The SCO-30

Smartcontrol Model #

 The 30 amp Optically Isolated Smartcontrol (SCO-30) is a proportional forward and reverse electronic motor control for brush-type motors which features optically isolated control and power circuits. To learn more about optical isolation and its' benefits, click here. This microcontroller based control also features two pulse width modulation (PWM) rates, current limiting, reverse power limiting, automotive type input fuse, and flexible 13 gauge silicone wire (for motor and battery). The ABS plastic case is included in the pricing. The  SCO-30 is factory preset for a current limit  of 30 amps. This control is designed to work for an unlimited time at maximum current without overheating.

The SCO-30 is compatible with the 2.4GHz Spektrum RC System. 

Current Limiting

Smartcontrol features automatic current limiting which protects your control and motor in case of stalled motor and also protects the control in case of a short in the wiring. Once the current reaches the limit current (shown above) the control will automatically shut down. The user must move the stick on the transmitter to the center (off) position to restart the control. The current limiting has a start-up delay period of 2/10 of a second. During the first 2/10 of a second after moving the stick from the off position the current limiting will not activate. This allows for high current surges when the motor is starting. 

The Fuse

The SCO-30 is equipped with a 30 amp automotive type blade fuse. The fuse is intended to protect the unit from a polarity reversal on the battery power wires and shorts caused by water immersion. Replacement fuses can be purchased from most automobile supply stores.

Reverse Power Limiting

Some high performance boats can pull their stern underwater if full reverse power is applied. When reverse power limiting is enabled the power in the reverse direction is limited to 50% of full power.

The Diagnostic Light Emitting Diode (LED)

The LED provides the user with a visual indication of the state of the Smartcontrol. This is useful when adjusting the unit and also for troubleshooting problems in your R/C system. It is capable of displaying 3 different colors.

 The SCO 10 and 20

Standard Version with Plastic Case


 

Smartcontrol Model #


The 10 and 20 amp Optically Isolated Smartcontrols (SCO 10/20) are proportional forward and reverse electronic motor controls  for brush-type motors which features optically isolated control and power circuits. To learn more about optical isolation and its' benefits, click here. These microcontroller based controls also features two pulse width modulation (PWM) rates, current limiting, reverse power limiting and an automotive type input fuse. The SCO 10/20 are factory preset for one of two limit currents: 10 amps or 20 amps. These controls are designed to work for an unlimited time at maximum current without overheating.

The Fuse

The SCO-10 is equipped with a 10 amp automotive type mini-blade fuse. The SCO-20 is equipped with a 20 amp automotive type mini-blade fuse. The fuse is intended to protect the unit from a polarity reversal on the battery power wires and shorts caused by water immersion. Replacement fuses can be purchased from most automobile supply stores.

SCO Options

Futaba Connectors

 

SCO Option

The standard receiver connector is similar to the Hitec "D" style connector (shown above on the left). These connectors will plug into just about any type of receiver, but lack the key tab found on Futaba connectors. The genuine Futaba connector is available as an option on the Smartcontrol for a slightly higher price.

 

24 Volt Option

 

SCO Option

The SCO-10 and SCO-20 controls are available in a 24 volt version.

 

Optional Battery Connector

SCO Case

SCO Option

Factory installed battery connector for standard NI-Mh or NI-CAD packs.
