Vehicle Control Modules
InPower's Vehicle Control Module (VCM) product line is a rapidly evolving set of tools used to provide solutions for vehicle system applications. All VCM's employ a microprocessor controller coupled with a solid state 12 volt (or 24 volt) 15 amp power switch to provide a completely solid state "smart" relay. By applying different software programs, we can provide a wide range of functionality. Designers of vehicle electrical control systems can utilize VCM's to solve many problems in an affordable and simple manner. VCM's are designed to withstand the environments typically found on trucks, emergency vehicles, buses, coaches, and specialty vehicles. Please see the sidebar for a list of current VCM models.
