New Eagle currently offers the following types of controllers:
• Body Control Modules (BCMs)
• Engine Control Modules (ECMs)
• Raptor Control Modules (RCMs)
• General Control Modules (GCMs)
• Hydraulic Control Modules (HCMs)
• Telematics Control Modules (TCM)
The controllers range in pin count, input, output, memory, and processor configuration. Although a controller may have function listed, such as Body Control Module (BCM), it is able to be used in other functions. Typically the controller for a particular application is selected based on hardware capability such as I/O need, processor capability, communication requirements, and voltage operating range. The exception to this rule is engine control, where specialized hardware is required for decoding the CRANK/CAM inputs for engine timing – here an engine control module is required.
Most modules are available in ‘F’ (Flash) or ‘C’ (Calibratible) versions. Flash modules are typically used for production purposes. Calibratible modules are typically for prototyping/development purposes and can be calibrated in real time using Raptor-Cal or another calibration tool.
