PDM60 - Power Distribution Questions
 
Hello All,
Just wanted to touch base. I've seen a lot of questions an inquiries regarding the PDM60 Power Distribution Module. I work for Rowe Electronics, the company that builds it. I'm a motorcycle enthusiast myself, as is the owner of the company.
Anyway, we're getting a lot of great feed back on the product, and the units in the field are performing great. If any of you have any questions on spec, or capability, or availability, you can shoot me an e-mail and I'll give you all the info you need. We currently have a few key distributors of the product, some of which have our dashboard software for custom programming the circuit ratings, trigger behavior, time delays, etc. -- The units are rock solid. I've submerged PDM60 units in buckets of water with 45+ Amps of power piping through them, I've intentionally shorted circuits, left high amperage running through them for days and days, and they just keep right on working.
If you have any questions at all, just shoot me an e-mail or check out our web site for more info.
www.rowe-electronics.com.

Thanks,
Blake

Warranty?
 
What is the warranty? Sealed, water tight, up to 60 amps total and circuit indicator lights built in. You've moved the bar up a rung on power blocks. What about heat dissipation?

Programming
 
Looks like a good start to a neat product!

Speaking as someone that is rather intimate with electronics, if you have dashboard programming software to adjust the function and operation of the unit. I would want access to that as an owner. I'm not a fan of taking the beast in to a tech just to change how long it takes my GPS to shut down after I turn off the bike.

Are you planning on providing that as well?

I think this might be in the wrong forum.

It's listed in the FAQ at the website - $149. Unfortunately, what's not listed is how to actually get one, other than e-mailing them... My V-Star 1300 is VERY cramped for room to add stuff, so replacing my current fuse block with something the size of a CoffeeMate packet sounds wonderful.

RocketMoto around 149

I think being waterproof is a key feature and size is sweet.

CoffeeMate packet? Way too big - these are the size of a Chiclet.... Yeah, right. :rofl

Seriously, though. We have the PDM60's in stock, ready to ship, along with our accessory wiring kit that'll simplify your install. Best of all... your awesome ADV Discount applies to your online purchase. PM us for your code.

The PDM60 is one helluva product, and we think these guys have hit the sweet spot for just the right sort of power distribution that ADV'ers have been looking for.

There is Dashboard software, but it also requires a hardware interface, so it's not really practical for an end-user on account of the cost involved. We can program these up for you if the factory programming isn't just right for your needs.

That's a real shame, because needs evolve and change. A real strength to this unit could have been a mini USB port to interface with a PC for owner configuration at will (while still in the bike).

Hopefully, that's in the near future...

oh god.... I wish I saw this first before I bought Fuzeblock 2 weeks ago... this sounds like a sweet product. possibly exactly what I'm looking for.

James:

Agreed. I have put in the suggestion and I would hope this will make it into a future version, as well.

I will email you to get your specifics so that I can program yours. Thanks for the repeat business!
