Castle Creations Telemetry Link S-Bus, Futaba Compatible, CC-TEL-FUTABA
Knowledge is Power!
Maybe you want to know the voltage of your onboard battery(s), the RPM the motor is turning or the temperature of your ESC. In this day and age, R/C is not just one-way communication anymore. Traditional radio systems just transmit signals to the receiver, but Telemetry-capable systems also send real-time data from your model back to your transmitter. The S.BUS2 Telemetry Link was developed based on communication protocol disclosed from Futaba for use with specific Futaba S.BUS2 radios and compatible Castle Creations ESCs. Telemetry data can be displayed on the transmitter screen, or notify you when a defined threshold is exceeded, (battery voltage, ESC temperature, etc.) you can configure a vibration or sound alert from the radio.
- Battery Voltage - You will be able to see the voltage state of your battery during flight and respond appropriately to deteriorating conditions or alarms you’ve programmed in your radio.
- Battery Current - Compatible controllers will transmit the instantaneous current draw of the system. You can use this information to reduce the load to prevent an overcurrent shutdown
- Motor Power Output - This is the percentage of full power your ESC is delivering to your motor
- RPM - Ensure you are within acceptable parameters, without the use of a tachometer
- BEC Voltage - Monitor your BEC voltage and its stability to the RX even under different loads from different servos
- ESC temperature monitoring can eliminate a potential thermal shut down
- Battery - Ripple Just how hard are the capacitors, FETS, and internal components working with your set up, excessive ripple can cause internal heating of batteries. Excessive heat is harmful to the components and it can ultimately kill the controller
- Circuit board: 1.0" (25.4mm) x 0.44" (11mm)
- Overall dimensions:
- 5.25" (133mm) x 0.44" (11mm) including wires
- 0.192 oz (5.44g) without wires
- Tech Notes
- The Telemetry Link will not work if the ESC is programmed for Multirotor or External Governor Mode due to the higher PWM frequency.
