Hi, Please advise what offset on steady and strobe lights pmdg 737 output. I need the mobilflight relay 1 (LED 1) to switch on when the steady lights are switched on and relay 2 (LED 2) to switch on when the strobe lights are switched on.
I have made the whole light panel this way and all other lights work perfectly at offset according to Offset_Mapping_PMDG737NGX.pdf. Only strobe and steady doesn't work! Offset 6500 byte 1 is probably incorrect. Mobilflight still has a value of 0.
Please advice. Thank you very much .
Excuse my English please .

Hi

iconQuote:


6500 1 BYTE LTS_PositionSw
0: STEADY
1: OFF
2: STROBE & STEADY


You need Compare here..... If 0 Then 1 Else 0 for Steady..... And If 2 Then 1 Else 0 for Strobe & Steady .

**************
Just for interest.

1. Why a Relais ??? LED can be used also directly as a output ?
2. Why a Ouput basicly.... A B737 have no announciator or LED to show Light status !
Good Luck !

Hello.

Thanks, I'll try again. I know the 737 has no light control.
You will probably laugh, but I want to illuminate the plastic model according to the outputs from the FSX, hence the relay and other power supply.
