Dual voltage electrical systems solve many power requirement problems in today's trucks, buses and motor coaches, but like any specialized technology, dual voltage establishes its own rules.
Power distribution modules, or PDMs, have been called by many different names: Power distribution centers or units, electrical centers, and even electrical boxes. In any case, it boils down to this: PDMs are circuits in an enclosure, distributing power from a central power source to many smaller circuits around a vehicle or equipment.
Relays, solenoids, and contactors are all switches—whether electro-mechanical or solid state—but there are critical differences that make each suitable for different applications. In this article, we will explain how each of these devices work and discuss some key selection considerations.
The battery cable is among the most important components in a battery management system. High quality battery cables will help ensure you have power and avoid battery drain—but only if they are properly sized, installed and maintained.
There are two things you must absolutely double-check when selecting your battery cables.

Now more than ever, it’s important to keep weapons safe from theft. The Advanced Gun Lock Timer with Lock-Out Protection, a new product from Egis Mobile Electric, raises the bar substantially on gun storage safety in vehicles.
Next-generation power distribution models, called hard-wired boxes, streamline circuit protection and power distribution with features that support easier installation and maintenance as well as protect against premature failure.
Anyone who works with electrical systems has seen their fair share of acronyms related to industry standards, from ABYC to UL/CSA. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most common standards you’re likely to encounter in the Waytek catalog, and why they make a difference for the parts you purchase.
