    Default VDO Logic and VDO analogue wind instruments from one transducer

    I would like to connect VDO Logic and analogue wind instruments to the same wind transducer. Apart from different connectors the same transducer is specified for both systems, but I can't find any info about connecting both at the same time. I believe it can be done, this YouTube link shows the same set of instruments connected the way I want.

    So do I simply identify the appropriate wires and parallel them up?

    The signals are the same on both instruments. Cos, sine, pulse, plus 10 volts and ground. Don't parallel the position 10 volt line. It's an output from the instrument to sensor (supply). Have never tried to parallel two instruments and write from my memory

    Found a sketch which should be helpful. Its for the Masthead and the old instrument with the DIN plug. the connection on the Logic version you will find in the manuel. Sorry its in german.
    Somewhere in middle you find the colours also english.
