Current Limiting Victor SP

At our last event, we experienced frequent brownouts during matches, and would like to regulate current draw in order to stay out of brownout range. Currently, we are using the provided current limiting options for our Talon SRXs, and simply capping voltage application to our victors. Do you have any suggestions on a cleaner solution to regulate current draw on the victors?

You can read the current on each branch circuit from the PDP. If you react quickly enough, you can effectively limit the current supplied by any motor controller.

Just use a smaller auto reset fuse.
