The 8-channel unit provides CAN-directed, switched power to the various systems by receiving commands directly from an Infinity Series 3, Series 5 or Series 7 ECU, eliminating the need to create complicated logic programming in the PDU.

The AEM EV PDU-8 is an affordable solution for controlling switched devices like fans and fuel pumps.
