Currawong is excited to announce the release of its smallest Electronic Speed Controller (ESC) to expand upon its world-leading range of aerospace-grade motor controllers. The Velocity XS ESC is the smaller sibling to the HS, HT and HC, with a weight approximately one-quarter of the HS, but packing an extremely high power-density – Currawong’s highest.
Weighing just 75g, the Velocity XS provides the same field-proven reliability and comprehensive feature set of the highly successful H-Series in a much smaller package. Operating at voltages up to 14S (58V) and delivering over 4kW continuous power, the Velocity XS is engineered specifically to meet and exceed the particular requirements of airborne operation.
The XS brings all of the features of its larger siblings, including an isolated CAN interface, with advanced telemetry and protection features. To assure serviceability for a wide range of customers, the autopilot integration capabilities include DroneCAN, PiccoloCAN and PWM.
Currawong also offers a complete in-house ESC and motor optimisation service to configure your Currawong ESCs to your particular motor and individual requirements. Visit the Currawong website for more information and a free sample report.
