The NanoAAB is a successor to the NanoAB3/4 MOSFET that has been updated for the digital era and at the same time it continues the GATE third generation product family. Thanks to the new components the MOSFET's manufacturing errors from the previous ones have been removed and its durability has been improved, and they promise the MOSFET withstands even the 14.8 V Lipo batteries! The NanoAAB is compatible also with systems that use a microswitch!

MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor)
The unit reduces power loss due to normal mechanical contact in the trigger switch. When using MOSFET only the signal current flows through the trigger switch and the actual running current goes directly from the battery to the motor. This prevents the burning of the trigger contacts, which is going to happen sooner or later, especially when using powerful batteries – the average lifetime for contact surfaces in an actively used gun is around one year. At the same time, the MOSFET unit enables the maximum power flow in the circuit without unnecessary resistance due to worn trigger contacts. This also gives you a higher rate of fire and a faster trigger response.
3rd generation MOSFET
The use of modern transistors and microprocessors has enabled the manufacture of small and reliable MOSFET units with microswitch compatibility.
Microswitch compatibility (digital signal processing)
With digital signal processing the MOSFET can filter out the vibrations of the microswitch during firing, which might cause excessive sparks and wear in the switch, lower rate of fire as well as heating of the motor, MOSFET, wires and battery, like with traditional MOSFETs. Since the MOSFET filters out the extra signal oscillation, there are no disadvantages of the vibrations created.
In operation, the motor and the gears accumulate kinetic energy (energy from motion). The magnitude of the energy is mainly determined by the speed of the mechanical parts. The maximum speed is reached approximately after the fourth shot. For this reason, the motor doesn’t stop immediately after releasing the trigger, but continues to rotate for a moment. This is due to the accumulated kinetic energy; the more there is, the longer the motor keeps running “extra”. The active brake is a feature, which stops the running parts with the motor immediately after releasing the trigger.
Benefits of ON/OFF active brake:
1) No more double shots or double feeding. The gearbox performs only one full cycle with semi-auto. The piston always stays in the front position, which extends the lifespan of your gearbox.
2) Realism – You get the exact amount of shots with every pull of the trigger as you meant. The advantage can especially be experienced with semi-auto builds.
Over Temperature Protection
Over temperature protection protects the MOSFET unit, gearbox and the whole gun from electronic issues. The over temperature protection cuts the power going through the unit when it gets too hot.
When problems occur, it activates immediately when you pull the trigger. With the second trigger pull the system evaluates if it’s safe to continue or if it should shut down to prevent further damage. The feature protects the unit also from short circuiting, but it might not have time to activate before the transistors in the unit get too hot. That is why you should use a separate fuse with this unit. The warranty will not cover a fuseless unit.
The transparent protective coating protects the MOSFET unit from splashes, debris and minor damages.
24 month warranty
GATE MOSFETs have an extended two-year warranty. It covers manufacturing defects and problems that come up in normal use. The warranty does not cover any fault that is caused by a faulty installation or misuse, like one caused by too high a voltage. You have to use a separate fuse, which protects the MOSFET from short circuits especially with more powerful LiPo batteries, when using NanoASR, -AAB and PicoAAB MOSFETs or SSR series MOSFETs which do not have an electronic fuse. The use of a separate fuse in other MOSFETs is recommended. You will find installation instructions on GATE's website or in Tradetech.
