Now the work on my VEMD is finished and its out for beta testing (and I am waiting for the release of AirManager RaspberryPi-Edition to use it as planned)

Here some impressions of different screens:

Turbine Startup (max TOT markers appear only when starter is active)
Image

Normal operational mode
Image

All Engine Operational (AEO) 5 minutes LIMIT active
Image

One Engine Inoperative (OEI) 30 second LIMIT active
Image

Engine in manual mode within the LIMIT
Image

System Status Page
Image

Generator AMPS view
Image

Battery AMPS view
Image

and after shutdown ... the Flight Report Page
Image

Perhaps you noticed the special behavior of the Limit Bars when Limits are active - everything like described in the original Training- and Flight-Manuals for the EC135 (as far as the Rotorsim EC135 can handle it).

@Amok : There is a way to swap between the functions of the VEMD like gen amp, gen volt, bat vol...? Or they are different gauges?

Of course you can toggle through them all by just pressing (i think it was) the scroll button (or the select button) on the right of the VEMD. As in the real one.

We both are doing our best to have it as original as possible, we even try to implement more functionality and features, than the free rotorsim EC supports! 8-)

Excellent :D Now I'm checking what datarefs I can use to build this home cockpit, I have found almost all datarefs, but for engines control (off - idle - flight) what dataref do you use?

The Raspberry Pi version will have hardware support, that will be ideal to switch between screens, turn screens on or off and maybe control backlighting of the panels and/or buttons.

In the rotorsim EC the most CPDS and FCDM functions are controlled by custom commands from the EC135 plugin. Unfortunately they are gone after switching to another plane so you should use something like "x-assign". Anyways even with a PI you will need to send datarefs (and/or commands) to get the desired function though the sim, except of panel brightness.
Regarding the Engine Control Panel I can give you more help after being home on Monday. But they defenetly do exist ;)
Merry christmas and happy holydays to all of you...
