Topic: Projector Control (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I'm looking to control a projector via an RS232 Port.
I have an UNO and a MAX232 - SP3232E IC.

The projector i'm looking to control is a Hitachi. Page 16 of the Technical section shows the 8 bit codes needed to control the projector. see link below

I am wanting to write code to send commands. This is my first project - be nice :)

I was had started coding this - can anyone tell me if i'm heading in the right direction.
I have coded for the POWER ON command.

Code: [Select]
int digitalInput = 0;   

void setup() {
  // open the serial port at 9600 bps:

void loop() {
  // read the digital input on pin 2:
  digitalInput = digitalRead(2);

//power on command

if (digitalInput = HIGH){

  // delay 10 milliseconds before the next reading:

Do I need to declare the TX and RX for the system or are pins 0 and 1 automatically selected on the UNO?

Any advice would be great
Thank you

Double quotes for strings.

Why the crazy indentation?

Fortunately for you, pins are inputs by default.

are you sure you want to do println() ? that sends newline and carriage return with it everytime you send something. i don't think that's what the projector wants to receive, unless you're sure about this, use print()

and what do you want to send with '0060' ? just the numer 60, or something different? because those ' are quite strange in every println command..


You want to create an array with values in it:
byte cmd[] = {0xBE, 0xEF, 0x03, 0x06, 0x00, 0xBA, 0xD2, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x60, 0x01, 0x00};

Then, send this command using
Code: [Select]
Serial.write(cmd, sizeof(cmd));
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.
