6 Switch Power Control System for Can-Am Maverick X3
XTC Power Products Leads the way in UTV Wiring. Powering multiple accessories has become easier than ever with our Plug and Play PCS (Power Control System) for the Can-Am Maverick X3. Unlike other switch systems available, the Power Control System’s designed with the installer in mind. Every PCS has a vehicle specific power connector and rocker switch harness that fits the factory pre-cut rocker switch positions.
The PCS includes 1 x 30 amp and 3 x 20 amp high current circuits on relays with Diode protection. The design reduces voltage spikes from field collapse, protecting LED lights and other sensitive accessories. There are also 2 x 10 amp direct wire circuits provided for low power accessories like rock lights or whip lights. Additionally included is a fuse block that protects the circuits and comes with an eight gauge power cable and fuses. Most UTV charging systems produce anywhere from 40-70 amps. Because of this, a 50 amp circuit breaker at the battery safely supplies power to the PCS. Installing a 100+ amp high power switch system is not practical in a UTV.
The Power Control Systems Barrier Strip
Pro wiring installers have been using barrier strips in off-road vehicle builds for years. Some good reasons would be aesthetics, along with ease of use when adding new connections and troubleshooting down the road. Each screw point on the barrier strip has a different colored wire that corresponds with the fuse box and switches harness wires. Therefore the 1st rocker switch would be the large 30 amp grey wire, and then so on and so forth.
Can-Am Maverick X3 Switch System Power Harness Configurations
Designed for the Can-Am Maverick X3, the PCS-64-MAV-NS switch harness has three rocker switch positions that mount in the center console between the driver and passenger. Additionally, two rocker switches mount in the center dash and a last switch that can mount next to the steering wheel or center dash. Also, the rocker switches can be installed together in any custom way deemed fit by the installer as well. Moreover, a Molex connector links the switch harness to the main Power Control System.
Modular Power Connection
The PCS-64-MAV-NS has a modular power connector at the fuse box that plugs inline with the vehicles ignition power. Consequently, the lower LED (available on custom rocker switches) will only illuminate when the ignition key is turned on. The upper light only comes on when the rocker switch’s pressed. It should be noted that the wiring system will work with or without the vehicle’s ignition power on. XTC Power Products, made in America and Wired For Fun®!
