The built-in keypad, IR remote andRS-232 control will function simultaneously.This Section Includes: 1.1 Overview…………………………………………………… ………page 11.2 Connection………………………………………………………….page 11.3 Messages: …………………….…………………………………..page 3Control Commands………………………………..…page 3Status Commands…………………………………...page 81.4 Controlling Multiple Projectors:….…………………………….....page 151.1 Overview Matrix 2500/3500, White, Blue, LX65/100/120, L6, L8, LU77 & LW40 serialcommunication allows the control of projectors by an external controller, such asan AMX or Creston controller. Once connected to the RS-232 port of theprojector, controllers can access projector controls and setups, issuecommands and receive replies.NOTE:The White, Blue, L6 -01,02 & -03 series and L8 -01 series must haveVersion 3.0 main software or higher in them to work with the extendedcommunications as outlined in this document.1.2 Connection To use Matrix 2500/3500, White, Blue, LX65/100/120, L6, L8, LU77 and LW40serial communications you must first connect the projector to a PC or controller.Using an RS232 Null Modem cable, connect the projector to the computer.Refer to Table 1 for Port Characteristics. Refer to Table 2 for projector wiringhook-up.White, Blue, LX65/100/120, L6, L8, MX2500, MX3500, LU77 & LW40 Serial Communication

Eachcommand must be succeeded with a "CR" code, which is the equivalent to a carriagereturn. In hexadecimal the "CR" code is 0D.Note: All communications (commands and replies) are hexadecimal. Ensure you are sending hexadecimal.Commands are case sensitive. Make sure to always send letters in upper case.The following delays are recommended:10ms delay between characters.100ms delay between commands.300, 3000 or 5000ms delay between commands for the following: Check Table 3Control CommandsControl commands are used to set or modify various projector characteristics or to emulate key presses from thebuilt in keypad/IR remote control.Note: Unless Display is set to OFF in the Setting Menu, most commands will cause an OSD to appear.Control commands follow the protocol:Cxx(CR)Where XX is the command code (see Table 3 for a complete list of command codes) and (CR) is 0D.Note: Commands are listed in ASCII, but all communications (commands and replies) are hexadecimal.Ensure you are sending hexadecimal. Commands are case sensitive. Make sure to always sendletters in upper case.Example: As listed, Power On = C 0 0 (CR)You should send: 43h 30h 30h 0DhWhen a control command is sent to the projector, a response is sent back to the controller to notify it about how thecommand was treated.There are two possible responses to a control command:06 (CR) -- Command accepted and executed?

15 05/06/061.4 Controlling Multiple ProjectorsYou can control multiple projectors using the RS232C loop-through output. By daisy chaining (connect the PC RS232 to theRS232 IN of one projector and then connect the RS232 OUT of that projector to the RS232 IN of another projector and so on),one PC can control multiple projectors.1. Setting the Projector’s AddressSet specific address number for each projector.1 Turn projector on.2 Enter the service mode.To enter the service mode, press the MENU and IMAGE button on the projector and hold for 2 seconds3 Change the service Group to 10 using the left/right arrow key on the projector or remote control. Change the No. to 3 bypressing the up/down arrows on the projector or remote control.4 Once set to 10-3, adjust the data to set the projector’s address number. (Adjust the Data by pressing the VOLUMEUP/DOWN button. Setting value must be different for each projector to control each one individually.5 Turn projector off, allow to cool and power back up for the new address to take effect.WARNING:Do not attempt to adjust any other items while in the service menu. Doing so could render the projector inoperableand/or unsafe.2. Sending CommandsAdd “A” + specific address number to the beginning of a usual command, and send it.Example 1 - Controlling One Projector in the Daisy ChainTo change only projector of address number 15 to INPUT2.Send command: A015C06[CR]where A specifies that a unique projector address is being used015 is the 3-digit address number in10 base (same as the address number set in the ServiceMenu.C06 is the command code to select INPUT 2[CR] is carriage return or 0D.Note: Returning data is the same as connecting one projector to one PC.Example 2 - Broadcasting Commands To All ProjectorsWhen you want to turn all projectors on together.Send command: AFFFC00[CR]where A specifies that a unique projector address is being usedFFF is the 3-digit address number used to address all projectors in the daisy chain.C00 is the command code to POWER ON[CR] is carriage return or 0Dh.Note: There is no returning data when you send a broadcast command. (There is no response from the projectors)CAUTIONWhen sending commands, be sure to add the address number. If you send a command without adding the addressnumber, it may cause a malfunction. This is because all of the projectors in the daisy chain will return data (likeconnecting one projector to one PC) and the returned data may be garbled.White, Blue, LX65/100/120, L6, L8, MX2500, MX3500, LU77 & LW40 Serial Communication
