I believe that I have searched every post on the internet related to the Power Brick Mini, and there are two questions that I can not seem to find the answer to:
1.Will the PB Mini provide current sensing to the Cube? There are multiple threads on this forum that dead end with this question, but never an answer…
- What are the specs on the voltage reg built into the PB mini? Specifically the amp output, I understand the voltage is 5V nominal.
Nothing about the v-reg specs are listed on the product page:
Additionally- from what I understand an RFD 900x can not be run at full power (1 Watt/30dbm) through the telemetry port on the Cube, regardless of the power supply feeding the Cube. RFD 900x draws ~800ma at full power. Can anybody confirm.
I have Mauch v-regs and sensor hardware, and I understand that is a better way to go. But as I have a large pile of these PB minis ( I have purchased several dozen cubes at this point). I would love to know what the specs are and why I have never been able to get a current reading out of them. Another strange behavior that I see is increases in voltage readings (from PB mini) displayed on Mission planner and QGC when under load.
Any thoughts on this would be most appreciated. Thank you for your time.
