LVC on Phoenix 10

Hello,

I'm probablly doing something wrong and maybe you can provide some insight.

I cannot get the LVC on my phoenix 10 to kick in. I've set the voltage for 9.5, 9.3 and 9.0 and it still easily goes down to 8.8 and even sometimes 8.4. I vary the throttle (I think I remember that having something to do with it too). I also tried to use the older ESC software (the non-beta version).

Any ideas?

soft cutoff.

You can usually tell because the power lowers slightly and the sound the motor makes (pitch) changes alot.

Plus on the watt meter the volts seems to stay right around the programmed cutoff (dipping slightly below but not much).

My thought was that it was going into 'soft cut-off" but you sound like your on top of that.
I'd call the CC boys and see what they have to say.
You have done everything I would have.
Good Luck,

Thanks for the info Don.

Just to fill in some blanks.


I'm running a Fengau motor on an IPS A drive gerabox
3s Gen 2 TP 480's and a prolite 480 pack.

I was actually suprised the prolite pack dropped as much voltage under load as it did. The 2000 and 2100 prolite packs don't drop voltage nearly as much.
