Interesting wiring system for cars/hotrods, race cars etc


A friend of mine is having all kinds of wiring issues with his Porsche 914. While I might regret this, I offered to have a look at it once we get the all clear from this virus. While I have found companies that offer rebuild harnesses for his car, I also looked at a Painless kit but they want you to convert to Ford, GM or Mopar connectors. Then I came across a company called "Infinity Box". They have designed a really cool wiring system that uses three modules. A main module that you hook to your existing switches. This module only checks to see if a switch is open or closed. No current goes through your switches so they could potentially last forever. You then have two modules- one in the engine compartement and one in the trunk. A low voltage data line runs from the main module to these two modules. From these two modules is where you'd hook up your headlights, turn signals, brake lights, ignition etc. The nice thing about it is you run shorter lengths of wire plus this system is programmable. You can operate systems from a laptop or smart phone, control the rate of turning on or off a switch etc. There's also a diagnostic screen on the main module. 

There's a video at this link:

While maybe not for a purist, this sytem would be ideal for a guy who puts a lot of miles on his old car and want's a good, reliable electrical system that is easy to troubleshoot.

Looks interesting but not cheap. A good option if you need a wiring harness and they are not available.
