Door Annunciator Panel

Strategies
Kit Bashing
All plates need to be trimmed a little to allow easier fitting.

STRATEGIES
The Problem :
This panel contains the Anti-Ice, Hydraulic and Door Annunciator functions


The challenge is to make three separate units of the correct size that fit between the rails.
The photos below show the panel build as supplied by Hispa Panels.

  • Get 4 DZUS replica bolts (PC Flights and Sismo both supply them).
  • Cut down existing circuit board for connector backplate
  • Make an aluminum mounting plate to mount the annunciators. (Note that there is not a lot of space for the annunciators)
  • The vertical slot holds 4 annunciators. Each annunciator is separated by a 0.022" piece of opaque sandwich arcylic.
  • Add spacers to aluminum plate to mount the connector PCB. (Use 1/4" square spacers for mounting 1/16" sides ??)
