This article provides instructions for replacing the Elevator Potentiometer on an RTD.
The I/O or Input/Output System on the RTD consists of Digital Inputs, Digital Outputs, Analog Inputs, and Analog Outputs. The I/O System is managed by the Griffon Host software through the CAN Bus System.
The RTD connects to facility power via a 15A 120 VAC plug (NEMA 5-15P). Power from the facility connects directly to Power Strip 1 on the Electronics Shelf under the RTD glareshield cover.
The Computer contains the Host Software, which processes all the flight computations and manages the I/O, and is responsible for generating the environmental sounds, such as engine sounds, and cockpit alerts.
The Top Deck Interface Board provides a means of DC power and CAN signal distribution to the 16-wire cables, shared by all CAN devices.
The Controller Area Network known as CAN is a data transmission protocol. The CAN devices communicate through the CAN Bus interface.
Verify the volume on the TV is turned up and not muted. Verify the Windows volume on the computer is turned up and not muted.
RTD trainers with 3 Visual displays, there are certain situations which can arise that can cause the Prepar3D windows to be misaligned compared to the trainer displays (usually due to hardware changes or instability).
This procedure is used to add a custom database to the Visual System, Prepar3d.
