The Ruscool LCD1000 unit has been designed with an Arduino Nano (Old Bootloader) and is for use with the Air Manager system from Sim Innovations. Sim Innovations have made a special gauge called Ruscool Avionics LCD1000, and more information can be found about this here: https://siminnovations.com/wiki/index.php?title=Aspen_EFD1000#Ruscool_Aspen_EFD1000
The LCD1000 has an LCD screen fitted, and needs to be powered with 12 Volts DC. The PCB has a standard 2.1mm DC socket, and the central pin is positive. (+). Any regulated 12 Volt DC power supply (2 to 3 Amps) will suffice. We do not supply any power pack.
The Arduino Nanos on these two LCD1000 units have two small USB connectors and will require the following cables to connect it to the PC: USB 2.0 Type Mini B (5pin) Male to Type A Male. Because of the construction of the dual mounting plate, however, one of these HDMI cables will need to have a right-angled connector. The LCD1000 may be connected to your computer with either VGA or (preferably) HDMI graphics. Depending on the specifications of the computer's graphics card output, the HDMI version can normally be set to 1920 x 1080 resolution in Portrait mode.
The kind folk at Sim Innovations have made a short video which will assist in the installation and setting up of the Ruscool LCD1000 hardware when used in conjunction with their Ruscool Avionics LCD1000 gauge : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qkrLnoPOlw.
The LCD1000 will be shipped as a fully-assembled unit, complete with mounting plate.
