VCU for Nissan Leaf, UQM or Coda Motors

The Thunderstruck Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) converts throttle and brake inputs into CAN bus messages that drive an EV motor inverter. It has been designed to work with the Gen1 (2011-12) and Gen2 (2013-20) Nissan Leaf, UQM-Danfoss PowerPhase® HD System, and Coda UQM controllers.
For UQM systems, inverter configuration is required. See Installation and Operation Manual P/N 87510-011, and CANbus Interface Manual P/N 87510-009 from UQM-Danfoss Technologies. No inverter configuration is needed for Leaf inverters.
The Optional Accessory kit completes connections between VCU and controller, throttle, precharge circuit, main contactor, FNR (direction) switch and 12 volt power/ground wires. It includes the precharge resistor with wires attached and the precharge relay, main contactor, throttle pedal and a DPDT FNR switch (these items are also available individually) with prewired connections - component wires have connectors attached, and are labeled for easy assembly.
The Accessory Kit saves considerable time for you at very little more than the price of components. It saves us time on the phone later answering questions about how to wire it up.
