PDM32/PDM08
Much More than a
Power Distribution Module
  PDM32 and PDM08 Power Distribution Modules are designed to distribute power to multiple circuits on your vehicle, easily replacing traditional fuse and relay systems.
PDM32/PDM08 KIT
Our PDMs, housed in an anodized billet aluminum case, are designed to handle the rigors of motorsport and include a complete professional data logger and internal dash controller.
An AiM PDM at the center of vehicle electronics will greatly simplify your wiring harness and electronics installation while providing much more control.
PDM 32 and PDM08 offer also some interesting features, like:
 
ECU connection, for getting data from your ECU
Datalogging, for avoiding adding another logger to your car
GPS Module, for having automatic lap times and track positions
 
Dash controller, for easily managing a 6” or 10” dash
9 axis EMU platform
Mirror camera, for easily getting a back view while you drive your car in reverse in the paddock
 
The PDM Kit includes:
New INTEGRATED Power Distribution Module
+ 4 gigabytes Datalogger
+ Dash controller
Dash 6 or 10
GPS Module for automatic Lap Time and track position
In two different proposals:
PDM32 with 28 High Side Outputs and 4 Half Bridge Outputs
PDM08 with 08 High Side Outputs
Power Outputs
The PDMs offer four different Power Outputs Levels:
PDM32
PDM08
High Power: Continuous current 35A
Medium Power: Continuous current 20A
Low Power: Continuous current 10A
Half Bridge:
Total continuous max current

Each output provides status feedback for open circuit, short circuit, high temperature, over current, under voltage and over voltage. Inrush current, number of fault retries and the time between retries are all definable.
All the outputs may be configurable as PWM and allow soft start/stop.
For every output, a multicolor LED shows the status:

Enabled/disabled
Activated or not
Fault
An elegant visual interface allows flexible and powerful configuration for every power output.
Special Functions
Some "black boxes" are available for simplifying the configuration.
For example, the Wiper may be managed by the LIN connection or using the Half Bridges.
In this case, you may take advantage by a virtual object like the following one:

Analog inputs   Digital inputs
If configured as Analog inputs, it is possible to activate an internal 2K Ohm resistor, for connecting most of the sensors directly. If configured as Digital Inputs, it is possible to activate a 10K Ohm Pull Up or a 10K Ohm Pull Down.
Dash   Mirror Camera
Both the PDM08 and PDM32 support the new 6” and 10” TFT displays. Both fully configurable with Race Studio 3.
PDM32 features two analog camera inputs that allow you to swap your display into a mirror camera with the press of a button or through configurable event logic-reverse gear most commonly.
 
Data Management
The PDMs receive, use and record data from:
ECU: more than 1,000 protocols available
Digital/Analog inputs
Internal 9 axis EMU
GPS: position and Lap Time
Expansions
Pushbuttons, from RIO02 Module or from any commercial CAN keypad, thanks to the simple configurability of the CAN protocols
All the currents and status
of all the power outputs
Other user defined math channels
GPS
PDMs come with 4,000 tracks
in their database and automatically
select the one you are driving on,
in order to calculate Lap Time
when you pass the start/finish
line.
Data Logger
An internal datalogger is available, capable of recording all the analog inputs, digital inputs, ECU channels, GPS values, Currents, status of all the Power Outputs. Here an example of what the recorded data may show, during engine cranking.
In red, the ignition pushbutton
In blue, the battery voltage drop
In purple, the current absorbed by the solenoid
In dark green, the current absorbed by the fuel pump
In green, RPM Value
