Flight Instruments


The Climb Rate Indicator block displays measurements for an aircraft climb rate in ft/min.

The needle covers the top semicircle, if the velocity is positive, and the lower semicircle, if the climb rate is negative. The range of the indicator is from –Maximum feet per minute to Maximum feet per minute. Major ticks indicate Maximum/4. Minor ticks indicate Maximum/8 and Maximum/80.

To view the data from a signal, select a signal in the model. The signal appears in the Connection table. Select the option button next to the signal you want to display. Click Apply to connect the signal.

The table has a row for the signal connected to the block. If there are no signals selected in the model, or the block is not connected to any signals, the table is empty.

Default value is 4,000 ft/min.

Specify this number as a finite, real, double, scalar value.

The Minimum tick value is always 0.
