This device is a remotely controlled glow plug driver that's designed specifically for two-cylinder engines. The user can control the glow plug on/off state through a channel on the transmitter.
The device can adjust output current automatically according to the operation state of the glow plug to ensure the best working temperature. It's driven directly through low frequency pulse width, because of this it offers high efficiency and no signal interference.
It features overtime and low voltage protection, automatically switching off when continuous working time is more than 5 minutes or if working voltage is less than 3V. This is to avoid over-discharging of the battery. It also features short circuit and overheat protection.
• LED working state indicator
• Remote operation via transmitter channel
• Auto-current adjustment based on temperature of glow plug
• Overtime, low voltage, overheat and short circuit protection
Working voltage: 3.2V~8.4V (1~2S LiXX)
Input power plug: JST
Glow plug wire length: 175mm
So far this is BRILLIANT, just connect and glow.....or go if you prefer. Works like a dream and it saved me a HUGE amount of weight being able to remove my home made setup. This is 23 grams, my setup was 240 gram. BIG saving on weight, and cheap enough i bought another, just in case the electronics fail in the 1st oneWorks as expected.
If using with Futaba 6EX Transmitter or similar with a reversed throttle create a mix with throttle and channel 5 for the glow driver control. I have just set my Beaver up with one and used a 38pcnt mix to achieve full glow at bottom 1/4 of throttle and low heat on upper part of throttle. It can be completely switched off using the chnl 5 Gyro switch. Works just as well with a single 3200mah 3.7v TrustFire cell as it does with a LIFE 1700mah 6.6v 2S 20c Rx pack.works great on two cell lipo, never faced any issues!, i am using it on my OS Gemini twin 120 fourstroke engine for a while, i dont understand how it automatically adjust the glow power automatically but i am able to control manually from the radio knob.I have 3 of these units, 2 are for single cylinder engines ( just use 1 set of leads), I find they cannot handle input voltages of above about 6 volts, 2 cell lipo is too much, 5 volts perfect.l'accendi candela funziona correttamente provato sia con 4 ni-mh e 2 lipo,l'unico difetto sta nel fatto che le candele non diventano molto incandescenti cio diventano di un rosso acceso soltanto nella fase iniziale poi quando passa automaticamente nella fase di volo diventano debolmente rosse,sistema ottimo per motori perfettamente funzionanti dove si vuole abbassare leggermente il minimo senza spente indesiderate,sconsigliato su motori con problemi al minimo perche le candele non si accendono repentinamenteDescription state: "The device can adjust output current automatically according to the operation state of the glow plug to ensure the best working temperature. " How does it work.Works fine as a 2 cylinder or single cylinder on board glow driver. Using a 6.6 volt LIFE pack and all is well.I have only bench tested as yet and as others have found it will only work on single cell lipo or some other supply around that voltage. It does work as you would expect switching on at low throttle but there is no means to change setup if your installation needs to have reverse setup on the servo then it will switch on at high throttle so be aware of this. I have 2 of these and both tested ok. I have only had 1 plug connected as that's all I needed.Gutes Teil. Leider gibt es dieses nicht auch mit 1 Zylinder zum steuern ber einen Kanal.Would not work with Futaba 2.4GHz but worked OK with 36MHz radios. Manufacturer unable to offer solution, just said should work OK. Hobby King advised of this and suggested setting full travel on TX or using other channels - still would not work. Performance on 36MHz radio is fine, unit is well made and good value for the price paid.
