Timing outputs slow

Aloha Folks,

Looking to see if anyone is able to get at speed outputs, flashing types, ie; caution, warning, ap disconnect, etc. I have managed to get all my inputs and outputs on my glareshield and AP work under the xml format. But programming isn't my best skill, learned as I went. Currently using a lua script setting value as a Lvar and outputting to Arduino's through Mobiflight. Running FSUIPC and code at 100ms and still blinking outputs are slow. Tried also on Air Manager to Arduino with same effect.
Mahalo for any insight or suggestions.

  • Hi,

    That's my experience too. The blinking outputs are hard to catch via XML interface. It would be better, if they would send a continues ON while they are active. The blinking then could be implemented on hardware side.

  • Good info gents, be sure to drop a line with this query to our support department, and I will add it to our items for review in our bug tracker.

  • Thanx all for your feedback, Reinhard's suggestion is a good one also, if easier to implement. Using a 555 or 556 ttl would allow us to set the speed to match the VC.
    Mahalo,

    Gary,

    As you are connecting hardware to XML interface functions, you might be interested in this thread: majesticsoftware.com/forums/discussion/1098

    This combination of XML gauge and macro file allows you easily to map buttons to XML interface functions.

  • Aloha Reinhard,

    Definitely a follower of your work and also my drive to learn xml B). I have downloaded it and will give it a shot. Currently I use FSUIPC macros and pull em out in Mobiflight macro method. Your method looks a lot cleaner for future use and modification. Thanx for the link.

    Mahalo,

    Hello Reinhard

    Thank you for your message

    You could use

    CautionWarning_->outs_.master_caution_light
    CautionWarning_->outs_.master_warning_light

    instead

    With best regards,

    I have tested the solution and it works fine for me.

    Best regrads
