PowerBox Professional has been a popular and reliable power supply
system ever since its introduction in 2002. However, until now it has
been limited to use with 4S or 5S NiCd or NiMH batteries.
Now we are
introducing the 3rd generation of the PowerBox Professional, which has
been completely revised to cater for the developing demands on modern
power supply systems.
The new version incorporates many new
features, including a high-resolution OLED screen, electronic switches,
menu-based programming, regulated output voltage of 5.9 V or 7.4 V, four
match-channels, telemetry capability and much more.
Professional supports eight channels remotely accessed from the
receiver, four of which are equipped with a servo-match function. This
makes it ideal for aerobatic models in the 25% to 35% class as well as
for jets. The purpose of servo-matching is to adjust the centre point,
end-points and direction of rotation very accurately for each servo.
This means that multiple servos connected mechanically to a single
control surface can be fine-tuned to operate exactly in parallel,
preventing the servos working against each other. They are able to
develop their full power, and consume less current. Servo-matching can
also extend the effective life of your servos enormously.
However, servo-matching also allows functions to be
linked, avoiding the need for two channels at the transmitter. As an
example: the left and right landing flaps can be operated using just one
transmitter channel, as the direction of rotation and the servo
end-points are adjusted at the Professional. This saves channels, and in
many cases makes the transmitter programming procedure much easier.
the settings are programmed using the SensorSwitch in conjunction with
the high-resolution OLED screen. All the menu points are displayed in
full text form on the screen - rather than as abbreviations - which
makes it much easier to understand the procedure.
Naturally it is possible to use the MagSensor to switch the Professional on and off, if you wish to conceal the switch.
PowerBox Professional can be updated using the USB interface adapter.
This means that future expansions - such as additional telemetry systems
- can be loaded and used in just a few minutes.
