The Avionics Anonymous Voltage Monitor is a small 8-channel analog input unit. It allows measurement of analog sensors or monitoring of multiple batteries, voltage regulators, solar cells, etc - any 8 voltage sources that share a common ground. 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.
- 8 separate voltage inputs (common ground)
- Inputs are protected against under- and over-voltage
- Units are built to order with your preferred voltage range for each channel
- Publishes 8x standard UAVCAN "CircuitStatus" messages
- Robust UAVCAN interface is compatible with most Pixhawks and similar autopilots
- Update firmware via CAN interface
Note: Because the inputs share a common ground, this unit cannot be used to monitor series cell voltages in a battery.
- Weight: x.x grams
- Size: 1.15in x 1.35in x 0.25in
- Input Power: 4.0V to 5.5V, XXmA
- Coming soon! Contact us to order now.
The Voltage 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 channels 1-8 on the 8x2 header. The 8 ground pins, closest to the edge of the board, are tied to a common ground.
Power Supply. 4.0-5.5V supported.
Input Connectors (8x)
Currently, this device is not natively supported by common autopilots. Add your own support for UAVCAN devices publishing "CircuitStatus" messages, or get in touch with us to ask about developing this support for you.
The Voltage Monitor node has a number of parameters accessible via the UAVCAN interface. These may be set following the steps outlined here
