CARTEK POWER DISTRIBUTION MODULES

 Designed to replace the functions of fuses, circuit breakers and relays in one small, fully electronics unit

Power Distribution Modules

INTRODUCTION

Motorsport Power Distribution Modules

This Power Distribution Module is ideal for race cars and motorcycles which have minimal onboard electrical circuits but still require rugged and reliable protection and control.

Simple connections and no configuration procedures makes this system very easy use and quick to install.

The 4 x 10 amp outputs can be used to control power to various devices such as ECUs, instrumentation, lighting, starter solenoid, radiator fan, etc.

Channels will automatically shut down if a short circuit or over-current is detected – LED Status indication on the PDM and Cartek Switch Panels makes fault finding simple.

DIRECT REPLACEMENT

Power Distribution Modules Race car

The Cartek Power Distribution Module Kit is a direct replacement for 4 x 10amp Fuses, 4 Relays and 4 Switches. This unit therefore reduces all the wiring in between the Fuses, Relays and Switches as well as simplifying the installation.

HOW IT WORKS

When mounting the PDM, electrical contact must be made between the vehicle’s chassis/earth and the metal case of the PDM at its mounting points. 12v Power Input is supplied to the PDM via the M6 electrical stud. Power Output connections are made using 6.3mm spade terminals.

Each channel is turned ON by connecting the corresponding channel signal wire to chassis/earth. Connection can be made using dashboard switches, oil pressure switches, thermo-switches, etc. When a Cartek Switch Panel (pushbutton switches with integrated LED) is used then the LED will display the channel status:

   No LED   = Channel OFF

   LED on    = Channel ON

   Flashing  = ERROR

When short-circuit or over current is detected, the PDM will shut down that channel and the corresponding LED will begin to flash. To reset the error, switch the channel OFF then ON again.

DEDICATED LIGHTS MODULE

Cartek have now produced a dedicated Lights Module for kit cars and Rally Cars that use additional spot lights. The switch panel enables Low beam, High beam, and an extra switch to flash the lights. The Low and High beam channels both go up to a current rating of 20 Amps each.
