Major improvements of this new design : -Extra 3 digits top left, in stead of 2 in the old design. -Compatible connection for 2 MicroDrivers at the back of the panel, by using these you are freed from the difficult wiring between driver board and 7-segment displays. Of course if you want to wire the board yourself to the hardware of your choice… no problem Connecting to hardware… Besides that you can connect the panel to the hardware of your choice, this elec panel can makes use of our new MicroDrivers so that no difficult wiring is needed. You can simply plug 2 Micro Drivers at the back of the panel, connect them to a Pokeys card (USB or Ethernet) and you are ready to configure in… For use with ProSim737 X-Plane with Pokeys plugin MicroDrivers and Arduino see here or manual connection How to with Pokeys cards… Connecting the elec panel with the MicroDrivers to a PoKeys card, either USB or Ethernet, requires 4 wires to be connected for each MicroDriver. The first MicroDriver is connected on the ports 9-10-11 and GND, the second MicroDriver board is connected on ports 23-24-25 and GND. A color coded connection cable is available to make it easy for you. Connecting MICRO DRIVER 1 : purple wire goes to port 9 blue wire goes to port 10 green wire goes to port 11 grey wire goes to GND Connecting MICRO DRIVER 2 : purple wire goes to port 23 blue wire goes to port 24 green wire goes to port 25 grey wire goes to GND Further more provide 5 Volt to both driver boards and you are ready to configure the boards in ProSim, Arduino or X-Plane via plugin.
This new Electrical Panel for 737 overhead uses our MicroDrivers. No more difficult wiring, these driver board simply plug in to the back of the panel giving you absolutely no wiring between drivers and 7-segment displays. Digits are the correct size and are green colored high quality, high brightness displays. 7-segment digits are of the common cathode type and the panel can also be used with other multiplexing hardware. The only thing you need to do is connect 4 wires on each board and 2 wires for the power supply, everybody can do this. Check the documents about the MicroDriver at the left side of the page. For configuration in ProSim please look below. After you made the connection, the only thing is configure it in ProSim or the software of your choice Interfacing possible with ProSim737 or display driver board compatible software X-Plane to Arduino via plugin see here
