The [Avionics Anonymous Engine Monitor] interfaces with common engine sensors. It provides 4x 0-5V analog inputs, 4x thermocouple inputs, and an RPM input. Connects to Pixhawk and other similar autopilots via UAVCAN. Comes fully assembled, ready to use!
Note: This device currently requires custom development to integrate with most autopilot software. Please contact us if you need assistance.

The Engine Monitor is connected to your autopilot via CAN bus. The wiring is per the pinout below, or the necessary cables can be purchased to connect to your system right out of the box:
Analog inputs are connected to each of 4x Molex SL 2-pin locking headers. Polarity is marked on the board.
Thermocouples are connected to each of 4x screw-terminal blocks. Polarity is marked on the board.
The RPM signal is connected to a Molex SL 2-pin locking header. Polarity is marked on the board.
Analog Input Connectors (4x)
Thermocouple Input Connectors (4x)
RPM Input Connector
Currently, this device is not natively supported by common autopilots, and the firmware of this device itself is customized to your needs. We can set it up to publish CircuitStatus, FuelStatus, Temperature, RPM, or any other default UAVCAN messages, or define your own DSDL and we'll integrate it. Add your own support for processing these UAVCAN messages in your autopilot, or get in touch with us to ask about developing this support for you.
