Wiring Party

These past few weeks I've been assigned to rewire the breakout box. Before it was a colossal mess but it did what it was supposed to, it got the car rolling.

This time I designed a much more compact wiring box that also incorporates the relay box and other small circuitry. It has one 0.5" cable that goes from the System Control Unit to the breakout box and it does everything else from there. It uses a d-subminiature as an input with two db-25 and two db-9 outputs. It is completely customizable to allow additional ouputs. It has a large 60 signal breakout board that centralizes all the signals that are going to the drivetrain. All of this is done in an enclosure about the size of just the original relay box.
