Pro-160 / 360 Radio Control Failsafe

When using the Pro-160 / 360 with radio control it is necessary to consider the various failsafe scenarios that can occur.

The Pro-160 / 360 will detect the following

  • A break in the connection between itself and the radio receiver.
  • If the signal from the receiver goes out of specification e.g. if the receiver fails and gives an invalid signal [outside of 1mS – 3mS pulse width].

In both these cases the controller will ramp down to zero.

To guard against radio transmitter failure or out of range situations it will be necessary to configure the failsafe facility in the radio receiver, instructions for this will be in your radio receiver user guide.
