2. Computer Control
There are several computer-based methods by which to control the Tri-Color
filter.
The most common methods of interfacing to the controller are:
1. Using the ColorDRIVE filter driver software package from
Meadowlark Optics
2. Using the external input capability
(Must be configured in
ColorDRIVE)
3. Using a C/C++ program that communicates with the controller via USB
4. Developing a custom LabVIEW™ application using sub-VIs included
on the ColorDRIVE CD.
2.1 ColorDRIVE Software
ColorDRIVE provides for manual, automatic and triggered state changes. It
also allows configuration of states for automatic switching. Clicking the
Meadowlark Optics logo at the top left of the user interface displays the
software and firmware version numbers.
Figure 3 – ColorDRIVE User Interface.
2.1.1 Control Panel
Along the top of the control section are buttons and indicators that operate as
follows:
 Status Light: Above Controller menu button, illuminates as shown
below (also see Port Test below):
GREEN
Port status OK when last checked
YELLOW
User-initiated port test underway
RED
Last user-initiated port test failed
 Controller n: Pull Down menu to select between multiple controllers
connected to the same computer.
D5020 Digital Controller
User Manual, rev. 1.01
7
 Port Test: Initiates a read/write test of controller. The status light
illuminates YELLOW during the test, then GREEN or RED upon
completion. A GREEN light indicates proper communication
between the controller and the computer and a RED light indicates
a communication issue between the controller and computer.
In the event of a RED light:
1. Check the cable connections.
2. Exit ColorDRIVE, turn the controller off and back on, wait for
the LED on the controller to stop flashing, then restart
ColorDRIVE.
3. Try a different USB cable.
4. Try running the unit with a different computer.
5. If all else fails, contact Meadowlark Optics for assistance.
 Exit ColorDRIVE: Quits ColorDRIVE. The last configuration
selected in ColorDRIVE will be used by the controller until the
controller is powered off. Please note that when the controller is
powered back on, it will continue operating in the configuration it
was in when powered off. If it was cycling states, the controller
will start with the first valid state and continue cycling states in the
same way it was before. If a state was manually selected, the filter
will start in the first valid state, and remain there until changed.
 Manual Tab: This tab allows manual control of the tri-color filter’s
state. Selectable states are red, green, blue and on equipped filters,
pseudo-white.
 Cycle Tab: This tab allows selection of the various methods by which
states may be cycled automatically. These methods include:
o
Cycling automatically through the red, green and blue states,
with the time in each state controlled by values stored in the
controller. See the configuration tab information for more
details. If a state’s time is set to zero, it is skipped.
o
Cycling automatically through all valid states. A valid state is
one with a non-zero time value. As with the above mode, the
time in each state is controlled by values stored within the
controller.
o
Cycling through the red, green and blue states, changing states
only when a pulse is seen at the Trigger In connector on the
front panel.
o
Cycling through all valid states, changing states only when a
pulse is seen at the Trigger In connector on the front panel.
D5020 Digital Controller
User Manual, rev. 1.01
8
o
Randomly cycling through the red, green and blue states. The
time the filter stays in each state is the same for all states, and
is specified when this mode is selected in the software. The
time may be set to values from 100 – 65535 milliseconds.
 Configuration Tab: This tab has controls which allow copying states,
configuring timing for states and configuring sync pulse duration for
modes that output a sync pulse. These controls are:
o
Copy States. This set of controls allows copyiing of the red,
green, blue, and if equipped, white, states to the remaining 12
or 13 states the controller can store. By copying the states, the
user has the ability to configure the controller to switch
through a fixed order of states.
o
State Time. This control allows changing of the stored time
for a given state. This controls how long the filter stays in the
given state when automatically cycling. Valid state times are
1-65535 seconds.
o
Sync pulse duration. Auto cycling (non-triggered) modes can
output a pulse when the state changes. This control allows
controlling the duration of this pulse, with allowed pulse
durations of 10-1000 microseconds. The pulse may also be
turned off.
2.2 Additional Digital Interface Control Options
There are other digital interface control options: user created program to
communicate with the controller via USB, or by using custom LabVIEW VIs
supplied by Meadowlark Optics. Table 2 details a complete list of ASCII
firmware commands that may be used when performing USB or HyperTerminal
control. Note that all commands are lower case.
2.2.1 USB Control via C / C++ program
The user can write a program that communicates directly with the controller
through a USB connection. Included on the ColorDRIVE CD (Source Code
folder) is a source code file (usb_ver.cpp) that initializes a USB connection to
the controller, sends a ver:? command and reads the status response (after
sending any command, status must be read before another command can be
sent). This program may be used as a starting point and modified as necessary
to perform the desired task(s). Header file usbdrvd.h must be included in the
source code and either the library file usbdrvd.dll or usbdrvd.lib (all included on
the ColorDRIVE CD) must be linked in the final program. The sample code
uses usbdrvd.dll; however some compilers will require the usbdrvd.lib file. If a
D5020 Digital Controller
User Manual, rev. 1.01

user developed or modified application program is to be distributed in any way,
please contact Meadowlark Optics for licensing and copyright details.
2.2.2 ASCII Commands
The Tri-color Filter’s available ASCII commands are summarized in Table 1.
These commands are useful for extending the LabVIEW examples described in
section 3.3.3 or writing software in C or C++, or in other languages that can
interface with the included usbdrvd.dll. Please note that Meadowlark Optics is
unable to give programming support.
