B737NG OVERHEAD SYS Board Wiring Config Chart

Post by pcos »

Folks,
To help those that are wiring their own B737NG Overheads this chart is likely a great help. This is our current config, uses one SYS1 and one SYS2 board.
The LED placement is designed for maximum brightness and allows you to isolate different LED types to their own pin numbers. Cery important on the SYS1 when you have up to 256 devices running.
A "powered" USB hub is ideal and suggested as well.
Nice to do a B737NG Overhead and have one USB cable running down to the Computers!

I will update the sheet to show more functionality shortly.
There are more Boards and options that can be added.
the NG has over 105 Annuns and easily as many switch states.

Mr Cos

Is there a way where I can download the InterfaceIT XML file based on above mentioned doc which we used to do the overhead (cfr post about my crash and loss of my XML file...)

Thanks

Hi,

Does anyone has a picture of the wired back side of the overhead panel based on the doc Peter provided?

I'm receiving my overhead panel items in the coming 2-3 months. (Just ordered them) :lol:

Thx.

Hi Pete,

Do you ever get around to updating the wiring sheet?

Do you have any pictures of how the overhead looks?

Hi Pete

It would be great if you have some pics of the overhead setup that you could attach to this post as I would find it really helpful.

Thanks
Alex
