3 x esc on one receiver
« on: October 21, 2016, 10:34:04 PM »

Hi so my ballast tanks I have sorted and understood .
But now I'm on to bow/stern thruster
  So 1 receiver 1 esc for motor , 1 esc for bow thruster and 1 for stern thruster
 Do I cut the red receiver wire on 2 of 3 the esc?
The thrusters will be on 1 battery the motor on the other.
 Is that right or any other way to do the same job ? Thanks

You may need them 'intact' at some time in the future. This shows a method which doesn't involve cutting the wires. http://www.action-electronics.co.uk/pdfs/Disabling%20BEC%20ESCs.pdf

I remove the red wire from a short extension lead and connect that into the esc.  Then swapping things out is straight forward.

Give that man an "A" and a yellow star.  Perhaps somebody like Component Shop might slip something like that into their inventory.

Q.
Just how difficult is it to pull a brass pin/socket out of a plug, given an illustration of the process?
A.
Nearly as difficult as it is to put it back, it seems.

Each to their own.

It is not about how difficult one method is, it is about which method is the quickest and simplest.

Th extension lead would be handy for testing purposes when swapping things around,
but in a permanent installation you are just adding an extra connection/failure point
into the circuit.
Just my take on the subject.

For that to be the case then someone else would have had to remove the red wire from the plug moulding of the extension lead first, surely? And then you need to make two plugged connections instead of one...
Ned has a valid point about introducing potential failure; the more connectors the more chance of failure.
