Tecomotive „tinyCWA“ ... New Version 2017

The controller for the Pierburg CWA type water pumps


  • Engine speed independent cooling
  • Integrated cooling fan controller
  • No more overheating at engine idle
  • No thermostat necessary
  • Quick and predictive control algorithm
  • Delayed shutdown

An automotive controller for Pierburg’s electric water pumps CWA50 / CWA100 / CWA200 / CWA400
... used by many OEM's such as BMW, Audi, VW, Porsche, Mercedes Benz ...

The Tecomotive “tinyCWA” is able to control all CWA type electric water pumps (eWP) in the appropriate manner.
It is suitable for cars or any other thing where smart cooling is required.

When activated the controller is measuring the current coolant temperature and the rate of increase with the connected
temperature sensor.
With this data it then calculates the appropriate water flow and sends a signal to the pump where the internal pump electronics then set it to the right speed. This way you will always have the right pump speed for any circumstances.

We developed this product with very special attention to quality, operational safety, ease of use and a very nice appearance.

The compact and anodized aluminum case measures only 44x44x12mm. (1.7x1.7x1/2inches)

You can find more precise information about the operation, installation and use in the manual linked below.

The electric water pumps from Pierburg

The Pierburg CWA200 was one of the first electric water pump for line production introduced by BMW in 2004.
They and others are now widely available in the aftermarket and got many advantages over conventional mechanical pumps.
Some of which are the freedom of installation and the independence of engine revolutions.
Also the pumps are very well built and with its brushless canned motor they are practical maintenance free.

Advantages of electric water pumps:

The best benefit for aftermarket and motorsport application would be the freedom of installation and use.
You can mount the pump practically anywhere (yes even in the trunk) and it is completely independent of the engines revolutions.

Most of the cooling power is needed when the car is idling around in a complete standstill.
Sadly that’s the situation where a mechanical water pump got its least amount of power.
So most of the time a conventional pump is oversupplying the engine with coolant flow.

The eWP however can deliver the right amount of flow at any time it is needed.
(Only of course with the right controller that regulates the power in a smart and efficient way) ;-)


Pump supply:

We will gladly provide you with a pump (prices on a daily basis) in addition to the controller.
Just write us an email in this matter. :-)
