How hot should an ESC get?

How hot should an ESC get?

But there are ESCs that can work just fine with hotter temperatures. For example, Castle Creations ESCs can handle a sustained 70-82°C and will have issues around 100°C but most ESCs will have lower tolerance levels and may have issues above 80°C.

What is ESC temperature?

The ICE controllers are designed for a maximum “normal” operational temperature of 120C — that’s about 250F. But in general, we recommend an operating temperature of under 180F — that will ensure that your setup won’t get too close to the “shutdown” temperature. Thanx!

What temp should RC motor be?

Your motor should be fine. If you didn’t feel its performance drop off during your run, you didn’t damage anything—but, you are correct to be wary of overheating. Avoid raising the motor’s temperature past 170°F; any hotter, and you run the risk of damaging the rotor’s magnets.

Is it normal for ESC to get hot?

it just starts getting warmer and warmer. If the ESC is getting hot after the battery is plugged in with no throttle applied, then it’s bad and needs to be sent in for repair or replacement.

What temperature should a brushless motor run?

160 is generally considered the maximum safe temp for BL motors, some brands can and do run hotter. Older LRP motors were fine at 180 and I’ve seen sensorless Castle motors run fine at 200. Performance gains over 150. Negligible at best in most cases.

How do I keep my RC motor cool?

There are a few things you can do to keep your motors running cool.

  1. Give it air! One of the easiest ways to make sure your motor stays cool is to make sure it is properly ventilated and getting enough air.
  2. Fan it!
  3. Sink the heat!
  4. Bearings in mind.

Why is my brushless motor getting hot?

Re: My brushless motor is getting very hot after few minutes running. In your case, it probably means, your motor does not reach enough rpm to work efficiently.

What should the ESC be on a motor?

Esc should be 120 or less IMO……..batts are on the high end at 110*. You need to gear down several teeth on the pinion. If you are at 21 try 18 etc………… Most companies recommend no higher than 200 deg on the motor.

What should the temperature of an RC motor be?

How Hot Should an RC Motor Get The temperature RC motors can get to will vary a lot depending on various conditions. Normally electric RC motors will operate in the 80°F to 130°F range. However, in particularly hot days and on closed tracks that are not temperature controlled RC motors can easily exceed 150°F.

What happens when a RC motor overheats?

Overheating can cause the RC motor to fail, have poor performance, or even cause a short and damage or destroy the ESC and the batteries. Some motors may send their temperatures back to the ESC, and if they are overheating, the ESC will shut the motor down, which could prevent damage due to overheating.

Is the ESC on a Traxxas VXL 3s?

The ESC is the Traxxas Velineon VXL 3S with the Velineon 3500 brushless motor. Are these temps ok or should I change gearing to keep the motor cooler?
