How to configure a PDM

PDMs, PDUs, and PMUs.

No matter what you call them, they all do the same job; Managing the power supply to electrical components in your vehicle.

If you're new to PDMs, there's a lot to understand to get yours installed and working to its potential.

You might be able to get a basic function worked out to turn your fuel pump on and off, but this is just scratching the surface of what your PDM is capable of.

You can spend hours fumbling your way around, figuring things out by trial and error. Or you could go through the lackluster setup guide you get with your PDM. 

Or, you could enroll in this course— and learn from start to finish about how a PDM works and gets configured, giving you the skills to set one up exactly how you want it.

In particular, you'll learn how to understand the different types of electrical loads in your car and how to determine the correct current and inrush current settings for each. 

You'll learn how to wire, configure and control a wiper motor properly and how to send and receive sensor data between your PDM, dash or ECU via CAN. These are items even professionals struggle with. 

Then you’ll learn how to harness the real power of a PDM by developing advanced functions such as auto stall recovery, pit limit control, and back up fuel pump control — Once you understand how these functions are developed, your imagination is the only limit to what you can achieve.

It doesn't matter what PDM you use; MoTec, ECU Master, AIM, Syvecs, RacePak, Haltech, or HP Electroniks. In this course, you will learn a 6 step process that you can apply to ANY PDM setup. 

If you're thinking about using a PDM in your next project and want to make sure you select the right one (and get the most out of it), hit Enroll Now.
