On one hand, the power module incorporates a way to power the autopilot and drones accessories, on the other, it reports battery voltage and current to the PXF. All through a single and tightly included 6-pin cable that matches the PXF’s connector. The on-board switching regulator outputs 5.3V at a maximum of 2.25A and it can be used up to 18 V (4S LiPo) at a maximum of 90 amps. The Power Module is ready to use with XT60 connectors pre-fitted, and shrink wrapped for protection.
Note: The Power Module is rated at 2.25 Amps to power ONLY the PXF’s, receiver and peripherals (GPS and Telemetry radio). If you want to power servos use an ESC with an adequate BEC or a standalone BEC plugged into the output bus, then, remove jumper 1 to isolate the two power lines.
Besides the traditional power module, at Erle Robotics, we've developed a Dual Power Module that allows to supply power to the drone using two sources. With this if one of the sources fails the drone automatically switches into the other one.
