Slow rampup speed (J)
When using the internal Governor function this will not apply full throttle immediately when switching into idle up but will increase the motor speed slowly until the desired head speed is reached. At menu point J you can determine how fast this soft start occurs when the Governor is activated initially. The speed is given in number of revolutions by how much the rotor speed is increased per second. The higher the speed the faster your preset head speed will be reached. Please note that the given rates only are indicative. Depending on the response of the speed controller and the inertia of the rotor system it can actually take longer or shorter until the desired speed is reached.
|Status-LED||Slow rampup speed|
|red flashing||100 rps|
|blue flashing||300 rps|
With the StudioX software/StudioXm App you have the option to disable the softstart feature, which will set the spool up rate to "0". This is necessary when using a speed controler with built-in soft start feature (but without headspeed governing!). In this case the system will add half throttle immediately and wait until the speed controler has finished the spool up. Then it will activate the governing.
Please note that you can't set a speed lower than 50 rps with StudioX because of the fact noted above. Setting the speed below 50 will be the same as setting it to 0, so it will disable the soft start!
