What does Active Braking do?
Active braking has all the features of the standard MOSFET Unit, with one additional feature: it prevents motor over-spin. Normally, when you pull the trigger in your AEG, momentum causes your gears to turn a little even after you let off the trigger. This means that your spring is left in a partially compressed state; even if you fire it a few times in semi-auto. Active braking takes this rotational energy and ‘burns it off’ in the form of heat. This benefits your gun by improving trigger response and feel. Your spring will also never remain partially compressed, taking that extra pressure off of your internals.
BOTTOM LINE: By using an Active Braking MOSFET you will prevent motor over-spin as well as the partial compression of your spring. In addition, you will see an improved trigger response and feel.
What is Included?
A completely assembled & tested Active Braking MOSFET Unit comprised of the following:
- A MOSFET chip that can handle 30V and 260A with only .003Ω of internal resistance.
- An Active Braking chip that can handle 60V and 80A with only .023Ω of internal resistance.
- 18” of pre-attached 24 AWG Gate Wire (green) for easy soldering inside your gearbox. This wire is small enough to feed through practically anywhere on an airsoft gun.
- 12” of Deans Ultra Silicone Insulated, High Strand Count, 16 AWG black and red wire to be spliced into your existing wiring harness towards your MOTOR.
- 6” of Deans Ultra Silicone Insulated, High Strand Count, 16 AWG black and red wire to be spliced into your existing wiring harness towards your BATTERY.
All electrical connections within the MOSFET are sealed with liquid electrical tape to prevent accidental shorting and the entire unit is covered in heat shrink tubing for added durability and protection.
