Can someone explain what the green terminal block is intended for on the new HIO-RELAY-8 board? It has one common terminal and 1-8 inputs. I figure maybe you could directly connect 8 LED outs from the SYS board to this? Just a guess...

You can wire it to a SYS card (Outputs) directly. That was the old way. Offers 2 ways of "talking" to the relay card.

Depends on the Avionics software you are using as well.

Thanks Steve! I plan to use 2 of the relays to light up my Engravity 6v Mater Caution and Fire Warning annunciators.

I am using Sim-Avonics 737 - do you recommend hard wiring from the outputs of my FDS SYS or would it be more elegant to use an xml?

If xml, can you send me the right one(s)?
