How to utilize the Haltech Nexus VCU:
In a nutshell the Nexus R3 allows you to configure ALL engine functions just like you would with a Haltech Elite ECU but the PDM function allows you to also configure power to accessories like fuel pumps, cooling fans, brake lights and more. This Power Distribution Module function provides even more reliability and safety functionality to your engine.
- 8 amp outputs are perfect for low load lights such as brake lights and hazards, pumps, fans and other accessories with an average draw of 8amps or less.
- 25 amp outputs are perfect for big electric fans (such as SPAL radiator fans), Fuel pumps and auxiliary water pumps with average amperage draw below 25amps
- 2x HBO outputs can be used to control electric motors, either 2 motors 1 direction or 1 motor 2 directions.
- Analog inputs perfect for analog signals from ECU or other sensors
- 1x CANbus This is the communications protocol connections and allows you to link your nexus r3 to any CANbus device from Haltech.
- Combine with Haltech CANbus key pad for ultimate control of all functions and outputs
