Sometimes my lipos charge with FMA setting rather than EX/EH

so is there anything wrong charging with FMA rather than EX/EH
FMA wiring mode was the only wiring mode available when the charger was released in 2010. It also required using FMA adapter boards that supported FMA wiring mode.

Several years ago XH wiring mode became available through a firmware update. It allows greater compatibility with third party balance boards.

When using the MPA board the charger must be set to XH wiring mode.

The specific wiring differences can be found in the FMA documentation.

Default Using Separate Power Supplies

One more question (which may have been answered but I can't remember).

I have my DPL and Bump mounted in a charge case. They are both connected to the same power supply so they are powered up and powered down simultaneously.

I have my old PL8 on a shelf that sits 2 feet behind the case and is powered by a separate power supply.

I want to verify that I can connect the separate PL8 to the Bump with a 48" servo extension and use the 3rd channel on the Bump to control that PL8.

Is this ok, or does the separate PL8 have to be connected to the same ground/power supply (and powered up simultaneously with the DPL & PSU in the case)?

Thanks.

Yes, it does need to have the power ground connected before powering up, but once the ground is interconnected, the supplies can be powered on/off independently.

Thanks Kelly.

I'm using Meanwell & Cosel power supplies which don't have on/off switches.

At the rate I'm charging (during outdoor season), I think adding the PL8 to the DPL and Bump will be too much for (1) 110v AC circuit anyway.
