Changelog

ALL RELEASES

22.05.2018 - v3.1 beta released DOWNLOAD

  • inital release
  • i did not tested this PCB. To V3.0 i just added the Diodes and did cleaned it up a bit. V3.0 worked so far. Please report any issues!

Important

Less than 4 nodes?

You can use less than 4 nodes. All you have to do, is to bridge TX/RX (see silkscreen) of the unused nodes. Always use at least "Node1" because the voltage measurement is connected to this node.

5 V power via USB

If you want to power the unit via 5 V USB, please remove stepdown marked as "Arduino" and bridge IN and OUT of it to pass the power from the USB to the Arduios.

How to track 8 pilots and more

If you plan to track more than 4 pilots at the same time, connect just connect two or more PCBs together.

  • Please always set the Loopback Jumper to the first PCB.
  • Connect the next PCB via 6Pin JST cable
  • On the first PCB, bridge MV
  • On following PCBs please bridge GM
  • WiFi/Bluetooth Module always connects to the last PCB.
