The Castle Creations Battery Eliminator Circuit is a little device that eliminates the need for a receiver and servo battery pack. It draws higher voltage from the motor battery pack and drops it to a voltage level that is suitable for your receiver and servos. This is required in applications which draw high power for multiple servos or use more than 3S motor packs, as most ESCs with linear BECs are not designed for these applications.

Current Output: Peak: 10 amps
Continuous: <12 volts input = 7 amps*
<24 volts input = 5 amps*
Output Voltage: Output 5.1 volts out of the package, user may set output voltage from 4.8 to 9 using the Castle Link (sold separately).
Input Voltage: 5v to 25.2v (2S to 6S LiPo)
Length: 0.6” (15mm)
Width: 0.4” (10mm)
Height: 1.2” (30mm)
Weight: 0.4 oz (11 grams)

* Ratings are determined with a 5mph airflow on the BEC. Servo connectors are not rated for current in excess of 5 amps. Users are encouraged to replace the connectors if more than 5 amp currents are anticipated.

CC BEC/SPEKTRUM Compatibility Instructions:
Castle has learned of a slight incompatibility of the CC BEC with the SPEKTRUM AR 6100, 6200, 7000, JR 790 ScanSelect, and JR 2100 ScanSelect Synthesized receivers. There is a very easy work around for our customers who already have the CC BEC and we are making modifications to the components of all new CC BECs that are built from Nov. 1, 2007, forward.

The simple explanation is that the CC BEC, like most Castle products, is designed to be USB linkable via the signal wire on the servo connector. As part of that, the CC BEC will pull the signal wire to ground unless it is sending a signal on that line. Nothing out of the ordinary with this. Similarly, the Spektrum team designed these receivers to look for a grounded signal pin on the battery port in order to initiate binding. Nothing strange there either. Castle does something similar with our Berg receivers. The problem is that the two designs result in the CC BEC triggering the receiver's binding mode immediately upon power up. We have redesigned the CC BEC to facilitate the USB activities without initiating the binding mode.

For those of you with the affected CC BECs and Spektrum receivers there are at least three solutions:
  • Remove the orange signal wire from the CC BEC RX power lead before you plug the lead into the battery port on the receiver.
  • Plug the entire/intact lead from the CC BEC into any other port on the receiver.
  • Use a "Y" connector to plug the entire CC BEC lead into any port other than the BATT port on the receiver.

  • If you are unsatisfied with any of the above solutions, please simply send your CC BEC to Castle for upgrade.

    Please note that this incompatibility will be immediately apparent. There are no known issues after the system is successfully powered up.
