Normal Switches long time closed

Gate A11

Recommended Posts


I Have the following Question:

I am starting with Leo Bodnar BBI 32 Interfaces, later with the Arduino Mega and Mobiflight. When i connect a Normal Switch ( ON / OFF ) There will be a constant Signal at The USB Port / Interface. When i now assign them maybe as a Landing Light with the ON and Release event the Switch will be closed a few hours. Can this cause Problems with the USB Port Windows or MSFS? Is this like i would Press a Key on the Keyboard for an hour? And how is It when using multiple of Switches and Interfaces can this overload something?


Thanks for Help!

I think such buttons can cause issues when assigned in MSFS as you would get continual button press events, but this shouldn't be a problem when assigned in FSUIPC as it handles repeat button presses differently - it will only repeat the press when asked and will repeat at the rate configured until a button release is seen.
