Offsets for Toe Brakes L & R

Post by GDR »

Hi,

I have configured my controls via the SYSBoard interface.
All work fine.

I have a motorized TQ (revolution sim-products) and now I'm trying to configure the Parking Brake motor.
In order to do this (with SIOC) I need the offsets.

I've already tried to read the offsets 0BC4 and 0BC6 (no luck).
Then I've tried the offsets in the FSUIPC.INI of the SIMA server, being 5416 and 5418 (no luck either).

The SIOC IOCP Console outputs value 0 and doesn't change...

Can someone tell me the offsets to use?

Once completed, the TQ is completely configured. I'll post the script (SSI) and manual on how to set up with SIM-A / FSUIPC on my website when completed. :wink:

Thx for the help.
Geert.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately, this offset I knew :lol:. The thing is that the switch is also motorized. Manual operation does release and set the parking brake as this is controlled in SIOC with offset 5418.

I need the offsets for reading the values for the left and right toe brakes. So when I press either of the toe brakes on the rudder, the parking brake should automatically release. I have set this up in SIOC, but when reading the offsets 0BC4 and 0BC6 (FS), they remain 0.

In my config I've set if either toe brake is pressed beyond, for example 2000, the motor for the PBrake moves to release it. This unfoirtunately does not happen as any value remains zero.

The flight control and rudder is configured via the SYSboard. Are there any SIM-A offsets I can use to read out the values for the left & right toe brakes on the rudder?

Thx.
Geert.

0BC4 and 0BC6 will always be set when the brakes are applied as these are the main brake offsets in FS.

3416 and 3418 are the direct input offsets from the FSUIPC axis assignments.

With brakes assigned via FSUIPC axis, 3416 and 3418 are applied to 0BC3 and 0BC6 'IF' the system logic allows.

If 0BC4/6 are always at 0 then that would suggest your toe brakes are not correctly patched into the FS brakes.
