    A320 dual Pedal Mechanik

    Hi Cockpit Builder's,
    the next step for my A320 Homecockpit are the pedals.
    Okay, the rudder pedals are mechanical linked between Capt and FO side. The movement is transmitted to the FMGC.
    But how are the brakes working? Are they also linked: Left Brake Cap = Left Brake FO ...

    Have anyone build a pedestal set themself and can give some useful hints?

    I'm using Jeehell FMGS.

    best regards
    Frank

    No, the Brakes are not linked. You could assign the Brakes for Capt and FO orthogonal in Jeehell FMGS.

    Yes I have seen in the Jeehell Configure Control the different setup / calibration fields for this, also for RUDDER. But if the Rudders are like in reality mechanical linked, only one rudder input is needed for Jeehell - right?

    The rudder is actuated by 3 independent hydraulic jacks. To my knowledge there is no mechanical linked in a real aircraft like the FDS brakes system.
    Yes only one input is sufficient.
    All braking functions are controlled by the Brake and Steering Control Unit (BSCU) in a real aircraft.
