# Are there differences in pjlink commands among different printers?

## Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am normally able to pull up a show that used commands through pjlink and take the commands from there and apply them to the New show. However, I am now using projectors I can't find previous shows for to copy the commands from. Are there differences in the commands for different projectors? or is it universal for all? I know the projectors use pjlink class 1, and I believe that's what the commands I use for the other projectors is. Here's the info.

I'm currently using Epson Powerlite Pro Z8255NL. Example of power commands I'm using are %1POWR 1\$0D for on, and the same with 0\$0D for off. Shutter commands are %1AVMT 30\$0D and 31\$0D. These commands work flawlessly with the Epsons.

The New projectors I'll be using are Sanyo PLC-XM150L. Will those same commands work? If not, how do I modify them to work and where do I find the info to do so? Any information would be super helpful. Thanks so much.

Hi Chris!

From my knowledge, as well as what I have read from the PJlink pages you should be safe. The Sanyo projectors you have are listed on the JBMIA site:

Assuming the Sanyo projector have a shutter and all the same features it SHOULD work. But I cannot guarantee it.

Best regards,
