Re: "DEMO" files order and structure

Very low down the priority list if anything. We aren't trying to make the EFIS a file manager. Sorting by most recent might be easily doable (for files with dates/times) but it can still take a lot of extra time to read the drive. Old files that you don't need to play back should be moved to a folde...

Re: EIS Aux Ports to Horizon 10.1

The scale factor 100 and offset 0 are the defaults. They aren't going to be meaningful. You have to enter the scale factor and offset for the sensor that's attached to the input. For fuel probes, you have to calibrate them. If you have an EIS with LCD, the scale factors, offsets, and forward/reverse...

Re: Trim display from TruTrak

We don't know how the pitch trim signal works in the TruTrak. If the wire has a linear voltage in the range 0-30V and has a consistent neutral voltage then you would be able to convert it to a number and display it on a data box or bar graph.

Re: Horizon EFIS set up

When you connect the ARINC module to a port, the "expander" serial pins 8 and 9 on the power/serial connector of the ARINC module become a pass-thru port. In the older display software versions, these pins replaced the original port (6 in your case) but it was still called the same port (P...

Re: Green text upper left hand side - what is it telling me?

"TRAFFIC" means it has traffic input from any source. Some inputs tell us if the service is unavailable so it may change to yellow and say the traffic data is getting old or unavailable. "ADS-B #" means there is an ADS-B input and is usually shown instead of just "TRAFFIC&qu...

Re: Navworx 600 + GNS480 + HXR

The ADS600 "EXP" model only has one display output. The "B" model has multiple outputs for "Display" and "TIS". If I recall correctly, the "B" model can be configured to send "TIS-A" data to the Garmin and "Traffic Alert" data to ...

Re: Navworx 600 + GNS480 + HXR

The 480 is probably connected with the TIS-A Traffic output. This is an older, simpler Garmin traffic-only format that works fine at 9600 baud. It's limited to something like 8 targets and can't show call signs. It doesn't transfer weather. The EFIS can also receive this format when configured as GT...

Re: Lightspeed EI - Timing Advance Output with L2e

You need to set the EIS1 Aux6 Scale Factor to 25 for the integer mode (no decimal place). The EFIS doesn't automatically assign the input to any bar graphs or data boxes for you. You have to decide where and how you want to display the advance (dial, bar graph, data box) and then configure one of th...

Re: Aero Safety Systems AH502 (Annunciator) Connections with HXr

We don't provide power to the warning light output. It is an Open/Ground output just like the G3X and it can handle over 32V. Normally you would connect a light with power on one end and the other end of the light would go to the EFIS warning light pin so when the EFIS grounds it, the circuit is com...

Edit: I meant Connector B pin 1 for the HXr warning light.
