Hi and thanks for looking!
I am building a RC multicopter, the design of which has already been helped along greatly by members of this community! Thank you.
On the underside of the aircraft, I have mounted a project enclosure box into which I am cramming a few sensors (all soldered either directly or with short leads (< 5cm) to a PCB which is run by an ATMega328), the RC receiver (2.4GHz Turnigy 9X), and the power distribution board. The dimensions of the enclosure are approximately 8cm x 16cm x 6cm so it is a pretty tight space.
Sensors & Equipment (linked to the actual product page):
- Digital Barometric Sensor
- SD Card Reader
- Camera module
- Turnigy 9X receiver
- Additional transceiver for Tx/Rx of telemetry data
- Angle sensor
First, should I be worried about these items causing detrimental electrical interference with one another?
If so, what is the best way to shied these items to prevent said interference? I was thinking that--due to the small size of these sensors--I could simply cover them with a small piece of aluminum foil and then cover the foil with a small piece of electrical tape.
So, for example, the ultrasonic sensor (sonar) is mounted to the wall of the enclosure with the two transducers(?) nested in holes drilled in the enclosure wall so that it points outward away from the other components. Should I now cover the back of this module with foil/tape? Would heat be a problem?
Thanks in advance!
