Charlie Suangka of Novak Electronics:
a bit of testing with "multiple" power cap trans
modules on the GTB and found that 2 in parallel is good for
reducing cap temps quite a bit, and slightly reducing ESC temps.
I know, MORE caps, great right..... Its not necessary, but it
does help. Any help is a good thing.”
Below is our
suggested method for installing two Novak
Trans-Cap Modules in parallel on the GTB
1) Carefully cut
the heatshrink off of the two Trans-Cap Modules.
2) Unsolder the output wires from each capacitor's circuit board.
3) Position the two capacitors next to each other as shown in
the picture above with a piece of durable double-sided tape in
between (for insulation).
4) Solder a section of 16gauge wire connecting the positive (+)
of each capacitor; solder another section of 16gauge wire
connecting the negative (-) of each capacitor.
5) Splice a section in the middle of each of the wires'
insulation to expose the wire inside.
6) Solder a piece of 16gauge wire from the middle of the
positive (+) capacitor wire to the battery positive (+) on the
ESC; solder another piece of 16gauge wire from the middle of the
negative (-) capacitor wire to the battery negative (-) on the
ESC. It is ideal that these 2 output wires be equal in length.
As shown in the
picture above, the dual Trans-Cap can be relatively compact; it
actually takes up only a little more room than the standard
Trans-Cap Module, and it is low enough to fit under the T2'007
upper deck. The terminals on the capacitors can also act as
convenient areas for soldering cooling fan wires!
