DCE INC Power Junction Box approved for competition use in the NASCAR Sprint Cup
30 May 2013
DCE Inc’s Power Junction Box (PJB), part number DCEPJB01, has now been approved by NASCAR R&D in Concord, North Carolina, for competition use in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series.
The PJB is used to distribute power to various electrical circuits used within the EFI system including the engine and fuel pumps. This innovative device is different to similar products currently on the market because there are seven individual circuits in total which each have overcurrent and short circuit protection. This technology ensures that no harm will come to the wiring harnesses connected to the PJB in the event of a circuit overload, either through faulty components or accident damage.
Each output is also linked to a status LED on the face of the box which is used to display whether the circuit is off, on, or in fault condition. As a result, this helps reduce the time which is wasted finding faults on the pit road. The PJB’s internal circuitry does not contain any relays or circuit breakers and is all solid state so there are no moving parts. This in turn increases the reliability and lifespan of the product.
In addition to the increased protection and functionality, the PJB is relatively lightweight and weighs approximately 40% less than alternative products which are currently available.
David Cunliffe, Managing Director of DCE Inc, commented: “Our lightweight Power Junction Boxes have been designed to ensure increased reliability and increased lifespan, and we are confident that our PJBs will provide optimum performance during the NASCAR Sprint Cup series.”
