ArmSafe® Kit with 12AWG Wire (Max 80 Amps)


Product Description

ArmSafe® Kit with 12AWG wire is rated for 80Amps continuous and 120Amps Burst. BUT these limits are ONLY a guide, see below.*

The ArmSafe® System was created to improve the safety of electric RC models by giving the user better control of WHEN they energize and de-energize their models.  This control can help reduce the risk of propeller strikes due to inadvertent motor starts.  ArmSafe® is an effective solution for reducing, not eliminating, the risk of injury around high powered electric models.  When ArmSafe® is CORRECTLY USED, the user has better control of WHEN they energize and de-energize their RC model. Uses Deans® Ultra Plug® Pat# 5,533,915. ArmSafe® was developed to have all the features RC modelers want:

1. High Current Rating

2. Small Size

3. Proven Connector Reliability

4. Easy to Install

5. Easy to Use

This Kit include everything needed for one complete arming system:

1 – (AS1-B   Arming Base)

1 – (AS1-P   Arming Plug)

1 – 18” of High Flex Silicone Wire x 12AWG

4 – Pieces of Shrink Tubing

1 - Allen Wrench (L-Hex Key) 0.050" - Not Shown in Picture


* The above amperage limits are provided as a guide to help size ArmSafe® for RC models. But this is just a guide, you MUST test all installations at FULL load conditions to make sure that the wire and connectors do not get hot. These amperage guides are rated with 10mph x 80degF air flow for eight minutes, with burst ratings for 5 seconds provided the average current (including the bursts) does not exceed the Max Continuous amperage rating. Many factors will affect the amperage carrying capacity of wire, connectors, and wire harness assemblies such as; wire lengths, air temperature, amount of air movement, quality of the solder joints, wire quality, connector quality, and how long the current flows through the wire.

  1. great product

    Posted by Bob Richmond on 29th May 2015

    I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to be safe.

  2. Hard to install on foam planes

    Posted by Ted on 2nd Apr 2015

    Due to thickness of foam fuselage, had to purchase longer screws. Was not able to find same thread. Had some difficulty in putting together the plug in the fuselage side.

    SharpRC response:
    For foam installations most people glue in the base. However we do sell longer screws for this purpose, but the shorter screws that come with the product are thread forming screws. So these shorter screws must be installed and removed to form the threads before the longer screws can be used.

  5. Adds Safety

    Posted by David on 5th Feb 2015

    Great product! The only thing I couldn't use was the screws. There needs to be an option to purchase longer screws to use through thicker bodies when mounting.
    Reply from SharpRC:
    We do offer the option for longer screws, they are 1" long and are part number SUD0308.

    Very good product.

  9. A "must" safety device for all larger electrics.

    Posted by Dennis Merkel on 19th Nov 2014

    Efficient, simple design with clear installation instructions. Nice to deal directly with manufacturer, avoiding third party supplier. Also appreciate your advice/help!

  10. Excellent product

    Posted by Larry Mann on 8th Oct 2014

    Excellent product for safe handling of electric engines. Need a little care in getting the screw started in the nut ring to cut the threads. Push straight down with a screwdriver on a firm surface.
