  • Page 6: Rs-232 Protocol Syntax

    This manual uses the symbols “<CR>” and “<LF>” to represent a carriage return and line feed, respectively. Requests Commands are sent to the projector as “requests,” which consist of an asterisk (*) prefix, a command keyword, any needed parameter, and a carriage return <CR> as a terminator: * keyword = parameter <CR>...

  • Page 7: Notifications

    Notifications In general, every request sent to the projector generates one or more notification messages, which are sent to the controller. (The exception is unrecognized requests, which are ignored.) Actions initiated by the projector can also generate notifications. The projector is always in verbose mode, and sends notifications whenever a setting changes, whether as the result of a request from a controller, or as the result of an action such as a button press or menu change.

    The following table illustrates the types of notifications that can result if a request uses incorrect syntax. This incorrect syntax... No asterisk at start of request Unrecognized keyword Invalid parameter Specifies an action with an unnecessary parameter Requests a valid setting that is unavailable (for example, due to lack of an input source, or to the setting not being supported for the...

    Example — changing input source The following simplified example shows how the projector typically responds to a request to change the active input source. Note that the three latter notifications are delayed. Request: Notifications: Example — changing the picture mode A request to change the picture mode can take a moment to complete, and so produces a delayed notification.

    If the parameter listing for a particular keyword is “None,” that keyword requires no parameter. ✎ Except as noted in the keyword listing, each keyword is valid only when the projector is in its on state, STAT=1 (and not warm-up, cool-down, or standby state). RS-232 keyword listing...

    Note: The active input source must be VGA1, VGA2, analog M1, or analog RGBHV. Sets or queries the projector’s timing relative to the active input source. Note: The active input source must be VGA1, VGA2, analog M1, or analog RGBHV.

    INTSP 0 to 1, ? RS-232 protocol reference Description Sets or queries the synchronization of the projector to the active input source. Note: The active input source must be VGA1, VGA2, analog M1, or analog RGBHV. Sets or queries the vertical positioning of the projected image: usable range is the maximum and minimum allowed by the active input source.

    The notification takes this form: *VERS="proj_model:proj_fw, mod_model:mod_fw" where: • proj_model = projector model number. • proj_fw = projector firmware version. • mod_model = connectivity module model number. • mod_fw = connectivity module firmware version. For example: *VERS="xp8010:1.04, L1837:1.03" RS-232 protocol reference...

    The projector sends a notification when it enters cool-down state (STAT=3), and another when it enters standby state (STAT=0). Note: This keyword requires the projector to be in its on state (STAT=1). Note: Do not send any requests other than STAT in the time between the cool-down and standby state notifications.

  • Page 16: Changing Input Sources

    If analog and digital sources are simultaneously wired to the M1 port, the projector treats them as separate inputs. However, if the M1 source is selected, the analog M1 input is activated.
