DSM ESC - Dual Switch Mixer
DSM ESC is an electronic switch for powering receiver and servos. It combines the voltage output from either two electronic speed controllers (ESC), each with a BEC circuit or an ESC in combination with a receiver battery. The throttle signal from the receiver is supplied to both controllers simultaneously. The DSM ESC also includes a receiver power supply switch.
The voltage from the electronic controllers connected to the inputs of the DSM ESC is constantly measured and supplied directly to the output by the DSM ESC’s internal processor. The DSM ESC then automatically switches between the inputs so that your receiver is always powered by the power supply with the higher voltage. The signal outputs are interconnected. The DSM ESC output is fitted with a JR connector that can connect the output directly to the receiver. The other JR connector, male, is used to connect an electronic switch, a magnetic switch, or an RC Switch. The DSM ESC can also be operated without an electronic switch. Then, DSM ESC is permanently switched on and functions only as a voltage combiner. The DSM ESC is not equipped with a voltage regulator circuit for the connected batteries or voltage supplies. The voltage at the DSM ESC output will always be equal to the voltage of the input with the higher voltage. Make sure that your receiver, servos and other equipment supplied by the DSM ESC are designed for the voltage being supplied.
The DSM ESC is controlled by a magnetic switch which can be activated using the magnetic key from outside of your model. By touching the target with the magnetic key the system is switched on or off. When switched off, the electronic switch draws very little power.
