Re: OpenXSensor @8MHz

Hi, @mstrens, You'll find attached my modified version of OXS: - MCP9700A temp sensor support added - Some parameters added in oxs_config.h (arduino vcc, temp sensor related, debug related...) - oxs_arduino renamed with oxs_voltage - numerous little cosmetics mods I hope you'll find these mods inter...

Re: Probs between Companion and Taranis

Hi,

When you connect the radio in bootloader mode to the PC with the USB cable, 2 removable disks should appear (one named "TARANIS") in your file browser.

Then, Companion will recognize the Taranis.

If you don't get these removable disks, that's a windows problem...

Re: OpenXSensor @8MHz

I've written oxs_temp.h and .cpp files for the MCP9700A sensor, it seems to work fine :) They still need to polished, then I will forward them to you. Just one thing, I'd like to get 1 decimal after the point but it must be on the OpenTX side I guess ? I retrieved the MS5611 temperature with varioDa...

Re: OpenXSensor @8MHz

Hi,

I'm progressing with my temp sensor integration and while doing so, I wondered if the files oxs_arduino.h and oxs_arduino.cpp could not be renamed as oxs_voltage.x because that's all they are doing, measuring voltages ;)

Re: OpenXSensor @8MHz

Yes, I've already read oxs_config.h but if you look at the code I've posted, there is a compensation error calculation and I don't think I could use it with the current OXS code. By the way, this temp sensor should have a 0.5°C precision so perhaps it could be used to compensate the drifting of the ...

Re: "No Radio was found" Taranis X9D

Hi,

You clearly don't have the bootloader so you have to flash your radio in DFU mode, it means: radio switched off then plug the USB cable.
More details here: http://www.open-tx.org/2013/08/22/opent ... manual-en/ in the paragraph "Flashing your Taranis radio"

Re: GVARs having a local scope.

@rug,

I understand that you want a global variable to be valid across several flight modes at the same time.

If so, it's indeed possible, as an example:

Re: OpenXSensor @8MHz

The allegro ACS712 datasheet says 4.5v minimum, and current sensors that work with 3.3v do exist (ACS716...). There is no particular advantage, lower consumption but it's not critical, just the possibility to use only 1 lipo cell. I'm planning to put an oxs in a mini DLG powered with...1 lipo cell ;)

Yes, there is a chance that arduino 16MHz could run with 3.5v but I would prefer to give it a stable 3.3v and use it as a reference for analog ports.

Re: OpenXSensor @8MHz

Hi,

I'm really interested in using an OXS at 3.3v - 8Mhz in a dlg glider powered by a single lipo.

Could this setting be included in the oxs_config.h or could it be automatic ?
