Begin to Use The New ESC:
Before using the new ESC please carefully check for whether each connections are correct or not.
* Connected with Sensored Brushless motor
When using a Sensored Brushless motor, the Blue motor wire A, Yellow motor wire B and Orange motor wire C of the ESC must be connected with the Sensored motor wire A,B,C respectively. It is necessary to connect the Sensor wire to the “Sensor” socket on the ESC. Don’t change the wires sequence optionally.
* Connected with Sensoreless Brushless motor
When using a Sensoreless Brushless motor, the Blue motor wire A , Yellow motor wire B and Orange motor wire C of the ESC can be connected with the motor wires freely. If the motor runs in the opposite direction, please swap any two wire connections.
* Connect the ESC signal wire to the Receiver
Black wire RX-
Red wire RX+6.0V
White wire RX-Signal
ESC’s indicating LEDs:
Conversion of Sensored and Sensorless function
* When the Power wires on the ESC are connected with the battery pack, the ESC can automatically identify the motor type (Sensored/Sensorless) via indicated LEDs.
*If the ESC works at the status of Sensored, remove the Sensor wire, the ESC can be automatically changed to the status of Sensorless.

Sensored/Sensorless brushless ESC general information
1. Cutoff Voltage
Automatically detect the number of the cells
According to the type of your batteries , set up the type of the batteries and Low Voltage Cutoff Threshold via PC software or program card. The ESC can detect the Voltage of the battery anytime and will stop working once the Voltage of the battery is lower than the preset Low Voltage Cutoff Threshold.
When using NiMH or NiCd batteries you do not need to set a cutoff voltage to protect the batteries. If you are using more than 6-cell NiMH or NiCd batteries, you must adjust the cutoff voltage, for example if you are using an 8-cell pack of NiMH batteries you would use a cutoff of 5.6V volts (8 x 0.7V = 5.6V). When the voltage of the batteries packs is within 8.4~12.6V, the ESC will automatically identify 3S LiPos. When the voltage of the batteries packs is less than 8.4V, the ESC will automatically identify 2S LiPos. When the voltage of the batteries packs is within 8.4~14.8V, the ESC will automatically identify 2~4S LiPos. When the voltage of the batteries packs is within 21~25.2V, the ESC will automatically identify 5-6S LiPos.
Customized Voltage Cutoff (for NiMH or NiCd Batteries) you can select a starting cutoff voltage of 4, 5, 6, 9 or 12 volts. Then using the up/down to the right of the voltage you can increase the voltage stepping up 0.1V between the selectable settings.
* When using any Lithium batteries, they must not be discharged to less than 3.0V per cell.
2. Running Mode
· Forward w/o Reverse
This is a Race setting - Reverse is disabled.
You will find in racing, most tracks will not allow racing with reverse enabled.
Forward with pause then Reverse: (DEFAULT)
General bashing around (FUN) or racing if reverse is allowed for the event. The Electronic Speed Controller requires 2 seconds of continuous neutral from the transmitter prior to allowing reverse to operate.
Note: There is automatic protection within the ZTW ESC. Only after you have stopped and returned the trigger to neutral will reverse become available. If while traveling in reverse, pull the trigger to go forward. This is to help prevent serious damage to the drive train.
Forward / Reverse
If the option is actived, the RC car could go forward and backward, but couldn`t brake.
ESC – reverse operation
Should you get into a situation that requires reverse, after you have applied any brakes you may have needed, return the throttle trigger to the neutral position. Wait a moment or two and then push the trigger forward for reverse.
3. Motor Timing - This option affects the power band and efficiency (run time) of an electric motor. The default is “Normal” and is a good starting point to deliver power and provide good run time.
Very Low Provides maximum efficiency with less power. Higher timing produces significantly more power but at the expense of efficiency (less run time) and typically the motor will generate more heat. Each brushless motor will respond to timing differently. Good for running around on paved, or harder surfaces, and racing with high KV rated or low-turn motors
Low Provides power for running through soft surfaces, having fun and longer run time.
Normal (Default) Good mix of power and efficiency using any motor
High More power than efficiency so run time will reduce, and you should be monitoring motor heat. The higher KV or lower turn motors will generate heat quickly using this setting. A safe high temperature range is 165F to 180F (74° - 82° Celsius), going higher may damage your motor.
Very high This is maximum power and must be used with caution.
Note : Any motor has the potential to over-heat in this setting. Frequently check the motor temperature and make sure you’re not operating higher than 165° and 180° Fahrenheit (74° - 82° Celsius), which may damage your motor, or damage your Electronic Speed Controller (ESC).
4. Initial Acceleration - Use this to limit the initial power that is sent to the motor when starting from a complete stop.
Using the low option, the vehicle will launch very slowly and provide the longest run times. When using the HIGH choice, you will have wheel-spinning acceleration at the cost of run time. This is also very tough on the batteries as the amperage draw can be very high. If your vehicle cuts out, hesitates or loses radio control, you should consider setting this at a lower value.
Low Using this option will provide longer run times and is easiest on the batteries. It is a good choice for beginners.
Medium Medium requires more from your batteries, and is good for low traction surfaces.
High This option will provide full acceleration and requires stout batteries to supply the load required in this setting.
Very high This option will provide full acceleration and requires stout batteries to supply the load required in this setting.
5. Throttle Percent Reverse - Use this to limit the power available using reverse throttle. The lower the percent or level the less speed will be available in reverse.
20%, 30%,40%,50%,60%( Default),70%,80%,90%,100%
6. Throttle Limit – Use this to limit the power available using forward throttle.
The lower the percent the less forward throttle speed will be available.
7. Percentage Braking - Gives you the ability to have full control over the amount of brake your vehicle will have.
8. Percentage Drag Brake - 0%( Default) 4%,8%,12%,15%,20%,25%,30%
The drag brake function provides the driver a set percentage of brake when you have the transmitter resting in neutral. This will create the “feel” of a brushed motor.
Drag brake are used in racing to slow a vehicle as you let off approaching a corner versus the driver having to push the brake at every corner.
Try working with this to get a sense of how you might use this for your track.
If you are running on a high traction track with tight corners, a stronger setting should work best.
If you are running in an open area, you will find a smaller percentage will result in better control.
If you are running in dusty or slippery surfaces, you will more than likely want to use the lowest option.
9. Motor Rotation
Normal (default), Reverse
10. Neutral Range – This setting adjusts the amount of “Deadband” off neutral on the throttle trigger. This is in Milli-Seconds (MS) and is the amount of neutral when you pull the trigger.
The smaller the value the less “Deadband” or movement is required off-center for the ESC to begin throttle functions.
Using a higher value for this setting will provide a wider Deadband.
Modifying the ACTIVE profile
The ZTW Program Card is used to make all adjustments to the active profile in your ESC. Any active profile can be modified by PC software. Connect the USB cable to your PC or Laptop computer.
