 Taigen/​Heng-Long smokers are direct plug-and-play into the SMOKER port on the TCB. Polarity is marked for custom projects, but doesn'​t matter for the Heng-Long and Taigen units. You do not need the special Heng-Long "​proportional"​ smoker since the TCB takes care of the proportional movement, however the proportional unit can still be used.  ​ Taigen/​Heng-Long smokers are direct plug-and-play into the SMOKER port on the TCB.

-For people wanting to create their own smokers, the SMOKER output supplies battery voltage at up to 3 Amps (the maximum current rating of the JST-XH connector, the MOSFET can actually handle more). PWM is unidirectional at 31kHz (ultrasonic).+For people wanting to create their own smokers, the SMOKER output supplies battery voltage at up to 3 Amps (the maximum current rating of the JST-XH connector, the MOSFET can actually handle more).

-On the [[wiki:​opconfig:​tabs:​motors#​smoker|Motors tab]] of OP Config you can specify the smoker'​s idle speed, fast idle speed (speed with transmission disengaged),​ and max speed. You can even "​disconnect"​ the smoker output from the engine effect, and re-purpose it as an electronic switch or unidirectional electronic speed control using the [[wiki:​tcb:​operation:​functionlist#​smoker|Smoker functions]]. ​+You also have the option of controlling the smoker fan and heating element separately by selecting the **Separate** smoker type on the [[wiki:​opconfig:​tabs:​motors#​smoker|Motors tab]] of OP Config. Under this arrangement the fan needs to be plugged into the AUX output which the TCB will reserve for its use. The AUX output can only provide 5 volts so you should try to select a fan that will run at that level. The heating element will then be connected to the SMOKER output since it can handle more current.
