Zepsus Dual Battery Magnetic Switch 7Amp

5 5

Designed for F5J competition gliders.

  • This is a very small power switch designed for F5J competition gliders.  Small, very strong and super reliable, due to it's redundant functionality. The switch automatically chooses the battery with the highest voltage. The output power from the Zepsus will not be interrupted even in the event that one battery short circuits. When both batteries are the same voltage the Zepsus draws from both, simultaneously.

    The Dual Battery provide redundant functionality, which provides security. The switch simply selects the battery or BEC with the highest voltage. If the voltage is the same, the power is drawn from both batteries or BEC’s. If one battery or BEC is removed or short-circuit, it will not affect the other battery or the output voltage. The idea is to use 1S Lipo/4S NiMH or 2S RX lipo depending on whether RX lipo should be the main RX battery (2S) or backup battery (1S Lipo/4S NiMH).  

    The switch has an ultra low power consumption rate in the off-state. The consumption is so low that the switch can be connected to a 1000mAh battery for several years without discharging it. The switch has a built-in failsafe function. It remembers its failsafe state for at least 10 sec when disconnected from the supply battery. It will protect the glider against power glitches caused by intermittent battery connections or other momentary electrical disruptions.

    Production testing
    All switches have been tested at 20A for 30 sec before delivery. Standby consumption is adjusted and a visual inspection is made.
