How should this current sensor be connected to a Archer SR8 PRO Access receiver?

Thak's for the answer. 
But the receiver don't have a s-port connection only sbus in or sbus out. I have tried to connect the current sensor to the sbus in but Ethos cannot see any external telemetry sensors.

This is my first FRSky radio and receiver 🙂

SR8 Pro

The S-port uses 3 of the wires from the small plug on the left hand end.  -  +  S

There should have been a plug with the receiver, with these 3 wires connected. Do not use the AN2 connection.

Please e-mail me if you need more information.
