Air Manager is able to control Flight Illusion gauges and engine clusters. This page describes how to add and configure a Flight Illusion interface board or engine cluster, and how to create your own script to control Flight Illusion hardware.
Go to the Device tab and click Device, select Flight Illusion interface board and the corresponding COM port, then click Add. The interface board will become visible in the device list, and when it is connect (see State), it will start scanning for gauges. Once the scanning is completed, press the triangle to the left of the interface board symbol to see the list of gauges that were found.
Go to the Device tab and click Device, select Flight Illusion engine cluster, the corresponding COM port and the engine cluster type, then click Add. The State tells you if the engine cluster is either connected or disconnected.
Assigning an instrument
Select an instrument connected to the interface board or the engine cluster, and you will see that you can first select a category (All by default), and then the instrument that is compatible with the selected gauge or engine cluster. The category lets you filter certain categories. This is particularly useful when you have selected a single needle gauge, as there are many different instruments compatible with these gauges. Air Manager will already do its best to filter and to only show the instruments that are compatible with the selected gauge or engine cluster.
