UBEC 8A, 2-3 cells LiPo, selectable output voltage 5/6V


The 8A-UBEC is a switch-mode DC-DC regulator capable to deliver 8 - 15A.  

Input Voltage:     6 - 12V  (2 - 3 cells LiPo)
Output Voltage:  5 or 6V (manual selectable)
Output Current:  8A continuous, 15A maximum

This UBEC is very suitable for big fixed-wing aircrafts because it can supply a big current and it contains 2 output terminals towards the receiver for improved reliability. It also contains a battery capacity indicator (4 leds) and an on/off switch.

This UBEC can be used with a 2-3 cells LiPo battery pack.

Compared with the linear mode UBEC, the overall efficiency of the switching-mode BEC is much higher, so it can extend the working time of the receiver battery pack, and because a switch mode UBEC can significantly reduce the heat emission, it can avoid the loss of control caused by the over-heat problem which can happen with the linear mode UBEC.
