The tio Storm19 is a brushed speed control designed specifically for use in RC model cars.
It has a 19 turn motor limit, what this means is that you can use any, DC brushed 540 motor, or smaller, as long as the number of turns on that motor are 19 or more. For example, a 10 turn motor is not appropriate but a 35 turn motor would be.
The tio speed controllers have been designed around an intelligent bridge switching processor, this allows far greater control of the motor in drive and braking modes, resulting in much better speed control and fully symmetrical performance with no delay in forwards or reverse.
The intelligent braking/reverse software is a life saver for gearboxes and drive trains, it actually monitors the speed and electrical characteristics of the motor whilst in use and automatically stops the motor turning before activating reverse! Giving instant reverse without any excess damage to the RC models drive train!
The tio Storm19 also includes, built in Li-Po cut off protection, this monitors the battery packs voltage, and prevents them from dropping below safe levels, it can be programmed to run on NiCAD/NiMH cells or Li-Po cells with one easy press of the set button.
Another feature of the tio Storm19 is the two different running modes. Reverse on and Reverse off, in effect you are getting two speed controllers for the price of one, a reversible and a forwards only!
The tio Storm19 is a becoming a very popular choice, this is due mainly to all the features that are included, such as a built in failsafe, 100% proportional, fine throttle control in both directions, and motor stall protection, which is a feature that cannot be overlooked when getting stuck in the long grass or undergrowth is a definate possibility. Not to forget that the tio range of speed controllers are all completely 100% waterproof and designd to work in the wet so even the traditional UK weather doesn't have to stop you having fun!
