APM and BlinkM Max

Hello Everyone,

I've been using a blinkM mini as an external LED to indicate "armed or disarmed" on my APM 2.6.

I would like to use a blinkM Max for the same purpose but the blinkM max draws way too much current for the APM so what I would like to know is

1. Can the BlinkM read the pwm signals from the APM and be powered separately?

2. Do I need something like the JR i/o board?

3. If it is possible for BlinkM Max to read the pwm signals from the APM and be powered separately could someone give me some specifics on the connections?

thanks

Ryan

  • How do you wire the BLINKM to your apm?
    • Well I have it wired to output 6 on the APM. + to S(signal} and - to -. But the blinkM mini only draws about 50ma.
