Robitronic Powerswitch

1 post in this topic

The Powerswitch was designed for replacing the mechanical switch to supply the receiver and servos in nitro cars.

The switch is used to switch the receiver supply on and off inside the car.

Beside that the Powerswitch informs you about the remaining capacity and error conditions of your battery.

Caution: The Powerswitch is only a Switch. That means the connected voltage on the input is directly forwarded to the output when switched on.

For example, if you use a 7.4V LiPo battery you have to make sure that your receiver and your servos are able to handle this high voltage!

Load capacity: Because of newest MosFET technology the Powerswitch is despite it‘s small size capable of handeling large currents. The use in big scale cars with up to 3 servos is no problem.

Current consumption:

As a result of the extremly low current consumption the Powerswitch can be connected longer time to the receiver battery without discharging it too much. As an example: A fully charged 1600mAh battery would last about 950 days.


• Rugged and reliable electrical switch for receiver supply in nitro cars
