    Unhappy Simkits APU Gauge and PM

    Hi Guys,

    I recently installed a Simkits APU ETG gauge but it doesn't follow the graphic is the PM systems program. In fact it simply goes from 0 straight to 10 as soon as the physical switch is operated.

    I'm using the FDS SYS 1 card for interfacing my overhead but whatever settings I use the gauge does the same. When I switch off the APU the Simkits gauge doesn't move until the PM System gauge reaches zero, then it returns immediately to zero as well.

    Any thought would be appreciated,

    regards
    Joe.

    Re: Simkits APU Gauge and PM

    Hi Kermit,

    It's a USB Gauge. It calibrates fine but doesn't follow the PM System graphic gauge. It's almost as if it's reacting to a switch on/off command.
    I wondered if it was a problem with the XML code I've used.

    Cheers
