    Anyone set up Master Caution/Warning Lights Using Fs2phidgets?

    Hi all.

    Anyone know if it is possible to set up a circuit to simulate how Master Caution/Warning lights will flash until you press them but will also restart flashing if another fault occurs in another system?

    I can get them to flash and latch off on the first warning reset but how do you get it to start flashing when another fault occurs.

    What I need is to be able to have a light that can be turned on by many faults , latched off by reset button, but also be able to be unlatched by the occurance of another fault occuring.

    Thanks for helping the Noob

    If you are using FS2Phidget4 then configure your digital input to Push-to-Reset and assign to same circuit as digital output.
    If you are using FS2Phidget5 then set digital input Push-to_Reset property to true. Digital Input is in same circuit as FS Output and Digital Output component.

    Hi Alan

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm using FS2Phidhets 5.0.16

    Please let me explain what I'm trying to do, (I'm sure you already know), so you can let me know how to accomplish it.

    I want to have an annunciator panel with multiple annunciators for things like engine low oil press, low fuel press etc,etc. I also want to have a Master Warning Flasher/reset button.

    When FS fuel press gets low the "FUEL PRESS" annunciator will light, also the Master Warning flasher will flash. When I press the Warning Flasher/Reset button the Master Warning Flasher goes out but the "FUEL PRESS" annunciator will remain lit as long as the fuel pressure is low. This part is easy to do and I understand how to do this.

    What I'm having trouble with is getting the Master Warning flasher/button to relight if a sceond fault is triggered during the first. The new fault annunciator will light but the Master Warning flasher will never illuminate unless the previous fault is extinguished/fixed (reset).

    Is there a way to have the a "press to reset" digital output relit by another FS output without the first one being cycled off?

    Thanks for your help.
