Hi!

Where can I find details about the eng. start mechanism aka start switches?
I mean the four ones, who are in the OVHD panel.

Are they spring loaded with a solenoid, or do they need to be pressed in manually after start sequence?

Are pics available?

Thanks in advance and

BR Hans

Hi Hans,


This picture courtesy of Avsim and PMDG:



Pull the knob, solenoid holds the knob out till a predetermined N2 value. White light comes on, then pops back up and light goes out.


Hope this helps?[/url]

Hi Steve,

thanks, I know how they are working and looking. My question was meant regarding your products:

- Are your switches looking the same, working the same way?

- What do I need to count in for I/O Card ports / no of wires etc...

That's what I'm missing on info – cannot find pics or info on your site!

My problem at the moment:
I see lot of nice pictures of great products on your HP, but no wiring diagrams, background infos etc.!

For example: when I plan to purchase a panel, how should I know how much I/O wires I should plan for my setup Sad ... or should I ask for each single panel ... Surprised ?

I hope I made my dilemma clear!

Best regards from Vienna
Hans

Hans,
We will always support our customers on pieces they purchase.
We are not really excited about explaining in detail about some of our products.
We would rather talk to you directly.
Steve will happily do so.. We are always here.
Peter
