VeeCAN 500 

This five-inch, high-resolution color display wrapped in a rugged, environmentally-sealed enclosure,  delivering high-performance graphics and video capabilities. Features 2 CAN channels, one ethernet, and one video input. Able to act as a low-cost, all-in-one display and controller solution.

VeeCAN 128 

Electrically and environmentally rugged, ideal for delivering tough, flexible instrumentation in harsh environments. Features a high-resolution LCD Display, allowing it to act as a reader and/or data logger for monitoring your system’s parameters. Includes 9 inputs, 4 outputs, and 2 CAN 2.0B communication channels.

GCM 112

With its 5 CAN buses, 3 LIN Masters, 2 ethernet channels, and variety of configurable discrete inputs and outputs, this powerful GCM is ideal for autonomous drive-by-wire, electric-hybrid, and intelligent machine control applications. Its CPU is a high-performance, multi-core architecture with a companion safety power system basis chip able to support the highest level of functional safety (ASIL-D).

GCM 48

This rugged, low-cost controller module features 6 CAN buses, 3 LIN Masters with 1 LIN bus capable of LIN Slave programming, and configurable discrete inputs and outputs. Contact [email protected] to pre-order. 

Bosch Electronic Throttle Body Controller

Designed to control the fresh air of spark-ignition engines in combination with an electronic throttle control system, this controller is ideal for flex-fuel ETB applications. CNG and LPG are permissible if injected in the airflow after the throttle body. 

Continental/Vitesco Fuel Injectors

With its ability to function at high fuel pressures, these injectors are ideal for enhancing engine performance and running quality through an optimized spray pattern. Available in a variety of multi-orifice tips for improved mixture preparation and atomization with lower BSFC and better idle quality than many other injectors. 

Mitsubishi AC Compressor

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Automotive Thermal Systems group (MCC) offers the EWH40Dx AC Compressor to compress low temperature/pressure gaseous refrigerant to a higher temperature/pressure state and circulate it through the refrigerant subsystem. This refrigerant subsystem can aid with passenger cabin comfort cooling or for cooling of energy storage components within the drivetrain. Designed for ~400v systems.

Mitsubishi PTC Heater

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Automotive Thermal Systems group (MCC) offers the EWH40Dx heater is off-the-shelf no additional customer funded tooling is required, with engineering design and development (ED&D) available free of charge. The high-quality  EWH40Dx heater is reliable, trusted by vehicles have been sold all around tyhe world. Designed for ~400v systems.

High Current H-Bridge

This solid-state DC load reversing contactor is wired in an H-Bridge configuration, rated for up to 30A at 24VDC. The H-Bridge provides an efficient way to reverse polarity on a variety of DC loads, including solenoids, motors, brake/clutch assemblies, etc.

Pedal Emulators

New Eagle’s PWM to Analog Converter converts three separate channels of PWM signals to proportional 0-5V analog signals, which is especially useful when paired with control modules with PWM outputs, but no 0-5V analog outputs.
