Premier Aspen PFD

#1 Post by hucbr600 »

Hi,

A quick question...

For the various instruments that require turning via a knob, aka, Nav 1, ADF, Alt etc. there is the option to assign a rotary encoder to that instrument during the panel build etc.

I have purchased the Premier Aspen panel (bezel, PFD and MFD (HSI)), where the bezel has 2 knobs and 3 buttons, but I cannot see in the setup screen the option to add any hardware to the bezel, either for the knobs (via rotary encoders), or the buttons.

So the question is .... Can hardware be assigned to the Aspen bezel knobs and buttons via AirManager, or indeed via a 3rd party option such as Mobilflight?

Kind regards.

Hugh

Yes, just add the 'Aspen EFD1000 premium interface' hardware function to your panel. Not sure why you would need Mobiflight?

Thanks Ralph for the quick reply,

I'll check again to see if I can find this option - is it in the bottom part of the instrument screen, or a separate instal. I would prefer NOT to use Mobiflight.

Ralph,

Just looked again and can't see the option. Is it in the 'Generic Aspen EFD 100 Bezel' ?

Apologies,

I have no idea how to " 'Aspen EFD1000 premium interface' hardware function to your panel"

or access the webpage/air manager page: in the screenshot above.

I can access the Shop via the Wiki page that gives me the option to buy the Panel - which I have already done, but cant see anywhere to click through to the Hardware Interface Page.

Can I ask for some Newbie guidance on this please?

All from within Air Manager. Select your panel in the Home tab, click the +Hardware button in the ribbon menu and look for the EFD1000.
