Actia’s multiplexed solid-state power management system is designed for electrical management in all vehicle applications and can be customized to a customer’s specifications, the company says.
The system, which meets J1455 standards, is designed to eliminate relays, fuses and circuit breakers, increasing vehicle reliability. With this system, both harness complexity and manufacturing testing time can be reduced significantly, providing quick, easy troubleshooting, according to Actia; units can be mounted close to the devices, and loads can be controlled.
The system, which features onboard diagnostics and prognostics capabilities, is capable of providing current trend analysis, open/short circuit detection and programmable inputs and outputs, while decreasing production, warranty and maintenance costs. Actia says the system also can be integrated with a load failure mitigation strategy; for example, in the event a running lamp burns out, the system will turn the headlamp on at 50 percent capacity.
