no more fuses, no more hassle This is the hassle-free answer to finicky CAN-bus bikes where you need extra power circuits, but don't want to annoy the computer. Everything works, nothing blows up. Works like your refrigerator works;; it's there, it does what its supposed to. September 15, 2014
Fantastic Product I have a 2005 Kawasaki Concours and had several electronics added of the years and decided to add Satilite Radio, iPod and a new GPS. I was looking for something to help organize and control all of these devices. The PDM60 accomplished this and made everything neat and tidy. If you need finite control and are looking for a single source for connecting your electronics this device is the way to go. August 18, 2014
Weatherproof and sealed The major things that attracted me to this device were that it was weatherproof and that I could hook up additional electronics without having to tap into other wires for power. The PDM60 allows me to now have a circuit with where no additional relays are needed and fuses, when blown, that just need a restart of the bike to fix. The LED lamps are helpful too when troubleshooting a faulty circuit. It was a little pricey but worth it in my opinion. July 28, 2014
Works as well as it claims Pros: Easy connection to the bike. fairly compact design. software for setup of device is easy to use. A lot of range of options for connected devices, from amount of amps to how it comes on and how it's turned off (bike on and off) extra long cables for good wire management. cons: If you have a battery tender, it still needs to be plugged directly into the battery, can't plug it into plug connected to this device. Other than that 1 con, I love this device. Makes it much easier to manage all my extra add-ons on my bike without the need for making sure I have backup fuses in case something happens and one blows. I haven't made use of adding an extra on/off toggle switch to the device yet for controlling some add-ons that don't need to be powered all the time when the bike is on. but it's on the to-do list. :) July 23, 2014
Solved my problem! Installed the Rowe Electronics PDM60 Power Distribution Module on my 2012 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 evo SP. I had enough accessories installed that my ducati was slow to cycle through the control panel lights and the engine light would sometimes stay on. The PDM60 Power Distribution solved those problems! Now I'm using 29 amps for accessories and have 31 amps available for other fun stuff. I highly recommend this produce! July 23, 2014
EXCELLENT PRODUCT* * Highly recommend for anyone running auxiliary equipment Purchased the Rowe PDM60 to replace an older, somewhat problematic CamBus on a 2010 BMW R1200 GSA, and I couldn't be happier. The PDM60 was easy to install, and allows me to run all of my auxiliary devices without any problems. I cant say anything about the customer service because I haven't had to contact them. I would buy this again, and have / will continue to recommend it to anyone who run anything from additional lights to GPS, heated seats or a heated riding gear. Definitely worth the money !!!

Best PDM out there I've had a couple Power Distribution Modules on several bikes and this is by far the best of them. Completely sealed, programable to several degrees/uses, 6 sepreate and distinct circuits, no fuses to mess with, compact, etc... It is however, the most expensive model. If I had 2 very small improvements for future models I'd ask for a flat bottom so you could secure it with industrial double stick tape. Currentll your only mounting option is to screw it down. Additionally, it doesnt come with any mounting hardware. Maybe if there was a flat bottom base piece that would fix things. June 27, 2014
Waterproof! Have not installed it as of yet. But not having to worry about riding in the rain is what sold me on it. That and you can program it with your computer to change amperage. Plus, NO fuses to blow! April 28, 2014

Douglas K: the unit is sealed within the USB and I filled it with dielectric grease, protected in my fairing and not directly exposed..... Jun 16, 2014

Robert C: There is the normal USB plug on the one end of the cable that plugs into the notebook, the other end of the cable has 6 exposed spikes that plug into the back of the PDM60. The instructions state to orient the spikes a certain way before you can program the PDM60. The back of the PDM where the spike end plugs into does not have a protective cap but the instructions state the PDM is waterproof. Insert the spike ends into the connector on the back of the PDM.

Even though I installed this unit a few months ago, I just programed it today to change how long it takes to activate the circuit. I put driving lights on the front forks and when I would go from high beam to low, the driving light circuit would take 7 seconds (pre-programmed on the PDM60) to bring the driving lights back on. I was able to program it to activate the circuit in 3 seconds. I have also used the PDM to add 2 new 15 amp powerlet sockets. Using the PDM has made it easier to wire up all the circuits without having a CANBUS issue or a rats nest of wires. I would buy this item again if needed.

Francis B D: 1. I mount mine under the seat close to the battery but were ever you can find room to mount it is fine its water proof.
2. You should have gotten a short black wire with two female ends on it that is to be hooked on the ground side of the battery (-). all the returning grounds coming from accessories hook to it and there a black rubber boot that is used to insulate the exposed wire.
3. The thin Black wire is used for an off/on switch. (toggle switch. other wise it doesn't have to be hooked.
4. The Gray wire marked trigger wire: I suggest hooking it to the positive wire going to your tail light or any other that powers up when the ignition is turned on . This will power up the PMD60 when you turn on the ignition. It comes programed to delay powering PDM60 for 7 seconds after the ignition is turned on.
5. The large RED wire goes to the Positive side of the battery.
6. You have 6 circuits coming off the PDM60 and each wire will be considered the Positive wire. The returning Negative (-) Black wire goes to the short Black wire that you hooked to the - side of the battery.
7. Any wires that are not used you can Deactivate with the computer program that is on their ..rowe-eletronics
Hope this helps if you have anymore questions just me another text.

JAMES D: The blue is a ground for the trigger. The black is the main ground for the PDM. What you should do is take the thick black cable and up it to the negative on the battery. This will be your ground buss and then add the black and blue cable to it and all other grounds. Make sure you make all the other curicuits inactive before tucking them away. Any other questions let me know. Feb 26, 2014

Douglas K: I purchased gear and had it sent to Australia as having a new bike shipped up to me in Mongolia for this season, will mount the PDM when it arrives to run some lights, gps etc. The website if you google Rowe Electronics will give you a link for the PDM60 and has good information as shifted from the actual Rowe Electronics website - cheers Mar 3, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas L: I haven't installed the unit yet (still working on a professional looking bracket), but just looking at the USB connection to the actual unit it appears to be waterproof. I would have to take the manufacturers word on it.

The USB cable is the normal USB2 'A' connector on the PC end, and what looks like a proprietary male 6-pin 1/10inch spacing inline pin plug connector on the other end.

The corresponding 6-pin inline jack on the back of the PDM60 appears to be packed with dielectric grease. That looks sufficient to keep out any moisture that might collect on the back side. If you mount the PDM60 flush to some surface I would say it would resist water short of submersion or a prolonged power wash.

The wires exiting the unit look well sealed, too.

Tina-Kevin M: The USB connection has Dielectric grease in it. Make sure it still does when you remove the USB Cable. If not add some more to it. Unit is great. Disconnect positive from battery to program. It will not program otherwise. Great tech support. Jul 14, 2014
