Default AFS 4500 Install

Hi All
I just thought I would give you a shot of my progress with the install of my AFS 4500. All of the engine and fuel tank sensors are finished; I remove the left tank to run the wires for the OAT. What’s left to do is mount the Ahars, connect the radios to the efis, and then button everything up after all the calibration is done

You can splice it. One transmitter can drive a couple receive devices just fine and some even more. Technically however RS232 is a point to point spec. but it will work most times within reason. Don't forget to set your 396 to NMEA and VHF out to get it to send frequencies to the SL40.

Default Powered up today

Well I added power to the EFIS today and all the smoke stayed in the wires.
I can't quite figure out how to set the parameters yet. I need to configure com 1 to receive the GPS signal

Unhappy Fuel System Trouble

Hi Everyone
I have all the sensors in my efis install functioning correctly except for the capacitance fuel level system. The previous system was manufacture by Electronic International and it performed flawlessly for 5 years. I thought a new system of the same nature would be a plug and play. That has not my experience.
I need some help to correct this.
Thanks in advance

I can't help you with your issue, but you will get a quicker response if you post to the AFS Support forum.
