    Several questions

    Hello.

    I have two questions, good in fact I have many questions that to ask on PMSystem, but I will begin by these two:

    1™) Why when I connect the parking brakes, after a certain time (15 to 20 seconds) these are freed? It only happens when I execute last PMSystem version.

    2™) How is connected the external power supply?

    A greeting and thanks for your attention.

    Well, I can answer you #1.

    Brake pressure is needed to keep the parking brake set. So unless you have built up the Brake ACCU with the APU or another function, I don't believe the parking brake will hold.

    I could be wrong though. It could also be an issue with the switch or joystick assignment you have set that is causing the unit to release.

    This line of code in pmsys737.lgc:

    extpwravail = extpwrinstructor or (fsPrkBrake and ((fsstartflag1 = 0) and (fsstartflag2 = 0)) and (beacon = 0))

    Says that External Power is available if the instructor station [extpwrinstructor] (Another PM software), enables it.

    OR:

    Parking brake is on [fsPrkBrake] AND
    Neither engines are starting (or have been startet) [(fsstartflag1 = 0) and (fsstartflag2 = 0)] AND
    Anti Collision light is off [(beacon=0)]
