The PERS is a very tiny receiver-actuated on/off switch. It plugs into one of your receiver channels and lets you turn a device on/off using a stick, switch, or knob on your transmitter. The PERS performs the operation equivalent to a servo moving a mechanical switch back and forth, but in a much smaller package, and with no moving parts! The PERS will operate with any receiver running on 2-6V and can switch on/off pretty much any device up to 3A of current. The PERS is perfect for lights, glow plug drivers, motors, smoke pumps, rocket igniters, solenoids, relays, and whatever else you can think up. Wired correctly, it could be used to trigger cameras or other electronic devices. The PERS weighs just 0.3g, not including the 6" output wires (if left full-length these wires weigh another 0.3g).
If you don't mind doing a bit of soldering, the PERS can be easily reversed and assigned a fail-safe setting. The PERS was designed to use the power from your receiver battery, but it can also be configured to use a separate battery, up to 20V. Take a look at the PERS instructions (link below) for reverse/fail-safe settings and wiring diagrams.
The PERS is available with 4 different types of servo connectors to accommodate the various micro receivers available today. Scroll down to view the different options and cart buttons. Packing Note: PERS's ordered in 1pc quantities will come in individual packages. 3 and 10pcs quantities may be supplied in one package with one set of instructions.
Choose your connector option:
PERS with standard Universal/JR servo connector
This model comes with a standard universal/JR servo lead which will plug into any brand receiver which uses standard servo connectors. The servo lead is 3" of 28AWG wire in Futaba colors, but with a universal connector.
PERS with 1.00mm servo connector for Spektrum AR6400 receivers
This model comes with a 1.00mm servo lead that will plug into the Spektrum AR6400 and any receiver with compatible connectors. The servo lead is 1" of 30AWG wire in JR colors. The PERS is ten times lighter than the AR6400 receiver so it won't noticably affect the weight of your model. In one of the images below you can see the PERS plugged into an AR6400 receiver controlling a high-brightness LED.
PERS with 1.25mm servo connector for Futaba R616FFM micro receivers
This model comes with a 1.25mm servo lead that will plug into the Futaba R616FFM receiver and any receiver with compatible connectors. The servo lead is 1" of 30AWG wire in Futaba colors. The PERS is 20 times lighter than the R616FFM receiver so it won't noticably affect the weight of your model.
PERS with 1.50mm servo connector for Spektrum AR6300 receivers
This model comes with a 1.50mm servo lead that will plug into the Spektrum AR6300 and any receiver with compatible connectors. The servo lead is 1" of 30AWG wire in JR colors. The PERS is six times lighter than the AR6300 receiver so it won't noticeably affect the weight of your model.
