Spektrum XBC100 Smart Checker Tech Overview



In this video we go in depth in to the Spektrum Smart Checker!

The Spektrum XBC100 Smart Battery Checker is a must have tool for any pilot or drivers pit box. More than a battery checker, it features a built-in cell balancer, integrated servo tester and driver, and Spektrum Smart battery connectivity.

When used with a Spektrum Smart battery, you will be able to see and adjust many of the settings only available with a Spektrum Smart charger. This includes one connection for balance and battery level checking, and providing records like number of cycles, internal battery temperature and exception reports. You can even adjust Smart battery settings right from the XBC100.

The XBC100 also features a Qualcomm 3.0 USB charge port, giving you an easy way to keep your mobile device and Spektrum Smart Transmitters charged when USB power ports are scarce. Better yet, the XBC100 gives you the ability to better setup and test your models with the built in servo tester! Center and test your servo endpoints easily with the integrated PWM output port.

Finally, all of this is displayed on a full color IPS LCD screen that is designed to be easy to read in direct sunlight and is accessed via a user friendly touch interface.

Learn more about the Smart checker and get yours today from your local Spektrum retailer!

Spektrum™ Smart Batteries and Chargers

Please visit https://www.horizonhobby.com/content/spektrum-smart-technology for more information on the Spektrum™ Smart Technology.

Spektrum Smart technology is about offering a higher connection to your hobby. It’s a connection that puts you in complete control, makes you more aware and more confident about the capability of your equipment—all the while making vital components of your model easier to use than ever. The combined result is a sense that will make you wish everything about your hobby was “smarter.”

When you’re connected in a way Spektrum Smart technology offers—it’s All Systems Go. That’s how it feels. Components of your RC model talk to each other, connecting you systematically, automatically—responding to you instinctively, as they should be. And the best part? Spektrum users are already a part of evolutionary Spektrum Smart technology, a smarter way to have RC fun that’s just getting started.

LiPo batteries with Spektrum Smart™ technology practically take care of themselves. When combined with a Spektrum™ Smart Battery Charger, the unique parameters, history of the battery and more are all available the instant it’s connected. Charging a Smart Battery is easy as it gets, plus Smart LiPo battery packs are programmable to meet your exact charging needs. But the crowning feature of a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery is that it can be programmed to safely self-discharge to storage condition. That’s a Smart Battery pack!

The Only LiPo Battery You’ll Ever Want!
According to parameters you define, a Smart LiPo battery can automatically discharge to storage condition safely all by itself. It’s a unique innovation that avoids a popular form of performance degradation, promotes longer battery life and better performance over the life of the pack. That’s a VERY Smart Battery!

The Smart Difference.
Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries maintain an error log including the number of over-heat, over-discharge and over-charge incidents which can be helpful data in assuring that the battery you’ve chosen is right for the application. A Smart Battery uploads its charge parameters to a Spektrum Smart Charger automatically making charging as simple as pressing the “start” button. The charge rate of every Smart Battery is customizable, allowing you to take full advantage of packs with faster charge ratings.

Spektrum Smart technology is about offering a higher connection to your hobby. It’s a connection that puts you in complete control, makes you more aware and more confident about the capability of your equipment—all the while making your hobby easier. The combined result will make you wish everything about your hobby was “smarter.” Spektrum Smart LiPo Batteries are a part of a wide series of Smart technology products now available.

You’ll never have to set charge preferences for a Spektrum Smart battery until you want to. When a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery is connected to a Spektrum Smart charger, unique parameters and health of that Smart LiPo battery upload from the Smart memory microchip integrated into the battery. Through the charger, you can view and set preferences, such as charge rates, so that all you have to do to charge the pack every time is press the charger “start” button. Smart technology takes care of the rest.

A Familiar Connection.
Every Smart LiPo battery is factory assembled with the next-generation IC3™ or IC5™ output connector that’s conveniently compatible with older devices equipped with robust EC3™ and EC5™ connectors. You can use Smart Batteries with older systems, but only when connected to a Spektrum Smart device will all the benefits of Smart technology become obvious.

Spektrum Smart LiPo Batteries Store Unique Data, such as:
• Battery Brand
• Battery Type
• Battery Capacity
• Battery C Rating
• Individual Cell Voltage
• Battery Temperature
• Charge/Discharge Cycles
