Wasp Controller


wasp controller

The Wasp controller is a perfect match for the GEARS competition motor, or for any high performance application.

These light-weight, high performance Wasp's are perfect for powering brushed DC motors with continuous outputs in the 100-200 Watt range.

Voltage Range:6V-24V (28V absolute max)
Current: 10A cont. at 100% duty cycle
9A cont. at 70%
30A - 5 second peak
PWM Frequency: 3.9kHz
Over-Current and Over-Temp Protection: Built-in
Input Voltage: 2.5 V - 5.5 V = logic high
Levels: RC Standard Connection
Size: 0.65" x 1.85" x 0.44"
Weight: 9 gm with RC lead
Mounting: 1x - 4-40 or M2.5 size hole

Your actual current capacity will vary based on the type of load, the length and size of wires, power supply capability and other factors.

Features Include:
  • Size: .65” x 1.85” x .44”
  • Weight: 9.0 grams with servo lead installed
  • Standard R/C pulse format
  • Calibrate function to match unit to radio signal range. Settings retained in EEPROM non-volatile storage.
  • 6.5V to 28V battery voltage (>20V requires an external 5V supply)
  • Fully reversible H-bridge design. Equal power handling in both directions
  • 10A continuous, 30A peak current
  • Full current limiting and over temp limiting.
  • Limit switch inputs to stop motion in one direction when closed. Motion is allowed in the other direction.
  • Indicator LED for speed and direction of motor
  • Status LED status information and mode indications
  • Receiver battery eliminator circuit (BEC) standard – may be disabled. This can provide up to 100 mA of current at 5V to the RC receiver and other attached electronic circuits. (Must be de-rated for input voltage above 16V)
  • Failsafe shuts off motor if R/C signal is lost
  • FLASH-based microcontroller with upgradeable software via in-circuit programming header
  • Ceramic oscillator (crystal) for stable operation at all temperatures
  • Optional 4 position screw terminal may be user soldered to top or bottom of PCB for easy removal of battery and motor wires
  • Capable of supporting I2C or serial command streams. Not supported by stock R/C software but user may replace the stock code if desired. Contact us if you would like to discuss custom software for your application.
