lets you custom configure the monitor for your setup. There are 20
voltage ranges, Normal & Low PLV Ranges, plus the choice of glitch or failsafe
indicate the AV (Averaged Voltage).
The average is not a simple running average, it's a
proprietary algorithm that emphasizes filtering out down
spikes in voltage from sudden servo current for a better
quality reading. Table
1 in the operation guide lists all the voltage
ranges, each LED is a 0.1 volt increment.
LED 1 blinks, it's counting glitches. If LED 5-8 is blinking, it's indicating
PLV or OV (Peak Low Voltage or OverVoltage).
Note: If it blinks the same
LED that is lit for Averaged Voltage, it blinks off. Table
2 in the operation guide lists the PLV/OV trigger
3 in the operation guide lists the trigger points for the
The version with 2 yellow LEDs is depicted. The 2 red LED
version operates similarly, LED 7 being red instead of yellow.
||AV extra Low
1-2 blinks = PLV extra Low
||AV very Low
||2 blinks = PLV very Low
||1-2 blinks = PLV Low
||1-2 blinks = PLV near Yellow or OV
||Blink = Glitch (Failsafe) count
least one LED will always be lit showing AV. You
could have up to three LEDs lit at one time: one showing the AV
(any of the LEDs), one blinking to show the PLV or OV
(LEDs 5-8), and one blinking the Glitch/Failsafe count (always LED
1). If the AV is lighting up the same LED that
blinks, it will blink off quickly instead

There are multiple ranges covering 4 or 5 cell Ni
(NiCd or NiMh), voltage regulators, 6.6 A123-LiFe and
7.4 volt Li (Lithium) batteries.
For these animations we have selected a 4-cell
Ni battery range that has Averaged
from 5.50 to 4.80 volts.
Green LED 1 = 5.5
Green LED 2 = 5.4
Green LED 3 = 5.3
Green LED 4 = 5.2
Green LED 5 = 5.1
Yellow LED 6
Yellow LED 7
Red LED 8 = 4.8
We have also selected Normal
Range for the Peak Low Voltage (PLV)
for the animations.
Grn LED 5 1 blink
Grn LED 5 2 blink = 4.3
Yllw LED 6 1 blink
Yllw LED 6 2 blink = 4.1
Yllw LED 7 2 blink = 4.0
Red LED 8 1
blink = 3.9
Red LED 8 2 blink = 3.8
Glitch or Failsafe
1 blink = 1 glitch
2 blinks = 2 to 3 glitches
3 blinks = 4 to 7 glitches
and so on.
