The Powerbox-Systems Evolution has been for many years one of the most well known and most used powerboxes in large scale models.
The advantage that the Evolution always had was that being the first in the range or powerboxes, its cost is kept down yet still implementing most of the functions used by its top of the range counterparts.
This year 2010 Powerbox-Systems have updated the Evolution, including new heat disipators to assist with the cooling of the voltage regulators, as well as updating the styling of the Powerbox to fit in with the rest of their recently released products.
Even though it is the simplest powerbox offered by the company, it still has the capability to connect two lipos, six chanels to mix to 16 servo exits, as well as voltage regulation, signal amplifyers… It also includes LED”s that show the state of the lipos as well as additional external LED”s that light up in the case of a low votage in either of the batteries.
An advantage of this “simple” powerbox is that as it does not have adjustments for different parameters, it is very easy to install in the model, only needing to screw it in the model, connect the 6 receiver chanels to the “IN” sockets (connecting any additional servos directly to the receiver) and then connect the servos to the desired “OUT” sockets.
The adjustment of the servos therefore is simply made with the transmitter with the usual functions, such as End Point, Sub trim and Reverse.
I have been using and competing with the Powerbox-Systems Evolution for quite some time in my freestyle 2.60m – 2.70m planes and have been very happy with the results. Gaining also the peace of mind that all the servos are correctly powered and in the case of a servo shortcircuit that the powerbox would cut the servo off before causing damage to the receiver or plane.
