90-100 amp sensor

Post by kerryball »

I can see there is only two current sensors in the "X" range FrSky Rxs: 40 & 150; is it possible to buils a compatible 80-100 current sensor ?

Just for information, the 150A sensor may be turned into a 75A sensor simply by looping the current carrying wire through the sensor twice.
It will then count the current twice so you then need to divide the measured value by 2 in the Tx.

The difficult we do immediately,
The impossible takes a little longer!
