point.
Special Characters:
The symbol “Degree” is sent as an “underscore _”. The “Degree” being 0xDF,
has the eighth bit set and to make sure that it’s not mistaken as blinking its
being sent as Underscore (0x5F). For example: To display “Air Temp 99°F”,
the packet will be “Air Temp 99_F”.
Error Conditions:
If the AQ-CO-SERIAL is not communicating with Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS
a Display command will be sent stating “Pro Logic Comm Bus Communication Lost”.

Refer to the diagram below. The Home Automation system is connected to
the RS232 (J3) connector. To communicate with Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic
PS, the connectors J2 or J4 are used. (J2 and J4 are connected in parallel
internally).
The Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS communicates to its peripherals via a half
duplex asynchronous RS-485 link that also supplies DC power. All peripherals
are wired in parallel on this bus. The Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS is the
master of the bus, and devices only transmit when queried. For example, to
receive a keypress from any one of the remote controls, the Aqua Logic PS/Pro
Logic PS requests pending keys every 100 ms, and then listens for an answer.
If any remote control has a pending keypress, it is immediately sent back to
the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS.
The AQ-CO-SERIAL relieves the Home Automation system from having to respond to the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS timing and command response
requirements. It is a simple board with a processor, a ground isolated RS232
interface via DB9 connector, and a terminal strip for connection to the Aqua
Logic PS/Pro Logic PS bus. It performs as a slave to Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic
PS and as a bi-directional interface to the Home Automation System. All the
commands needed to emulate a remote control are supported: sending a
keypress to the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS, and receiving text and LED
status.
The Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS-16
has 16 internal relays. The PS-4 and
PS-8-V has 4 relays. The PS-8 and
PS-16-V has 8 relays. The “V” models double the AUX buttons for use
as macro buttons called “groups”. The
image on page 2 is of a PS-16 remote with all keys un-labeled. The
remote is shipped with adhesive labels which allow customization of the
keyboard. The same list of labels are
available in the system software so
that a relay or valve can be more appropriately named.

Shown below is a labeled remote control to a Pro Logic PS pool control. Note
that labels have been placed over the generic names to make the keys human

These names also have been selected in the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS
configuration menu so that when the user presses “Spa Jets” a message says
“Spa Jets Turned On” appears on the display.

Note that buttons may not respond under certain conditions. For example,
pressing “Cleaner” while the Pool Filter is OFF, will result in the message
“Interlock prevents turn on” being displayed and the LED will not light up.
There are many such special features and interlocks in the Aqua Logic PS/Pro
Logic PS.
The menu button selects the Aqua
Logic PS/Pro Logic PS menus.
The navigation keys surrounding
the menu button allows movement
through sub menus (“<“ and “>”)
and value changes (“+” and “-”).
All feedback is via the 2 x 20 alphanumeric display.

Thus, for the home automation system to send a key, a Press and a Release
command are required. The Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS will always react to
the “Press” command. In some menus where value scrolling is supported, a
delay between the press and release greater than two seconds will start the
value scrolling. A common use of scrolling is setting the temperature of the
heater or the chlorination rate of the chlorine generator.
The AQ-CO-SERIAL will forward an Update LED or Update Display command
if a change in content is detected since the previous transmission of such
commands. These commands are sent once every 2 seconds, even if no
information has changed.
Framing and Rate: Asynchronous serial mode is used with the following
character format: 1 start bit, 8 data bits, no parity and 2 stop bits. The data
rate is 19.2 kbps. The basic frame structure used is shown below.
Each frame begins with a DLE (10H) and STX (02H) character start sequence,
followed by a 2 to 61 byte long Command/Data field, a 2-byte Checksum and
a DLE (10H) and ETX (03H) character end sequence.
The DLE, STX and Command/Data fields are added together to provide the 2byte Checksum. If any of the bytes of the Command/Data Field or Checksum
are equal to the DLE character (10H), a NULL character (00H) is inserted into
the transmitted data stream immediately after that byte. That NULL character
must then be removed by the receiver.
If an LED bit is a 1, then that LED is on. If the LED bit is a 1 and it’s associated Blink LED bit is a 1, then that LED should blink at a rate of once per
second (half second on/half second off).

