Projector Serial Port Codes

I'm trying to find the serial port codes to add to an application we developed to turn on/off our overhead projectors from the computer. The computer has a serial connection to our projectors and it works with all of them but out new Sanyo PLC-XU101 and I can't seem to find any documentation on this. Maybe they are the same for older models but I wanted to see if anyone already has figured this out.

Thanks

The WXU10 has a different serial port and completely different command protocols from the other Sanyo ranges! Assuming you have the serial cable (9D to 6P rather then 9D to 8P on a standard Sanyo, you will need to use completely different codes!

The manual available from Sanyo for this model has a table of codes, but instead of the more common ASCII 'C' Commands (e.g. "C00"+(CR)) it uses a string of 13 HEX characters, each string starting with a BE EF header, some other control parameters and finally an XOR checksum of all the previous bytes....no LF or CR at the end, Just pure hex values.

Not easy to remember, either....you WILL need the table from the manual!

Hi there

They might be the same if the Projectors are from the same series.

First figure out if the RS232 codes are in ASCII or HEX. You will most probably be using the HEX codes.

Best would be to contact the dealer you bought this unit from - they should by all means be able to help you out.

The problem you will have by keeping the serial port is; all the new products will no longer have serial ports.
You should replace the serial port with wireless or dvi .

Options for Adding Serial Ports The serial port is prevalent on PC's ...


Options for Adding Serial Ports
The serial port is prevalent on PC's as well as scores of industrial, scientific and consumer devices, making it a convenient starting point for communications. Since RS-232 itself is only suited to short connections (50 ft. max.) many applications require that it be adapted to fit requirements. RS-422, typically used for extending RS-232 communications, provides full duplex communications between two devices. It can also provide one way communications from one master to several slaves. RS-485 communications standard allows cable lengths up to 4000 feet. It also provides very high noise immunity. Multidrop connections up to 32 different nodes can be made over a single twisted pair cable along with a signal ground connection.
This article summarizes the choices a system designer has when adding a serial (RS-232, RS-422, or RS-485) communications device. There are many different ways to add additional serial ports to your Desktop PC, Palm, or Laptop PC. USB, PCMCIA, PCI and ISA are some of the methods that will be discussed.
The Universal Serial Bus (USB) provides a high data rate and Hot Swap connection for PCs, providing an easy connection to a wide variety of multimedia and network USB devices. Generally considered to be for home or office use, USB is finding its way into Industrial applications.
PCMCIA Serial Ports are yet another way to add serial ports to a PC that has PCMCIA Slots available. Most Laptops today offer only one (if any at all) DB9 type serial ports. A PCMCIA Serial Card is a good way to add a serial port (or ports) to any laptop that is low on available serial ports (RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485).
PCI Cards are becoming more popular as a way to add serial ports to desktop PC's. PCI type slots are becoming the "norm" in standard PC's today, and PCI Serial Cards are an excellent way to add serial ports. The standard Desktop PC may only come with one serial port standard (if any serial ports at all). PCI Serial Cards use Software Drivers to address the ports to the PC.
ISA Cards are yet another way to add serial ports to the older desktop PC's. ISA type slots are becoming scarce in standard PC's today, but are still an excellent way to add serial ports. The ISA Cards are typically addressed using dip switches and shunts or jumpers to set IRQ's for each port. No Software Drivers are required with ISA style serial cards.
Palm OS PDA's may be connected to RS-422 or RS-485 data circuits using Palm adapters. These adapters offer total portability for collecting data and field service chores. The Palm device and the adapter will usually slip into a shirt pocket. Some models use the PDA's connecting cable, some include a cable and some are cradles that allow the PDA to nest in place and connect directly to the Palm base socket. PalmTerm Freeware allows you to transmit and receive data from the Palm serial port.

Connecting projector to desktop using usb


I have to make an assumption here that the overhead does not have a USB port. You will have to get an adapter that will take you from USB to whatever connector that you need but also could turn into getting a scan converter. Let me know what the whole problem is and I know I can help you with this. This is what I do for a living.

How do I change the input from the DVI-I input to the 15


I found the online manual and followed the instructions to set to "auto" input. Everything works fine.
It had been a discouraging ordeal trying to locate a new DVI cable (which came with the projector)
and as it turns out the 15 pin cable works fine. Thank you.

Connecting a Sharp Multimedia Projector XR-40/30 Series Notevision 30X to a HP Pavilion Zd7000. I cannot get an imageMultimedia projector


use a vga to vga cable. if your HP has a 13 pin serial conector. (looks like a trapezoid), use that.
If not you may need a dvi to vga cable.
if not, the projector may have two ports on the back - use computer in - not monitor in.

Lastly, try the video settings on the HP to see if its picking up the projector as a second monitor as a primary
Makes a difference, NGK

Try it with 75Hz for the second monitor and use the VGA input.

USB/serial is only for configuration.
