The new Powerbox Cockpit ist the ideal battery backer for all model jets and scale aircraft, as it features four match-channels and a door sequenzer for six servos. The door sequenzer is fully programmable, the programming is not tied to pre-set modes, and each servo is freely variable in all directions in terms of travel and transit speed.
The PowerBox Cockpit features eleven channels which are accessed remotely from the receiver, four of which take the form of match channels.
All the programming procedures are carried out using the SensorSwitch in con junction with the OLED screen: these include selecting the battery type and output voltage, programming the door sequencer and fine-tuning the match-channels.
All the components - linear regulators, electronic switches, voltage monitors - required to form a secure power supply to modern receivers and sensors are duplicated.
The PowerBox Cockpit features sockets for data feedback by downlink - i.e. for telemetry. The PowerBox Cockpit records data such as voltage, consumption and residual capacity for both batteries, and the system provides a means of transmitting that data back to your transmitter (prepared for Spektrum and Multiplex systems). A very important feature is that an alarm can be triggered if battery voltage falls below a set low voltage threshold.
The PowerBox Cockpit is prepared for and compatible with all modern 2,4 GHz receivers, including Spektrum, FASST, MPX, regardless of type.
The receivers are connected to the unit using eleven patch leads, which are supplied in the set.
If you decide to use modern, lightweight LiPo batteries, we recommend the PowerBox Battery 1500, 2800 or 4000 of our range.
The SensorSwitch included in the set acts as the external actuator for the electronic switches inside the PowerBox Cockpit.
