Does anyone have a digital flap indicator for the position of the linear actuator.  I ran across this company here that sells what looks to be an easy setup to add an indicator, however I am unsure of the wiring from the actuator.  If anyone has any other ideas I'd be open to those as well.  We are just looking for a digital indication of the actuator and not something mechanical.

Based on that wiring I am assuming there is no fuse or breaker associated with these items either the actuator or elevator servo? My wiring diagram does not show one. 

I have a Control Vision EXP-2 BUS DC Power Panel / Load Center. I think this DC load center switch panel is a type of electronic fuse panel, so I guess it could be fused in that sense, but I'm not smart enough to read these diagrams (attached) well enough to know for sure. I hope this helps.

I’ve got the Ray Allen position sensor/indicator pair for my flaps. Works great. Sensor is separate from the actuator. Not sure it’s truly necessary.....

Hi Jared, I know you said 'not mechanical' but it does work, ref:  http://www.zenith.aero/group/stolch750/forum/topics/flaperon-indicator.  My version:
