SimVimControl Inputs / Outputs

General Structure


SimVimCockpit wiring architecture, input/output extensions.

Cockpit Controls

Inputs connection

Switches, Push-buttons, Rotary switches and Encoders - how to connect and configure all inputut controls in SimVimCockpit

Cockpit Outputs

Outputs connection

General information about output devices connection - 7-segment displays, Indicators and annunciators, gauges etc.

Analog Input Controls

Using angular or linear sensors (analog or digital) for axes control and directly change data values. Resistive, optical, magnetic sensors. Calibration.

Digital Output (On/Off)

Use Direct or Extended Serial digital output for annunciators (LEDs) or other On/Off type outputs for your cockpit (such as relays, actuators for flags, control signal for ICs, etc.)

7-Segment Displays

Use 7-segment indicators with SimVimControl, connecting each 7-segment digit to its own shift register.

PWM Output Devices

Moving-Coil Gauges, PWM control

Using moving-coil ammeters you can build most of the gauges with limited rotation angle. Also, you can control any other PWM devices

Stepper-driven Gauges

Stepper motors

Stepper motors are a good option for creating quiet and fast needle gauges with either limited or full-circle rotaiton range.

Servo-driven Gauges

Limited-movement servo

Servos are one of the options for creating needle gauges with SimVimControl.

LCD Displays

Output on LCD displays

SimVimControl supports direct output on LCD (no need to use additional LCD libraries) connected with using of shift register

Modes and Conditions

Conditional I/O Control

Additional configuration control - mode switches, mode LEDs, multi-mode input/output, Conditional input/output...
