We saw a car with this setup at the 2021 25 Hours of Thunderhill Presented by Hawk Performance, and we thought it was trick enough to check them out further.
The keypads work in conjunction with the MicroPDM’s power distribution modules, which allow for high- and low-side outputs from 2.5 amps to .5 amps, respectively.
The keypads are available in 4-, 6-, 8- and 12-button configurations, which when combined with the PDM and the Rapid Enclosure harness and the keypad cable, perform the same functions as motorsport PDMs that cost thousands more. The buttons have lots of different inserts that indicate what the button is for, and include icons for cool suits, lights, fans, etc. If you’re building a hardcore, stripped-down Super Touring or Time Trial car, these components can give you full control of the systems you want on board for less money than was previously possible. Even better, the MicroPDM is configured using the panel itself. There’s no need to connect a laptop.
