|Type||Card-Addressed(defaults to COMM)|
This command returns the firmware “Build” version. BU X shows various configuration options and build-modules that are present in the firmware.

As no address was given, Tiger Comm replies. It replies with its build name, all axis names present in the system (axes will always be A-Z, filterwheels 0-9). For each axis the type is given (see table in section “Identifying Controller Configuration”) and the card address in both character and hex formats. Finally, an integer is given to indicate the presence of special properties or capabilities of the axis, such as CRISP auto-focus or RING BUFFER module for TTL positioning; these can be interpreted using the information below. This command is useful to quickly identify all the axes names and types present in the system.

With an address 1 given, the specified card #1 replies. This reply just contains axis name and types present on the card. However it goes into more detail, printing all the firmware modules present on the card.
The values listed for axis properties are decimal integer representations of a binary code which represents any special properties of the axis. Usually these could also be identified by doing a BU X query of each card and interpreting the response, but they are listed separately on the axis property line for convenience.
