top notch quality
Finally a way to use 12 volt accessories with a CANBUS bike !
This is what BMW should add to all the bikes with the CANBUS system. You can program it to your likes. It is like having a mini computer controller on board. Beard level 1 in ease if you know 12 V systems. A beard level 2 for someone new to wiring of accessories. Price is within its quality and features. Could not be happier. Thanks RevZilla !

Great Product
Put this on my BMW GS. got tired of having all the accessories going to fuses and not being able to control when they were on. this unit allows it's circuit breakers to completely eliminate fuses (no need to carry spares anymore). it also allows you to program which items are only on when the ignition is on (no more drained battery). takes a bit to install (pay attention) and is a bit pricey, but well worth it. also plan out your circuits and write them down, you'll be glad you did.

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. :)

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.

outstanding PDM
This PDM is just outstanding. Additional auxiliary lights were draining my battery but after installing this PDM, my battery no longer gets drained out. Trust me when I tell you that this item works just as well as other more expensive PDMs. I definitely recommend this item.

Simple, powerful, effective, isolates add-ons from bike electrical
Does what it is suppose to, a fully digital electronic fuse box, re-programmable to suit your needs (though defaults seem fine for me).

Is amazingly small so easy to fit into bike, has plenty of long leads so easy to wire up.

Used for GPS (Nuvi 660), rear red running LEDS, front clearwater Darla's, and two separate outlets for Gerbing heated clothing (later add this fall). Still leaves a free slot and can easily combine the LED running lights if need be.

Love the fact it can delay trigger of a hot lead, so by default there is a second second lead ot let you use full amperage to start the bike, then the accessories go hot.

Also has ability to trigger one or more of the six lines of a switch if you want to power on/off from the unit power source.

About the only critique is the negative power connectors are simply a screw with six provided eyelets. For the quality of the rest of the kit would have expected a nicer negative terminal bus of some sort, but minor quip - especially one setup and done.

Very glad I setup all the more complicated bike electronics on a completely isolated and independent circuit.

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 !!!

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!

Does the PDM60 come with the USB cable to program it via a windows compatible computer or do I have to order that extra?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It does come with the necessary cable. The connection to the unit is unique to this product.
How is the USB connection waterproofed on the unit? That is, I know the PDM60 is waterproof ... what about the USB connection?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They use dielectric grease where the prongs go into the unit. You will need to reapply after use. This is a great unit and easy to use.
Hi I have just bought PDM60 Power Distribution Module, Yesterday I schould mount it. And did not understand why it is two Thin groundcables. ? Shall I mount both of them to the frame/batt- And the short black one with a cap on.. ? where ??
Pål
Pal A on Feb 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
What are the dimentions of the unit?
Mershon G on Feb 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 2"x3"x.8" It's a very small unit.
How is the USB connection waterproofed on the unit? That is, I know the PDM60 is waterproof ... what about the USB connection?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is there any provision for battery charging through the unit or do you have to hook up directly to the battery?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No. There is no provision within the unit for battery charging. I still use a separate connection for battery charging.
How will the PDM60 interact with my Battery Tender/emergency jump leads if they are both attached directly to the battery at the same time?
Brian D on Nov 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: it wont affect it at all.
Has anyone been able to install this under the front seat (in the lowest setting) of a 2016 BMW R1200GS Adventure? I know it's .9" tall, but am curious if anyone can confirm that it will actually fit under there?
Colin S on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I fit mine under the rear seat. Easy to get to. Plenty of room. Works great! 2015 R1200GSA Adventure.
I have connected my PDM and the program on my PC show that I have done it the right way. I have inactivated som of the citcuits but there is still 12V in them... What have I done wrong??
Or is it something wrong with my unit??
Pal A on Mar 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Pal A,

This is a question that is probably best directed to the good folks at Rowe Electronics. They have a great support team that I'm sure can help you out with trouble-shooting.
I have a 2013 KTM 450 XC-F, I want to use for a snow bike application. I want to add on heated grips and a powerful headlight and small tail light and a Vortex Tach/Temp Gauge.
Is the PDM60 all I need or do I need to upgrade Stator as well?
Thks
