Hi Guys.

I am wondering if any of you have completed your Phidgets.txt files for all the annunciators.

I am curious on how to program the altn and manual Green Annunciators on the Pressure panel.

would someone be able to provide the entire phidgets.txt file, so I may take a look at what variables you have assigned each annunciator. I would like to fill in my .txt file, and can't locate all the variable names.

For instance the ALTN and Manual Green annunciators show using a variable compmode

if compmode is 1 altn is on if compmode is 2 altn is off and Manual is on.

If I program the Phidgets.txt to compmode. Both annunciators light up if it is a one or a two.

some help would be appreciated.

Hi Trev

Normally for a LED card e.g.

24343 LE02 compmode 2
24343 LE03 compmode 1

For a 0/16/16 card e.g.

16766 DO00 compmode 2
16766 DO01 compmode 1

Thanks Thomas, I thought that by adding the 2 or 1 after it would make that the brightness...


Thanks Buddy.

I think it will work but if it doesn't I can show you a trick to get it work as well on the LED card :-)

Thanks. I am getting there. Once I get all the annunciators programmed in the overhead, I need to work on the MIP annunciators (Which I think is covered by your other software) I am getting excited now...

Speaking of which... the pack lights and Zone temp lights have no variables assigned in PMSYS. How do you guys utilize these?

If you talk about the Bleed failure lights in Bleed/Pack panel they are done with my 737-NG program, as well the ZoneTemp :-) Just check the Documentation for this Offsets.

Perfect.. I will do that tonight then.

Download and read the manual. I am going to have to figure which pc to best install that on.

I will email you later.

thanks Thomas, Heading home to play now :)

For the 737-NG program would be may be not bad to use a PC where not pmSystems is installed but the needed Phidgets cards are connected to. Because I'm on to integrate some Phidgets stuff to drive cards special for this indications. It will take some time and will have the hardcoded connections only but works then very fast because there are no Offsets between needed.
