I am trying to integrate the Mauch Power Module into a heavy lift design. I need to be able to track the voltage and current during the flight. Here’s a link to the part:
When you receive one of these sensors it comes with a slip of paper that has the voltage divider and the A/V value. You’re supposed to be able to use these values, but i think they are more for ardupilot. I found some forums discussing this, but the scale values didn’t work for me.
The voltage was quite skewed with these values. I know how to calibrate the voltage sensor correctly, but i am not aware how to calibrate the current sensor without operating a decent sized load which is not very safe. Any ideas how to go about measuring the current under a viable load safely?
