Special Functions XP SC200 Electronic Speed Control (ESC) Product No. #29140 Introduction Congratulations on your purchase of Team Associated’s XP SC200 ESC. Perfect for trucks, buggies, and road racing vehicles, this competition inspired Electronic Speed Control (ESC) utilizes the latest digital technology and features easy programming with LiPo Low Voltage Cutoff and Reverse Lockout modes. THOROUGHLY READING THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL PRIOR TO INSTALLATION IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The XP SC200 can be programmed to disable Reverse for competition driving and to disable the LiPo Low Voltage Cutoff when using NiMH batteries. Disable Reverse - With the ESC connected to the battery, press and hold the set button and switch the ESC on. Reverse will now be disabled. Follow the same procedure to enable reverse. Disable Low Voltage Cutoff - While the ESC is on, press the SET button twice. The LED will flash green 5 times to indicate that the ESC is in NiMH mode. To return to LiPo mode, press the SET button 2 times and the LED will flash red 5 times to indicate that the ESC is in LiPo mode. Special Feature Easy Setup and Programming The SC200 ESC features internal protection from overheating. This function protects the SC200 against overheating during operation. If the ESC’s temperature exceeds safe levels, operation of the motor will be temporarily suspended. However, steering operation will remain unaffected. During this period, the setup LED will flash green and red simultaneously. Once the ESC has cooled to normal operating temperature, motor operation will be restored. LiPo Low Voltage Mode Overheating may be caused by one or more of the following: Features Utilizes latest SMD MOS-FETS Competition Inspired Engineering Driving in reverse in excess of 8 seconds Short Circuit Protection Use of a motor that exceeds the factory limit Real-Time Braking Reverse Lockout For Competition Use Gear mesh or drivetrain components are too tight or other drivetrain problems Oversized Heatsink Inappropriate gear ratios Compact Size Repeatedly going from full-reverse to full-forward instantaneously Using full brakes too often Specifications Inadequate air flow to the ESC Voltage Range Internal Resistance 4.8V-8.4V 0.001Ω Momentary Load (1 sec.) 470A Brief Load (30 sec.) 270A Continuous Load (300 sec.) 200A BEC Voltage Function Check Function Position LED Status Forward Partial Throttle Bright Green 5.0V Forward Full Throttle BEC Current 1.5A Neutral Frequency 2KHz Brake/Reverse Partial Throttle Bright Red Yes w/lockout Brake/Reverse Full Throttle Off Reverse Reverse Limit Motor Limit Overload Protection Set-Up Procedure Weight Dimension (mm) Yes (8 seconds) 17+ turns Off Dim Green & Red Low Voltage Cutoff Engaged Flash Green & Red Thermal Protection Engaged Flash Green & Red Yes Digital/Push Button 71.0g 49 x 36 x 28 Precautions Before installation of the ESC, read the instruction manual thoroughly. Make sure that the suppressor capacitors have been soldered to the motor. Install the ESC in a position that allows easy access to all connectors and the set-up button. Motor Supression Install the ESC so that the power cables are not in close proximity to the receiver and/or antenna. Interference may result. Please also refer to the instruction manual supplied with your radio-control system. Warnings ALWAYS unplug the battery after every use and when the vehicle is not in use. NEVER leave the vehicle unattended while the battery is plugged in. NEVER run the vehicle through water or wet grass. Water may enter the ESC causing a short circuit and possibly a fire. NEVER operate the motor with a separate battery while the motor is connected to the ESC. NEVER remove the original battery or motor connectors. Doing so will void the warranty. ALWAYS observe the correct polarity when connecting the motor and battery. Reverse polarity will result in damage to the ESC and/or other electronic components. DO NOT let the heatsink touch any metal objects or bare wires. Damage to the ESC will result. ALWAYS be sure that the ESC is mounted so that ample air flow is available for cooling. Never cover the ESC. ALWAYS observe the ESC’s motor limit. Use of an incorrect motor will void the warranty. Set-Up Procedure Before beginning the setup procedure, be sure to set the transmitter’s throttle and brake EPAs to 100%, set the throttle trim to neutral, and set the car on a stand so that the wheels are not touching the ground. 1. 2. 3. 4. Turn on transmitter Plug the battery into the ESC Switch the ESC on Press the SET button for at least 3 seconds using the plastic screwdriver supplied 5. The LED now flashes red/green to indicate that the ESC is in setup mode 6. Leave the throttle at neutral and press the SET button again 7. The neutral setting is now stored and the LED lights green 8. Move the throttle trigger/stick to full throttle and press the SET button again 9. The full-throttle setting is now stored, and the LED lights red 10. Move the brake trigger/stick to the full brake/reverse and press the SET button 11. The full brake/reverse setting is now stored, and the LED lights simultaneously 3 times. 12. Then the red/green LED remains on. Setup is now complete and the ESC is ready to use. CAUTION Incorrect polarity will damage your ESC and may cause a fire. ESC damage or radio interference may occur if the motor is used without suppressor capacitors. Never use Schottky diodes with forward/reverse electronic speed controls.
