thanks mstrens it is what i thought, there is only one current sensor parameter in config advanced.A friend want to put a 7a with 30a so he needs two openxsensor on his smartport receiver to do the job.

Indeed there is only one slot for current data. But a few for voltage. A workaround is to scale and transmit the voltage output of a 2nd current sensor and change unit and name in OpenTX later.
