What used to be achieved with a simple box full of mechanical relays and fuses is no longer possible. The functional and safety requirements of a power distribution centre are growing proportionally with the functionalities of the modern architectural vehicle complexity. Our Smart Switches Control Units, called Body, have been developed to respond to the changing needs and new challenges of the power distribution and It have been given an outstanding cost/performance ratio.
Every outputs have fitted with high accuracy current feedback that enables real time readout of the current consumption per channel. In this way is possible make a reliable replacement of relays and fuses. Body family can be expose up to 16 input channels and 24 power output channels (7 amps per channel). Power outputs can be make a parallel connection increasing the current rated capability. The Body power control units are equipped with two CAN BUS ports for vehicle data interface. All units are automotive grade certified and they suitable for both 12V then 24V electric net vehicle architecture.
Each channel can be drive by discrete INPUT, CAN BUS message or by LAN Remote Link. Last option is real interesting because in this way is possible keep under control the on-board loads and powered them by remote web-based dashboard.
Housing is made in aluminium die cast with elevate protection grade IP6k9k rated and dispose of automotive connectors to deliver the robustness needed. This is a guarantee for long lasting connections without risk of corrosion or glitches – at the same time offering quick connection and simplified installation.
