Power

Veronte can use unregulated DC (6.5V to 36V) for a total electrical power consumption of 4W including radio module and 10W including both radio and Vision. Pins used for power and ground are the same for both Ground and Air/Vision configurations.

Veronte Power and Ground Pins

LiPo batteries between 2S and 8S can be used without regulation needs. Remaining batteries can be controlled by the internal voltage sensor and by configuring the voltage warnings on the PC application.

For higher voltage installations, voltage regulators must be used. For dimensioning voltage regulators take into account that a blocked servo can activate regulator thermal protection and carry to a power cut. It is recommended to use Embention high performance UAV regulators.

Caution!! Power Veronte out of the given range can cause irreversible damage to the system. Please read carefully the manual before powering the system.

 

Veronte and servos can be powered by the same or different batteries, in case there is more than one battery on the system it is needed to ensure a single union of different ground. The ground signal should be isolated from other system ground references (e.g. engines).

It is recommendable to use independent switches for autopilot and motor / actuators. During the system initialization, PWM signal will be fixed to low level (0V), please make sure that actuators / motor connected support this behaviour before installing a single switch for the whole system.

By default, channel 8 is reserved for manual / auto switch. High level is used for automatic flight and low level for manual control. This channel can be configured on Veronte Pipe.

Caution!! PPM signal must be into the PPM ranges given with voltage above 4V. Some joysticks may need an adaptationboard, please ask our team to check compatibility.

Micro D connector for CS is provided with 3.5mm stereo plug connector as follows:
