NG272 dash, being modified for Omsi,
I've slowly been working out the wiring for my real VöV dashboard, of course i really wanted a dash from a D92, but it took me long enough to find this one, and besides, it's only a few warning lights and switches different, not to mention the NG 272 is going to be in Omsi 2, so better to have extra lights and switches that i can select from for each bus type than not enough.

I have kept all the original 24 volt bulbs, including the resistors in the switches to allow them to illuminate at 1/4 brightness when the side lights are on,
This meant i had to make up some transistor based isolator boards, to allow the arduino to switch the 24 volt bulbs safely.

The switches will be handled by an ultimarc U-hid board, expensive but very customisable, the gauges will be driven either by a dedicated driver circuit, or an LDR circuit, i will build both and see which performs best.

The air gauges i videoed before, i remove the bourdon tubes, and drive the pointed gears via ultra miniature servo's,

And i am looking out for the correct tachograph, i've just stuffed my old one in this dash for now.
