RS485 / RS232 SOFTWARE INTERFACE COMMANDS

8.1
General
The standard FMA 4000 comes with an RS485 interface. For the optional RS232
interface, the start character (!) and two hexadecimal characters for the address
must be omitted. The protocol described below allows for communications with
the unit using either a custom software program or a "dumb terminal." All values
are sent as printable ASCII characters. For RS485 interface, the start character is
always (!). The command string is terminated with a carriage return (line feeds are
automatically stripped out by the FMA 4000). See section 2.2.3 for information
regarding communication parameters and cable connections.
