New trigger unit for up to 6S applications and for DJI Inspire 1 and DJI Inspire 2!

Built in 5V power output for receiver.

When a launch signal is received from the aircraft's receiver, trigger conducts power to the launcher from the flight battery or a dedicated parachute battery. Fuse heats rapidly and breaks, releasing the piston after only 0,2 seconds from command.

Trigger is designed to work in the most demanding environments for maximum reliability. PCB is very well protected against vibrations.

Trigger comes with 30 cm cables and un-soldered XT60 connectors. Wires can be shortened for better fit.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Parachute battery: 2S - 6S
  • Receiver voltage range: 4.9 V - 6.1 V (if internal supply is not in use)
  • Receiver power supply: Voltage 5V
  • Continuous current 0.5A (with safety factor 2)
  • Max. current continuous 1A (component limit)
  • Max peak current 2A (point where supply will be compromised)
  • Fuse release time with 6S battery approx. 50ms, current approx 80A
  • Receiver wire length: 15 cm / 5.9 in
  • Weight (30cm wires): 66g / 2.3 oz. Half of the weight is wires.
  • Dimensions: 5,4 x 3,2 x 1.2 cm / 2,1 x 1,2 x 0,47 in
  • EMC tested

DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND THE MOST DEMANDING ENVIRONMENTS

The trigger is protected against moisture and touch. All electronics and solders are covered by dipping the unit into liquid rubber. The coating protects against vibration and external elements, but keeps the unit very lightweight.

Our tests cover underwater scenarios, +90 °C (194 °F) temperature with 100% relative humidity, as well as -20 °C freezing conditions.

The circuit board reliability is established on multiple factors. Components are soldered through double-sided gold-plated board with brass bushings. It is very unlikely to have poor connection between the component and circuit board, even in a vibrating faulty copter.

THE HIGHEST QUALITY COMPONENTS AND MANUFACTURING

Main components regulator and capacitors are from quality manufacturers Texas Instruments and Panasonic. Each Trigger is manually inspected by an electronics engineer and tested by ejecting real armed parachute launcher.

DESIGNED WITH THE HIGHEST RELIABILITY IN MIND

Trigger is rated for single parachute launcher in normal use. However we have test shot with over stress several times up to 4 x launchers simultaneously and single launcher up to 8S.
