Interfacing outputs with SimStack

Interfacing outputs with SimStack

The Main Instrument Panel (MIP) outputs have now been successfully interfaced with SimStack.The boards are adaptable, allowing for all outputs (korry incandescent bulbs and the panel integral backlighting) on the simulator to be driven by a single Stack. The Flight Control Unit (FCU) potentiometers have also been wired to the analog input and allow for … Continue reading

MCDU CRT Simulation

MCDU CRT Simulation

There was discrepancy with the black level on the MCDUs in comparison to the displays of the PFD, ND and ECAM. The MCDU (converted to bypass AIRINC429 and 115 VAC requirements) uses a clear thick glass to give the effects of the CRT. To match the black levels of all the aircraft displays, 20% dark … Continue reading

Simulator Solution Simstack: Jeehell FMGS Support

Simulator Solution‘s SimStack can now interface with Jeehell FMGS using FMGS FSUIPC offset. Genuine aircraft components from Boeing and Airbus have different voltage and current requirements to drive their korry switches. SimStacks has a dizzying amount of options: SimStack Foundation Board Features Arduino Pro Mini compatible processor and Ethernet hardware 16 digital inputs 6 analogue … Continue reading

OEM B737 CDU Conversion (Simstacks)

Flaps2Approach has written about the genuine B737 CDU conversion process using Simstack. This is one way the Airbus MCDU could also potentially be converted; it does pose another challenge for Simulator Solutions as the screen size for an Airbus MCDU is slightly larger than a Boeing CDU. Our friend James in the UK is also … Continue reading
