FSIO-Input-72 board provides 72 inputs available for the simulator input devices (buttons, switches, rotary switches, encoders). IDC-10 socket connector and a corresponding ribbon cable is used for the connection.
A single IDC-10 connector allows to connect:
– eight single input devices (pins 1-8)
– GND signal (pin 9)
Pin number 10 is not used.
There are 9 IDC-10 connectors in total on the board, thus 9 x 8 inputs = 72 total inputs available.
FSIO-In and FSIO-Out connectors allows to connect the board to FSIO Input/Output chain.
I will use gear lever design from Andreas site.
3mm aluminium plate, screws, nuts and washers, PVC tube, swiches, 3D printed wheel.
