KISS ESC - serial receiver
Describes how to connect a KISS ESC directly to a serial (SBUS, Graupner SUMD, Multiplex SRXL or TBS CRSF) receiver.
This functionality is supported by KISS ESC 25A and KISS ESC 32A only!
The KISS ESC supports Serial Receivers. It auto detects on the input (Sig. | RX). As it doesn‘t deliver 5V, the Receiver must be powered externally.
It is also possible to force specific Telemetry in case of PWM signal is detected. See CLI section for further details.

FrSky SBUS and S-Port

Connect the Sbus Output to Sig. | RX pin. And if you need Telemetry connect S-Port to TLM | TX. If a valid Sbus signal is detected, S-Port becomes active automatically.
The ESC uses Sbus channel 0 as default throttle channel. For S-Port telemetry it's default sensor adress is 27. Both can be changed via the CLI interface if needed.
Available telemetry:
- Voltage (Volt)
- Current (Ampere)
- Consumption (mA/h) - Temperature (°C)
- RpM (Default for 14 Magnetpole Motor, confugurable in CLI)

Graupner SumD and HOTT

Connect the SumD Output to Sig. | RX pin. And if you need Telemetry, HOTT to TLM | TX. If a valid SumD signal is detected, HOTT gets automatically active.
The ESC uses as default throttle channel SumD channel 0. This can be changed via CLI interface if needed.
In the HOTT telemetry it will be found as Electricl Air Module.
Available telemetry:
- Voltage (Volt)
- Current (Ampere)
- Consumption (mA/h) - Temperature (°C)
- RpM (Default for 14 Magnetpole Motor, confugurable in CLI)

Multiplex SRXL and Sensorbus

Connect the SRXL Output to Sig. | RX pin. And if you need Telemetry, Sensorbus to TLM | TX. If a valid SRXL signal is detected, Sensorbus gets automatically active.
The ESC uses as default throttle channel SRXL channel 3. Telemetry uses Sensorbus ID 2-6. Both can be changed via the CLI interface if needed.
Available telemetry:
- Voltage (Volt)
- Current (Ampere)
- Consumption (mA/h) - Temperature (°C)
- RpM (Default for 14 Magnetpole Motor, confugurable in CLI)

TBS Crossfire

Connect the CRSF TX Output to Sig. | RX pin. And if you need Telemetry, CRSF RX to TLM | TX. The used throttle channel is CRSF channel 0
Available telemetry:
- Voltage (Volt)
- Current (Ampere)
- Consumption (mA/h)
