Powerbox is a power unit that makes fuses and relays unnecessary in your car.
The Powerbox replaces conventional fuses and relays, instead all power is controlled by this device.
Just type in the "fuse" size on each channel, link the input to an output function and you are ready to go.
We have made 2 more features in HP8441 compared with HP8440 it´s the following:
- Output 6 & 14 has a wiper parking function, this means that the wiper motor will be grounded on these pins when both of them are not active, resulting the Wiper motor to stop.
- We have made a Ignition Input, and a fused 0.5A output. It's then possible to put the HP8441 on Sleep mode with a Current consumption of only a few Micro Ampere.
The HP8441 is physically the same as the existing HP8440 except for it´s made with AMP "AMPseal" Connectors. The Maximum current of these connectors is rated to 17A per Pin, we have 5 double-pinned channels, meaning you can load 34A - We have tested the load to be as high as 35A per pin without problem.
The Box has a user-friendly CAN interface, this makes it possible to link to other devices such as a Computer, Switch Panel, Dash board, this feature makes the outputs to be operated automatically. (Example - when you crank the engine the fuel pump starts, when engine is running the power-steering starts automatically.)
CAN Values and status of channels can also be sent out on the CAN system; This could be for logging purposes or for switching on LED's on the switch-panel, sending messages to the Dash, ect...
The Powerbox has also some flash functions, making external relays for indicator unnecessary.
Also keep in mind - HP Electroniks software is free - download it, get their configuration files and try to understand this fantastic unit.
