The Floatboxx CXC is a metal controller box to house a VESC controller between XR style rails.
It is specifically designed to go with the Superflux motor:
- improved thermals (at least 2x the heatcapacity of the MLC box)
- M20 cable gland for the motor cable
- M10 cable gland for the footpad cable (optional stock connector)
Furthermore this box is made stronger, to take more abuse.
The connector cover is integrated.
Weight: 950 gr = 2.08 lbs (box, screws, lid, seal)
Modular controller plate:
- The VESC controller is mounted on a 2,5 mm (~0,1") thick aluminium heatsink with integrated connector cover.
- The cable glands/strain reliefs are easy reachable
- The controller mounting plate is modular and must be chosen at order:
- Controller plate for Little Focer V3.0/V3.1/Tronic 250R is available for delivery around mid October 2023
- Controller plate for Ubox (100V and ??) is available for delivery towards the end of October 2023
- The controller mounting plate is to be bolted AND sealed onto the Floatboxx CXC by the user.
- preferably use a polymer construction type of sealant for sealing and permanent fixture.
The advantage of Floatboxx CXC:
- Very strong ! Does not break under heavy use
- Stainless steel welded construction
- Stainless steel inserts for the lid and rail mounting
- The VESC can be mounted on the bottom and fixed on the M3 threaded studs.
- More space for Buzzer, BMS, rESCue, extra Li-Ion cells...
- Easy access for DIY: Just remove the footpad to access the lid. No need to remove rails, bumper, connector cover.
- Easy to waterproof: welding imperfections can be closed with silicone/MS Polymer/...
- The handle remains fully available
- Mounting holes for 3D printed LED strip holder
- Improved heat dissipation for the controller:
- The controller mounting plate is made from uncoated 2,5 mm aluminium allowing optimal heat transfer.
- The controller mounting plate transports the heat towards rear via the integrated connector cover
- the 2mm foamrubber sealing is compressed about 50% so the elastic properties are maintained after many cycles of opening.
- rails: CyberRails, stock, Thunderrails, Varials, WTF*, Badgerwheel rails* (*requires some grinding of protrusions in the rail)
- bumpers: stock, BANGS, (NOT compatible with Badger bumpers)
- footpad: stock XR, DIY footpads
- stainless steel box with aluminum lid (both powderpainted white)
- aluminium controller mounting plate for your controller choice, unpainted, connector cover integrated
- foamrubber sealing sticker
- 2 vent stickers
- all nut 'n bolts in stainless steel.
- M5 countersunk screws for the mounting of the box to the rails
- M3 countersunk screws for the lid
- M3 locknuts and nylon washers for the Little Focer
- M4 locknuts for mechanical assembly of the controller plate
- Footpad cable for connecting the stock footpad connector via JST 3-pin to the LFocer
- 12-core battery cable VESC: 2x AWG13, 2x AWG18, 8x AWG24 in PVC sheath OD 11 mm
- The most compact M20 cable gland on the market.
- A M10 cable gland for the LED cable and the footpad cable
The connectors should be purchased separately, these are the size of the holes:
- on/off switch: ø19 mm hole (Pre-wired available from MakersPEV/Customwheel)
- charge plug: ø20,5 mm hole for the Neutrik NC3 MPR-HD XLR (Pre-wired available from MakersPEV/Customwheel)
- footpad: ø10 hole for M10 cable gland (optional stock connector cable to 3-pin JST for Little Focer
- battery cable: ø20 mm hole for M20x1,5 cable gland with lock nut.
- motor: ø20 mm hole for M20x1,5 cable gland with lock nut.
- We use metric screws and tools: M5 to mount the box, M3 to mount the lid
- Floatboxx is not guaranteed to be waterproof on it's own. Do a visual inspection first for small gaps. For 100% certainty: use the Badgerwheel kit . Total waterproofness depends on the complete assembly by the user.
- Use a 1 mm thermal pad between the box and the Mosfets. The location of the VESC controller has no powdercoating for optimal heat transfer.
- we advise 1 mm because we supply a 0,5 mm nylon washer to go below the Mosfets as electrical isolator
