  1. The GFC gets the altitude from the G5 - if the G5 shows the correct altitude it should not be the problem ...
  2. Ah - so this is not a technical but a STC issue ...
  3. I don‘t see any reason why this should not work. The S-Tec will be connected via the GAD29B to the Garmin world. The SL-30 should be connected to the G3X via RS232. For what do you need the direct connection between the SL-30 and the S-TEC ?? You might have a RS232 converter, but that should not be needed anymore and therefore the RS232 should be free.
  4. Have you already received the parts? I am also currently in the installation process, but Garmin didn‘t deliver the parts as announced ... :-(
  5. The fan is on the back of the tray? Power is supplied via a connector. So nothing complicated. The difficulty comed from accessing the back of tray ...
  6. Working when removed Asking $800
  7. The 120 value describes the wave impedance and not resistance. This is important for reflections on the cable.
  8. The article shows nicely that CAN is the better choice for our application. Using IP you need additional protocol layers for a lot of tasks. This means more complexity, more testing, more computing power and memory. Add this to the higher hardware cost (remember we are talking about embedded software here and not gaming PCs) makes it a clear choice. What the article is not addressing is EMI immunity. My understanding is that CAN is superior in that area as well. Speed is only relevant if your system requires this speed otherwise it is wasted money. Robustness and data integrity is something that at least myself would call a must. Concerning connecting other devices : having a compatible physical and protocol layer doesn‘t mean that you can use it in any practical way within the network out of the box. Don‘t get me wrong - I wouldn‘t use CAN for my home network, but for low cost networked avionics it is a ideal choice. Simply the right tool for the right application...
  9. What practical benefit would IP bring over CAN? In the automotive industrie IP is only used for high bandwidth applications and they analyzed it pretty extensively.
  10. The annoying thing is that they are referring to just one manufacturer. There are at least two more making Aerospace/Milspec CAN bus wires where one is used on Airbuses (means fulfilling Air Transport requirements). There even is a European Standard for Aerospace CAN Bus wires which could have been referenced.
  11. Can you probably post a picture from below the bracket where we can see how the servos connect to the tubes?
  12. I can share mine. The last one I did was for a dual G5 and JPI
  13. The software I used from their partner is free. Once you are done with the design you can order that panel directly from within the software. I sent them the right aircraft aluminum bare material to use and received a very nice panel power coated and engraved for a very reasonable price. For printing the software allows for printing on multiple sheets that you can glue together.
  14. Pretty close - some call it a magnetometer
  15. 6 Cylinder - I am not sure if it is also possible to reprogram for 4
  16. Unit with selected sensors: - Manifold Pressure - Oil Pressure - Oil Temperature - OAT - Fuel Level Adapter Box Perfect opportunity to upgrade from your 700 or 830 to primary ! Price : $1700
  17. It actually was midchord on the left wing
  18. I have done my panel with their European partner. The free program works very well for that purpose. I can share my panel file whoch contains all the cutouts assuming that they are using the same software/format. Gesendet von iPad mit Tapatalk
  19. Thanks a lot for the pictures. Doesn‘t look to complicated. The most complicated should be the roll servo. I have looked at my king servo installation and that is a nightmare of space and cables. It would be great if you could manage to make a picture of that as well. Interesting that they put the GAD 29 in the back.
  20. You mean one of those ? Fantrainer It was built from Rhein Flugzeugbau. They build 32 of them as a military trainer.
  21. unfortunetly nothing midchord on both wings ....
  22. Hi, does anybody know where the flux valve is located in a 231 with weather radar installation? I looked at the place mentioned in the other thread (right wing just outboard of the wheel) and all the other plates in the middle row with no success. Thx
