    PowerBox Royal SRS minus GPS

    Description:

    Model 4720: PowerBox Royal SRS inc. iGyro, USB cable. Does not include GPS.

    Here at PowerBox Systems we have developed a new High-End product designed to provide supreme functionality and security for the demanding pilot.

    Current requirements obliged us to adopt many new ideas during the development period: these include the triple-axis iGyro as well as our new PowerBus technology which is destined to introduce fundamental changes in the electronic layout of large-scale models as a whole.

    In other respects we have retained proven concepts in further developed form. For example, the new Royal SRS is fully programmable using a menu system, controlled with the SensorSwitch and a blue backlit LCD screen; as usual, all battery-specific and flight-relevant data can be displayed on-screen after each flight.

    The door sequencer function and the internal iGyro both feature integral set-up assistants which make it possible to complete the essential set-up procedures in very short order.

    Over the last two years developments in serial receiver bus systems have brought them to the forefront of current technology and the new Royal SRS features these inputs.                        

    The Royal SRS features no fewer than four high-performance voltage regulators allowing the use of both HV servos and conventional 6 V types. With dual security in mind, each pair of regulators can be set to an output voltage of 5.9 V or 7.4 V.

    The Servo-Match and Fail-Safe functions have also been expanded: the software now provides adjustment facilities for all 24 outputs individually, covering servo centre, travels, fail-safe and hold-mode. Servo reverse is available with a single button-press.

    Five different radio control systems - Spektrum, Futaba, Multiplex, Hott and Jeti - can be bound to the Royal SRS, some providing telemetry output of battery-relevant data.

    The Royal SRS can be updated using the USB adapter and is therefore equipped to cope with new systems in the pipeline and possible future expansions.

    Product description:

    The PowerBox Mercury SRS is a new power management system which combines all the experience and findings we have gained over the last few years, together with customer requests, in a single compact unit. Never before has so much functionality been crammed into such a small space! The Mercury SRS is ideal for any application requiring an airborne system which provides an uncompromising level of high performance. Integral iGyro, dual receiving system, telemetry, door sequencer and servo matching are just a few of the highlights which this small, lightweight device provides.

    In its development we paid particular attention to simplicity of operation. For example, the integral Assistant guides you through the entire basic setup procedure. Channel assignments and gyro settings are entered in just a few minutes with the help of the external OLED screen. Thanks to the new six-axis sensor, the unit learns its installed orientation when the owner simply raises or lowers the model's tail. The user enters the model type and desired method of working for the iGyro: for example, it is possible to select automatic torque roll, thrust vector control or various settings with and without attitude assist function.

    One highlight is the iGyro's new Test-fly Assistant: a combination of the iGyro 3e and the iGyro SRS reduces the in-flight setup procedure to a single rotary knob. Two or three passes suffice to complete the gyro adjustments, and the various flight phases can be called up by a switch, as previously defined using the Setup Assistant.

    As with the Royal SRS, an optional addition is the proven GPS II, which provides automatic gyro gain adjustment according to the model's airspeed.
     

    To ensure maximum security, two receivers (four satellites with Spektrum systems) can be connected to the installed SRS. Battery, receiver and GPS data are available for telemetry with virtually all radio control systems.

    An integral Assistant is also available for setting up the door sequencer. Any modeller who knows how tiresome the adjustment procedure can be with conventional door sequencers will be surprised how quick it can be to set up a retract system including four wheel doors; it takes just a few minutes.

    The servo match function is available for all outputs. This facility enables various functions - such as the left and right landing flaps - to be controlled using just one channel. It is also used to synchronise multiple servos operating on a single control surface. Incidentally, the servo output assignment is also pre-defined using the Setup Assistant. The assignment varies according to the model type you select; multiple outputs can be assigned per channel, and the system 'learns' the landing flap and throttle channels. The powerful 16-bit processor and the system's update facility guarantee a future-proof device; updates with new functions can be installed at any time using PowerBox Terminal or our BlueCom adapter. PowerBox pilots know: their systems always reflect the latest state of technology!

  4. Powerbox MicroMatch
    $26.99
    Powerbox MicroMatch

    Product description

    The PowerBox MicroMatch is the ideal solution for models where there is no space for a PowerBox, or where the PowerBox in use does not include the MicroMatch’s functions.
    The MicroMatch provides a very simple method of fine-tuning the servo travels and centre positions of both outputs. Its main application is for systems where two servos operate a single control surface; the unit can match them electronically to run exactly in parallel. This prevents the servos counteracting each other, and allows the torque and speed of both servos to be exploited to the full. A further positive effect is a significant reduction in current drain and servo wear.

     

    The MicroMatch includes a servo reverse function which changes the direction of rotation of the servos with a single click. This is ideal for elevator servos which are installed as a mirror-image pair, allowing them to be operated using just one channel. Further applications are twin rudders or steerable nosewheels.
    All adjustments can be carried out using the USB interface (Jeti and MPX adapters can also be used) or a BlueCom adapter. The BlueCom option offers one very practical feature: it is possible to make direct adjustments at the servo output arm, and alter the settings conveniently using a mobile phone and a Bluetooth link!
    The MicroMatch includes an update facility, allowing for possible future expansions to the range of functions.


    Features

    •     Servo-match function on both outputs
    •     Servo reverse, accurate adjustment of centre and end-points
    •     Programmable using a telephone app (BlueCom) or a PC (USB)
    •     Quick reverse function
    •     16-bit processor for high-speed signal processing
    •     4096-step resolution to suit the latest generation of servos
    •     Interference suppression and signal amplifier function
    •     Ultra-high current capacity: limited only by the plug and socket connection
    •     Can be updated using BlueCom or the USB Interface Adapter

    PowerBox MagSensor Black Connector with Sensor & Keychain

    Black Connector for Royal SRS, Champion SRS

    The MagSensor represents an alternative method of operating and switching our PowerBox battery backers. The circuit is based on modern, zero-contact "Hall sensors", which respond to a magnetic field by activating the electronic switches in the PowerBox. The Hall sensors do not switch the current, but simply pass on the switching signal.

    This accessory is suitable for all PowerBox systems, regardless of age, which are designed to be switched on and off using the SensorSwitch. The basic purpose of the MagSensor is to switch the dual power circuits on and off, but it can also be used to reset the capacity display fitted to more recent systems, if this is an integral feature of the PowerBox. The SensorSwitch must still be used for programming servos and carrying out set-up tasks within the PowerBox's programming menu. The particular advantage of the MagSensor is that scale pilots can exploit all the advantages of our redundant battery backer systems, but without an exposed On / Off switch.

    The magnetic trigger is powerful enough to penetrate reliably through thick GRP / CFRP walls panels, even if they are several millimeters thick.

    In addition to a pair of green LEDs for visual monitoring, the MagSensor features a supplementary Piezo sounder, which confirms the On / Off switching process by means of beeps of different pitch.

    The MagSensor still requires you to activate both power circuits individually - as with all PowerBox systems. The reason behind this feature is that the PowerBox contains two redundant switching and regulatory systems. Separate control also gives you the opportunity to check each of the PowerBox's power circuits individually - and this also applies to the MagSensor.

    If you are using a PowerBox System with an integral capacity counter, the MagSensor can also be used to reset the residual capacity display.

    • Energy source: From the connected PowerBox
    • Current drain: Power-on state approx. 10 mA, Power-off state approx. 20 µA
    • Temperature range: - 30 °C to + 75 °C
