Matek's mini power distribution board (PDB) has been engineered to provide the highest possible performance and reliability in a 36*36mm, 4 layered PCB. The power hub distributes power from a battery pack to 4 ESCs, as well as providing regulated 5 and 12 volt DC power outputs for powering electronics such as a flight controller, camera, servos, video transmitter, LEDs, etc. Both BECs are compatible with 2-6S LiPo. The 5V BEC is rated at 3amps continuous and the 12V BEC can provide 2 amps continuous. The board has dedicated connections for a FPV camera and a FPV video transmitter (VTX), with solder jumpers that let you select their output voltage (5/12v). So you can use a 5v camera with a 12v VTX, or a 12v camera with a 12v VTX. The board is a standard 36mm sized PDB, so you can stack it cleanly with the CC3D, Naze and most other board type flight controllers. If you require a smaller PDB, Matek's micro PDB has all the functions of this PDB, except for the dedicated FPV connections.

Features:

  • Regulated 5V & 12V BEC outputs
  • Dedicated FPV camera & VTX connections
  • Output LED indicators & short circuit tolerant 
  • High quality 2oz copper, 4 layer PCB construction
  • Perfect for mini quads
  • 36x36mm with 30.5x30.5mm holes (stackable with Naze32, CC3D etc.)

About Power Distribution Boards (PDBs): A PDB is used to distribute power from the flight battery to the speed controllers (ESCs) and other auxiliaries. They make for a tidy and reliable installation. The alternative is a bird’s nest of cables back to the flight battery and a higher risk of bad connections over time, as connecting/disconnecting your battery will tugged on your wiring. Additionally if you need to replace an ESC you will have to cut into the wiring harness to detach it, with a PDB it's simply a case of unplugging/desoldering a connection. That said, if you are only wiring up a small quadcopter and space is tight, a wiring harness might be a better and lighter solution. Great consideration should be given to your power distribution, as any failure in the system will likely result in a loss of power to the motors. In this regard ensuring that your solution is able to handle the peak current draw from your electronics is top priority.
