Australian motorsport electronics specialist Motec has long been known for its datalogging systems and engine control units. However, recognizing the direction of travel of the motorsport industry toward electric and hybrid powertrains, it is now catering for these new technologies.

The company has released a video detailing some of its developments in this area, giving an insight into the work underway at its research center. Key to these efforts is its M1 Integration Tool, developed for its M1 series ECUs, which enables engineers to develop powertrain control systems using MATLAB and Simulink, with M1 introducing Motec blocks into the Simulink model library.

The company also offers an array of low-voltage power distribution modules and is even able to source and develop complete EV drivetrains for customers, including battery supply.
