Operational Specifications

These specifications are based on a standard OS. But are only to be used as a guideline. Within the limits of the OS can be factory programmed to a non-standard for an NRE charge. These non-standards can be as small as one code difference being sent, and can be for one OS.

1 Framing Error - If a framing or overrun error occurs on data coming from the host, the OS sends back to the host < (0x3e), the character it received, > (0x3c).

2 OS Reset - A Reset ^ (0x5e) is sent from the OS to the host following a power up or a request for Reset from the host. See Config switch 9. When the host request a Reset it sends a DC4 (0x14, PS2 ctrl-t) to the OS, the OS then does a RAM check and in 300mSec it sends the host ^. All data is cleared (lost) and the cursor is positioned in the first position of the first row.

3 Set LED's - To set and clear the status LED’s the host sends the OS a DC3 (0x13, PS2 ctrl-s), followed by to number of LED to be set from 1-8. The number is sent in ASCII – 1=0x31, 2=0x32, 3=0x33, 4=0x34, 5=0x35, 6=0x36, 7=0x37, and 8=0x38. To reset all LED’s to the “OFF” condition a 0 (0x30) is sent. The LED’s that the host wants to r6emain in the “ON” condition must be resent to the OS after sending a 0 (0x30). See Section 8 for LED positions.

4 Clear Display - To Clear the display and set the cursor to the first position in the first row the host sends a DC2 (0x12, PS2 ctrl-r).

5 Back Space - To Back Space the host sends a BS (0x08) in either row.

6 Carriage Return - To do a Carriage Return the host sends a CR (0x0d). See Config switch 2.

7 Line Feed - A LF in either row will do a line feed. When done in row 2 the data in row 1 will be lost, and the data in row 2 will be sent to row 1. The position will remain the same.

8 Communication set-up - 2,400 baud, Xon-Xoff, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, DCE, and no parity.

9 Set 1st command – At any location in row 1 or 2 if a DC1 (0x11, PS2 ctrl- q) is sent the cursor will be positioned in the 1st row at the lower nibble (0-f) of the following second byte sent, e.g. first byte sent is DC1, the second byte hex x6, the cursor will be in the 7th position from the left.

10 Set 2nd command – At any location in row 1 or 2 if a SUB (0x1a, PS2 ctrl-z) is sent the cursor will be positioned in the 2nd row at the lower nibble (0-f) of the following second byte sent, e.g. first byte sent is SUB, the second byte hex xf, the cursor will be in the 16th position from the left.

11 Blink – This can be done using the Set 1st and Set 2nd commands. The host can blink any number of positions in either row by alternately sending a Space and a character to the same locations at timed intervals.

12 Communications I/O Connector – For RS-232, DB-9, pin 1=+5VDC, pin 2=tx1, pin 3=rx1, pin 4=shield, pin 5=ground. If the OS is being powered by 12 VAC separate terminals are used, consult factory. For RS-422 consult factory.

LED Status Indicator Positions Available

The twenty position Matrix Touch (TM) keyboard has eight (8) LED status positions in fixed locations that can be controlled by the communications link, either RS-232 or RS-422. The locations are shown in the following two figures, one being for a vertically mounted keyboard and the second being for a horizontally mounted keyboard. The positions are numbered from one (1) through eight (8). See section 7.3 to control LED's.

Number one position LED is upper right

and eight position LED is lower left.

Number one position LED is upper left

and eight position LED is lower right.

2040 and 3540 Operator Station Commands, custom commands on request.

1. Clear Display - To Clear the display and set the cursor to the first position in the first row the host sends a DC2 (0x12, PS2 ctrl-r).

2. Back Space - To Back Space the host sends a BS (0x08), the command works like a left arrow. In order to do a back space like a PC where the character is deleted, the host must send a BS, Space and a BS.

3. Line Feed - A LF (0x0a) in either row will do a line feed. When done in row 4 the data in row 1 will be lost, and the data in row 2 will be sent to row 1, the data in row 3 will be sent to row 2, and the data in row 4 will be sent to row 3. The position of the cursor will remain the same.

4. Communication set-up - 2,400 baud, Xon-Xoff, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, DCE, and no parity.

5. Set Cursort command - The cursor can be set to any location on the display when a DC1 (0x11, PS2 ctrl-q) is sent followed by the valid hex position in one of the four rows. The following are the hex positions in the four rows: 1st row 20-47, 2nd row 50-77; 3rd row 80-a7, 4th row b0-d7. e.g. first byte sent is DC1, the second byte hex 0x26, the cursor will be in the 7th position from the left of the first row.

6. Bell - The 8340 OS can output an audible beep when an ASCII Bell command (0x07, PS2 ctrl-G) is received.
