  • 1~10: CH1~CH10 PWM outputs

  • Curr: current sensor signal (0~3.3V)

  • Vbat: Battery voltage sensing (0~36V)

  • G: ground

  • 4v5 pad voltage = 5V pad voltage -0.3V, make sure the voltage on 5V pad is not higher than receiver and GPS rated voltage.

Failsafe

  • Failsafe value is set automatically after CRSF-PWM board is powered on and receive CRSF signal. LED blinks 8 times quickly.

  • Failsafe value = The PWM value of each channel(except CH3) when CRSF signal is received by CRSF-PWM board for the first time

  • CH3 is specially arranged for the throttle, Failsafe value = 988 by default.

  • Usually put the Throttle joystick to the lowest point, put AIL(Roll), ELE(Pitch), RUD(Yaw) middle before powering on receiver.

LED status

  • slow blinks: CRSF-PWM board doesn’t receive CRSF signal, e.g., receiver is not bound with transmitter, receiver is not connected to UART1 of CRSF-PWM board.

  • 8x quick blinks: CRSF-PWM board received CRSF signal and failsafe value is saved.

  • solid ON: CRSF-PWM board and receiver are working normally

  • 2x slow blinks between 8x fast blink and solid on: CLI mode is active

GPS telemetry

  • Compatible with GPS NMEA protocol

  • GPS “TX” to CRSF-PWM board “RX” Single wire half duplex UART connection, CRSF-PWM board “TX” to GPS “RX” is not essential.

  • Support GPS Telemetry ID: GPS, GSpd, Hdg, Alt, Sats

  • u-blox series GPS can output “0+1 – UBX+NMEA” protocol by default

  • Sensors(GPS, GSpd, Hdg, Alt, Sats) will blink in Transmitter TELEMETRY tab once CRSF-PWM board has connection with GPS.

  • Troubleshooting for no GPS telemetry, double check the wiring between GPS and CRSF-PWM board, some u-blox GPS may don’t output NMEA protcol, you need to be reverted GPS to default configuration in u-center.

TIM & PWM Frequency

  • PWM frequency on all 10x Channels can be configured according to TIM

  • PWM run at 50Hz by default

  • TIM2: CH1, CH2, CH4

  • TIM16: CH3

  • TIM3: CH5, CH6, CH7, CH8

  • TIM1: CH9, CH10

CLI mode

  • If CRSF-PWM board doesn’t detect GPS connected to UART2 within 10 seconds after powering on, CLI mode will active.

  • After CLI mode is active, CRSF-PWM board can be connected to configurator via USB-TTL module/FC passthrough.

  • in CLI mode, CRSF-PWM board firmware can be updated

  • CLI mode has no effect to receiver CRSF signal and PWM outputs

  • Tool:

  • Usually Analog servos work at 50Hz only, some digital servos can work at 400Hz. ESC supported by oneshot/DShot can work at 400Hz PWM

  • e.g. type “set TIM16 = 400”, PWM output on CH3 will be 400Hz

  • e.g. type “set TIM2 = 100”, PWM output on CH1, CH2,CH4 will be 100Hz

get scale
  • vbat_scale = 110;

  • current_scale = 150;

get battery

list Battery voltage and current, Even if there is no current through the shunt resistor, there may be a certain current reading due to the offset and tolerance of current sensor.

  • voltage = 0(mV);

  • current = 0(mA);

set vbat_scale = [x](60 – 210)
  • 1K:10K resistor: 110 by default

  • Because of components tolerance you can adjust this to match with multimeter readout.

set current_scale = [x](50 – 500)
  • current_scale = 150 by default

  • If current readout 10A on telemetry, 10.8A on current meter, you can set the scale to (10.8/10)*150=162

  • For using external current sensor on CRSF-PWM-6, You can adjust this value to match with the scale of external current sensor.
