Brake accumulator pressure gauge

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

Performed my first flight yesterday and noticed that the brake accumulator pressure gauge does not read when I turn on the number 4 hydraulic aux pump.  I loaded default panel state and this had no effect.  I'm using P3Dv4.1 on Windows 10.

Hi.

I can confirm this behavior after applying the Hotfix for P3Dv4.2 (under Windows 10)

Brake Accu shows 0 psi and can't be charged with neither System #4 Hydraulic Pump. Brakes work normaly.

Brake Source Light next to it is going OFF as it should with Systems pressurized.

 

Everything else works like a charm.

Have a nice Sunday,

Benni

Has anyone submitted a ticket to the support to report the problem?

It would be the most effective way for the support team to investigate on that issue.

It appears there are enough people experiencing this, so I'll submit a ticket.

Gents,

It will get fixed upon release of the 748.

We changed the animation process and it needs updated dlls which were not part of the "4.2 compatiblity" package.

For now, it is a D item deferral so you can safely operate with it that way until mid june.  :cool:

Now I know, you are really a maintenance test pilot. Had an "accumulator" failure in SE Asia back in the day; it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. ROFL

Just be aware that you won't get brake accumulator indication unless the Ground Service Bus is powered. The Ground Service Bus is powered either by AC #1, or if Ext Power or APU power is available (if the Ground Service Bus switch has been pushed at cabin door Left 2). It won't work on Standby Power alone.

Some aircraft are fitted with Towing Busses. This can also power the gauge.

The BRAKE SOURCE light is a little less fussy.

Cheers
