Electronic reporting device & luminous

From the 29 June 2020 drones weighing more than 800g must be equipped with an electronic and light signaling device that complies with the decree of 27 December 2019.

One module for both functions !

Dronotique has developed a device combining these two reporting functionalities in a single module.

The same device as the’Alfonce Signal XS but in a removable case with the possibility of using bases for different types of drones.

If you are looking for the module without built-in battery refer to the’Alfonce Signal

Description

Electronic reporting device & luminous

From the 29 June 2020 drones over 800g must be equipped with an electronic and light signaling device conforming tostop of 27 December 2019.

In a way it is a transponder (beacon) for your drone which sends in WiFi the position and the trajectory of the drone, as well as the takeoff point. It allows authorities to remotely identify flying drones and their owners.

One module for both functions !

Dronotique has developed a device combining these two reporting functionalities in a single module.

An adaptable device :

  • Compatible NMEA (GPS) and Mavlink
  • Internal or external GPS
  • Mavlink or GPS port replication
  • Light signal management
  • Customizable
  • Input voltage 5-25V (6S)
  • Housing with removable system

An evolving device :

  • Firmware updatable
  • Ability to change Mavlink / NMEA protocol
  • ID to International Standard ANSI / CTA-2063-A

Technical characteristics

FoodLiPo/LiIon 2 at 6S (or 5V via the UART1 socket)
Dimensions35x29x8mm (out of case)
Weight <15g (excluding housing and GPS)
Consumption~1W (excluding external leds)
Signal broadcastWifi Canal 6 2437 MHz
AntennaExternal
Supported protocolsNMEA (GPS) ou Mavlink
ConnectorsJST-GH (identical Pixhawk 4 and Cube)

 

Three use cases

Use as a completely independent device

Signaling device for drones - independent use case

 

GPS is connected directly to the device

The device is completely independent of the flight controller

The protocol is that of GPS – NMEA

 

Use in independent module and as GPS for flight controller

Signaling device for drones - use case, connected to a Mavlink flight controller and a GPS

The device is connected directly to the GPS

It is also connected to a telemetry port

GPS signal is replicated to the telemetry port

The protocol is that of GPS - NMEA

Use connected to the flight controller (compatible Mavlink)

Electronic and light signaling device for drones - Mavlink

The device and the GPS are connected to the flight controller

The device extracts the GPS position from Mavlink frames

The Mavlink stream is replicated on the secondary port

A telemetry module is installed there

The protocol is that of the flight controller – Mavlink

 

Light signaling

The decree of 27 December 2019 defining the technical characteristics of the electronic and light signaling devices of aircraft operating without a person on board specified in its chapter 2, article 5 :

1° The use of the colors red and white is prohibited for the signaling of aircraft operating without anyone on board ;
2° The signaling light must be visible at night by a ground observer, up to a flight height of at least 150 meters and within a radius on the ground of at least 150 meters from its verticality.

L & rsquo; Alfonce Signal uses blue LEDs meeting these characteristics. You can order it as a ribbon, or install your own 5V tapes.

A custom box

A removable case in order to be able to easily use the module on several drones. A quick attach system allows you to disassemble the case from its base and move it to another drone.

Installation on drone arm
Installation of the Alfonce Signal signaling device on the arm of a drone

Enclosures are available in 2 version :

  • version with GPS (upper)
  • version without GPS, ideal for using the module with an external GPS or via a Mavlink flight controller

Depending on the base you can fix the devices :

  • on the landing gear of a DJI Phantom
  • on the tubular arm of a drone
  • on a plate via screws (21mm centers)

Possibility to order additional bases, with or without battery as well as led strips

And don't forget to ask your questions about the dedicated forum

For proper operation, remember to orient the module well (GPS antenna up).
