Note: PM02D HV version is not support in Ardupilot at this moment. Support coming soon.
PM02D provides regulated power supply for your Pixhawk® 5X & 6X from the battery, as well as current consumption and battery voltage measurements, all through a 6pin cable. The on-board switching regulator outputs 5.2V and a maximum of 3A from LiPo batteries up to 6S (LV) or 12S (HV). The Power Module comes completely assembled with XT60 connectors, wrapped in shrink tubing for physical damage protection.
It is not designed to power servos, please use your aircraft's ESC/BEC for that. The Molex 2.00mm pitch CLIK-Mate Wire-to-Board connector is rated for 3.0A current per contact.
Note: PM02D uses I2C digital signal data output and not compatible with Pixhawk 6C, Pixhawk4, Pixhawk4 Mini, pix32 v5, or Durandal flight controllers.
