MCP747 is a full scale replica of Boeing 747 MODE CONTROL PANEL.
The module is complete and ready to use and interface with Microsoft
Flight Simulator and Project Magenta.
The MCP747 is connected to the PC through USB cable (provided).
The MCP747 can be directly powered by the USB (USB 2.0 with 500mA
current capability or an HUB with its own power is recommended).
Trough the USB it is possible to supply the MCP and two EFIS selectors;
a DC plug allows to connect an optional power supply to supply further
MCP747 interfaces with Microsoft Flight Simulator through Project Magenta MCP software,
CPflight driver for default FS aircraft and LVLD767, FlightSimLabs driver (payware) for PMDG series.
Is also compatible with SimAvionics, Flight Deck Software and Xplane.
The MCP747 hardware establish an interface with all compatible software; logics,
operating modes and aircraft behavior are managed by software.
MCP747 is equipped with high quality level components.
One million cycle rated encoder, autothrottle ARM switch, 2 FD switches and
bank selector knob with FlyEngravity custom solutions for frontplate and pushbuttons
give a high fidelity performances and a never seen realism. MCP747 have white digit display
and warm white backlight.
MCP747 comes provided with wide expansion capability through the DIN 5 pole auxiliary socket.
This allows you to connect and interface CPflight plug&play expansion modules
(like EFIS selector and other future modules).
You may add modules at anytime; the MCP forms the center for data exchange
between modules and flight simulator.
Each module is provided with 5 pole cable and is ready to be used without need
any software configuration. EICAS selector is already included in the MCP747
(only software wit EICAS functions are supported).
No need to configure or power the EICAS in any way.
The MCP747 panel is equipped with: 13 backlighted pushbuttons; 1 round
pushbutton to select IAS/MACH Auto Throttle ARM switch; two Flight Director switches;
Vertical Speed thumb wheel and flat disengage lever.
All selected values are shown through white 7 segments white LED displays.
The flash memory technology of 16 bit microcontroller gives you a simple way to upgrade
the built-in operating program (Firmware).
This feature is useful for update your MCP with improvement and future expansion.
The EICAS panel is equipped with: 8 pushbuttons for ENG,
STAT, ELEC, FUEL, ECS, HYD, DRS, and GEAR; 2 round pushbutton to select CANC and RCL
The front panel MCP747 + EICAS selector (dimensions 500 mm width and 73 mm height) is backlighted.
The backlight does not require any external addition, everything is built-in the MCP and
the control is directly given by Flight Simulator instrument light status or connecting
an external switch to the related input ( refer to the MCP747 manual; External backlight control section ).
