This USB connected unit has one 4-digit with +
sign, one 5-digit and three 3-digit 7-segment LED displays to emulate
the autopilot displays of a typical airliner. 5 rotary encoder inputs allow the setting of
Course, Airspeed, Heading, Altitude, and Vertical Speed. 2 inputs are
pre-configured for the Autopilot and Autothrottle switches. No user
configuration is required.
This photo shows a typical configuration complete with the
mechanical rotary encoders and the toggle switches that are supplied as
part of this unit. The acrylic faceplate (with milled cutouts and smoky
grey faces for the displays) is also supplied. The dimensions of this
faceplate are 390mm x 65mm x 10mm, although we can customise the size for you if necessary.
