Reflect FSUIPC Offsets on External Leds / Relays


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm looking for options to read FSUIPC offsets and reflect them as outputs from the PC to control leds or whatever... I am looking at Phidgets now and here is my plan and I need some feedbacks please :D

Using LUA I will read FSUIPC offsets values

Using LUA I will send these values serially to the Phidget board

Using Phidget board, the FSUIPC offset values will be output on the leds / relays...

This looks like a simple plan and I think it is doable with other boards.

Thanks for your inputs,

Fouad

Sounds okay assuming you know how to deal with the Phidgets boards. Do you interface direct to the hardware on a COM or USB port, or do they have a driver you must interface to?

Nope, I have no idea about them. But I guess I found something useful here http://forum.simflight.com/topic/67086-phidget-led64-and-fsuipc/

Will come back later after I study those boards :D

Thanks,

Fouad

Might want to check out fs2phidgets. It is a freeware program with GUI that allows you to interact with offsets, FS and phidget cards. I have interfaced a warning panel with it and a phidgetsled64 board.

Good luck,

I'm on vacation now when I'll be spending most of time on my 767 cockpit. Thanks for the info, I'll look into it...

Cheers,

Fouad
