Msonik-3 Marine Eco
« on: March 16, 2008, 02:16:55 PM »

Does anyone have a copy of the set-up instructions for the Msonik-3 Marine Eco ESC.

I have the set-up details for most other Msonik Escs but I am having trouble setting this particular one up.

Help!!!

I have, but no scanner, so here goes.

Set-up Procedure
1  Plug the ESC into receiver, Ensure plug is fitted with the white/orange wire facing inward to the receiver label. Modify plug if necessary.
2   Plug the servo plug into the receiver.
3   Connect the yellow wire bullet connector to positive of motor.
4   Connect blue wire bullet connector to negative on the motor.
5   Disconnect the propeller coupling (if possible) to prevent prop turning during set up.
6   Switch on transmitter.
7   Plug the ESC into battery ensuring polarity correct and within 2 seconds momentarily press the "SET" button. The neutral position is stored.
8   The Green LED should now flash. Push the throttle forward to the point where you want maximum speed to be and press the "SET" button again. High piont is now stored.
NB if the greed LED continues to flash you may be trying to set high point too close to neutral position or you need to operate servo reverse on transmitter. In this case disconnect battery and start again from step 7.
9   The red LED should now flash. Pull back throttle to where you want maximum reverse to be, then press "SET" button again, the reverse point is now stored.
10 your ESC is now set up and ready for use. The inbuilt memory will remember these positions even when you disconnect the battery. When you reconnect battery the ESC will give you a "Window" of 2 seconds in which you can enter a new set-up. After this time it will default to the original settings.
NB   A poorly set up or worn motor may consume excess power causing interference, dumping or thermal overload of the ESC, Don't be too quick to blame the ESC.

Phew

Thanks Shipmate, you are a STAR.

I thought the set up was a bit different from the current units but could not remember the details.

ESC now working correctly.

Thanks again.

I have a further question regarding the Msonik-3 Marine Eco.

Does anybody know if it is suitable for a 12V system? Not having a data sheet I don't want to burn it out.

I understand some of the Mtroniks Escs only are only usable up to 9.6V. I have been known to be wrong though. :)
