In order to configure correctly the launch system, it is necessary to perform two different actions:
- Trimming of the launch actuator.
- Create the automation for the launch button.
To set them, it is necessary to connect the catapult to Veronte Ground using the catapult wire and completing the system with a PC connection with Veronte Pipe.
To trim the actuator it is necessary to create the catapult actuator by following the path Devices>Control>Actuators.
- Click on Change size actuators and select the actuator number (1) from the window.
Catapult actuator trimming
2. Once created an actuator, it is possible to trim it. Default values are shown in the previous figure, but user must be sure the servo can move covering all useful range, from bottom to top (0-1).
The automation must be created in the Ground autopilot. The typical Event of the automation is a Button which will appear in the Ground Veronte Panel.
The Action is the change from 0 to 1 of the actuator value. A second value of the actuator should be set in order to restore the initial null value (in this case, after 2 seconds).
