    Airbus Annunciators

    Finally got the annunciators designed and tested for the A320 overhead. This was a major problem of getting something to work that was simple and cheap. As we know the real ones are prohibitive unless you find an unattended Airbus somewhere that is completely unattended !
    The major cost for these, are the leds which are 3mm. hi-intensity ones. The rest is mainly labour and engraving.
    Here is the results:

    That is slick Brian

    Is the aluminum square stock size and how did you do the dual lighting? Oh, and what button are you using.

    I'll be rebuilding my overhead, and will be making my own annunciators.

    Matt, the buttons I am not sure where I got those, as I bought them some years ago, but any cheap buttons will do as long as you can fit the 2 leds onto some perf board ( 2.54mm. holes spacing) and the push the 19 mm. suare tube over the lot. This is mainly to stop light spread from the indicators. The 2 leds will have better visibility if you use 2mm thick Opal under the engraved annunciator top, and as it is glued onto the switch, you do not get any bleed over.
    The squre al. tube is stock 19 mm. OD X 1.25 thick, which is pretty close to the real dimensions.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers....................Brian W.
