ECAM Control Panel Pinouts


Pinouts for button and LED light control connect to a low or high speed ARINC 429 transmitter board (only two wires to the ARINC board required). Alternatively pinouts for the push buttons can be connected to a joystick board. Upper and Lower Display Unit brightness knobs should be connnected to a a potentiometer.
