P180-NX Turbine Engine, 40 lbs Thrust, by JetCat
Now Features a Brushless Fuel Pump
The JetCat P180-NX, comprises not only an engine sided integrated brushless- and fully encapsulated fuel pump but also features a brushless starter / generator system. As the rotor of the brushless fuel pump is running in the fuel, the otherwise necessary shaft seals can be omitted. The starter / generator operates completely mechanical contact free to the turbine shaft. The coupling of starter to engine rotor is resistant to wear and dirt (no slippage of the starter clutch by oil/dirt, no O-ring wear possible).
- Compact outline and form factor
- Internal kerosene start
- Internal EGT sensor!
- Internal solenoids, only one fuel connection to the engine
- Internal brushless fuel pump
- Single wiring connection from ECU to engine
- New miniature/lightweight ECU V10.0
After starting the engine, the engine battery is recharged via the generator with high power. The engine side electronics controls the charging current / voltage. The optional JetCat BMS system can be used to also recharge the receiver batteries. In this configuration, the BMS-system ensures that the receiver batteries are always fully charged upon the next engine startup. The charging of the receiver batteries will continue until these are completely full, even if the RC-system of the model should have been powered down. Comes with everything you need to install into your plane.
Now Includes the ECU V10.0
The completely redesigned V10.0 ECU is three times smaller than the V6.0 ECU, yet has all its proven capabilities and more at a weight of only 26g!
The updated ECU comprises a high speed digital power bus for control and power supply of all engine peripherals (e.g. engine, fuel pump, solenoids, smoke pump, lighting systems, etc. ) with a minimum of wiring connections.
An on board precision pressure and ambient temperature sensor allows for optimum engine control, independent to environmental conditions.
Optional JetCat Mini-GSU
The JetCat Mini-GSU is an optional miniature Ground Support Unit (GSU). It comprises a 2x16 character alphanumeric backlit LCD display and 10 control keys.
Function wise it can be used as a 100% replacement for our normal GSU. Its small form factor and weight makes it ideally suited for permanent installation in the model.
Connection to ECU`s up to Version 6.0 is via a 8-pin miniature flatcable connector directly to the LED-I/O interface. Connection to ECUs from Version 10.0 is via a 6-pin miniature flatcable directly to the ECU or the LED-I/O interface or 8-pin flat cable to JetCat I/O-interface with charging option.
