I'm having a problem understanding how the FDS-WXR Panel Dual Pot Tilt/Gain Pots wire to the PDS-FC1 joystick card. The 6 pin connector supplied for the Dual Tilt/Gain only has 3 wires Black/Red/White.

The FDS-FC1 Card requires 3 connections per Pot.

Pin 1 = GND
Pin 2 = Pot Output
Pin 2 = 5 vdc

I'm sure that I'm complicating a simple solution, but some help would be appreciated.

Hi Pat,

I just emailed you the manual. You will see in the wiring there are 2 plugs per dual dimmer. They share the + and the - but have 2 seperate wires for the "wiper". Plug all 4 plugs into the FC1.

Calibrate in Windows and press "Apply".

Assign in the SYSBoard Controller the switches and the Pots. Or however you do it with your new setup.
