 Installation Guide

Inspect metal portion on FETs and make sure they are not touched to each other after shipment

Set Main Gun Function Mode to match your tank hardware configuration (HL AirSoft, HL Recoil or TAMIYA Recoil),

Disconnect RX-18 and plug cables to the same connector on TK board,

Set Sound Volume to middle

Install a switch cable (for example, HL Smoke Unit Switch Cable) to SW connector( Switch Cable Port)  as power switch.

 

Because HL tank already have power switch on battery cable path, so additional switch is not required, just to use a jumper to short pins in SW Cable port or connect a switch cable and keep it switched on.

 

When high current track motors are used, such as 400/480 motor, power switch on battery cable path will not be able to handle, connect a switch cable (for example, HL Smoke Unit Switch Cable) to this port as power switch.

Connect a recoil servo to J2(Optional),

Rewire Air-soft unit if you want to elevate and depress gun directly, see "HL Gun Elevation and AirSoft Correction" section

Connect channel cables to receiver according to RC mode( See picture "TK series connector and pin assignments" ) . if you are not sure what mode you RC system is, just swap CH2 and CH3 and try again.

 

TK20 board has BEC( Battery eliminate circuit), can power receiver through channel cables, no additional battery is needed for receiver

 HL Gun Elevation and AirSoft Correction

In HL original design, gun Elevation and AirSoft sharing same driving H/W, so the gun elevation can only be controlled  in one direction, if you missed the angle you want, you will need to wait a full cycle of gun elevation, to correct this problem, we add dedicate AirSoft control h/w to TK20 board. the following shows you how to correct HL tank and get two direction elevation.

 

The picture below is original wiring in HL tank:

Modify it as the following:

Green box in the diagram above represent the small PCB in tank, small  red, black, blue ... orange in it represent the wire color.

1. Disconnect red wire between safety switch and gun barrel elevation unit.

2. Change original 3P connector to 4P type, add additional wire from safety switch to 4P connector,

3. Add 4P connector HUL-8P PCB connector

4. AirSoft unit is now controlled by red-black pair, gun barrel unit is controlled by red-white pair. and you can connect 8P connector to CN9 on TK-18/20 with original cable.

5(Optinal). refer to wiring diagram, wire a 2.2 ohm 1/2W (color code: red read gold gold) in-serial resistor to turret rotate, elevation and airsoft motor to limit the current to protect FETs on TK22 in case you stall motor.

 

Here is a video of airsoft setup for Taigen Tank

 

 HL Tail Light Correction

Tail Light in HL tank is wire to MG light, so the Tail Light flashes when MG firing, this is very funny to us, to correct this problem and make tail light to be controlled with Headlight, please refer to the picture below and rewire it.

1. Remove 2 pin plug from PCB, twist angled pins to opposite side,

2. Connect Tail Light LED + pin(  Red wire of Tail Light cable) to CN9.3 pin( Yellow wire )

3. Connect a 200 Ohm resistor between 2-P connector pin and CN9.2 pin(Green), a SMD type resistor is used in this example to save space.

Gun Barrel Stabilizer(GBS) overview and installation

GBS is an optional module for TK22G2/TK24G2. When GBS  is turned on, it detects the tank movement and compensate gun rotation and elevation to stabilize the gun automatically. When GBS is turned on, operator can still change gun elevation and direction under GBS compensation, GSU have the following features:

 

- 2-axis gun stabilization in turret rotation and gun elevation.

- Fully programmable gun elevation real angle calculator allows GBS to work with different elevation setup,

- Fully programmable turret motor controller allows GBS to work with different motor/gear box setup,

- Engine deck detection, gun raise automatically when gun travels above engine deck,

- Auto reload position, Gun barrel goes to to reload position after fire, and return to last position when reload when reload time expired,

- Adjustable Engine deck level,

- Adjustable auto reload position,

- Gun barrel momentum effect,

- GBS unit dimensions: 20 x 16 x 3mm.

- Unified platform design, allows all existing TK20/TK22 can be shipped back to us to upgrade to TK22G2

 

Servo for GBS -

-Control System: +Pulse Width Control 1520usec Neutral
-Required Pulse: 3-5 Volt Peak to Peak Square Wave
-Operating Voltage: 4.8-6.0 Volts

-Operating Angle: 45 Deg. one side

 

Power on GBS calibration - When power on TK22G2, GSU starts a reset process and must be kept stationary.

 

The GBS LED blinks during GBS calibration and you must not to  move the tank during calibration. The GBS are very sensitive and you should not touch or vibrate the GSU during power on reset. The process will take a few seconds. The HEADLIGHT led will turn on when calibration completed.

An in-series 200-ohm resistor is needed for GBS LED

 

 

  

Mounting of GBS - The GBS unit must be mounted securely and horizontally on the turret, here is an example, first to use Tamiya 5mm square beam, cut into 5~6mm in length, make 1.6mm hole, then glue to turret floor by cement

Bolt GBS unit with the screws came with GBS unit, and plug connector to J6 port on TK22G2, Length of GBS cable can not exceed 80mm or TK22G2 may miss reading GBS.

For accurate motion detection, it must be kept within 5 degree with turret base plate. mounting directions is as shown in following picture. Servo for elevation is Futaba S3003 in this setup.

Recommended GBS mounting position for Leopard 2

 

Turning GBS on/off - GBS can be turned on/off by move right stick to top, move left stick to right, you can also hear click sound when turn it on and off

Adjusting gun elevation angle - The gun elevation V gain setting is used to adjust the amount of gun elevation servo angle to meet different mechanical setup. adjusting procedures are

 

-First to put TK22/24G2 board in IR programming mode.

-Turn GBS on and moves the gun barrel to horizontal position.

-Tilt the tank for 15-20 degree.

-Use IR configure remote to adjust servo gain value until the gun is horizontal again.

-Power off TK22G board, remove jumper and turn power again to leave IR programming mode.

 

Adjusting gun elevation angle calculator gains - The angle calculator's fast gain and slow gain settings are used to adjust the angle calculation, adjusting procedures are

 

-First to put TK60G2 board in IR programming mode.

-Turn GBS on and moves the gun barrel to horizontal position.

-Tilt the tank for 10-20 degree.

-Rotate turret in various speed ( from low to full speed), if elevation speed is too slow, increase slow gain a bit, otherwise, reduce slow gain,

-rotate turret to 12 o'clock position, tilt the tank hull about 15-20 degree in various speed, if elevation speed is too slow, can not keep up tank hull tilt speed, increase fast gain a bit, if elevation moves faster the hull tile speed and over the position it should be (overshoot), decrease fast gain a bit

-Power off TK60G2 board, remove jumper and turn power again to leave IR programming mode.

 

Adjusting turret rotation motor control gains -Turret rotation motor P , I  and D gain are used to meet the characteristic of turret rotate motor and design on your tank. adjusting procedures are as the following.

 

-First to put TK2xG2 board in IR programming mode.

-Turn GSU on

-Rotate tank hull from stationary to low speed, if turret motor does not start as quick as tank hull rotation, increase I gain a bit, if turret motor runs too fast (overshoot) , decrease I gain a bit.

-Rotate tank hull in various speed( low, middle and full) , if turret rotation speed is too slow, can't keep up hull rotation, increase P gain, otherwise, reduce speed gain,

-Stop tank hull rotation from various speed, if turret stops too early, decrease D gain, if turret stops too late increase D gain.

  

 Tank Personalization( Patent Pending)
