Hi guys,

just a curious question and might be an easy one, but is it possible to dim the PFD/ND,etc...?
Might be easy but i can't think of a way to do so.
Greetings

Can be done using our FC1 Game controller connected to pots that are assigned in the SYSBoard Controller under Display Dimming..

Only thing missing is the actual panel where the pots are located. JetMax B777 does not have that panel.

*The Upper and Lower are not able to have pots installed due to the MFD display being below the panel.

Ok, the FC1 would not be the problem i think.
But the actual panel to fit into the Jetmax would be tricky or not possible i suppose?
Or would there a possibility to produce that panel for the jetmax and fit it below the lower eicas?

Good day Marco,

I use two individual pots on a leo bodnar interface card. All mounted to the dimmer panel on my side console. Not sure about Boeing accuracy here, but it does the Job, especially for nightflying.

Once I settle in on my new config, I will probably rewire my backlighting, OH light and Map lights to the correct pots. But thats a project for the future...

No worries Marco, a couple years ago I was in the same misery...

One afternoon in my workshop will take care of this, I am sure.

After all its just a pot wired to a standard IO card. Hook it up to your PC and you will be good to go!
