Azure Dynamics Water Heater - Reverse Engineering

If you find this information useful, please share this page or even donate.

I worked out that the water heaters that were used in the Transit Connect van happen to be the same Mitsubishi unit that are used in the i-MiEV.

The unit is labelled Mitsubishi CKA411A001

Below are the schematics and photos of both.
There are 4 x PTC heaters controlled by 4 x input connections. Presumably these are 12 volt.

There are also 2 temp. sensors. One on the water input and one on the output of the heater block.

This may all be academic as the heater unit weighs a ton and I want something lighter like these MES units from Metric Mind
