SimVimControl Inputs / Outputs

Input/Output Structure

SimVimControl connections, input/output extensions. General connection diagrams

Cockpit Switches

Toggle switches and Push-buttons

Toggle switches and Push-buttons in aircraft cockpits are commonly used devices to toggle system states or for single command activation.

Rotary Encoders

Step by step data control (+/-)

Incremental rotary encoders (or pairs of [+/-] buttons) are used for changing numeric values step-by-step or for switching between different modes

Multi-position switches

Rotary Switches and button arrays

With SimVimControl you can assign any inputs for a multiposition switch (analog or several digital inputs).

Angular/Linear Sensors

Analog and digital sensors

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

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...
