Down and Locked (Formerly Wike R/C) 15 Amp Regulator with Fail Safe Switch.

The Down and Locked 15 Amp regulator (or more accurately DC to DC converter) brings a new level of high current and high power regulation and efficiency to the RC hobby and UAV applications. This regulator is designed for 25-50% scale and large models and UAVs applications with several high speed and high torque servos. Today's high performance servos can pull from 1-5 Amps each. Most flyers do not realize how much current their fast high torque servos are pulling and the limitations of their power system is one of the biggest risks in flight. The standard connectors we use are only rated for 3 amps and many servos on the market can draw more than this each. Larger models need a high current capable power system supplying all of the servos not limited by small guage wire and connectors. The D&L 15 amp switch regulator can serve well at the center of this power system.

This regulator is adjustable from about 4.5Volts to about 7.0 Volts so you can set it to your desired voltage for higher servo speed and torque based on your servo's limitations. Additionally, It is basically an industrial rated high frequency (300Khz which is outside the mixer stages of RC receivers stages and will not cause interference) DC to DC converter and not what is typically though of as a regulator in the RC hobby. What this means is that it does not waste power rather it converts a higher voltage into a lower voltage without generating heat or wasting battery power. Due to its high efficiency, no heat sink or fan is required. Additionally, weight is saved and power that is normally converted to heat with linear regulators is reused for additionally capacity saving battery power. This regulator operates at between 80-95% efficiency compared with <50-75% efficiency for linear regulators. This regulator for example will give you about 4500MaH at 5.0Volts from a 3500MaH 2-cell lipo.

This regulator will deliver 15Amps continuously as well as a 15Amp peak. It is current limited at 15Amps. The regulator has high temperature and short circuit protection.

This regulator will output the programmed voltage (5.00V factory preset) or battery voltage which ever is lower. It basically acts like a switch if the battery voltage is less that the regulated voltage setting. Additionally, the power switch is a "safety switch" so if the switch fails or is unplugged the regulator stays ON. The current from the regulator does not flow through the switch. So, there is no risk of power failure due to switch failure or being unplugged.
