Serial Control output

Recommended Posts

Hello happy Watchout users, I am having an issue controling my Sanyo PLC XP200L via serial control out of Watchout. We are trying to control the shutters on the projectors from WO and we are not getting any results. We are coming out of com1 and our data rate is 19200. WO tells us to use a $ followed by 2 hexadecimal digits. Has anyone tackled this issue? It would be greatly appreciated if you could shed some light on the issue.

Thanks,

Brent

Not sure where you think WATCHOUT is telling you that,

that information should come from the Sanyo protocol definition.

 

The WATCHOUT documentation will tell you if you wish to send a hexadecimal value,

then yes, you use a $ followed by 2 hexadecimal digits.

 

But if you want to send ASCII, just type the characters.

 

Last time I wrote commands for a Sanyo projector, the protocol was ASCII based.

Serial settings were 19200,8,1,N

 

But the projectors I wrote commands for did not have shutters,

so maybe that all has changed.

 

We did use video mute, which was written as ...

 

C0D$0D - to engage video mute and

C0E$0D - to release video mute.

 

$0D is the hex code for an ASCII carriage return,

the Sanyo protocol definition showed that as a single character named CR .
