TCAS II

Recommended Posts

My Fsuipc is registered and I have all programs to flight online.I have PMDg 737-800/900 since fex days. When I rotate switch on radio panel in test position, everything is ok (test ok, voice : TCAS system is ok) but I don't found the "TFC" button on the "EFIS MCP" panel for displaying aircraft on the ND ?? Infact, I have TCAS resolution but I don't see any traffic on my ND.. ??Please help me !!!

The TFC button is right below the barometer setting knob.

Not sure if you meant this by "TCAS Resolution", but after you get the voice saying "TCAS System test ok", make sure you turn the knob in the radio panel to 'TA/RA'Nick B.Continental Airlines Virtual 737NG Pilothttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg--AMD Athlon XP 3200+ @ 2.2 Ghz (Equal to 2.8 ghz)400W Power supply3x 80 mm Case FansSoyo VIA KT600 Dragon PlusnVidia GeForce FX 5200 128 mb2 x 512 PC400100 GB Western DigitalMicrosoft Sidewinder Precision 2

Hello,With the TCAS turned on the Transponder Mode panel (TA/RA) and TFC selected on the EFIS Control panel, everything works with traffic visible on the ND and TAs/RAs generated as expected. I am interested if anyone knows how the real aircraft handles an RA with TCAS on - but TFC not selected on the EFIS panel. In the PMDG sim, an RA seems to generate vertical commands on the PFD etc. the red 'TRAFFIC' word appears in the ND but there is no display of the threat aircraft traffic symbol (unless TFC selected on EFIS panel). Given the critical nature of a RA, one might think that the threat aircraft symbol might be displayed on the ND regardless of the position of the TFC switch on the EFIS panel.Regards,Steven.

No I do not believe that is the case. It's not the ND that is critical here, it's the pitch guidence on the PFD that one must monitor and follow in such cases. Without the TFC button pushed any TCAS aircraft symbols are inhibited from being displayed..Best Wishes,[h4]Randy J. Smith[/h4]http://www.rawbw.com/~bdoolin/shinault/Animation1.gifCaution!
