Using multiple VRMs

Is it legal to use multiple VRMs on your robot?

Yes, But you’ll have to power them off a channel off your PDP. You can only have one VRM off the VRM port, and that VRM must have only one radio connected to the 12v/2A port. Your better bet is to obtain something off amazon if you need 5 or 12 volts regulated, The CTRE VRMs are not the greatest at their job.

I see, thank you for the help!

For powering the robot radio you can use the new Radio Power Module. From what I have seen it has better power regulation and a lower drop-out voltage than the old VRM. This way you can keep using the VRM for other things.
