TYPICAL APPLICATION
UIM2501 converter can work with one UIM242 or UID820 controller or a set of UIM242 and UID820
controllers in a CAN network. Typical applications are described below.
Single Slave Operation
If only one UIM242 or UID820 is used, following wiring scheme (figure 0-3) can be applied. For the
wiring scheme of UID820 digital IO controller, please refer to the UID820 user manual.
Please note that, this wiring scheme is mandatory when assigning a controller ID to a UIM242 controller
(motor is not required). Details are provided in Section 4.1.
Please note: Both ends of the CAN bus should be terminated with120 terminating resistors. As
UIM2501 converter has a build-in terminating resistor. To enable the terminating resistor, simply toggle
the DIP8 to the ON position. On the UIM242 controller side, user needs to attach a resistor to the end of
the bus as shown in figure 0-3.
Furthermore, CANH and CANL should be a twisted wire pair.

Please be aware that:
In multi-node CAN applications, it is important to maintain a direct point-to-point wiring scheme. A single
pair of wires should connect each element of the CAN bus, and the two ends of the bus should be
terminated with 120 resistors. A star configuration should never be used.
UIM2501 converter has a build-in terminal resistor. To enable the UIM2501 converter’s terminating
resistor, please toggle the DIP8 to ON position. User only needs to attach a resistor at the UIM242 end
of the bus.
In addition, any deviation from the point-to-point wiring scheme creates a stub. The high-speed edge of
the CAN data on a stub can create reflections back down the bus. These reflections can cause data
errors by eroding the noise margin of the system. Although stubs are unavoidable in a multi-node
system, care should be taken to keep these stubs as small as possible.

2.0 RS232 COMMUNICATION
UIM2501 controller communicates and exchanges information with user devices through the RS232
serial protocol. The RS232 configuration of user device, the hand-shaking methods, and the instruction
used to change the baud rate will be introduce in this Chapter, along with the method to reset the baud
rate to factory default.
2.1 Settings for User Device RS232 Port
To communicate with UIM2501, user device needs to have following RS232 port settings:
8 bits data
1 stop bit
None Parity
2.2 Hand-Shaking
If user device knows the baud rate, it can start sending instructions without hand-shaking.
Hand-shaking is more used as a method to check the existence and firmware version of the controller.
Hand-shaking is considered successful, if the user device receives a greeting message starting with a
message header of “0xAA, 0xAB, 0xAC”.
Under following two situations the UIM2501 will issue the greeting message,
when UIM2501 is powering up, and
When UIM2501 receives following ASCII instruction:

UIM2501
4.0 SINGLE AND NETWORK OPERATION
UIM2501 supports CAN networking. One UIM2501 can communicate with and control single or several
UIM242 controller(s). Before operation, every UIM242 controller needs to be assigned a unique
identification number (i.e., ID or address). Two or more UIM242 controllers with an identical ID in the
network may cause the network malfunctioning. The process of ID assignment is described in following
section.
4.1 Controller ID Assignment Instruction (SETADR)
All new UIM242xx controllers have been assigned a factory default ID of 5.
User can change the ID using SETADR instruction. Before assign an ID to a UIM242XX controller,
please make sure the UIM2501 controller and the UIM242XX controller are connected together using
the standalone operation scheme (Figure 0-3).
After powering up, user can use the following instruction to assign an ID to the UIM242XX controller.
SETADR=x; or SET=x;
Function
Assign an ID x to a UIM242XX controller.
Variable
Integer x = 5, 6, 7 … 125
ACK
0xAA [Controller ID] 0xDD 0xFF
0xDD is the Message ID of SETADR.
SETADR is the abbreviation of “Set Address”.
Comment
Every time there can be only one UIM242XX controller linked to the UIM2501
controller to get the ID assigned. Once an ID is assigned, the ID will be stored in
the UIM242XX controller’s non-volatile memory.
4.2 Object Specify Instruction (ADR)
To operate a specific UIM242xx controller, user needs to first notify the UIM2501 controller which
UIM242 controller is suppose to receive instructions. Therefore, before sending motor control
instructions, user needs to use the following instruction to specify the UIM242xx controller’s ID.
ADR=x;
Function
Specify the operation object by node ID x.
Variable
Integer x = 5, 6, 7 … 125
ACK
0xAA [Controller ID] 0xD0 0xFF
0xD0 is the Message ID of ADR.
ADR is the abbreviation of “address”.
Comment
Once an operation object is specified, all object specific instructions will be sent
to this specified object (the UIM242xx Controller), UNTILL another operation
object (new ID) is specified.
After the specifying the Controller ID, user can use UIM242 instructions to control the specified controller.
Those instructions are provided in the UIM242 user manual.

4.3 Global Control
Besides the object specific operation, UIM2501 can also send commands to all subsidiary UIM242XX
controllers. This process is called broadcasting or global control instruction.
Global Instruction Format
Global control instructions have the same format as shown below: a leading “g” followed by the normal
one-to-one operation instruction.
gXXX;
Where,
g
denotes the global control instruction.
XXX is the object specific operation instructions, e.g., ACR, ENA, OFF, etc.
Global Instruction ACK Message
Except the instruction gREG, BTR, all global instructions have the same ACK message as shown below:
0xAA [QTY] 0xAD 0xFF
Where,
[QTY] is the quantity of all UIM242xx controllers that are operable.
[0xAD] is the Message ID of all global instructions.
Detailed global instructions are described in following sections.
4.4 Global Register Instruction (gREG)
gREG;
Function
Record the quantity of all subsidiary UIM242 controllers and their IDs.
Variable
N/A
Feedback
0xCC [QTY] 0xD0 A1 A2 A3 A4 A5 A6 A7 A8 0xFF
QTY is the quantity of UIM242xx controllers found.
Comment
0xD0 is the Message ID of gREG. (Notice, 0xD0 also is the Message ID of
ADR. However, ACK message of ADR is started with 0xAA, while the feedback
message of gREG is started with 0xCC. )
A1~A8 are the first 8 IDs found. An = 0 means not found.
Once this instruction is executed by the UIM2501 Controller, the total number of
all subsidiary UIM242xx controllers and their ID are recorded in the UIM2501
controller. The returned QTY servers as an indicator of the health of the network.
4.5 Global Motor Enable Instruction (gENABLE)
gENABLE; or gENA;
Function
Enable the H-Bridges of all nodes (UIM242s).
Variable
N/A
ACK
0xAA [QTY] 0xAD 0xFF
Comment
User can first set the motion parameters to every UIM242xx Controller one by
one, and then issue this instruction to enable all motors’ motion.
