    Overhead gauges

    Hello,
    iam just received my new usb-servo-card from opencockpits. I want build my own overhead gauges for 737NG.

    Has anybody already wrote sioc code for use with PM-SYSTEMS together with servocard?

    Thanks for help

    Thomas

    Giuseppe,

    Have you posted your sioc code on the Opencockpit forum ?

    Did you need any gears or modifications to the servo's ?

    Im thinking of doing my overhead gauges with the opencockpit cards. Although SIOC is still chinese to me.

    Hi Giuseppe,

    thats sounds great. i had nock luck with the servocard, because i basically understand sioc, but in this case it seems to heavy for me.

    Could you post this code here in this forum please? So i (and many other here) maybe can learn more about sioc from it?!

    Best regards

    Thomas

    Hi at all, this is my code for APU EGT and for Duct Press Meter:

    /////////// APU EGT METER /////////////

    var 200, name Servo1, Link USB_SERVOS, Device 11, Output 1, PosL 0, PosC 512, PosR 1010 // Servo Motor
    var 201
    var 202
    var 203
    var 204
    Var 205,name ApuMeter, Link FSUIPC_INOUT, Offset $5604, Length 2 //
    APUEGT
    {
    V201 = 1010
    V202 = &ApuMeter * 0.1
    V203 = v202 / 2
    V204 = V201 - V203
    &Servo1 = V204
    }


    /////////// BLEEDS METER LEFT /////////////

    var 206, name Servo2, Link USB_SERVOS, Device 11, Output 1, PosL 0, PosC 512, PosR 900 // Servo Motor
    var 207
    var 208
    var 209
    var 210
    Var 211,name BleedLeft, Link FSUIPC_INOUT, Offset $567A, Length 2 // BLEED PSI LEFT
    {
    V207 = 290
    V208 = &BleedLeft * 0.1
    V209 = v208 * 6
    V210 = V207 + V209
    &Servo2 = V210
    }

    /////////// BLEEDS METER RIGHT /////////////

    var 212, name Servo3, Link USB_SERVOS, Device 11, Output 1, PosL 0, PosC 512, PosR 930 // Servo Motor
    var 213
    var 214
    var 215
    var 216
    Var 217,name BleedRight, Link FSUIPC_INOUT, Offset $567C, Length 2 // BLEED PSI RIGHT
    {
    V213 = 930
    V214 = &BleedRight * 0.1
    V215 = v214 * 6
    V216 = V213 - V215
    &Servo3 = V216
    }

    This code is good for the instruments from SimKits.
    All works fine, only one thing that i 'm studying at moment is for the duct press meters because when the values arrive the hands go too soon at position while i want that arrive smoothly. While the APU Egt works like i want.

    I hope that with this i can help someone.

    Ciao,

    Hi Giuseppe,

    thanks a lot for the code! It works fine for me and it is a large step for my overhead.

    The EGT moves very smoothly to its position. Looks very nice.

    The pressure pointer ae much to fast...in other words they makes only one stept to the new pointer position. Thats what you are allready investigate...
    I look forward to the results...and i hope you will find any solution to fis this.

    Regards

    Thomas
