737ng mcp display holes????

Recommended Posts

I am makeing my own cad file for the mcp...Well, by 7-segs displays are 13,8mm by 18mm (pretty standard), but i found that the "holes" in the real mcp, for a 5 cyphres display, are 40mm.... that makes for displays 8mm wide!Since the step is 2.54mm it can't be that small, unless going with smd or the likes....What did you do to solve this problem?

Even better! 7.6 mm wide that's about the real size. How much do they cost in Italy?

Your "pusher"?Anyway i just thought that every 7seg available to the public is kind of "slewed"I mean the cypher is not strainght vertical, but inclined.In the real thing, they use "straight" ones....Where to find such kind of display?

Unfortunately Distrelec has a complex site, so direct linking does not work (and i didn't notice until some time after i posted).So the links above do only show the tech details and not the pdf links nor the price.If you open http://int.distrelec.com you can see the price of their products in euro.

You can find KnightBright in any good electronics store.As for the inclination, you are right. But I haven't seen any consumer electronics displays not being inclined.I assume boeing (and the rest) are using custom ordered displays.The latest NGs come with blue led displays too!You can find blue led displays, but they are more expensive and again inclined.However, the SC36 series is not too much and it's barely noticable.George DorkofikisAthens, Greecehttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/betaimg.jpg
