Keypad 8/15


For the ultimate in power management, combine the reliability of a PDM with the simplicity and flexibility that a keypad delivers. MoTeC Keypads work specifically with the current range of MoTeC Dashes and PDMs. Keypads are easy to program and feature CAN bus capabilities.

Each switch and its 3 LEDs can be independently programmed. One option is to use the LED illumination to clarify the status of the PDM-assigned device.

LED 1: Power status   LED 2: Re-try power-up   LED 3: Failed power-up attempts

Complete the keypad customisation by applying the desired semi-transparent label to each backlit button.


A MoTeC Keypad will enhance the application and integration of a MoTeC PDM into any vehicle. Specific features include:

  • Compact and lightweight
  • Rugged design for use in extreme environments, sealed to IP67
  • Backlit customised graphical symbols available
  • Real time feedback via LED indicators above each button
  • Simplified wiring, only 4 wires required for multiple buttons
