The collaboration between FCA Latam and MTA has been active for several years. In particular, in the last four, we have worked closely to bring a new product to the market: the HMPDC, a modular and hybrid power distribution unit mounted on the Fiat Strada, the all-Brazilian pick-up that has experienced a boom in sales exceeding all expectations.
The HMPDC is a scalable solution composed of a pre-fuses box with power busbar and of hard-wired or PCB modules allowing flexible and versatile combinations according to different architectures.
Smaller space available and high temperatures in the engine compartment made it necessary to develop new technologies in order to get benefits in terms of price/cost reduction and fuel efficiency. From this need comes the use of a new family of fuses (Compact fuses developed and homologated by MTA) and electronic integration.
The result is a new PDC smaller than the current ones.
