Two possible problems...

1. Hardware issue.
Please confirm your servo workes ok and is set correct in Mobiflight.
Use the TEST Button in the Dsiplay tab of a Config or maby use the servo with a other function ( For example Gear)

2. Software issue.
If the Servo itself workes ok while testing but NOT in the PMDG Brake Gauge then simply your used settings in this Output config are wrong.

To Solve this.... ( I not do it so i give you just basic guides)

First figure out how the Offset value workes.... Find out the Range value can have... Lowest Point ( for example 0 ) Highest Point ( for example 400 ) And how is the value Full Numbers or a Decimal.... If Decimal how many decimal numbers (for example 1,234567 )

Then define those data in the Config.... Use the lowest and highest value in the Servo Settings for MIn and Max .
The Offset is a FLT32 so its pretty shure decimal. Those Values are a problem, too..... ( If i remeber right a Servo have problems with decimal raw data)
So you need to try out.... Maby you need to Multiply the value ( and round maby) so result is a full number.

Finaly Brake Pressure should be linear.... so a interpolation is not needed i think .

****
Please check this stuff...... Maby try out the multiply and rounding idea...... If no success please request here again.... Then i will make a testrun on my system and check the situation for you.
Good Luck !

Please change max moving range (Max Wert) to 4000 not 4.
It works fantastic
