Performing ECM signal measurement and failure testing without modifying the harness can be difficult and time consuming. ECM breakout boxes are rugged harness inserts designed to make this painful job easy.
Breakout boxes were designed by application developers to assist troubleshooting and failure mode testing activities and are a highly recommended part of every developer's toolkit. The family of breakout boxes covers the entire range of Woodward's MotoHawk Control Solutions modules. The breakout box plugs into the existing harness connectors and ECM, but also provides an extension with measurement points and circuit breaking bars.
Each pin to the ECM can be probed, open circuited, or connected to any other signal. Each breakout box assembly comes with an Expander toolkit of patch cables, shorting bars, and banana jacks.
