So i am trying to setup the Cube battery monitor.
When i configure the settings on Batt monitor, I get errors that it “Failed to set” I have been able to get it to work, setting Cube HV power meter and cube orange Hw version then set back to the correct settings ( this isnt working now tho).
Once reading voltage I would get constant Batt1 unhealth warnings.
I have set all the voltages for 3s and 3.5v/c and the voltage is 12.2v shows on HUD but even disabling the time value still gives the error.
Any ideas why I cant configure the power meter and the alarms?
In MissionPlanner go to Setup / Battery Monitor
Check that it looks like this:
Any changes to the “Monitor” “Sensor” or “HW Ver” need you to reboot the flight controller
Default values for voltage divider and Amps per volt should be fine.
Try setting the battery capacity to 0 and removing any other capacity values you might have entered.
Capacity is a very good measurement, but that can come later.
If you have a 3S Lipo these are the correct failsafe and motor scaling values:
BATT_FS_LOW_ACT,2 or 3
MissionPlanner Initial Parameters can give you those and a few more params if you have a copter.
If there appears to be any issue with those values, DO NOT change them → go after the cause of the issue, usually voltage sensing inaccuracy or a battery in owrse condition than what you expected.
Shawn, That’s much different than the User Manual!
I was able to get the settings to work by using those settings in the parameter list. Using the Setup menu was never able to work ( always had failed error)
I was able to setup the voltage alarms and they were triggered incorrectly at first but I was able to resolve it
The batteries are dipping on voltage doing quick maneuvers, so they are at the end of there lives and should be replaced. (I had my doubts but now I can see the data.)
Its unfortunate that the software and settings are not as shown in the manual.
