New Gauge Concept (Flap Gauge Example)

Post by pcos »

This new product coming out of our JetMax line is usable in all of our FDS product as well.
We wanted to develop an "affordable" Gauge line to facilitate our enthusiast customers. This approach will be expanded shortly to cover the Overhead Gauges, Brake Pressure, APU, Fuel Temp, Packs, Outflow Valve.
Focus is on system info and affordibility.


Quick overview of the JetMax LED Flap Gauge that will be standard on all JetMax 737 Devices. Works with all the popular Avionics Software Packages including: Sim-Avionics, iFLY737 CBE, PMDG NGX, Aerosystems737, PM and more!

Thats crazy thinking outside the box!

Imagine the money Boeing would save If they filled their 2" indicators with this concept...
although I'm still a steam gauge dinosaur myself, great idea :)

Uses FSUIPC offsets. Based on the flight model you are using.

Easy to do.

Overhead Gauges

Post by pcos »

Folks,
The plan is to have all the Gauges done over the next month or so.
I can see a viable line of items here and as many of you know, we need to have basic info from the gauges in order to "Fly"...
The APU guage.. Needs to show Off.. or On..
The Packs needs to show Off.. or On..
The Temp Gauges are low on the importance list but can be "normal" or "off"...
My bet right now is that if Boeing was starting with a "clean" design you would not be seeing "needles" anywhere...
Peter

Hi

The flap gauge is installed and the LED's to indicate the Flap Position are working. What I am missing are the necessary offsets for Sim Avionics. I didn't find them in the Sim Avionis.ini for the interface ITManagement SW. Or did I miss something? Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

Regards
Felix
