APD 200F3x ESC



The improved F_Series 200F3[X] ESCs build upon our trusted ARM 32-bit architecture. The V2 release introduces a number of highly requested features into the product range, including configuration options and additional drive modes. The 200F3[X]v2 ESCs are drop-in replaceable to 200F3[X] units. As before, existing features include PWM-frequency dithering and Active Phase-Current Demagnetisation, allowing for smooth control with virtually all powertrain combinations with peak power outputs of up to 18 kW.

* Continuous current ratings are at a 100% throttle duty cycle. Continuous rating is defined as max sustained current at 100% throttle for 60 seconds with 33 m/s of airflow.


Peak power ratings defined at 100% throttle, where bus current = phase current. Requires proper sizing of motor to load. 

(*) Continuous amps defined as amperage sustainable for 180 seconds with adequate cooling to keep ESC at or below 115C

(**) Burst amps defined as amperage sustainable without damage to controller for a period of 5 (five) seconds.  Burst should not be encountered again until ESC has returned to normal temperature
