    737 Overhead Using Phidgets

    I am considering using the Phidgets interface card(s) for wiring up the overhead.
    Has anyone else used these and if so could give me a guide to the number/type of cards they needed and any pros and cons that they experienced that may help.

    An alternative would be an Open Cockpits set-up that I have some experience with.

    Thanks
    Andy

    You will need 6 x Phidgetinterfacekit 0/16/16 and 2 x PhidgetLED64.
    That is sufficient for both overheads (based on pmSystems that I use.)

    Nowadays pmSystems with Phidget cards work swell.

    There are several wiring diagrams and connection schemes for this setup available.

    Success !

    I have tried various interface products, Phidgets is certainly among my favorites. Works great and I had no issues at all.

    Thanks for the response. Phidgets seem to be very straightforward and easy to use.
