Detailed information is available in theinstruction manual.

For systems using 24 V supply voltage, we recommend the use of a24v12or24v23 driver. When using18v17,18v15and18v25controllers, there is a risk that the voltage will exceed the permissible value of 24 V at certain moments (e.g. when the batteries are fully charged), which may cause permanent damage to the system.


  • Manualcontaining sample connections and source codes
  • Adjustable start and maximum speed
  • Option to prevent accidental starting of the engine
  • Adjustable PWM frequency from 1 kHz to 22 kHz
  • Can be turned off when the supply voltage is too low
  • LED diode indicating the appearance of errors


HighPower series controllers can communicate through three interfaces:

Computer USB port

  • Communication with a computer through a virtual COM port
  • Sample codesin C #, Visual Basic, .NET, C ++
  • Optional security (CRC control, timeout)
  • Automatic detection of the baud rate (from 1200 bps to 500 kbps)

Remote Control - modeling apparatus

  • Frequencies from 10 to 333 Hz
  • Adjustable parameters for RC signal
  • Two channels
  • Possibility to power the receiver from the BEC system (BEC jumper)

Analog interface

  • Resolution: 12 bits
  • Voltage range: 0 to 3.3V
  • Two analog channels
