The APD PDB500 is designed for high voltage and high current applications, most notably in XClass drone racing. It consists of 8 layers of heavy copper to sustain maximum current demand whilst dissipating minimal heat. This PDB can sustain up to 125A continuous to each ESC leg. Also features 12V 3Amp and 5V 3Amp regulators with a maximum of 14S (60V) input. In short, the APD PDB is the perfect XClass PDB!

Product Description

Signal and telemetry lines are sandwiched between the Negative (GND) layers to shield them from switching noise at high power levels. Negative (GND) layers on top to shield the Flight Controller from switching noise.

Further, it has double sided main input power pads which can be soldered or bolted to. It allows for flight controller mounting with standard 30.5mm x 30.5mm hole spacing. Solder tabs extend off the PCB to allow for thermal relief to make soldering easier.

Manufactured using ISOLA 185HR high performance dielectric glass fibre to sustain continuous high temperature scenarios.

Rest assured, your solder tabs won’t fail, even with 500A loads!
