Quintech SRM/SRB/SMC Series Protocol v3.15...

8/06/2002 Rev G This document specifies a common command protocol that can be used to control a Quintech SRM, SRB, or SMC control module from a computer. Protocol 3.15 is a superset of the previous 2.15 and 3.00 protocols. It provides a common protocol command set for both SRB and SRM matrix systems. A SRM control module running protocol 3.15 will be backward compatible with control software built for protocol 2.15. A SRB control module running protocol 3.15 will be backward compatible with control software built for protocol 3.00. The common command set is given in the first section and alternates for backward compatibility in the second section. Definitions FFI FFO SMC SRB Full fan-in. Any number of inputs can be connected to one output. Full fan-out. One input signal can be routed to any number of outputs. Unidirectional Switch module with FFO and FFI capability. Typical size is 16 inputs by 16 outputs. Larger matrix systems are built up from these modules Bi-directional Switch module with FFO and FFI capability. Typical size is 16 by 16 with two Ports labeled A and B. Larger matrix systems are built up from these modules. Signal distribution modules. These provide multiple copies of input signals. Unidirectional Switch module with FFO capability. Typical size is 16 inputs by 16 outputs. Larger matrix systems are built up from these modules. Switch output module. A SRO is needed for matrix systems if the number of matrix inputs is greater than the number of inputs for one SRB or SRM....

In this document the terms SRB, SMC, and SRM are used to generically indicate a matrix system built from one or more of these modules or the matrix control module for such a system. A matrix larger than 16 inputs by 16 outputs (16x16) is built from all the same type of switch modules plus SRD and SRO modules. Crosspoint refers to one connection between a matrix input and output or between a matrix Port A and Port B. Some commands allow outputs or ports to be turned off. SRB or SMC modules can always turn their ports or outputs off. SRM modules with less than 16 inputs can turn their outputs off by connecting to the non-existent input 16. SRM matrices with SRO modules can also turn off their outputs at the SRO output regardless of the number of SRM module inputs. SRM matrices that do not meet either of these crit...
