RC FAIL-SAFE DEVICES
RAM has originated more "fail safes" than any other manufacturer. They are designed to eliminate or help to prevent the most common sources of problems to the R/C modeler. All systems are completely assembled. A generic receiver plug is attached when appropriate. Batteries and connectors may be required for other devices.
RAM 09 BATTERY BACKER.
Radio manufacturers state that battery pack and switch failure account for 80% of all radio problems. The system provides a complete backup for both of these trouble sources. The device senses low or intermittent voltage from the main receiver battery system and instantly switches to the backup battery system. (This battery can be as little as a 100 milli amp nicad pack or a standard nicad or alkaline pack.) It then turns on a bright red LED so that you are warned that you are on the backup system. The backup battery and switch harness are required to complete the installation. The 3 amp system capacity is suitable for models using 4 standard serves. Larger models with heavy duty and dual serves should use the RAM 25. The device is 1-3/4" x 3/4" x 5/8". Weight 1/2 oz.
RAM 11 LOW BATTERY ALARM.
The new RAM 11 gives an audio AND visual low battery alarm for your 4.8 volt receiver OR 9.6 volt transmitter battery. You will hear a beeper AND see a warning red LED if your battery charge is low. The device is 1-3/4" x 1" x 5/8" and weighs 1/2 oz.
RAM 12 LOW FUEL LIGHT, GLOW FUEL MONITOR.
You can now have a visible warning when your tank reaches the low glow fuel level point that you set. This 1/2 ounce device turns on a bright light mounted on your model which can easily be seen in a fly by or hover. Draws power from the receiver battery only when the warning light is on.
RAM 17 PLANE FINDER MARK II.
The new standard for finding lost models Rugged and powered by its own battery, this ONE OUNCE system doesn't depend on the receiver and battery that probably caused the "fly away". Flip the arming switch and it remains silent for 15 minutes after which it beeps at 65db at 50 feet for up to 4 hours or 4 days with a larger 9V battery. Easy to use, it works with any radio system, even PCMs. Complete with battery. Judged best by R/C Modeler Jan. 98.
RAM 22 SIMPLE CYCLER.
Why pay for another charger when you already own one? Cycle up to 600 MA, 4.8 volt receiver and 9.6 volt transmitter batteries the easy way throughout the year. The Simple Cycler gives you an audible warning when your packs are discharged to the level recommended by battery manufacturers. Then safely recharge with your radio system's charger. You can easily determine the percentage of use and charge remaining in your pack, as well as get an early indication of cell failure.
For receiver packs higher than 600 MA see the RAM 26.
RAM 25 BIG MODEL BATTERY BACKER.
With a 10 Amp capacity this system will handle the demands of large models with heavy duty and dual serves. It operates just like the RAM 09, above, and comes with two heavy duty switch harnesses to carry the heavy amperage loads. This new model is smaller, (1-3/4'' x 1-3/4" x 1/2") lighter (1 oz.) and simpler to install than the original model.
RAM 26 BIG BATTERY CYCLER.
Now you can cycle your big 4.8 volt packs (600 to 4000 MA) with the same efficiency of our famous RAM 22 Simple Cycler.
RAM 44 BOAT SAVER.
This device senses water in the bottom of your boat and turns on a bright warning light. Requires 6 to 12 volt battery.
RAM 45 BOAT SAVER WITH PUMP.
Our RAM 44 bilge water sensor is attached to a small pump so that the warning light signals you of water in the boat while the pump removes it.
RAM 5O IGNITER.
See a Pictorial description
All the outstanding features of the RAM 49 but with a 1300 MA battery to provide more power for 35 and larger engines where the extra ounce of the larger cell is not critical. 1" x 2" x 1-1/2". Weight 3 oz. Complete system. Nothing extra to buy!
RAM 62 SERVO FAIL SAFE MARK II. New
Save your model and maybe more! Anytime your model loses transmitter signal, this device will automatically move the serve it controls to the failsafe position you have preset. Example: Stop or reduce the engine throttle and greatly minimize the chance of severe crash damage, Response delay is adjustable from 0 to 5 seconds. It is also WATER PROOF ABLE and features a flat design that is half the size of a credit card. This new version has two generic connectors and will work with any receiver.
RAM 83 RADIO SIGNAL WATCH DOG.
This 1/2 ounce device plugs into your receiver and provides 4 services. The beeper will warn you of any interfering transmitter signal, the lack of your transmitter signal and simplify range checking. It also acts as a plane finder for non PCM radios if the receiver and battery are operable. A generic receiver plug is attached.
RAM 90 ALARMIST. New
Used in conjunction with your peak detector charger or discharge load, a beeper sounds when you reach full charge or safe, deep discharge for 6, 7 and 8 cell batteries. Circuitry allows you to do both functions simultaneously. You will immediately know when your battery pack is fully charged or deep discharged.
