Your favorite motorcycle gadget/gizmo
Rowe Electronics PDM60 on the Ural. This is a programmable power distribution module that has six individual circuits totaling 60 amps. On each circuit you can set the maximum current, startup delay or shutdown delay. I use it with the startup delay to control accessories such as the heated grips and gear outlet. These have a 15 sec delay to allow the engine to start before they can draw power from the bike. The GPS outlet has a shutdown delay of a couple of minutes after the bike is shut off in case I want to enter the next destination. Installation of the PDM60 was very straightforward and it eliminated the rats nest of inline fuses for the accessories. The only hassle is that to change any of the settings you need to use a Windows only application. Fortunately there is little need to change things once it's been set up. After a circuit is tripped, shutting down resets the circuit.
A very cool gadget/gizmo...
