The FrSky Smart Port Current Sensor has been designed to work with FrSky Smart Port systems, it can measure the current (A) and battery voltage (V) when connected between a battery and an ESC. Other FrSky Smart Port enabled sensors including the variometer, Lipo voltage, GPS, RPM and airspeed sensors can be used at the same time. The sensor is fitted with XT60 male and female connectors and a male to male JR type lead is also supplied.
Please note: The FrSky Smart Port Current Sensor is only compatible with FrSky Smart Port enabled receivers such as the X8R, X6R and X4R.
Maximum Safe Current: 40A
Maximum Battery Voltage: 6S (22.2V)
Measurement Range: 0~40A
Current Comsumption: 25mA@5V
A must have sensor for my X8R Rx. I use it with FLVSS to see mAh drawn and Amperes.Great for small models, keeps you informed about current usage on model... i use it on my plane.Whilst I am using it purely for novelty value at the moment, this will be a valuable tool to assist in getting the right propellor, engine combo in my next plane. Being able to log the data and review it in charts on your computer is quite neat and adds another dimension to our hobby. But it also become valuable information to see what effect fitting that slightly larger propeller or a propeller with a different pitch had on motor performance and current drain. If you take more than a passing interest in the performance of your electric plane, this is a very worthwhile addition to your flight gear.
