Scosche M8RIX – Touch Screen Energy Management System

Installing electrical accessories on a vehicle, such as exterior lighting systems, under lights, or even locking differentials usually requires you to install some wiring. Not only does this process tend to be complicated, but it can also be quite annoying to set up, especially when trying to install multiple electrical devices in the same vehicle. With the Scosche M8RIX, you can easily install many electrical devices in your vehicle in a simple and straightforward way.

The Scosche M8RIX is a power distribution management system used to control up to 8 power accessories installed in any vehicle, which is rated to have an IPX7 waterproof rating, with 8 MOSFET power outputs including 2 30A sockets, 2 15A sockets and 4 10A sockets. 130 Amps of combined power output, plus a 3.5-inch programmable low-light LCD touch control panel that easily mounts to your vehicle’s dashboard and features eight channels, for which users can customize the visual appearance of buttons of touch control for each of them channels by choosing from 57 different icons, 7 different icon colors and 16 different background colors.

Designed for easier installation and control of all power accessories installed in any type of vehicle, including cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, RVs, ATVs, tractors or even boats, this power distribution management system provides a sophisticated and efficient system. solution for installing these accessories in a clean and simple way.

Best of all, it even allows chaining up to three units together to control up to 24 power outputs at once.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the Scosche M8RIX and see exactly how this power delivery management system is designed to work.

DESIGN AND BASE SPECS

Starting with the dimensions of the main device, the Scosche M8RIX power distribution module comes in quite compact, measuring exactly 10 inches long, 5.8 inches wide and 2 inches high (not counting its connectors), so it won’t take up much space inside your vehicle’s engine bay (or you can mount it under your seat if you want).

The system’s 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen control panel also comes in a very compact size, measuring just 3.82 inches long, 2.87 inches wide and 1.18 inches tall, and features a design minimalistic and super modern, while also having a durable and splash-resistant construction. . throughout its hard plastic exterior.

POWER SPECS AND CONNECTION PORTS

For its power source, the Scosche M8RIX dedicated power distribution module is connected directly to your vehicle’s battery, from which it draws electricity.

Note that this power distribution management system automatically turns on when your vehicle is started.

The system’s power distribution module also has a durable, high-quality construction, as it is constructed entirely of heavy-duty aluminum, rated to withstand temperatures from 221°F to -40°F (105 °C to -40°C) and is also rated to have an IPX7 waterproof rating, thus withstanding submersion up to 3.28 feet. (1 m) depth for a maximum of 30 minutes.

As such, you can install it not only on standard vehicles such as cars, trucks, SUVs, vans, and RVs, but also on vehicles that commonly come into contact with water, such as tractors (which sometimes operate in heavy rain or even light snow conditions), as well as ATVs, boats and other types of vehicles.

Regarding its power input ports, the system power distribution module uses both a negative battery connector and a positive battery connector.

Integrated between its power input ports, there are a total of three data input ports (x3) used to connect the Scosche M8RIX power distribution module directly to the dedicated 3.5 inch LCD touch control panel via an included 10 ft. data cable (note that 2 additional 10 ft. data cables are also provided).

When it comes to its power output options, this power distribution management system features a total of eight (x8) MOSFET power outputs that boast a combined power output rating of 130 Amps. These power output ports include two (x2) 30A outputs, two (x2) 15A outputs and four (x4) 10A outputs.

Know that the output wires from the system’s power distribution module include power and ground for each channel and can ultimately be combined to provide one or more power-hungry electric vehicle accessories with twice the power output.

What’s more is that since it has 3 data input ports, users can connect up to three power modules together, which will allow them to control up to 24 power outputs and accessories. respectively connected to the electric power of the vehicle at once.

When you do this, the Scosche M8RIX can be used with two separate control panels to control all those individual power outputs from two different places in your vehicle.

INTERFACE / CONTROL PANEL

Switching to the system’s dedicated user interface, which means a 3.5-inch programmable LCD touchscreen control panel.

The system’s 3.5″ LCD touchscreen control panel includes two standard mounting options via the included mounting bracket, which places it on your vehicle’s windshield or alternatively, on your vehicle’s dashboard.

Additionally, it also supports other types of mounting options, including the AMPS model mounting option, compatibility with a ¼ – 20” mounting bracket, compatibility with Scosche’s proprietary MagicMount, and compatibility with a standard flow mount.

There are a total of eight (x8) channels displayed on the system’s 3.5″ LCD touch screen control panel, for which each of these channels represents each of the 8 power MOSFET outputs from the power distribution module of system. These 8 channels can be programmed for “Groups” to allow several channels to be switched on or off all at the same time, or alternatively, programmed by time, along with the option to create “Channel Dependencies “individual.

The system’s 3.5″ LCD touchscreen control also boasts an adjustable dimming input function, so any exterior vehicle lighting system connected to the system’s power outputs can be dimmed from 100% to 0% .

Finally, and as previously mentioned, users can also customize the visual appearance of the touch control buttons for each of the channels displayed on the system’s 3.5-inch LCD touch control panel with the option to choose from 57 icons different colors, 7 different icon colors and 16 different background colors.

Best of all, the system’s 3.5-inch LCD touch screen control also displays special on-screen status indicator alerts in case of various anomalies, including overcurrent, open circuit, short circuit, thermal overload and low voltage alarm indicator.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX?

Inside their package, users will find: the Scosche M8RIX 130A power distribution module, along with a dedicated system control panel with a 3.5-inch LCD touch screen, along with a high-current power cable OFC 4 ft. ANL fuse holder, ring terminals and nylon wire) and a 4 ft OFC ground cable. EFX (with pre-attached ring terminals and nylon wire), with color-coded OFC 10 and 14-foot output wire, a 10-ft data cable (to connect the system’s power module to its control panel), and a lighting and lighting 10 ft. cable, plus additional ring terminals and heat shrink (for custom wire length applications).
