This command has a slightly different usage on Tiger then in MS2000 and RM2000.
|Format||VB [X=binary_code] [Y=TTL IN1 state (read only)] [Z=read_decimal_places]|
|Remembered||Using SS Z|
Adds serial communication verbose modes for special functions. The
binary_code is the sum of the bit values for the desired functions from the list below. The Y argument allows the TTL
IN1 input state to be directly queried via serial command. The number of decimal places for the
WHERE command is set by
|Bit 0||1||Send character ‘N’ upon completion of a commanded move.|
|Bit 1||2||Send ‘p’ for joystick quick-press and release, ‘P’ for long-press.|
|Bit 2||4||Send ‘H’ for TTL IN1 low-to-high transition; ‘L’ for high-to-low.|
|Bit 3||8||Changes the reply termination for
|Bit 4||16||Move and Move Rel will print the new Target Position.|
|Bit 5||32||Axes positions reported upon completion of a commanded move.|
Example VB X=7 turns on the first three of the above functions.
|Format||[addr#]VB [X=binary_code] [Z=read_decimal_places] [F=###]|
|Remembered||Using [addr#]SS Z|
The Z argument sets the number of decimal places for the
WHERE command. This is card-addressed so that different cards can be set differently. It is saved to non-volatile memory using the SS Z command.
The F argument sets the reply syntax. Setting to 0 (default) is the MS-2000 syntax, and setting to 1 gives the Tiger syntax (see above section for details). The syntax state does not persist when power is turned off.
Reply Note that this command does NOT return :A or other acknowledgement.
The X argument implemented in firmware version 3.17 and above . When set with the Binary bit shown in the table below, performs the corresponding action
|Bit 4||16||Move and Move Rel will print the new Target Position.Vector command will print the current position|
1vb x=16 <LF> ve x=1 y=-1 :A -0 -0 <LF> ve x=2 y=-2 :A 66562 -66567 <LF> ve x=0 y=0 :A 156651 -156663 <LF>
In the above example , XY stage is on Card Addr#1. Because VB X=16 , BIT4 was set. This makes the Vector command reply with the axis's current position.
