Cartek Power Distribution Module(Unit & Cable Only)
The 4 channel Power Distribution Module from CARTEK has been designed to replace the functions of fuses, circuit breakers and relays in one small, fully electronic unit.
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. Outputs can be used to control power to various devices such as ECUs, instrumentation, lighting, starter solenoid, radiator fan, etc. Visual over-current and short-circuit indication makes fault finding simple.

- 4 x 10 Amp Channels
- Totally sealed against water and dirt
- Completely resistant to shock and vibration
- Each channel incorporates over-current protection
- Channels can be controlled by switch or signal inputs
- Dual-coloured status LED for each channel
- Very small and weighs just 80g
- Manufactured in UK using high quality components
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 OFFLED on = Channel ONFlashing = ERRORWhen 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.
