Card ID 0 (C0) is used for the controller. See
the MT100-100 User’s Guide for details.
Ui = Unit ID (i = # from 0 to 9)
The Group ID is a number representing a group
of cards defined with the [WR] command.
When using the Group ID, all cards in the group
will perform the given instruction.
Example:
One MT103-127/128 card is in slot #4. Send
the command [C4] and receive feedback similar
to the following:
Changing the position of a card will significantly
affect the commands recorded on software
definitions or third party control systems.

7.4 MENU MODE
7.4.2 USING MENU MODE
MENU MODE commands are RS-232 commands
that allow virtually the same functionality as
programming commands. Unlike the programming
commands in the previous sections, 7.2 and 7.3,
MENU commands prompt the user to select from a
list of available options. The system then responds
based upon selections made by the user.
SUGGESTION: Before using the menu mode, it
is best to disable the automatic feedback
feature. The values and current settings will be
displayed in the menu mode, but the automatic
feature will display after each setting change
making the menus difficult to read.
1.
In order to enter MENU mode, the system
needs to be connected to a computer
running MTSetup™ or other RS-232 control
software.
2.
Insert the card into an empty slot and push
in all the way for a secure fit.
3.
Reset the system or power the system OFF
and then ON.
4.
In MTSetup™, click the cursor in the
Terminal Window and press the ENTER
key.
5.
The system will interrogate the enclosure
and return a list of cards installed and their
slot locations.
MENU commands may be issued in response to
prompts from within MTSetup™ or other RS -232
communication software.
The MENU driven commands are only available
with Multi-Tasker™ Front Panel systems that have
the following firmware:
690-0122-015 = Version 015 or later.
690-0123-004 = Version 004 or later.
690-0124-015 = Version 018 or later.
NOTE: In MTSetup™, send the command [VER]
from the Terminal Window. The system will
respond with feedback similar to the following:
[690-0122-015 690-0123-004 690-0124-018]
Check the last three digits against the numbers
above to determine if the MENU MODE option is
available.
Example: 8 (Slot 8): MT103-127
NOTE: Only cards supporting the MENU
feature will be displayed.
