The Power Control MiniModule (PCMM) is a central power distribution for a total measurement system and allows the selective on and offswitching of data loggers, measurement modules and further external devices.

It includes a number of configurable switching inputs such as terminal 15 (ignition) switch voltage from a data logger and an external switching voltage.

In addition, the PCMM buffers the data logger, for example, during startup of an engine and thus enables the bridging of voltage dips below the minimum operating voltage of 5 V DC.
