A Few Examples,

Analog input commands  return a fixed number of characters    ( except the RAn command on the ADR101 ) depending on the resolution of the analog input of the particular ADR interface. For example,

RD0 on an ADR101  (8-bit analog) returns 000 to 255

RD0 on an ADR2100 ( 10-bit analog ) returns 0000 to 1023

RD0 on an ADR2000 ( 12-bit analog ) returns 0000 to 4095

Ex 1,                     RD3<cr>            (sent to ADR2000)

                           3456                     (data   indicates input is at ( 3456/4095 ) * 5 = 4.220 VDC )

Ex 2,                     RD2<cr>            (sent to ADR2100)

                           546                     (data returned indicates input is at ( 546/1024 ) * 5 = 2.666 VDC )

Digital port commands allow the user to;

  • Configure individual bits as input or output
  • SET or RESET individual bits
  • Read individual bits
  • Read entire port in BINARY or DECIMAL format
  • Write to port in BINARY or DECIMAL format

 

Ex 3,                     CPA00001111<cr>             (sent to ADR2000)

                             ( configures PA7,PA6,PA5,PA4 as output, PA3,PA2,PA1,PA0 as input )

Ex 4,                     SETPA3<cr>                        (sent to ADR2100)

                           ( sets bit 3 of PORT A )

Ex 5,                     PA<cr>                                   (sent to ADR2000)

                           128                     ( data returned indicates PA7 is high, all other lines are low )

Ex 6,                     MB255<cr>            (sent to ADR2100)

                           ( sets all lines high in PORT B  )

Commands for special  functions ( event counters, interrupts,PWM  etc. ) operate similarly. Browse the Applications section of this web site for examples.
