Re: Help on sullivan electronic smoke system


Just applying power may not turn it on. I would think you would need a turn on signal from a channel on your transmitter and receiver.

Re: Help on sullivan electronic smoke system


The Sullivan pump system has a safety feature that if you turn the transmitter on before you turn the receiver on and the transmitter channel usually connect to a switch happens to be on when you turn on the receiver on your plane, it detects this and it will not turn on.

You need to reset the switch on the transmitter to the off position then cycle the receiver off and then on again. You also need to wait 5 seconds before you can activate the Sullivan smoke pump with the transmitter switch any time you turn on the reicever or else it will not go on either.

On some radios such as the Futaba 7CAP or the 9CAP you will also need to activate the spare channel and link it to a switch IE: channel 5 or channel 7 or else it will not work properly. You will find this under the parameter menu the same place where PPM or PCM parameters are, just scroll further down.

This will let you regulate the flow by the channel end points adjustment when you activate the channel switch. You can also cross link your spare channel as a slave to channel 3 master and then your throttle stick will control the flow of oil to the muffler, using one of the P-MIX programs, to the max rate set by the end points of the spare channel.
You can never have enough power, as you can always throttle back.
