Rx62 is a 5 channel (1 x ESC, 4 x P) DSM2/DSMX compatible micro receiver with a built-in reed e-switch. A suitable magnet is available separately.
The reed switch, or other external switch connected across the switch pads on the receiver board, can be used to switch the receiver on and off. A brief activation, e.g. by swiping a magnet across the reed switch, will turn the receiver on. Switching off can be achieved using the reed switch or the transmitter bind button:
- activate the reed switch for > 2 seconds, the receiver will switch off 2 seconds after the magnet is removed, or
- hold down the transmitter bind button (ch 5) for > 5 seconds
The receiver draws practically no current when switched off so it is possible to leave the battery connected between operations. We do recommend that the battery is disconnected if another operating session is not planned within a couple of days.
The receiver is available as a bare board with 2.54mm pad space for ease of soldering and with lead-out wires for battery and motor. Please contact us if you need wiring for other receiver outputs - e.g. servo/switch channels.

Rx6x Receiver Features
- Variants (1,2,22,3):
The Rx62 receiver is available in 4 variants to suit the model usage and type of transmitter. All functions are programmable, these variants are selected function configurations:
|Usage:||train with joystick Tx||train with Tx20/Tx21||train with Tx22/Tx24||cars/boats with Tx24|
|Motor:||low off(ch1)||centre off(ch1)||centre off(ch1)||centre off(ch1)|
All versions of the Rx62 are the same hardware, the only difference is the program settings. The Rx62 settings can be changed in the usual fashion via waggling the sticks of a standard Tx or the PROG3 / PROG4 programmer may be used. A guide to setup using a standard Tx is available here.
The 'Direction' feature in the table above indicates whether the receiver ESC uses the throttle (chan 1) as a centre-off or full-range control. Centre-off is the default setting for most variants. When configured for full-range (by programming), a seperate channel is used to set the ESC direction - this is channel 3 for the Tx2x railway controllers.
- Low Voltage Cutoff:
The default receiver setting is for the Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC) threshold to be determined from the voltage seen on initialisation - basically, the receiver firmware makes a 'guess' at the battery type. The algorithm used for this calculation means that a 9V Alkaline or NIMH battery can often be interpreted as an almost discharged 3S LiPo. The solution is to either disable LVC, or set it to the correct value for your battery; this is done by programming the receiver.
Instructions for programming receivers using your DT transmitter are at the bottom of the information leaflet that came with the transmitter.
The receiver programming steps for LVC are:
disable LVC: 7 2 1
set LVC: 7 2 3 units tenths
e.g. to set the LVC to 6.5V, the programming steps are: 7 2 3 6 5
- Wiring Options:
The basic form of the the Deltang receivers is a bare board with solder pads for you to add your own wiring. As not all modellers are able to attach wires to the tiny circuit board pads, several wiring options are available to simplify the installation. Please contact us to discuss your needs if one of the options, described below, is not ideal.
If you select one of the wiring options, and that is all you need for connecting the receiver into your vehicle, you should also select the heat shrink tube to be applied to the receiver. Otherwise, a length of heat shrink tube is provided for you to apply yourself.
- Power & Motor Lead-Outs
- 100mm bare-end lead-out wires on the battery input and motor output using appropriately sized flexible wire, red/black for the battery input and yellow for the motor output.
- Power, Motor & L Lead-Outs
- Same as above plus grey lead-out wire for the 'L' pad. This option must be selected if you are using a single LiPo cell with voltage booster. The 'L' input allows the receiver to monitor the LiPo cell voltage and implement motor-cutoff when the cell is discharged.
