Hi there,

I am building an A320 with PM and SYS3 too. Here we go:

Master caution & Master warning: Not modelled yet in PM. However, you can program these in pmSystems yourself. Not difficult, but requires some time and thinking. We should be seeing this developed by PM in the future.

Autobreaks: Not modelled in PM either. You can use the FSUIPC offsets. There is however an application being developed by Thomas Richter that implements this logics. Please see: http://www.technical-service-richter.com/

GPWS: You can get the GPWS led to light up when you are below the glideslope. Use the FSUIPC offset for this one.

Autoland annunciator and Sidestick priority: Again, not modelled by PM. You can program it in pmSystems. Worth mentioning here is FS COMMUNICATOR by Robert Fischer. This programs handles the Fly By Wire functions and protections of the airbus quite nicely (although not easy to configure). Among other features, there is the implementation of the Autoland indicator and Sidestick priority management. Right now these are not interfaceable, but the author is working in programming offsets for this purpose.

As you see the way for us PM Airbus builders is far more difficult at the moment than for AST followers...

I can send you my XML files for Autobreaks and GPWS (please PM me with your email). I started programming the Master caution and Master warning in pmSystems, and I will complete it some day (already working partially), but I don't have enough time right now so I had to stop (other sim aspects require more attention right now).

Hope it helps.

I already did share some xml files you had Luis with him.

But as you mention PM doesn't have much yet to make functional in combination with the sys boards..

But you also were aware of that when you asked me that same question.

Thanks for your sharing Smile

Stephane,

Check your email once more. I sent you the individual XML files for each switch and led on my setup.

Please let me know if you need something else.
