PowerBox Sensor V3
The PowerBox Sensor V3 is the third generation of the PowerBox Sensor, which is well-known throughout the world. For almost twenty years the PowerBox
Sensor has represented the standard for small to medium-sized models thanks to its compact format and versatility.
By using the latest components we have been able to reduce the size of the Sensor V3 significantly. For example, the case is now exactly half as deep (11 mm compared with 22 mm). Nevertheless, the Sensor V3 still fits neatly in the aperture used by its predecessor.
The introduction of a top-quality aluminium case, machined and anodised, has brought a substantial increase in the unit’s cooling efficiency, with the result that the maximum continuous current capacity of the PowerBox Sensor V3 is around 35 % higher. In fact, the peak load capacity is twice as high: the Sensor V3 can handle more than 20 A for several seconds!
The Sensor V3 offers two user-selectable output voltages: for normal servos it can be set to a regulated 6.0 V, while a regulated 7.8 V is available for HV servos– provided that the batteries supply the higher input voltage required.
Power to the unit can be drawn from four different battery types: LiPo, LiIon, LiFePo, NiMH. Ultra-bright RGB LEDs are fitted to indicate battery voltage; they light up in various colours to display the charge status of the batteries.
CORE users also benefit from one special additional feature: both battery voltages can be displayed directly on the transmitter by means of telemetry
