Castle Creations CapPack Capacitor Pack
Castle Creations CapPack Capacitor Pack - CSE011000202
The Castle Creations CapPack is useful in all brushless motor airplane applications. The CapPack serves to give just that little boost needed to overcome voltage ripples caused by hard acceleration or long wires. Ripple voltage is hard on an ESC, adding the CC CapPack can help reduce the load on the controller's on-board capacitors.
CC CapPack is designed for quick and easy installation. Users simply cut the soft silicone insulation on the battery wires – do this as close to the ESC as possible – and place the exposed wires in the channels on CC CapPack's posts. Check for proper polarity and then solder the wires to the posts. Use the included heat shrink to finish it off for a professional looking install.
Note: All Castle controllers with data logging capabilities can report the ripple voltage they encounter during use. Ripple voltage peaks should always be less than 10% of the total pack voltage; the smaller the ripple voltage the better. If an application exhibits more than 10% ripple voltage under peak loads, the user should consider using higher discharge (C Rating) batteries, shorter wires, higher current connectors, better gearing or a smaller load.
Multiple CapPacks may be used in an application. They should all be installed as close to the ESC as possible.
