VTI SCP1000-D01 (SPI)

Overview

The VTI SCP1000-D01 (SPI) is a barometer/pressure sensor. Unfortunately this device is no longer being produced.

The corresponding I2C device was tested in a simple static noise comparsion setup.

Module name sensors/baro_scp
Sensor type barometer, temperature
Range (baro) 30kPa .. 120kPa
Range (temp) -30°C .. +85°C
Resolution (baro) 0.25Pa
Resolution (temp) 0.05°C
Refresh rate 1.8Hz

Product data sheet

Hardware

The sensor directly interfaces to the 3.3V SPI port of the autopilots and is supplied by +3.3V.

Usage

To use it load the baro_scp module:

File: conf/airframes/myplane.xml
  <modules>
    ...
    <load name="baro_scp.xml"/>
  </modules>

Configuration

To see the sensors data in the log file set the SENSOR_SYNC_SEND in your airframe file. Every time new data is available it will be sent directly.

File: conf/airframes/myplane.xml
  <modules>
    ...
    <load name="baro_scp.xml">
      <define name="SENSOR_SYNC_SEND"/>
    </load>
  </modules>

Result message

There is no conversion needed so the raw data is output, the pressure is given in 1/100 of Pascal.

File: conf/messages.xml
  <message name="SCP_STATUS" id="88">
    <field name="press" type="uint32" unit="Pa"/>
    <field name="temp" type="int16" unit="100x_deg_celsius"/>
  </message>