sent as:
Display Light
Note that the second line is blank. And the Bit 2 will be set to 1. The
actual Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS display will show its current mode:
The menus are mainly used to
configure the pool and change
temperature setpoints. Most user
interaction is via the direct-access keys in the lower half of the control.
Command overview:
These are the standard commands which are used for communicating between the Home Automation (HA) and the AQ-CO-SERIAL. To keep this system simple, these commands are very similar to the commands used on the
Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS bus.

For PS Models, in order to make a character blink, the eighth bit of the corresponding character is set. Refer to the following example:
'1' = 31H = 00110001, '1' does not blink
'1' = B1H = 10110001, '1' blinks

Response:
None
After the Configuration Menu is unlocked, Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS sends
the Beeper command indicating the occurrence. The Update Key Pad Release command for the Unlock Configuration Menu has to be sent at this
point.
Special Characters:
The symbol “Degree” is sent as an “underscore _”. The “Degree” being 0xDF,
has the eighth bit set and to make sure that it’s not mistaken as blinking its
being sent as Underscore (0x5F). For example: To display “Air Temp 99°F”,
the packet will be “Air Temp 99_F”.
Error Conditions:
If the AQ-CO-SERIAL is not communicating with Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS
a Display command will be sent stating “Pro Logic Comm Bus Communication Lost”.

Refer to the diagram below. The Home Automation system is connected to
the RS232 (J3) connector. To communicate with Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic
PS, the connectors J2 or J4 are used. (J2 and J4 are connected in parallel
internally).
The Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS communicates to its peripherals via a half
duplex asynchronous RS-485 link that also supplies DC power. All peripherals
are wired in parallel on this bus. The Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS is the
master of the bus, and devices only transmit when queried. For example, to
receive a keypress from any one of the remote controls, the Aqua Logic PS/Pro
Logic PS requests pending keys every 100 ms, and then listens for an answer.
If any remote control has a pending keypress, it is immediately sent back to
the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS.
The AQ-CO-SERIAL relieves the Home Automation system from having to respond to the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS timing and command response
requirements. It is a simple board with a processor, a ground isolated RS232
interface via DB9 connector, and a terminal strip for connection to the Aqua
Logic PS/Pro Logic PS bus. It performs as a slave to Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic
PS and as a bi-directional interface to the Home Automation System. All the
commands needed to emulate a remote control are supported: sending a
keypress to the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS, and receiving text and LED
status.
The Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS-16
has 16 internal relays. The PS-4 and
PS-8-V has 4 relays. The PS-8 and
PS-16-V has 8 relays. The “V” models double the AUX buttons for use
as macro buttons called “groups”. The
image on page 2 is of a PS-16 remote with all keys un-labeled. The
remote is shipped with adhesive labels which allow customization of the
keyboard. The same list of labels are
available in the system software so
that a relay or valve can be more appropriately named.

Introduction: The AQ-CO-SERIAL is a serial home automation module that
provides a command set which enables any attached system to fully emulate
an Aqua Logic PS pool control running software rev 2.2 or later or any Pro Logic
PS pool control. Thus, buttons can be transmitted, and the Aqua Logic PS/Pro
Logic PS LED and messaging display states are returned.
A complete description of the operation of an Aqua Logic PS or Pro Logic PS
can be found in the user manuals at www.goldlinecontrols.com.
Tools Needed:
-RS232 Cable (Straight through Male to Female DB9 Cable, 25' max)
-Four conductor low voltage control wire up to 100 feet (RS-485 wiring)
-Aqua Logic PS model pool control with Rev: 2.2 or later firmware
OR
Pro Logic PS model pool control
Functionality:
The AQ-CO-SERIAL interconnects an RS-232 bus from any Home Automation
system with the Aqua Logic PS/Pro Logic PS using the powered RS-485. A
typical system is shown below.
