HobbyWing Platinum V4 ESC has telemetry feature built-in in the Programming port. This allows telemetry data transmission to the unit. To allow the ESC telemetry, it is necessary to have updated ESC as the older firmware versions were not supporting it.
1 Telemetry Cable
To allow the telemetry data transmission the Telem UNI cable is required. This cable is available in our Eshop.
Connect the Telemetry cable to the primary Spektrum satellite port in the unit. Smaller Spirit units will utilize the one native Spektrum satellite port (μSpirit - SAT port).
Servo connector of the Telem UNI cable should be connected to the ESC - programming port (P).
3 Spirit Settings
Power up the ESC and start the Spirit Settings as usually.
3.1 Telemetry activation
As the last step you have to set the ESC Telemetry in the Spirit Settings software.
Go to the Advanced/Telemetry settings and set the HobbyWing Platinum V4 option.
Then close the window and save the settings (CTRL+S). Finally, reconnect battery from the ESC.
From this moment, everything should work.
4 Displaying telemetry data
You can display telemetry data directly in your radio from now.
How to display the data is described in the integration guides:
