7 World Record

Spencer Lisenby is a pyronary in the world of Dynamic Soaring. We are proud to announce that the last 7 world record DS speeds he has made, have been made using Zepsus Magnetic Switch – the 15A switch now up to 564mph! Also the 7A switch has been used in Spencer’s smaller 2m model up to 524mph…

Spencer Lisenby own statement
For 10+ years now, I have used Zepsus magnetic switches exclusively in all of my models including the 2m Kinetic DP, the world record holding Transonic DP, and also now in the latest Swept Wing Transonic DP. The ability to cycle power without having an exposed switch or having to remove the wing from the model is a huge benefit in the windy, dusty environment where Dynamic Soaring usually takes place. In this type of use, traditional mechanical switches have a track record of failure from dust intrusion. Our high G environment (120+G) is also a cause for concern with mechanical switches that might inadvertently be turned off from inertial forces. I even use Zepsus switches now in simple foam combat gliders to prevent switches from being turned off mid-flight from contact with other models. I have never had a failure or any issue with a Zepsus switch at all. Hard to beat that track record! Thanks for creating such a great product! Keep up the good work!

The new drive train switch is online!

Now it’s here. This journey started 8 months ago. We’ve noticed that many of you have been utilizing the 15A magnetic switch as a drive train switch – a truly innovative adaptation.

The feedback and client usage patterns, serve as inspiration for us, so we started working with your idea and developed something even more powerful to handle higher loads!

We are thrilled to introduce our newly designed version which can now handle up to 25A and withstand up to 20 volts. Now, isn’t that an upgrade? This new model retains all the great features of its predecessor while packing some extra punch!

We appreciate your loyalty and creativity in finding new ways of using our products. Please keep sharing your wonderful ideas with us. They help shape our innovation pipeline. And do give our upgraded switch a great welcome. We’re sure it’ll make your project perform even better.

Happy experimenting with the new improved switche!

The smallest and strongest magnetic switch to date

We am thrilled to share some exciting news with you – we have developed our smallest yet most robust switch ever! It’s so compact, yet incredibly powerful.

This device not only bears our reliable brand name but takes it up a notch as it can handle an impressive 25A and is suitable for up to 4S lipo. This speaks about its efficiency and reliability.

To make things even better, the magnetic switch will be ready for sale come November! You’ll be able to purchase this small but mighty switch in just a few short weeks. Mark your calendar because this is one innovation you surely wouldn’t want to miss out on!

We’re beyond proud of our team that has worked on creating what we believe is a game-changer in the industry. We hope that when you get your hands on one of these magnetic switches, you’ll feel the same way too.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding pricing and availability details closer to launch date.

Thank you for being part of our journey thus far. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out if there are any questions or if there’s anything else we can assist with.

Coming up soon – Magnetic Switch 45A HV

Capable of working with 7S Lipo and 45A and 90A peak. It’s designed with XT60 connectors at both ends and new on/off funktion, which provides a more intuitive on/off function. Place the magnet over the switch and wait a few seconds and it will turn on. Repeat to turn off again. It can be used as a power switch for the entire model including the driveline. The technology is the same safe and reliable technology with built-in failsafe function, ultra low stand-by consumption, like all our other product.

General purpose main power switch

Coming up soon – Double Magnetic Switch

Designed for RC jet planes and other double battery models. It’s designed with 2 parallel switches which are activated from one single point. Instead of turning on the ECU in one place and receiver in another. All is located in one place with the Double Magnetic Switch.

The batteries are separate so it is possible to use 3s on one switch and 2s on the other switch. It can be used as mentioned before for receiver and ECU. But also as a switch for a dual battery power unit, receiver and scale light or receiver and smoke unit etc.

The technology is of course the same safe and reliable technology with built-in failsafe function, ultra low stand-by consumption, and clean and easy on-off function, like all our other products.

Double Magnetic Switch

Designed for RC Sailboads

We are working on a new version of our popular magnetic switch. It is designed specifically for RC Sailboads. We have had several requests for a water repellent switch. Below is our first prototype. I am very satisfied with the result so far. Testing is already starting, more will come in order to ensure a good and reliable product.

New sticker

StickerNow all Magnetic Switchs comes with a sticker. Put it on the fuselage just above the Switch. With this sticker it will be easy to locate the switch and turn the plane on and off. The sticker is made of a ultra thin material, to keep aerodynamic drag to a minimum. Size is 14 x 43 mm and thickness is approximately 0.05 mm

Smart Magnet Holder

Smart-Magnet-HolderMany users and potential buyers of the magnetic switch is afraid of losing the magnet.

And it is also understandable, the magnet is the key. Without it, it’s hard to switch on and off the plane.

This is why I created the Smart Magnet Holder. This solution can be clipped to your jacket or pants. The magnet is mounted on 75cm line with auto roll up.

That way you’ll always know where your magnet is.

New temperature range for the Magnetic Switch

winter-frostI have been looking on the temperature specifications of the components I use in the Magnetic Switch. It turns out that I’ve been very careful when I determine the operating temperature range for the Switch (-10C to +50C). Because all the components can handle down to minus 40 degrees Celsius. The new operating temperature range is (-40C to +50C). So if there is someone who wants to go out and fly in extreme cold. They should not worry about the functionality of my magnetic switch. Remember to bring warm clothes.
