Advanced operation
This section explains commands for daisy chain connection. The basic communication procedure is the
same as in the “Basic operation” section.
<ID numbers>
You can assign a unique ID number to each monitor (see page 34). This allows you to control a particular
monitor in a daisy chain of monitors.
Up to about 20 monitors can be connected, depending on the length of RS-232C cables and installation
environment.
You can assign ID numbers either from the menu screen (via remote control or the control buttons on the
monitor) or from the PC using RS-232C cable.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
If monitors are connected as shown above, you can execute commands like “Set the volume of the
monitor with ID 4 to 20”.
When controlling monitors linked in a daisy chain by designating ID numbers, you should basically avoid
any duplication of ID numbers.
If the same ID number is assigned to multiple monitors, only the monitor closest to the PC can be controlled with that ID number.
If monitors are connected as shown below, only the monitor (1) can be accessed with ID number 2.
Monitor (2) cannot be controlled using that ID number.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
(1)
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
(2)
ID numbers do not have to be assigned in ascending order starting from the PC. They can also be connected as shown below.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 3
ID number: 2
ID number: 4
ID number: 1

<Commands for ID control>
The command examples shown on this page assume the following connection and ID number set up.
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
ID number: 3
ID number: 4
IDST......A monitor receiving this command sets its own ID number in the parameter field.
Example: IDST0001
OK_001 ← The ID number of this monitor is set to 1.
Note
After linking monitors, you can automatically assign ID numbers by using the IDST command with
the Repeater control (see “Repeater control” on page 49).
[Example]
PC
Set 1
Set 2
Set 3
Set 4
If you connect monitors as shown above, and use the command “IDST001+”, ID numbers will be set
automatically, as shown below.
[Example]
PC
ID number: 1
ID number: 2
IDST001+ ← ID setting command with repeater control

PC Operation (Continued)
<Repeater control>
This system has a function to allow setting of multiple monitors connected in a daisy chain using a
single command. This function is called repeater control.
The number of connectable monitors varies depending on the length of the cable used and the surrounding environment.
You can use Repeater control function without assigning ID numbers.
[Example]
PC
Set 1
Set 2
Set 3
Set 4
If monitors are connected as shown above, you can execute a command like “Set all monitors’ input
settings to INPUT1”.
<Repeater control command>
Repeater control is achieved by setting the FOURTH CHARACTER of the parameter to “+”.
Example:
VOLM030+
← Sets volume of all monitors to 30.
In repeater control, responses are returned by all the connected monitors.*
If you want to determine that a value has been returned by a specific set, assign ID numbers to
each monitor in advance.
If no response is returned, this may be because the monitor has not received (or is still processing)
the command, so it is possible that new commands may not be executed even if they
are sent.
* If power is turned “OFF” using Repeater control, only the monitor closest to the PC returns a response.
Example:
(When 4 monitors are connected, and assigned ID numbers 1 through 4)
VOLM030+
WAIT
OK_001
OK_002
OK_003
OK_004
← If 4 monitors are connected in a chain, reliable operation can be ensured by sending
a new command only after a reply has been returned by 4th (last) monitor.
Repeater control can also be used for reading settings.
Example:
VOLM???+
WAIT
10 001
20 002
Volume settings for all monitors are returned.
30 003
40 004
• If repeater control is used during ID designation (IDSL, IDLK), the ID designation is canceled.

Solution:
• If the monitor enters standby mode due to a rise in temperature, you can turn off the main power
switch and turn it back on again. However the monitor will enter standby mode again if the cause of
the temperature rise is not eliminated.
• Check whether the monitor is placed at a location where a quick rise in temperature is likely. Internal
temperature rises quickly if the vents on the back are blocked.
• Internal temperature rises quickly if dust accumulates inside the monitor or around the vents.
Remove dust if possible. Ask your dealer about removing internal dust.
• If the power LED blinks red, there might be a problem with the fan.
ENGLISH
■ Warning when temperature rises
Nature of warning:
• The power LED lights up red and the monitor enters standby mode.
Cracking sound
The monitor sometimes makes a cracking sound.
• You may hear cracking sound from the monitor. This happens
when the cabinet slightly expands and contracts according to
change in temperature. This does not affect the monitor’s
performance.
