This page has information supporting our LGG-1
LGG-1 "Li-Poly Gas
The LGG-1 is a battery monitoring device that
indicates the present charge level in a battery pack. It displays
the battery pack's
charge condition using 3 LEDs that flash four easy to see and understand
messages: Good, Low, Caution, Damage.
It does this by continuously sampling the battery voltage and averaging
the data so that the true condition of the pack is displayed.
Uses state of the art microcomputer and advanced digital signal processing
Great for both helicopters and airplanes !
3S Pack Voltage
- Works for both 2S and 3S
- Auto-detects pack type on power-up
- Highly visible with super bright LEDs
- Easy to use
- DSP technology
- Weighs less than 3 grams
- Provides peace of mind and assurance
The LGG-1 is designed to operate
with 2S and 3S Li-poly batteries only. It connects to the
flight battery on the ESC
side of the connector. This is done by soldering the positive (red)
and negative (black) wires to the same connector used by the ESC.
The LGG-1 should be mounted on the side of the model with double sided
tape or a tywrap where it can be easily seen when doing a flyby.
During power up the LGG-1
determines the type of flight battery automatically. It reads the
packs voltage and if it is above 8.8 volts
it sets the
packs type (voltage range) as a 3s pack and if below 8.8 volts, a 2S pack.
The LGG-1 will indicate the choice it made by flashing all 3 LEDs for a 3S
and just 2 LEDs for the 2S during power-up.
You should verify that the pack type is correct each
and every time for safety. A defective or
discharged 3S battery can be detected as a 2S inadvertently.
Using the LGG-1
The LGG-1 requires that you see the
LED's for it to be of any value. This is best done by doing a flyby
every so often to check the battery
After some time you will develop a "feel" for the condition of your batteries
based on the flight time. The feedback given by the LGG-1
confirm your intuition and provide assurance.
