Novak Timing ESC Super-PowerCap Module For 2S Brushless Racing ESCs

Sep 14, 2012 No Comments by

Introducing the Timing ESC Super-PowerCap Module-2S (#5689), which is Novak’s premier upgrade power capacitor module with special added suppressor technology for use with electronic timing advance brushless 2S ESCs. Available October 2012.

Product Description:

This is the replacement Power Capacitor Module for the Novak Pulse Brushless Racing ESC, and an upgrade for the Novak Havoc Pro SC and Impact ESCs. The Super-PowerCap Module can be used with any other brushless ESC, especially ones that electronically advance the motor timing and are operating on 2S LiPo or 4-6 cell NiMH. This unit improves efficiency, lowers ESC operating temperatures, and suppresses the dangerous voltages generated by the increased motor RPMs in timing advance brushless ESCs.

The Super-PowerCap is factory-wired with 16GA silicone wire for easy installation onto ESC solder posts or wiring tabs. The module includes the highest-quality, low-ESR Electrolytic capacitor along with proprietary Novak-developed protection circuitry and components for the best possible protection against the severe conditions of today’s timing advance racing demands.


  • Novak-developed suppression and clamping circuitry and components
  • Optimized for easy installation on the ESC’s direct-solder wiring tabs
  • Designed and tested by Novak in Irvine, California

Item #5689 Timing ESC Super-PowerCap Module-2S is used in place of items #5678 Lightweight Power Trans-Cap Module-2S LiPo and #5679 Racing Power Trans-Cap Module-2S LiPo when these items would be used on a 2S brushless ESC with electronic timing advance.
