B737-600/700/800 do they have NLG/MLG downlock viewers installed.
If Not Why.

Hi Hawk21M, Buzz here. We don't have the 737NG's, all ours have the portholes on the floor.
But the 757's, 767's, 777's, and A320's have a pair of prox sensors and it seems not to be a problem in the last several years.

Hi Hawk.

The B737 NG have 2 sepparate proximity down sensors on each gear downlock link. System1 & 2

System 1, gets power from the ground service bus.
Indication is displayed above the gear lever on the P2 panel.

System 2, Gets power from the Dc switched Hot Battery bus. And are displayed on the P5 Overhead panel.

Dual sensors, Dual circuits eleminate the need for down lock viewers.

Thanks buzz/lame.
So the carpets have no more cutouts in them aft of the Emergency exits  Smile

But on a serious note, is this dual indication system Proximity switch type or is it the Microswitch type.

No more hole in the carpet.

All the gear sensors are of the proximity switch type on the 737 NG landing gears up / down or ground / air sensing.

All info is routed to the PSEU (Proximity Switch Electronic Unit)

Not one common sensor!
