The APD Power Distribution Boards (PDBs) are designed for high voltage and high current applications. They consist of 8 layers of heavy copper to sustain maximum current demand whilst dissipating minimal heat.


The APD PDB comes in 2 variants: 8S 360A, 14S 500A

    Up to 1000 Amp burst current
      PDB360[X] - 720A burst
      PDB500[X] - 1000A burst
    Up to 14S capable
    Onboard 5V and 12V switching regulators
    Overcurrent and short circuit protection on both 5V and 12V regulators
    Twin battery input
    Thermal relief on all solder tabs to allow for easier soldering
    PCB rated for 180°C continuous
    8-Layer PCB for minimal track resistance
    ISOLA 185HR dielectric glass fibre for maximum thermal performance
