birds nest. Simple and clean always makes your wiring projects better.
- Customizable – The easy to use dashboard allows everyone to set up the PDM60 exactly how they want it for their accessories and their vehicle of choice. Down the road if things change, or you add more accessories, all you have to do is reprogram it to your liking and you are off and riding again.
- CAN bus Friendly – If you have a CAN type electrical system on your vehicle, no fear! The PDM60 is completely CAN bus friendly. The very low amperage required by the trigger wires won’t cause a system error. The PDM60 is not CAN bus controlled and does not communicate in any way with the CAN bus system.
- Customer Satisfaction – Current PDM60 Owners are our best source of real feedback, and we have received great feedback on these units. We receive calls every day from people who have seen the PDM60 in action and want to know where they can get one. Who says you have to settle for messy wiring and unfriendly fuse block? We don’t. We say EVOLVE with the PDM60 and enjoy all of those wanted accessories with peace of mind, knowing they are protected.
The PDM60 is the answer to a problem created by technology but has grown in function and scope to appeal to many different markets with many different needs. In late 2006 motorcycle manufacturers were beginning to release serial data buss or CANbus electrical systems on larger models. This move accomplished several things; first and foremost it allowed the use of system computers on the motorcycle and with that came electronic engine controls and diagnostics. The CANbus requires less wire, thus weighs less and reduces wire count for reliability. CANbus is solid-state, has the ability to sense current and makes conventional fuses and/or circuit breakers un-necessary, also saving cost and weight. The consumers of these machines quickly realized that the wonder of a solid-state “fuseless” motorcycle quickly turned to frustration when attempting to accessorize. Many learned that plugging in high current draw accessories, such as heated clothing caused the system to shut down the respective circuit as the system was sensing excessive draw. The lack of familiarity with the new systems, coupled with odd wiring and current limiting circuits became a serious problem for these consumers. There had been accessory fuse blocks available for some time and the consumers quickly turned to these devices with less than favorable results. The products were large in size and not sealed. Most contained printed circuit boards so corrosion was an ever-present problem. Fuses would blow with no indication of the cause and the user was required to carry spare fuses at all times. Enter the PDM60: REI began working on a concept for a “power distribution module” in late 2006. The initial product was extremely crude by today’s product standards but gave us a platform to work with. Through trial and error, listening to potential customers and carefully engineering the circuits we were able to create the current PDM60 product. The PDM60 has set a benchmark in the market, even created a new market segment in circuit protection. It has proven ultra-reliable and easily customizable to the user's individual needs, all in a very discrete package. Today the PDM60 enjoys markets in Motorcycles, Motorsports, Marine, Industrial, and Agricultural applications.
