Here’s a great innovatio0n from Motogadget: the mo.button. If you’re building a custom bike and are designing a wiring harness to minimize wire clutter, then the Motogadget mo.button is what you are looking for.
The Motogadget mo.button uses state of the art bus technology to digitally process signals and transmit them to the mo.unit basic or mo.unit blue over a thin cable.
The electrical components will be switched on or off inside the mo.unit. The tiny 12mm diameter X 25mm in length mo.button can be placed inside the handle bar or any other small space.
This saves space, weight, labour and time. The mo.button is a must have for custom bikes looking for a clean look.
The mo.button is completely moulded in, which makes it water tight and resistant to vibrations.
A) normally, the operating current (e.g. headlight or turn signals) is transmitted directly via the wiring of the handlebar switches. Due to the high currents, cables with large cross-sections have to be routed from the fuse box to the switch and back to the electrical consumer.
The result: big cable bundles. Definitely, a ‘no go’ for custom bikes with restricted space or a concealed electrical system.
B) using the mo.unit without the mo.button, just a thin cable for each switch- or button-controlled feature has to be routed to the mo.Unit. These cables only carry minute control currents. All high loads and currents are switched directly at the mo.unit and transmitted directly to the electrical consumers. This already leads to a significant reduction and simplification of the wiring harness.
C) using the mo.unit basic or mo.unit blue in combination with the tiny mo.button, you will once again reduce the amount of cables that have to be routed! All switches/buttons on the handlebar are connected at the shortest distance possible and concealed inside the handlebar. Consequently, you will have to route only ONE thin cable from the mo.button to the mo.unit. All loads and currents will be switched directly at the mo.unit blue, mo.unit basic or m.Unit V.2 (see explanations above). A layout reduced to the max!
