    AIRCON pages missing?

    Maestro,

    Looked at your site today and both the Aircon DIY and Aircon 2 pages are missing. This might just work for my project. I need to control a Vintage Air Gen III air conditioning unit. It is entirely servo controlled, an self-contained digital controller is available from Dakota Digital, but I'd rather control it from the touch screen pc I'm installing.

    Been About 2 Weeks After Ordering ?

    Hello Mastero, it's been about 2 weeks after ordering. Is my order ready to ship yet. 1 aircon -2F and a usb to serial cable. Not trying to rush you but it would be nice when to expect my order. Car shows coming up and would like to have it working. Thanks, Vince

    Now that the documentation is up, I think the Aircon will work great with my Vintage Air Gen III A/c system.

    I do have one question though... It shows both a serial connection and a display connection. I understand the serial is to control the hardware through the VB interface. What is the display connection for? Somewhere you said it is to display temp and fan settings, isn't the temp and such shown in the VB interface on the controlling PC? Does this mean I have to have 2 screens in my car for the Aircon to work correctly, both my PC touchscreen and a second screen to display the Aircon status? Or is the display only used if you are using a remote control and no PC?

    Just trying to understand so there aren't any unrealistic expectations.

    Thanks,
    -Matt

    The second screen is just a numeric 7segment display like the one in the pic.
