Stratux AHRS Board + Fan Controler

  • Sale
  • $16.00


Intro:-

Connect this to your already Assembled Stratux ADS-B Receiver to add AHRS and automated fan speed control based on CPU Temp. Connect as depicted in the pictures below. 

Important Notes:-

You will need to add a special image to your micro sd card. The special image can be found at:- https://github.com/cyoung/stratux/releases Please scroll down until you see a list of blue hyperlinks and click on the file name that ends in .img.zip Or use this direct download link:-  https://github.com/cyoung/stratux/releases/download/v1.3b3/stratux-v1.3b3-74909ada85.img.zip

Once that has been downloaded (the zipped image file),  follow this guide as you watch the video below. Do note that you will skip the part of downloading the image off the stratux.me page, as you need to use the special image file that we downloaded above. All the other steps are exactly the same including how to unzip the file. 

Lastly, please note that the AHRS board does not currently work with ForeFlight's Synthetic Vision. The hardware of the board will be supported in future main branch updates (we are still waiting for the software to get up to speed).

The fan controller will work no matter what app you use as long as you have the most current update. If you use Foreflight, and will just be waiting for its future ARHS support, then you can go ahead and just use the main branch image file on the stratux.me page - as depicted in the video/document above.

Pictures:-

Connect the board as depicted below. Make sure to orientate the fan connector correctly. The fan won't start to work until the Stratux is fully booted. The fan is now a good indication of when you should see the Stratux network show up in your wifi list.

Lastly, the new light indications are as follows:

Booting:-

Solid red light until you connect to the Stratux wifi. Once connected the green light will turn solid.

Booted:-

Both lights are solid in color.

Shutting down:-

Flashing green light accompanied by a solid red light and the fan shutting off. Once you see the green light turn solid again, and the fan stop, you can safely unplug the power.

The pictures below are to just show what pins the module goes onto. You do not have to remove the computer. It should slip on the pins if you gently lift the lid and unplug the fan. In the picture above the left forward facing pin is for the positive (+) fan connector that is red. Therefore, the right side is for the negative (-) fan connector that is black.
