Terminology

Ultrasonic ESC is the ESC block which switch FET at ultrasonic speed, make motor rotation extreme  smooth and quite. start voltage of ESC can also be adjusted for different type of motor.

 

Carefree reversing: Unlike some other control board, there is no need for TK series board to delay before being commanded to reverse, can go from full forward immediately to full reverse or vice versa
 

EPM ( ESC/PWM module) is peripheral which can be switched to ESC or PWM mode, allows the user to drive brushed motor or servo motor, in ESC mode, ESC port is enabled, can be used to drive brushed motor, In PWM mode, PWM port is enabled to driver servo motor, sound effect stopped when servo motor reach end point,

RealRecoil allows you to recreate real gun barrel recoil movement with single & cheap servo motor

 

Recoil Solenoid allows you to recreate MG/Auto cannon barrel recoil movement with Solenoid

 

V2 Smoker driver smoker fan/compressor speed is proportional to engine RPM and Load

 

V2  Mixer turning is achieved by reducing track speed and also increase opposite track speed to achieve smoother turning.

 

Remote Volume Control audio volume can be controlled by radio transmitter, only available on S.BUS version

 

External audio input allows you to feed audio signal from other source for 2nd speaker port ( CN5A )

 

Adjustable Low Battery threshold cut off ESC output when battery voltage is lower than threshold, and threshold can be adjusted according to type and cells

 

Gun Barrel Stabilizer(GBS) is an module in G2 variant. When GBS is turned on, it detects the tank movement and compensate gun rotation and elevation to stabilize the gun automatically. When GBS is turned on, operator can still change gun elevation and direction under GBS compensation, Click the following link for more details

Install a switch (for example, HL Smoke Unit Switch Cable) to SW connector( Switch Cable Port)  as power switch.

 

HL tank already have power switch on battery cable path, so additional switch is not required, to use a jumper to short pins in SW Cable port or connect a switch cable and keep it switched on.

 

When high current track motors are used, such as 400/480 motor, power switch on battery cable path will not be able to handle, connect a switch cable (for example, HL Smoke Unit Switch Cable) to this port as power switch.

TK80 board has 3.0A BEC( Battery eliminate circuit), can power receiver through channel cables, no additional battery is needed for receiver

 

Set trimmers on transmitter to center position,

Connect TK80 to battery or power adaptor( See FAQ )

Switch on TK80 board and transmitter,

Send different commands( see control mode diagram) to test each function, if board not functions accordingly, adjust trimmer on transmitter.

Done!

 

S.BUS Setup

Transmitter:

1.Turn on Transmitter i6s and enter setting function, go to system->output mode, then set Serial to S.BUS

2. Enter aux channel setup, set channel 5 to SwA, channel 6 to SwD, channel 7 to SwB, channel 8 to SwC, channel 9 to VrA and channel 10 to VrB

3. Go to system->stick mode, then set to M1 mode

4. Go to end points page, set end point to 100% for every channel.

 

Receiver and control board:

1. Plug connector with S.BUS label on it into S.BUS port on receiver.

 

Variation:

1. Connect servo to CH9 or CH10 port on receiver and to see if servo arm is in center position when VrA or VrB is released, if not, contact transmitter vendor.

 

HL Gun Elevation and AirSoft Correction

Before V5.3 version, Elevation and AirSoft sharing same driving H/W In HL original design, so the gun elevation can only be controlled  in one direction, if you missed the angle you want, you will need to wait a full cycle of gun elevation, to correct this problem, we add dedicate AirSoft control h/w to TK20 board. the following shows you how to correct HL tank and get two direction elevation.

 

The picture below is original wiring in HL tank:

Modify it as the following:

Green box in the diagram above represent the small PCB in tank, small  red, black, blue ... orange in it represent the wire color.

1. Disconnect red wire between safety switch and gun barrel elevation unit.

2. Change original 3P connector to 4P type, add additional wire from safety switch to 4P connector,

3. Add 4P connector HUL-8P PCB connector

4. AirSoft unit is now controlled by red-black pair, gun barrel unit is controlled by red-white pair. and you can connect 8P connector to CN9 on TK-18/20 with original cable.

 

Here is a video of airsoft setup for Taigen Tank

 

HL Tail Light Correction

Tail Light in HL tank is wire to MG light, so the Tail Light flashes when MG firing, this is very funny to us, to correct this problem and make tail light to be controlled with Headlight, please refer to the picture below and rewire it.

1. Remove 2 pin plug from PCB, twist angled pins to opposite side,

2. Connect Tail Light LED + pin(  Red wire of Tail Light cable) to CN9.3 pin( Yellow wire )

3. Connect a 200 Ohm resistor between 2-P connector pin and CN9.2 pin(Green), a SMD type resistor is used in this example to save space.

Proportional Smoker driver and Heater pre-heating

A conventional smoker include two major parts, Heater and Fan/Pump, Heater heats oil to generate smoke, and Fan/Pump pushes smoke from smoker unit, on a stock HL Smoker, heater and pump motor are wired together and driven together as shown in the picture below.

TK80 is capable to control Fan/Pump and Heater separately to achieve more realistic smoke effect, it starts to heat heater to generate smoke right after engine start command is given and smoke accumulated in the chamber, at the moment of engine start, it drive pump/Fan at full speed to create burst of smoke like real engine, then it drive pump/Fan proportionally according to the throttle, when engine stop command is given, it stops fan/pump and heater heating.

 

To control Fan/Pump and Heater separately, fan/pump and heater wires on stock HL smoker need to be separated also and connect TK80 individually, simply unsolder heater wire( red-red ) from PCB on smoker and connect to CN10 port, pump motor connect to CN12(original black-red wire), also connect a switch to switch port CN11 to switch on/off heater control from TK80. video below shows a modified Hen long Smoker driven by TK80

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64Dkc136oWY

 

If  separate control is not needed, just connect stock Hen long Smoker to CN12, TK80 will also drive HL smoker proportionally according to the throttle.

 

Tank Personalization( Patent Pending)

Settings of TK series board can only be changed when TK board is in programming mode, and by Configuration IR REMOTE as IR command transmitter, and TAMIYA battle unit(TBU),  Heng-Leog battle unit(HBU), or our programming line as IR command receiver.

 

 

Steps to change settings:

STEP 1: Turn power off, Turn power off, Turn power off,

STEP 2: Plug programming line/TBU/HBU through TBU/HBU base into CN2 Infrared Port ,  

STEP 2: Install a jumper to J2 as shown below, to tell TK board to enter programming mode, Turn power on,

STEP 4:Refer to function table listed below, point Configuration IR REMOTE to TBU/HBU/Programming line receiver, and press the button of setting that you want to change,  "*" sign in function table means the default setting that is programmed in factory

STEP 5: Indicator on TBU/HBU flashes according to new setting value.

STEP 6: turn power off, remove jumper on J2, then turn power on and TK board return to running mode and  run with new settings.
