Re: Activating cell voltage measurement for/in OpenXSensor

Hi. This here shows a bit of my 'standard' oXs. IMG_20210116_193421.jpg RX, oXs with MS5611 and an ACS712-20A current sensor., placed between battery and controller. There is a distance between current sensor and oXs, so I can place the oXs with the baro in a more 'quieter' place. There are 4 wires ...

Re: Activating cell voltage measurement for/in OpenXSensor

Good to hear, it is OK now ;)

I tested cell voltage years ago, but never used it in real.

Total voltage is sufficient for me.

Re: Activating cell voltage measurement for/in OpenXSensor

Loaded the two config files from your first post.

Inserted those here, flashed the code to an Arduino uno, activated 'debug' and that is, what I see

That looks ok.

Re: oxs gps BN-220

Get used to work with u-center before fussing around with oXs and GPS. ;)

And when no USB UART is around, just use your Arduino to connect your GPS to u-center.

On the other hand I am not sure if it would be critical or not to use the 5V data / signal line (from a nano) to the 3.3 V data / signal line of the receiver.
