    configure landalt flalt text led

    I am not very practical.
    Iím thankful for that, if someone succeeds to help me footstep after footstep
    to configure the two encoders and text led that manage the landalt and fltalt
    on overhead panel with phidget software v.401

    Hi Paolo,

    As a first step we need to identify offsets for LandAlt and FltAlt.
    Were you able to do that ?

    I can help you identify offsets. Let me know.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    Paolo,

    Where did you obtain offsets from ?
    You should obtain offsets from pmSystems screen by hovering mouse pointer over switch.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    Paolo,

    The offsets for flight and landing pressure altitudes are:

    56AC and 56AA respectively.

    Both have a length of 2.

    I fired up pmSystems and hovered mouse pointer over switches.
    Offset, lengths and values are displayed.

    (Enrico has more than good looks). LOL
    (and his team won the Soccer World Cup).

    The offsets in fs2phidgets ini file are incorrect.
    My apologies.
    I will offer you 3 solutions.

    (1) Instructions on how to correct your INI file.
    (2) email you a corrected ini file
    (3) Both (1) and (2)

    Regards,
    Alan.

    Paolo,

    Either send me an email to alan@coconutair.com so that I can send you latest version, or if you prefer to wait a day or two until latest version goes public.

    Whichever way you choose, I will help you on this forum.

    I have tested latest version with your specific challenge and I know it works.
    Set both Flight and Landing Pressure Altitude using Phidget Encoder
    Also displayed result on Phidget TextLED and Phidget TextLCD.

    New version will allow you to slave a TextLED or TextLCD to an Encoder.
    This allows better TextLED and TextLCD response to values being updated in FS by Phidget Encoders.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    Paolo,

    Let us start with flight pressure altitude first:

    Connect up a Phidget Encoder and a Phidget TexLED.
    Fire up pmSsystems and MS-FS.
    You should see default values for flt alt and landing alt displayed in pmSystem.

    Fire up fs2Phidgets I sent you.
    The Phidget Library should be displayed as green.
    Flight Simulator/FSUIPC should also be displayed as green.

    Press Configure radio button.
    List of attached Phidgets should be displayed in the Phidgets list box.
    Click on Encoder to highlight.
    Select Encoder tab in Componenets list and click on Index 0 to select.
    Use drop down list in F.Func File column to select file I sent you.
    In Flight Func. Assignment column select FLT_ALT.
    Push enable button (goes green).

    Turn encoder and you should see flight altiitude increase or decrease.
    You may notice that when you turn encoder clockwise the altitude decreases.
    Turing anti-clockwise increases altitude.
    If you want the opposite check the invert box.

    Let me know how that goes.

    Regards,
    Alan

    Ok Alan,

    fltalt is recognized now.
    fltalt pmsystems display has one decimal more respect phidget display.

    Values on fltalt phidget display are incremental and correct up to reach
    ( 16383###)
    later this number, they move on the right of one decimal ,and the values go down
    ( #16382##)

    regards
    Paolo
