Our friends at RC Mania reported on a “cool” connector which connects your motor and ESC. This connector, called RME, is made by RCPROPLUS, is available in 3 sizes, and in 3 colors. Thanks RC Mania for sharing this information.
Get the details of this “cool” connector by clicking through.

You might pay attention to the heat of the brushless motor, may also pay attention to the heat of the ESC, but you have not noticed the connection between the connector (Gold plug) is also a need cooling?
After measurement, the motor, ESC connector in the circumstances of the use of traditional shrink film, the measured surface temperature of about 60 degrees, which means that the internal gold plug temperature must be above 60 degrees.
If the motor, ESC connector in the coating does not live in the circumstances, gold plug the measured temperature is about 40 degrees, 20 degrees of difference between this, if the heat is a loss, lowering the temperature it can be improve the efficiency of energy transfer.
RCPROPLUS before launch motor of a x4 connector, see http://www.rcmania.hk/2011/09/16313
The face of increasing electric power demand model, the motor connector must break the improvement, in addition to have a different size, a good cooling effect is more important, so RCPROPLUS once again launched an amazing product “cooling-type RME connector. ”
A …. Excuse me, what is the RME?
Take this opportunity to explain, because the connector products launched by RCPROPLUS more and more, it must be a way to identify more easily differentiate their products, see below, the RME “RCPROPLUS Motor to the ESC, if the battery and ESC connector, that is, the REB is “RCPROPLUS ESC to Battery”, so you understand?
Well, after explain to believe that you all understand, return to the topic!
First Photo of the open version of red, yellow and blue wavy plastic connector is RCPROPLUS latest cooling type connector, the wave pattern is directly through the air, gold plug for the most direct cooling effect. The plastic parts imported from Japan PC impact resistant plastic, high temperature of 300 degrees, and in particular the use of transparent plastic material, it is certainly not the inferior secondary regrind.
Is nothing more than special buckle shaped gold plug the ▼ RCPROPLUS biggest selling point, of course this heat REM have to extend the excellent design, this gold plug plug tight card, contact area, which the RC Mania is has been introduced many times, I believe you are no stranger.
▼ wavy lines is actually cooling holes, even if no additional heat is also better than the seal better.
▼ weight, we make a comparison, take one of the most commonly used plug in gold 8mm width of the heat shrink tube, cut into roughly the same size, unilateral 0.3g, also said that both sides add up to about 0.5 ~ 0.6g.
▼ to take a 4mm gold plug / 12AWG wire with REM plastic sleeve, actually only 0.4g, which also lighter than the two heat-shrinkable sleeve
▼ 6mm gold insert / 8AWG wire with plastic sleeve, bulky, of course, the weight, but only 1g the weight is.
▼ The thermally REM connector, a total of three sizes, from top to bottom and 6mm gold plug / 8AWG, 5mm gold plug / 10AWG, 4mm gold plug / 12AWG, different diameter, thickness to meet different needs.
▼ a REM has three colors, and transparent material, and you can see the sparkling gold plug.
Which a REM in the selection of the correct one? Reasons as should depend on the diameter of the ESC (ESC), the AWG wire size, the best situation is to make the selection in accordance with the ESC wire size, but different manufacturers use the ESC line thickness are not consistent, so here simply recommend everyone with how to provide you reference.
700 power directly above recommendations with 6mm gold plug / 8AWG
550 to 600 recommended 5mm gold plug / 10AWG
500 or the following recommendations with 4mm gold plug / 12AWG
Please pay close attention to this section connector will be published in the spring of 2012 Distribution
