Currawong Engineering is pleased to release its updated 18S ESC Velocity, adding true hardware interlock and fully isolated PWM input to the existing proven design.
True hardware interlock is the ultimate in operator safety – providing guaranteed motor shutdown without the need for bulky inline power switches. CAN communications operate independently of the interlock, allowing for preflight checks with complete confidence in the safe status of the ESC.
The ESC Velocity now also includes a fully isolated PWM command input which complements the powerful CAN command and telemetry interface. The PWM input provides a simple migration path for applications not yet fully integrated with CAN. Galvanic isolation of the CAN and PWM signals provides extremely high noise immunity.
Currawong’s Chief Executive Officer, Gavin Brett said “we are thrilled with the high uptake of our ESC Velocity. It is being used extensively on hybrid quadcopters by major prime contractors. We have sold over 330 units so far in 2018 and we are receiving many new customer enquiries”.
