Description

The HobbyKing Regulator switch is an easy and convenient way to add dual power redundancy to your electronics system. Simply use a pair of 7.4v Lipoly batteries and the system will provide dual 5.9v power outputs. The dual outputs can be used for 2 receivers or with a single receiver by using only one power output. In the case of a single output/single receiver configuration the output being used is supplied power by both batteries or a single battery in the case of a battery failure.

This system provides a stabilized voltage of 5.9v. Perfect for 6v Rx systems. This design enables you to use the latest lightweight Lithium-Polymer cells without exceeding the maximum voltage of 6.0 Volts.

The Hobbyking Sensor is equipped with LED power-on indicators for both power circuits. If you switch one battery on, the associated green LED glows. When both batteries are active, both LEDs light up.

The total voltage loss in the HobbyKing Sensor is about .35v which is so low that the volume of waste heat is almost negligible. The maximum continuous current is 5A which means it can easily handle up to 8 servos. However the rated continuous current of 5A does not reflect the capacity of the electronics which can handle much more for short periods, depending on ambient air temperature.

Do not allow the heat sink to exceed 60 Celsius


Specs:
Operating Voltage: 4~9v
Power Supply: One or Two 2S 7.4v Lipoly
Max Load: 5A cont.
Voltage Loss: 0.35v
Voltage stabilization: +/- .1v
Weight: 35g

Directions.
You cannot manually switch the current from one battery to the other, this is done automatically within the system.
The control functions consist of three push-buttons, two green LED’s and one red LED.
The buttons are marked SET, I and II.
The ‘SET’ button is to prepare the system. Holding the SET button in for 2 seconds ‘arms’ both internal switches, this will be shown by the red LED. After you have armed the system, press either or both I, II buttons to activate each battery.
Press and hold ‘SET’ to switch the system off again.

Initial testing seems to indicate this is a quality switch, I've run two of them for several hours on the bench and had no problems, even when introducing vibration to the rest rig. I'll definitely use these two in models with confidence and will buy again when the need arises.

Excellent inter double alim, je l'utilise depuis deux ans avec deux lipos 2s, 1550 mAh, fonctionne parfaitement. Rapport qualité/prix imbattable !

A Manual would be a nice consideration from Hobbyking. This is the second product with no instuctions from them Do they really know why they are selling these products

Ive been using these now for several years, they used to be absolute magic but in the last year or so a gremlin seems to have crept into the system.


When connected to a 2 cell fully charged LiPo the lights used to be green but that seems (at least with the last six Ive had) to longer be the case, they just go to a solid red immediately, they can however still be used with care, as at around 6.6 volts on the LiPo setting the solid red light starts to flash, it seems to flash faster as the voltage drops off. So if using LiPos if the red light are flashing dont fly.


On the LiFe setting the, lights are green on a freshly charged pack and turn, red at about 5.5V and become a flashing red at 5.0V.


Take care though as the recent ones that Ive received have come with the setting as LiFe and if you dont change this and use a LiPo pack you wont get a warning till the LiPo is flat as no warning will kick in till 5.5V at which point the pack is effectively dead.


Its not just me either as Im aware of others who have had the same problem.


Its a real shame as what was once a perfect product is now imperfect and I hate flying on red lights!

I haven't used these yet but by looking at the reviews and the price, you just can't go wrong. I recently ordered the Powerbox one from hobbyking, i didn't see these at all. I have 2 and both are still yet to be used. Will update once installed and tested. Thanks a lot HK!!

Trs bien, mais pas assez scuris : j'ai utilis par erreur un lipo 3s, a a fonctionn pendant 5mn, puis il a grill. Rsultat : il laisse passer la tension du pack de manire transparente au lieu d'ouvrir le circuit. a m'a cout un servo d'AC a 60 :(:(
