    FCU Display

    I'm redoing my EFIS/FCU. Currently I just display the numbers, no dots or
    dashes or indicators of what mode, etc.

    Is there anyone, that has the FCU displays, displaying exactly as indicated

    in the PM FCU software graphics? If so, would you share what
    hardware/interface you are using?

    Thanks,

    FCU Display

    I'm using SIOC (Opencockpits) and have my FCU working with all the indicator
    lights and dashed displays.
    The boards are easy to build and they were a very nice group of people to
    deal with when I ordered.

    Only thing I had some problems with was when changing from the MCDU modes
    back to commanded values the pm FCU wasnt updating the corresponding variables
    in time so values didnt match.

    I did send Enrico an email a while ago, so this may have been fixed. I'm
    moving the sim into its own room so dont have all the computers linked at the
    moment to check, hopefully within a couple of weeks it will be fully flying
    again.

    Hi Peter, and Thanks

    Glen, or anyone else using SIOC (Opencockpits), could you post or e-mail me

    a list of boards to order? I hate reinventing the wheel.... Beside the
    boards, I would be interested in what 7 Segs you are using and where to get

    them.

    SIOC is a virgin experience for me, I appreciate any help I can get.

    This project never ends........

    Re: FCU Display

    Hi Matt,

    I also use opencockpits. The sioc is very powerfull
    I had a big part of the airbus pedestal linked up and
    working. Now i'm currently writing a lot of code to
    rework everything including the FCU and EFIS
    What do you order.
    Order : 1 mastercard = 45 outputs
    72 inputs
    if more then one mastercard is needed or you prefer using USB
    order : 1 expansion board (allows up to 4 mastercards to be
    connected)
    order : x display boards ( 1 board = 16 7segment displays)
    (up to 4 display boards for each mastercard)
    order : 5 digit 3 digit and I think also 6 digit PCBs
    to hold the 7segment display
    order : 7segment display, nice yellow and nice size

    for easy connectivity you can also order seperate input
    and output connection cards, those connect to the mastercard
    via a delivered flatcable and give access to the inputs and
    outputs via screw terminals.

    Those people for opencockpits are very nice and not out for
    money... they just serve the cockpit building community...

    If help needed with SIOC ... just ask ...
