WHAT ARE

THE OPTIMAL SETTINGS FOR YOUR MOSFET WHEN USING A WARHEAD MOTOR.

 INTRODUCTION

We have spent a significant amount of time designing our motor to be compatible with as many third party mosfets and electronic trigger units as possible. For optimal performance with our motor we recommend using the following settings across all brands of ETU and mosfets alike. Please refer to each section below when setting up your AEG with our motor. For more information or to check compatibility please send us an email on info@warheadindustries.com or direct message us on Facebook.com/warheadindustries.

 


BATTERY PROTECTION / LOW VOLTAGE DETECTION

SET TO: OFF 

The warhead motor actually has on board low voltage cut off and over amp draw protection as standard. This is the same for all of our motors. Low voltage cut off is set as 3.1 volts per cell and is designed to work intelligently. This will mean that the continuous voltage of the cell must be under 3.1 volts for the cut off to kick in. There is no audible indication of this occurring on the motor. The motor will simply stop working once the voltage of the cell reaches 3.1 volts or less. At this stage you should change your battery for a freshly charged one.

OVER AMP DRAW PROTECTION

The motor also has inbuilt over amp protection. This will cut in to prevent damage to the electronics if a surge occurs. In the event of a gearbox jam or seizure the motor is designed to stop functioning to protect itself. This cut off period will last for around 5 seconds. After this period the motor will become active. It is very important that if you think you have had a gearbox failure you do not continue to pull the trigger after this period. This will result in damage to the electronics of the motor occurring. 


CYCLE DETCTION 

SET TO: ON 

As with a brushed motor cycle detection should be activated if there is an option to do so. Tis will result in optimum performance between the motor and the mosfet. Ensuring that your AEG cycles correctly when the trigger is pulled.  


PRE-COCKING 

SET TO: OFF 

For best results pre-cocking should be set to off as this can interfere with the braking cycle of the motor and create undesired results.it is possible to use a small amount of pre-cocking in some cases but for the best uninterrupted operation we recommended turning this setting to off.    


ACTIVE BRAKING 

SET TO: PWM INCREASING IN 20% INCREMENTS 

The ESC (Speed controller) that is built into the back of the motor already assists the motor to stop and start. When combined with high levels of active braking this can result in undesired operation or stuttering. The best way to apply the correct amount of active braking to your AEG when using our motor is to start with this setting set to off. Check performance and if you require active braking. If you decide that active braking is required we would suggest using the PWM setting and increasing the percentage applied up in 20% increments. Test on each setting to decide which works best. In most cases you will not need any more than around 20%.
