the postman gave me this "notsolittlething" few days agoAnd, despite my system is already working with no issues until now, I was wondering how to configure this "external relay" thing. Any advice about how to plug…"
"Thanks for the link John, But already solved the situation with cheap garbage that I had lying around... John Stuart said:
Have you checked this guy's products out? He has two that are soldered to the shutter button, one with focus and shutter, the…"
"The problem of that switch is that it has no mechanical relay, and when it "switchs off" it still remains open to minimal current, and then the signal of the camera still flows. I know that my English skills suck, but I'm doing my best xD.
kinda temporary solution; using the electronic switch that i had hanging around, hacking it a little (I soldered the "line in" to the "aux" in order to have an 5V output when switching on via RC), and powering the relay with those 5V…"
My pixhawk is already connected to servos and BEC, (its on a plane with many flights) servos are only connected to the "main out" not to the "AUX out", but I also tried with 1 servo connected to "aux out" (in order to create a "load") and I…"
"I may have not explained myself, or I'm not understanding your point. When not triggering photos there is 0.0V between "-" and "signal". When triggering the photo (set to 2.5s duration) this voltage goes up to 0.5 for those 2.5s."
"it's been a while configuring the mission planner, and testing with the multimeter (did not connect the relay nor the camera) and the output voltage measured is only 0.5V. I've to say that this voltage is totally unexpected!
I assume that the…"
"Hello again, and thank you a lot for your help!
dont worry about any responsibility, I am the guilty if anything goers wrong xD
Just came back from the electronic store near my home, bought arelay for 3$, Is for "dual channel" but will be using only…"
I am quite messed up with that link, dont really know where to plug what!
Lets assume that my ground cable is black, and the "trigger" cable is red, and red cable is 3.1V. When I short them the camera shots a photo. Where shall I plug…"
Hello all,I want to trigger my camera shorting 2 wires (soldered to the shutter button of a nex7), and I'm quite lost. Any advice? do I need any extra device or can i just plug it to a pixhawk output port? How to connect?The camera trigger is 3.1V,…
