Hardware Requirements

486 or later processor running Windows 98 or later.  1.5 MB of hard drive space, and 640K of memory.

A Type A (v1.1 or later) USB port is required for the USB interface.

 


Overview

The ESC programmer uses a Prolific USB controller interface that shows up under Windows as a COM port.  You will need to determine which COM port that Windows has chosen for the USB interface.  To do this, right-click on your "My Computer" icon and select PROPERTIES.  Now, select the HARDWARE tab.  Click the DEVICE MANAGER button.  Scroll down the list of devices until you see "Ports (COM & LPT)".  Look for "Prolific-to-Serial Comm Port (COMxx)".  Where, 'xx' is the COM port.  This is the COM port you will select when using the ESC programming software.

IT IS NECESSARY TO INSTALL THE PROLIFIC USB DRIVER BEFORE CONNECTING THE ESC PROGRAMMING HARDWARE!

 


 

Installing the USB driver

DO NOT PLUG IN THE ESC PROGRAMMING UNIT INTO YOUR PC BEFORE THE USB DRIVER SOFTWARE HAS BEEN INSTALLED!

Download the USB installer software (above).  Hint: hold the SHIFT key while clicking the link or using the right mouse button when clicking the link and save the file to your desktop so that it is easy to find.

Open the downloaded zip file, and run the installer (PL2303_Prolific_DriverInstaller_v1.5.0.exe) by double-clicking on its icon. 

Follow the installer instructions to install the software on your computer.  Once it has been installed, you can delete the downloaded file.


 

Installing the USB hardware

To install the USB hardware, simply plug the device into the USB port on your computer.  You may need a servo extension to extend the length of the cable to reach your ESC connnection.


 

Using the ESC programming software

Connect a motor and battery to the ESC.  Plug in the receiver signal line from the ESC into the USB hardware.

Connect the USB hardware to your computer and run the ESC_Programmer.exe file by double-clicking on its icon.  Now, select the COM port for your device from the list of available COM ports.  See above to determine which COM port the USB hardware is.

Once the COM port has been selected, click on the Query ESC button.  You will hear a tone from the motor.  If you not hear a tone, try it again.  If you still do not hear a tone you may have the wrong COM port selected.  Double-check the COM port.

Once you hear the tone you know that the ESC is connected and ready to be set.  Adjust all of the settings how you want them and then click on the "Send ESC Settings" button.  You will hear a series of "beeps", followed by one long tone.  The ESC has been programmed.  You can now disconnect the power, motor, and receiver line from the ESC.  It is ready to use.
