Your message re the Saitek HAL file did not include an e-
I’m not sure about the file, but post a message in the forum about it. I know the forum seems dead, but there are some people and mods who still log onto the forum at times and will probably be able to help you.

Your message re Arduino and amBX registration seems to have been cut short as it’s not complete.
Please can you contact me again, putting your e-
I am interested in using an Arduino for similar purposes, although I’ve not yet got
around to playing with it yet. It’s a while since I’ve done anything with the amBX,
and even longer with the Arduino, so I’m a bit rusty. The I’ll need to look into
it in more detail, but I think the output from the LED driver is PWM -
The other option would be to take it from the sidelight PCB, either at the output
(pin 1) of IC1 or one of the test points (TE11 or TE15) -
Taking the input from the wallwasher socket would be the simplest, if it’s feasible to do it this way, as it doesn’t involve needing to have a sidelight or messing about soldering to the sidelight PCB. My only concern would be to ensure that adequate protection is given to prevent any overloading, short circuit etc. at the output from the wallwasher as this could damage the wallwasher components. I’m not sure how well they are protected against that sort of thing, although they are protected against ESD.
If the connection was to the sidelight PCB and any components got damaged, at least (in theory) they would be easier to replace.

You should find the information you need on this site.
I still have to finish the wallwasher light fault section off, but most of this is the same as the sidelight faults (voltage readings at certain points may be different).
Read through the Sidelight\Sidelight faults section, especially further down the page
See the Sidelight\Testing LEDs section for general information on testing the LEDs
The wallwasher lights circuit is shown under the Wallwasher light tab.
Thanks for the information regarding DA1 and DA2 connection naming. I’ll check that out when I get a bit of time (may be a while!) and update the information where necessary
