Secure Flight - Servo Power Distribution System (PDS) by Down & Locked (Formerly Wike R/C)

The PDS was designed to provide up to 20 Amps of continuous power to the servos. The switch is a safety switch meaning that the current for the radio system does not go through the switch. If the switch fails or becomes unplugged the PDS stays on and continues to supply power to the servos and receiver. The safety switch system consumes <10 microamps (uA). This is equal about 50mAH of battery drain per year. So it is not necessary to unplug the batteries from the PDS between flying sessions. If a plane is going to be stored for long periods of time then it is not a bad idea to unplug the batteries.

The PDS is intended to have dual batteries of the same type connected. The PDS will pull power from the battery with the most charge then drain them equally when their voltages are equal. The PDS displays battery voltage for each battery on the LEDs. This allows you to mount the PDS and see how the battery voltage is holding up. The PDS can support 2-cell Li-Ion, Li-Fe, Li- PO, or A123 batteries, 5 cell Ni-Cd or Ni-Mh, and 4-cell Ni-Cd or NiMh. If dual batteries are used they should be the same type (they don't have to be the same capacity however). The batteries are isolated from each other such that if one battery fails it will not short out or drain the other battery. The type of batteries being used can be programmed into the PDS so that the LED voltage read out is correct for that type of battery. The PDS comes factory set for 2-cell Li-Ion or Li-Po but can be changed for other types with the programming button.

The voltage output to the servos is battery voltage minus about 0.2 volts. This means that if high voltage servos are being used the PDS can delivery almost full battery voltage to them. The PDS has a 3-5Amp continuous 5.0V regulator that powers the receiver. This allows you to plug standard (5V) servos into the receiver if using higher voltage servos and batteries for flight control surfaces on the PDS. This is good for things like throttle and choke for example.
