Kontronik Power Jive 120+ HV Brushless ESC (Version 11)
The difference between the PowerJive and the HeliJive
Kontronik Power Jive 120+ HV ESC Overview:
The Jive Series of ESCs offer integrated shock resistant housing made from a specific poly amide protects the JIVE ESC from mechanical damage and makes it waterproof. The plastic material has been developed especially for injection molding of electronic parts without tensions or stress for the electronic components
The name 120+ HV means that the Jive is capable of putting out 120 Amps continuous current right out of the box with zero modification. The huge cooling plate transfers all of the heat from the internals with great efficiency. With decent external cooling it is possible to increase the output of the Jive considerably. Installing a heatsink onto the Jive's built-in cooling plate will boost the cooling and help keep it running cool.
Kontronik ESC's have a legendary reputation for having the most sophisticated & consistent properties of any ESC on the market. The built-in governor mode is simply the best ESC governor available - As long as your motor and battery are up to the task, a Kontronik ESC will govern the head speed flawlessly. Another amazing feature of Kontronik ESC's is their ability to automatically program themselves to mate with the motor that they are controlling. This guarantees the highest power and efficiency possible all the time, every time.
Further highlights are waiting inside the new JIVE ESC. One of which is the unbelievably strong BEC which is adjustable between 5V and 6V with ProgCARD II or ProgDISC. It offers 5A continuous BEC current with 15A in peak. That's enough for all spectacular flight figures even in helicopters. To provide this power the JIVE ESCs have two PARALLEL BEC output jacks. It is necessary to use both BEC output jacks if you are using this ESC with high current servos, most specifically in a flybarless application.
Due to a second processor it was possible to exceed the well-known JAZZ Software with some new leading features. For example the JIVE alarms the pilot after the flight, when it was used in overload regions in order to prevent a later malfunction.
