The Altimeter has 3 indicators: a 100-feet pointer, a 1000-feet pointer and a 10,000-feet indicator disc. The Altimeter pointers are driven by a special, modified servomotor which is able to run continuously. You can regulate the air pressure scale by means of a dial on the lower left hand side of the instrument. Included in the kit is an electronics board with a dedicated Microprocessor. This Microprocessor connects to your PC via the included USB cable. The instrument is equipped with lighting which can be regulated by the USB Light Regulation (separately available) or via software. All parts are included in the kit including the needed servo motors and the ready built and tested electronics. Also a USB cable is included. It is constructed from high quality ABS and all parts are plastic injection molded for precise fit. The scale is high resolution print. The housing of the instrument is closed together via a construction of 2 bolts and nuts which allows the opening of the instrument at any time after construction.
Up to 2 pcs. of the same type of instrument can exist in a single panel setup, allowing you to build a full dual equipped instrument panel if needed. The “identity” of the product for the software drivers can be set by means of a switch on the back of the instrument.
