[Designed & Assembled in California]

mRo AP_Peripheral / CAN Converter / RM3100 / DSP310

About the price: Half of the price tag goes to the solid RM3100 Compass. But after you test it, you won't go back.

The mRo KItCAN is a powerful kit of features+firmware via CAN that tackles most of the robotic applications out there. With just 4-wires [CAN] you can cleanly have access to the most powerful magnetometer available today, the best Barometric pressure sensor we ever used, GPS+I2C ports that supports all legacy uBlox GPS sensors and a firmware that supports our MS5525 Airspeed Sensor (via I2C). If that is not enough it also includes an RGB LED and Arm Switch/Button.

The idea is to allow the system integrator to mount all the sensors as far as possible -usually in the front of the fuselage or the tip of the wing- and run a single CAN cable to autopilot for a clean and robust setup. Or it can all be mounted together as follows:



[Quickstart]

Make sure you are using the latest version of Mission Planner. With the following firmware versions or newer:

ArduPlane >= V4.0.5
ArduCopter >= V4.0.3
ArduRover >= V4.0.0

Go to Full Parameter Tree on mission planner and verify those are enable (some firmware versions are enabled by default, some others are not)

CAN_P1_DRIVER - > 1
GPS_TYPE -> 9 UAVCAN

Then let's make sure the UAVCAN compass driver is not disabled (UAVCAN should be unchecked). If your controller has more than 3 internal compasses, you should disable the least important one:

COMPASS_TYPEMASK->UAVCAN (Unchecked)

Connect your mRo Location One to your controller via CAN and Restart.

NTF_LED_TYPE -> UAVCAN->Checked (Only if you want the RGB enabled)

If you want to enable the I2C airspeed, on the autopilot/controller parameters via mission planner set:

ARSP_TYPE -> 8 UAVCAN

Then you must access your mRo Location One CAN parameters, follow those steps:

Mission Planner->Initial Setup->Optional Hardware->UAVCAN-> SLCan Mode CAN1 (or 2) -> Parameters

1 min later inside the CAN Parameters change the following:

ARSP_TYPE -> 1
For
mRo I2C Airspeed Sensor JST-GH MS4525DO

ARSP_TYPE -> 4
For
mRo Next-Gen MS5525 Airspeed Sensor


Write and reboot! Enjoy.

STM32F303 ARM Microcontroller

Distances between holes (center to center): 14mm x 31.5mm
