PowerBox Champion SRS

PowerBox Systems has developed yet another High-End product designed to provide supreme functionality and security for the demanding pilot. The Champion SRS is the sister of the new Royal SRS but without the integral iGyro. Current requirements obliged us to adopt many new ideas during the development period: all 24 outputs have a ServoMatch function, the unit features a door-sequencer as standard, and not least the latest PowerBus technology which is destined to introduce fundamental changes in the electronic layout of large-scale models as a whole.

In other respects we have retained proven concepts in further developed form. For example, the new Champion SRS is fully programmable using a menu system, controlled with the SensorSwitch and a blue backlit LCD screen. As usual, all battery-specific and flight-relevant data can be displayed on-screen after each flight. The door sequencer function features an integral set-up assistant which make it possible to complete the essential set-up procedure in very short order.                           

Over the last two years developments in serial receiver bus systems have brought them to the forefront of current technology, and the new Champion SRS features these inputs.

The Champion SRS features no fewer than four high-performance voltage regulators allowing the use of both HV servos and conventional 6V types. With dual security in mind, each pair of regulators can be set to an output voltage of 5.9V or 7.4V. The Servo-Match and Fail-Safe functions have also been expanded: the software now provides adjustment facilities for all 24 outputs individually covering servo centre, travels, fail-safe and hold-mode. Servo reverse is available with a single button-press. Five different radio control systems - Spektrum, Futaba, Multiplex, Hott and Jeti - can be bound to the Champion SRS, some providing telemetry output of battery-relevant data.

The Champion SRS can be updated using the USB adapter and is therefore equipped to cope with new systems in the pipeline and possible future expansions.

Please note:  Futaba S-Bus II receivers not compatible

Operating Instructions

Note:  The PowerBoxes (with the exception of the BaseLog) will not work with the Spektrum Power Safe receivers. We recommend you use the AR 9000 or the JR 921.

Note:  DO NOT FLY ON FRAME LOSS SCREEN.  Always fly on Dash Board Consumption Screen.
