Hi,

I'm trying to cofigure the 7-seg outputs for the ELEC panel (incl FLT ALT & LAND ALt).

I can't find the references in the list when adding output for sim-a.

Anyone an idea?

Thx..

Hi Geert,

Download the file/XML for PM in the Interface IT Server....its works for Sim-A too.

Nothing to configure Smile

Do you have the FDS-Elec/Cab unit?
This is used for the 7seg displays, rotaries and can cover the other hardware parts on those two panels.
Steve can help perhaps.
Need to clarify if you have the elec-cab unit though.
Nat is 100% correct if you are using the Elec-Cab unit.

I also have the panel and just a question on the rotaries themselves. On one rotary and the turning of the knob, you feel what I call the nubs, so when you're setting the value and you turn it slow the values occur almost 1:1. Meaning one nub felt and 100ft change a value in the display.

Now, if you turn the rotary to fast, you can spin it 20 nubs at a time, but you might get a difference of only 500ft in value on the display. Thus, the question is there a way to adjust the amount of value change for the display versus the amount of turns (or nubs felt)?

In addition, the rotaries are different in the way they turn (nubs again), with the FLT Alt it takes forever for to set it to cruise alt (FL380 for example). Yet, it seems like the LAND Alt turns value change faster in relation to the amount of turns. I thought just to switch the rotaries around, but that is the second question. Is there an actual physical difference with the internals of these rotaries?

Finally, if not a physical difference, is there an intended differences in the rotaries' settings with ELEC Panel XML setup or are they meant to be the same? If there is an intended difference, how do I tell this?

500 per turn on the ALT and 50 per LDG ALT.

If you are using PM the settings need to be adjusted. Go to the offsets and change the value the above numbers.

Brilliant tip Steve!

Ill admit I didnt even think to check wether these were adjustable.
An NG captain friend(his name is Steve also) asked me to set LDG ALT to 450 last week during a test flight...I said sorry 400 or 500...!

Thank you Steve!

Yes, Simlady (the wife) and I were flying today from KMSP to KDEN and she did the FO duties and I had her set the FLT and LAND Alt. She was like "OMG, this takes forever", and then it somehow reset itself to 0 just after she turned it to FL380 for the FLT...it was funny listening to her on it.

Anyway, I told her I had posted about it and likely it was a setting somewhere, too bad I didn't check back a little sooner. Oh well, she needed a little more turning on anyway...lol...or turning it higher. :-)

Thanks so much,

BSD
