When Reliability Is Critical And Only The Best Will Do, The PDB_500 Will Distribute Power Efficiently At Over 25kW!
Advance Power Drive is an Australian brand that designs and develops high-end ESCs and PDBs for the military and commercial applications. Now they have brought their expertise to the FPV racer market with a range of products to suit 5" to X-Class.
The APD PDB500 is a power distribution board designed for high voltage and high current applications. It consists of 8 layers of heavy copper to sustain maximum current demand whilst dissipating minimal heat. This PDB can sustain up to 125A continuous to each ESC leg. Also features 12V 3Amp and 5V 3Amp regulators with a maximum of 14S (60V) input.
Signal and telemetry lines are sandwiched between the Negative (GND) layers to shield them from switching noise at high power levels. Negative (GND) layers on top to shield the Flight Controller from switching noise.
Furthermore, it has double sided main input power pads which can be soldered or bolted to. It allows for flight controller mounting with standard 30.5mm x 30.5mm hole spacing. Solder tabs extend off the PCB to allow for thermal relief to make soldering easier.
Manufactured using ISOLA 185HR high-performance dielectric glass fiber to sustain continuous high-temperature scenarios.
Rest assured, your solder tabs won’t fail, even with 500A loads!
