    Post Overhead window heat logic

    Hello Simmers,

    Actually I have finished the logic of window heat. Here it is.
    Open the default pmsys737.lgc and find those lines below.

    WindowHeatSLOn = (WindowHeatSL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1
    WindowHeatSROn = (WindowHeatSR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1
    WindowHeatFLOn = (WindowHeatFL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2
    WindowHeatFROn = (WindowHeatFR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2

    WindowOverHeatSL = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    WindowOverHeatFL = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    WindowOverHeatSR = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    WindowOverHeatFR = (testheat = 0) [.2]

    Make all those lines unable using // like below
    //WindowOverHeatSL = (testheat = 0) [.2]

    Insert my below logic
    //WINDOW HEAT (Start)
    WindowHeatSLC1 = WindowHeatSL [150]
    WindowHeatFLC1 = WindowHeatFL [120]
    WindowHeatFRC1 = WindowHeatFR [120]
    WindowHeatSRC1 = WindowHeatSR [150]
    WindowHeatSLOnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowHeatFLOnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowHeatFROnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowHeatSROnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowOverHeatSL = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatSLC1))
    WindowOverHeatFL = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatFLC1))
    WindowOverHeatFR = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatFRC1))
    WindowOverHeatSR = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatSRC1))
    WindowHeatSLOn = ((WindowHeatSL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1) or (WindowHeatSLOnC1))
    WindowHeatFLOn = ((WindowHeatFL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2) or (WindowHeatFLOnC1))
    WindowHeatFROn = ((WindowHeatFR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2) or (WindowHeatFROnC1))
    WindowHeatSROn = ((WindowHeatSR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1) or (WindowHeatSROnC1))
    //WINDOW HEAT (End)

    Find the line sixpackantiice = (fspitot = 0) or (testheat=0) and make it as below
    sixpackantiice = (fspitot = 0) or (testheat=0) or WindowOverHeatSL or WindowOverHeatFL or WindowOverHeatFR or WindowOverHeatSR

    And a short description what this does.
    If it is summer and it is day and there is no rain and the tat is more than 30 Celcius, the on indicators comes on. If you open the switch an overheat will come. The overheat goes off after 3 minutes if you close the switch or if the tat is below 30 celcius (Means taxi with hi speed or in the air)

    Hope you enjoy.

    Hi Achilles,

    I'm using PMSys 110 with native Phidgets and tried out your window heat logic with following result :

    When above 30 degrees Overheat (amber) goes on.
    Amber does not go off (in hardware) after 3 minutes closing the window heat switch.
    Amber goes off when in flight but does not come on again once landed irrespective of window heat switch position.
    In fact the window heat green light stays on all the time irrespective of window heat switch position.

    Can you elaborate on this system ?

    Kind regards
    Tony

    Hi Tony,

    Do you use the default pmsys737.lgc from version 110?
    Did you disable from default pmsys737.lgc the below lines?
    //Make all those lines unable using // like below
    //WindowHeatSLOn = (WindowHeatSL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1
    //WindowHeatSROn = (WindowHeatSR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1
    //WindowHeatFLOn = (WindowHeatFL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2
    //WindowHeatFROn = (WindowHeatFR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2
    //WindowOverHeatSL = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    //WindowOverHeatFL = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    //WindowOverHeatSR = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    //WindowOverHeatFR = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    //sixpackantiice = (fspitot = 0) or (testheat=0)

    Hi Achilles,

    Yes I did use the default file.
    I did not UNABLE

    Code:
    //sixpackantiice = (fspitot = 0) or (testheat=0)
    but added the 4 windowoverhead pos to that line as per your logic.

    Would be interested to hear abt other simmers experiences.

    kind regards

    Hi Tony,

    Check pmsystems to see if software lights aggre with hardware lights.

    If not then there is a problem with phidgets config.
    If yes there is a conflig someware in your lines.

    Let me know

    Achilles

    Overhead window heat logic

    Hello Simmers,

    Actually I have finished the logic of window heat. Here it is.
    Open the default pmsys737.lgc and find those lines below.

    WindowHeatSLOn = (WindowHeatSL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1
    WindowHeatSROn = (WindowHeatSR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1
    WindowHeatFLOn = (WindowHeatFL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2
    WindowHeatFROn = (WindowHeatFR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2

    WindowOverHeatSL = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    WindowOverHeatFL = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    WindowOverHeatSR = (testheat = 0) [.2]
    WindowOverHeatFR = (testheat = 0) [.2]

    Make all those lines unable using // like below
    //WindowOverHeatSL = (testheat = 0) [.2]

    Insert my below logic
    //WINDOW HEAT (Start)
    WindowHeatSLC1 = WindowHeatSL [150]
    WindowHeatFLC1 = WindowHeatFL [120]
    WindowHeatFRC1 = WindowHeatFR [120]
    WindowHeatSRC1 = WindowHeatSR [150]
    WindowHeatSLOnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowHeatFLOnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowHeatFROnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowHeatSROnC1 = ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0))
    WindowOverHeatSL = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatSLC1))
    WindowOverHeatFL = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatFLC1))
    WindowOverHeatFR = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 30) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatFRC1))
    WindowOverHeatSR = ((testheat = 0) [.2]) or ((DayTime = 1) and (fsTAT > 32) and (fsRainType = 0) and (WindowHeatSRC1))
    WindowHeatSLOn = ((WindowHeatSL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1) or (WindowHeatSLOnC1))
    WindowHeatFLOn = ((WindowHeatFL or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2) or (WindowHeatFLOnC1))
    WindowHeatFROn = ((WindowHeatFR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus2) or (WindowHeatFROnC1))
    WindowHeatSROn = ((WindowHeatSR or (Testheat = 2)) and transbus1) or (WindowHeatSROnC1))
    //WINDOW HEAT (End)

    Find the line sixpackantiice = (fspitot = 0) or (testheat=0) and make it as below
    sixpackantiice = (fspitot = 0) or (testheat=0) or WindowOverHeatSL or WindowOverHeatFL or WindowOverHeatFR or WindowOverHeatSR

    And a short description what this does.
    If it is summer and it is day and there is no rain and the tat is more than 30 Celcius, the on indicators comes on. If you open the switch an overheat will come. The overheat goes off after 3 minutes if you close the switch or if the tat is below 30 celcius (Means taxi with hi speed or in the air)

    Hope you enjoy.
