Initial version.
SIM2 C3X LINK
RS-232C CONTROL SPECIFICATIONS
1. Introduction
This document describes the communication and data formats used to control SIM2 C3X LINK projector via
RS-232C port.
2. Connection
Switch off the Personal Computer the Projector before connecting RS 232C cable.
Use a standard serial cable with 9 pin female to the Personal Computer and 9 pin male to the Projector: pin
2 connects to pin2, pin 3 to pin 3 and pin 5 to pin 5.
SIM2 C3X LINK RS-232C Port is described as follows.

3. Communication Protocol
The communication protocol is packet oriented. Packets consists of Header and Payload.
There are two types of packets: Event and Operation.
The packet header size is fixed (7 bytes), while the packet payload type and content varies based on the
type of packet: Event payload size is 6 bytes, while Operation payload size is 25 bytes.
The entire packet size is variable, being the sum of the fixed-size packet header and variable-sized packet
payload: Event packet size is 13 bytes and Operation packet size is 32 bytes.
Header
All Packets use the same Packet Header format.
The Packet Header size is fixed at seven bytes.

Packet Checksum (CRC)
0xEFBE is a fixed value that is used to insure packet alignment if there are partial packets received or byte
lost. The least-significant byte of the word (BE) is sent first, then the most-significant-byte (EF).
The Packet Type is a number (a byte in length) that defines the type of data in the packet.
The Packet Payload Size is a number (two bytes) that defines the size of the payload portion of the
packet. For a given Packet Type, Packet Size is fixed.
The Packet Checksum (two bytes) is the CRC value for the entire packet (Header and Payload).
Payload
The packet payload format depends on the packet type.
The Event packet payload size is 6 bytes, while the Operation packet payload size is 25 bytes.

The response of the unit to a correct Operation Code consists of the byte 1E followed by a copy of the
packet that has been sent to the unit, where, however:
byte number 11 is set at 01,
CRC (bytes number 6 and 7) has been altered accordingly.

Get Codes
Get Commands may be used to get the current value of projector parameters.
The response to a correct Get Command consists of 33 byte packet, where Byte Number 11 contains the
Validation Code (01) and bytes Number 17 and Number 18 the requested value (the least-significant byte of
the value being sent first). Of course CRC (bytes number 6 and 7) has been altered accordingly.

Returned value is indeterminate when the unit is in No Signal state.
Returned value may be different from the value displayed on the OSD, as in the latter, the values have
been normalized to the 0-100 range.
(2)
Returned value is valid only when Video, S-Video, RGBS 15 kHz, YPrPb 15 kHz or YPrPb 32 kHz
signals are displayed. Returned value is indeterminate when other signals are displayed and when the
unit is in No Signal state.
(3)
Returned value is valid only when Video (NTSC), S-Video (NTSC), RGBS 15 kHz, YPrPb 15 kHz
signals are displayed. Returned value is indeterminate when other signals are displayed and when the

5. Examples
1. Send the simulated "SWITCH ON FROM STAND-BY" Remote Control keycode.
Remote Control allows Switching on from Stand-by via the key "0".
Send the code relative to key "0":
BEEF020600A7F79E0100000000.
The projector switches on and the last source memorised prior to switch off is automatically selected.
The projector returns the response code: 06 (Acknowledged with no error).
2. Send the simulated "MENU RIGHT" Remote Control keycode.
Send the packet:
BEEF02060023E75A0100000000.
The OnScreen Display appers on the screen.
The projector returns the response code: 06 (Acknowledged with no error).
3. Send the "SET ASPECT ANAMORPHIC" Operation Code.
Send the packet:
BEEF0206009DF5840100000000.
The Aspect Ratio changes to Anamorphic.
The projector returns the response code: 06 (Acknowledged with no error).
4. Select "INPUT 5 (COMP RGB 1) WITH YcrCb 15kHz SIGNAL"
Send the packet:
BEEF0319005B0C01820800000000000008000000000000000000000000000000
Wait for the return code and add an additional delay of 50 ms.
Send the the code relative to the Key to which Input 5 has been assigned: for instance if the key is "3"
the code is:
BEEF02060062E44B0100000000
5. Get "COLOR TEMPERATURE" Value for the Current Source
Send the packet:
BEEF0319009D0B02C20900000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
The unit returns the code:
1EBEEF031900C41F02C2090100000000000D000000000000000000000000000000
where bytes Number 17 and Number 18 (underlined above) carry the requested value. The returned
value is 0D which corresponds to point 14 in the OSD Color Temperature chart.
6. Warnings
When the number of bytes sent to the Projector is greater than indicated for the Command (32 bytes for
Operation Packets and 13 bytes for Event Packets), excess data will be ignored.
Conversely, if number of bytes sent to the Projector is smaller than required by the Communication Protocol,
the command may be ignored.
Command execution time may vary from few milliseconds to 500 milliseconds, depending on the operation
that have been requested.
If the unit is busy when a command is sent, the unit may not accept the command. If several commands are
to be sent one after the other, sufficient time between them should be allowed.
