This section of the guide outlines the various configurable elements of the UHV and HV Pro through the configuration tool, along with their default factory settings. All settings are persistent between ESC power cycles.
The type of motor that is connected to the ESC (small or large based on kV), and the desired direction the motor will be operated with.
The speed the motor will spool up to immediately after arming the ESC.
Increased timing advance can reduce ESC running temperatures with some motors. The recommended setting is auto.
Forces the output frequency to the motor. Recommended is auto setting enabled where possible.
Acceleration and braking rates for the ESC, which are applied on every change of throttle input to the ESC.
The upper current limit the ESC can reach on the input from the power supply. Configurable from 150 to 400 Amps, depending on ESC model.
The upper current limit the ESC can reach on the output to the motor. Configurable from 150 to 400 Amps, depending on ESC model.
The temperature limit for the ESC as measured internally. Configurable to ranges from 75 to 130 degrees Celsius.
The lower limit for the power supply input, to avoid under-voltage of battery packs.
The response to going over/under the preset limits, with separate responses for different limits. Options are None, Hard Shutdown, Gradual Shutdown, 75% Power Limit, 50% Power Limit and 25% Power Limit.
Enable or Disable logging of data to the internal memory of the ESC.
Adjust the input ranges of the PWM endpoints, can either be manually adjusted or automatically.
Toggle the regenerative braking functionality of the ESC. Enabled results in the return of power up to 10% of the maximum current capacity of the ESC (model dependant). Disabled results in no return of power to the supply, but reduces the thermal performance of the ESC. This must be disabled if running the ESC on a power supply that cannot absorb power.
ESC will automatically add throttle when voltage drops occur to help maintain a linear throttle response.
Enable or Disable the motor beep status tones.
Depending on firmware supplied by APD, the input type can be forced between listed protocols.
