    Offset for fsStartFlag1 what does it?

    Hi,

    anyone out there who could explain what these offsets do?:

    0892 2 fsStarter1
    0894 2 fsStartFlag1

    Reason is, that I´m planning to build starter switches which will have a spring loaded position for gnd. In order to make them automatically return to OFF position upon the engine´s ignition, Im looking for an offset which could be used to drive the solenoid of this starter switch.
    Have found both a.m. offsets in sysvar, but have no clue what exactly they do.

    Could anyone shed some light on to it or, even better, has anyone realized such starter switches yet?

    Thanks for any input

    Peter

    Hi,

    Those are flags, you can't really use them regarding the engine start switch.

    In the new beta version (173) of PmSystems the code is there for the switches. Download it from the PM site.
    It says:
    if fs1n2 > 50
    manengstart1 = 1
    endif
    Just change the N2 values (for both ) to your liking.

    regards
