    FDS-SYS2X High Capacity (128Input Card) - Pots and rotary encorders

    Hi

    I have look at the above card to these components, see bellow:
    37x on/off switch 37 digital pins
    9x on/off/on switch 18 digital pins
    6x mom/off/mom switch 12 digital pins
    1x on/off/mom switch 2 digital pins
    2x Rotary encorders, 24-steps 4 digital pins
    12x Rotary switch 50 digital pins
    8x Rotary potentiometer

    I know that the cards do not work with "Rotary potentiometer" and "Rotary encorders"!

    My questions are:
    1.)
    Are there some card who support thise components?

    2.)
    A regular joystick card does like Leobodnar. I must however be able to connect the card and control it through FSUIPC since pmdg 737ngx are handle controls from hardware through offset!

    The question is: Am I able to link a normal joystick buttom throught FSUIPC and offsett?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The goal is with my 8 pots to control lights in the cockpit and with the rotary encorder control the ALT landing and FLT ALT!

    Please answer this or give a tips on where to search?!

    Best Fredrik

    the Leo Bodnar card supports pots and encoders and so does the Open Cockpit cards and both can be used with FSUIPC
    You need 1 Leo Bodnar BU8036 (takes 8 pots) or 1 sub card and 1 master card from OC

    With the Bodnar card and FSUIPC, you can use the 737NGX SDK Control Codes in FSUIPC to control all the 737NGX Switches.

    Re: FDS-SYS2X High Capacity (128Input Card) - Pots and rotary encorders

    Hi

    I have make my decisions to use: Universal 12-Bit Joystick Controller BU0836X

    For all of my 120 inputs both analog potetiometers and the two rotary encorders

    1a,)
    I have read that you can share the GND input to all of the button inputs "(GND can be shared between inputs if necessary.)" It is valid to the whole board or must the digital and analog gnd be separate?


    2,)
    I am needing to make about 120 inputs digital and analog inputs in fsuipc, is thera a more easier way than to link a button in fsuipc than the general way?

    Best Fredrik
