    APU-Gauge, and Battery etc. Screen on Overhead

    HI!

    i am looking for a software, to display firstly the APU Gauge, and then the Battery-Display. It's a Boeing 737 with X-PLane and Mac-Linux Setup, but Windows is possible. Do you have any idea?

    cheers!

    For the APU gauge, I was thinking about using this plugin to drive a servo.

    He also has a plugin to drive a PhidgetLED64. I was thinking of using it to drive a relay that would control different 7 segment displays to show the different voltages and amps. Right now I have it hard wired to the overhead's bus so it displays the appropriate information based on weather its on ground, APU, or generators. I used Ian's detailed schematics to wire the overhead's electrical system.

    Your build progress looks great and its good to see another X-Plane builder out there and one brave enough to use Mac and Linux! Keep it up!

    Cheers!
