Hardware Type

 The type of hardware connected. This effects the options available in source lists.

Potentiometers

Pot

A potentiometer (knob) that smoothly travels through its range of motion.

Multipos

A three position switch with positions:

  • SW↑ Up/Away from the user
  • SW− Middle/Centre
  • SW↓ Down/Towards the user

Max Bauds

Adjusts the maximum communication speed with a crossfire module in the external module bay. This is only on the Taranis Q X7 series transmitters.

Serial Port

This configure the signals that get sent to the  serial port in the battery bay.T This is only on the Taranis Q X9 series of transmitters.

S-Port Mirror

The same signal that goes to the external module bay’s s-port pin goes to the serial port.

Telemetry

The serial port can be used to connect to a telemetry display.

SBUS Trained

The serial port can be used to connect an instructor’s and student’s transmitters.

ADC filter

Analog to digital converters may have their values change even when there is no movement of the analog source. The values may jump around. This smooths the values by averaging them.
