Ti Automotive BKS1001 Brushless Fuel Pump with controller


SKU BKS1001-4 Category:


The  BKS1001 high pressure, brushless fuel pump & controller kit, which will replace the current BKS1000, features:

•    Direct-fit replacement

•    PWM (pulse-width modulation) input command controller

•    High pressure, high flow E5LM brushless screw pump

•    Support of 1,000+ horsepower

•    Reduced system current draw

•    Suitability for naturally aspirated and boosted applications

The BKS1001 has the added functionality of PWM control which we know enthusiasts want for their builds
BKS1001 has an optional speed control function. The controller will accept a pulse-width modulated input to slow down pump speed. This decreases fuel pump flow 350-370LPH from the maximum output. If this input is left disconnected
This kit includes many components including an E5LM submersible brushless fuel pump and controller. These two items are NOT available separately. The pump is an efficient screw pump design with positive displacement that is designed for in-tank installation only.


Brushless Pump Specifications:
• 550+ LPH @ 13.5V / 40 psi
• Capable up to 1000+ HP
• High flow, high pressure
• Reduced noise
• Suitable for both naturally aspirated and boosted applications


1. The controller requires a squarewave frequency (battery voltage to ground) at 100Hz.
2. When the duty cycle input is between 95-100%, the controller will output a 100% duty cycle signal to the pump.
3. When the duty cycle input is between 10-95%, the controller will output a linear transfer function though this range.
4. When the duty cycle input is less than 1-4%, the controller will output a 0% duty cycle signal to the pump.
5. When the signal wire is simply grounded, the controller will output a 45% duty cycle signal to the pump.

Brushed DC motors have been around since the late 19th century and brushless motor technology has been around since the advent of solid state electronics in the 1960s. Yet, it wasn’t until the development of cheaper and higher powered transistor technology that brushless motors would find regular integration in nearly everything from cordless drills to computer fans. They’re also in fuel pumps manufactured by TI Automotive. What is the advantage of a brushless pump over a traditional brushed pump?



Advantage of Brushless Motor Technology in a Fuel Pump Integrating brushless technology with the latest fuel pump technology brings many advantages over brushed motor fuel pumps, including:
• Reduced noise due to less friction
• Helps provide a longer life due to less internal degradation
• Higher speeds through the use of magnetic induction without the restrictions caused by required direct contact of brushes
• Increased or decreased motor speed based on inputs from controller
• Can be tuned to required application

Technical Differences

The primary technical difference lies in the name. A traditional DC brush motor contains stationary contacts called “brushes.” The brushes, usually made of a soft conductor like graphite, press against the commutator. This direct contact of the brushes against the commutator is what provides the electrical current to the motor windings. Conversely, a brushless motor foregoes those brushes altogether.

Traditional brushed motors are designed with magnets in the stator and coils in the rotor, while the brushless design is effectively inverted (magnets in the rotor and coils in the stator). In a brush design, to energize the coils and turn the rotor, current is transmitted through the brushes to the commutator. The rotating commutator segments switch current to their respective coils. Since the brushes and commutator are removed from the brushless design, something else is needed to perform the commutation. This is where the brushless controller comes in. It contains an array of transistors that switch current to their respective coils to get the rotor turning, just like the brushes and commutator.

A controller is required for a brushless motor to function, so it goes without stating that one is required to operate a brushless fuel pump. Basic controllers have functionality for simple plug-and-play, designed for maximum flow at 100 percent duty cycle, while high-end controllers allow for full control with variable pressure ranges and duty cycles. The brushless fuel pump also has the ability to be fully integrated with an OEM or aftermarket Engine Control Unit (ECU). Employing a controller allows for the motor speed to be increased or decreased to the desired flow rate to maintain optimal fuel pressure. Additionally, the fuel pump speed can be turned on and off, as required, for vehicles with stop-start systems. Furthermore, a brushless fuel pump can last longer than a brushed fuel pump – more no-wear components increase longevity. These no-wear parts lead to less overall heat created by friction achieving greater efficiency with minimal electrical load.

Brushless fuel pumps are capable of full “tune-ability.” Through the use of the controller, it’s possible to change the fuel demand to a higher flow rate for racing applications with the ability to change it back to a lower flow rate for street use. Unheard of before brushless fuel pumps, this has created an advantage for the weekend racer who commutes with the same car or even just drives back and forth to an event.

Does Your Car Need a Brushless Fuel Pump?
While a brushless fuel pump provides obvious advantages, it may not necessarily provide an advantage to your application. This advanced technology comes with a higher cost for the pump and the needed controller. The advantages of controllability and efficiency throughout its life may outweigh the increased cost. Cars with older fuel injection or carbureted fuel systems may not reap the advantages of a brushless fuel pump, but it may be advantageous to consider it if your plans include upgrading
