24V BEC

Post by Humpy » Mon Sep 21, 2009 9:56 pm

Chaps,

I know this has been brought up before but I can't find the link that I had before for a BEC designed to run off 24v as opposed to a lower voltage? I know John D had a supplier and I searched for his reply but his link is defunct :( Anybody got a suppier/website for one? Ta.

Technobot's SportBEC is rated at up to 33.6V input - plus we get a discount there now.

It's only 3.5A output but depends what you want to run off the receiver.

Adrian,

Well done, I knew somebody would know :D I used one of these in the halftrack and they are good. I must remember where I buy these things in future!!!

Humpy,

The last ones I got were from 'Go-brushless' and I have them in several models.

http://www.gobrushless.co.uk/rc/HiModel_UBEC.html

Mine look remarkably like the one in the picture in this link, and were 5v/6v, can't remember the input voltage but it covered 12 and 24v. Unfortunately they no longer have the specification on this web link, so you would probably need to speak to them to confirm they are still a suitable input voltage spec; bearing in mind some people talk in 'lipo cells' rather than volts in this context!!!!!!!

These sportbec units look very interesting does anyone know how they are wired in to the system and do they come with an on off switch.
