I’m using a Matbotix Analog Sonar that I connected to my Pixhawk’s ADC3.3V port as described in http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-rangefinder-maxbotix-analog.html
The analog Sonar signal is connected to pin 14 (as per http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-pixhawk-overview.html). My problem is that I can’t select that input pin (14) to the RNGFND_PIN (Rangefinder pin) parameter in Mission Planner. The dropdown list allows: 0-9 (APM2) 11 (PX4), 15 (ADC6.6v port) or 64 (APM1).
I recall that in some previous version of Mission Planer this parameter didn’t have the dropdown list and I was able to manually input the number “14”. Is there a reason why this was restricted?
BTW, pin 13 (which is also available in the Pixhawk ADC3.3v port) is also missing from the selectable values in the RNGFND_PIN dropdown list.
You can always insert any value you want in the Full Parameter list as shown in your first link - we should fix the documentation though.
Thanks Francisco. I hadn’t seen the Full Parameters List in Mission Planner for a while and assumed it had been removed. Clearly my mistake. Following your message, I looked for it again and found the way to access it by setting Mission Planner Layout to “Advanced”. I can now manually configure the RNGFND_PIN to 14 as I had done in the past. Thanks!.
Is there any reason why pins 13 and 14 are not selectable options in the dropdown menu for RNGFND_PIN?
Looking at it, I would say it was copied from another place and wasn’t adapted properly. Do you want to open an issue in our GitHub?
Yes. Will do. Thanks for looking into this.
Hi, having the same problem now.
Still not implemented in 3.5
which pin (RNGFND_PIN) is the adc pin for pixhawk 2.1 cube black ? @darcopter @OXINARF
Rngfnd2_pin = 4로 하였을경우 의미하는 것을 알 수 있을까요?
