Anybody to comment on the switching logic of the Antiicing System. I learned that the Ice Sensor is switching Pitot Heat to ~200C inflight with the Antiicing Switch in 'Auto'? Switch to 'ON' would keep it at that value?
On the airbus, the probe heat computers manage the level of heating. Inflight, the pitots are heated to the high value. The position of the push button has no effect.
