The ASM170 is a compact yet powerful engine auto-start module. It offers flexibility and features normally found in much larger and more expensive units. Its high density MOLEX plug makes it ideal for panel builders. It can also be easily replaced in the field if problems should arise. With the on-board Manual-Off-Automatic switch, panel wiring is greatly simplified. Its unique design also allows it to draw virtually no current in standby mode, yet be able to auto-start based on a sustained or momentary contact closure.
