The throttle interface has the following functions:
Converts the signal from a standard bike throttle (hall or resistor) to a servo input for an RC motor controller. This unit was tuned specifically for the Castle Creations Phoenix 110HV, but should work any RC controller.
Has an on-the-fly adjustable current limiter that can adjust from near zero to around 95 amps (100A version). Current sensing is on the battery side.
Has a built-in BEC 5 volt regulator that powers the circuit, controller input and hall effect throttle. The BEC regulator output is limited to 100ma and short circuit protected. The input voltage can range from 10v to 60v. Higher voltage operation is possible, but may require changing R1.
Has an optional input for a brake switch cutoff and external battery low voltage cutoff signal.
Has a provision for adding overtemperature current limiting via external thermistor (beta).
Has a bank of capacitors to supplement the main capacitors in the RC controller.
The unit is installed between the battery and the RC controller. On the boxed units, the battery wires come out of the side with the adjustment pot.
The controller wires come out the side with the servo connector.
