I'm considering using a PowerBox Sensor switch to run two receivers, but want to understand what is truly meant by the outputs being fed from independent regulators.
If I set up each input on a separate lipo and send output 1 to receiver 1 and output 2 to receiver 2 (ie completely separate systems) then, the condition I would like to protect myself from is if receiver 1 (or servos attached to it was to suddenly short circuit and produce a high current drain situation. Would the voltage on the other output (output 2) be protected, or would it be dragged down by the fault on receiver 1?
Another way to describe the situation would be if the switch was set up with two separate lipos, but the outputs were connected to two separate resistors of 10 Ohms. This should result in both outputs having a voltage of 5.9v and a current of about 0.59A. As the resistance on one of the resistors is reduced lower than 1 Ohm, then the current on that output would exceed 5 Amps and the voltage would start to drop. But I need to understand if the voltage on the second output would be protected at 5.9v.?
...ie is it possible under high load conditions for the voltages on each output to be different, or are they common within the switch?
