An RS232 Windows Application for the PMD570 is
available for free download (see www.d-mpro.com to
download). The Application lets you control and setup
the PMD570 from your PC.
Connect your Windows compatible computer to the
PMD570 via the REMOTE RS-232C connector on the
PMD570 to your computer's RS-232C port. Install the
software on your computer.

RS-232C control
Connect a male (D-Sub 9 Pin) to female (D-Sub 9 Pin)
straight cable for RS-232C external control by host equipment.
• The RS-232C host can control functions of the
PMD570 externally
• The PMD570 automatically transmits status data when
status is changed.
• The PMD570 will respond to status requests by
transmitting the associated status data.

1. The host requests data by setting RTS to L.
2. Upon data request by CTS, the PMD570 responds
by setting RTS to H if not busy.
3. The host checks if CTS is H and stats data output
on TxD.
4. When data output finishes, the host sets RTS to H.
5. The PMD570 checks if CTS is H and sets RTS to L.

Notes:
The receiving side ignores data received prior to "@".
If code data is received without receiving "@", the
data receive error code will be returned.
The tolerance for send/receive clock error is ±10%.
For sending a command, wait more than 20ms after
reception of a response (OK, ERR or Status).
Reception of 0Dh or timeout is used to determine the
end of a command. Timeout occurs 1 second after the
reception of the last byte.

Control command codes
Host sends a command that causes a change in
PMD570 status.
The control command packets have a data length of 7~10
bytes. ASCII codes from 0x00 to 0x7f are used to receive
serial data. At the transmission end, take steps to convert
the ASCII codes into HEX data to set the data in the data
packets. CR (0x0d) is added as the data packet delimiter.

Control Command
Example: Control command code for number 5 (ASCII
code @02305CR)
Received Command
OK
Host sends a command that causes no change in
PMD570 status. For example, Host requests Play
during Playback.

Status Request and Status Information codes :
Typical Host
The status data packets have a fixed data length of 8 bytes.
ASCII codes from 0x00 to 0x7f are used to transmit serial
data. For this reason, the ASCII codes are converted into
HEX data before the data is set in the data packets and
transmitted. CR (0x0d) is added as the data packet delimiter.
Received Command
Example: Status Information code "Door open"
Status Request Commands from the host are received
by the PMD570, then the status information code is
transmitted to the host.
Received Command
0
When transmitting commands consecutively, put more than
100ms blank between commands.

When a Status Request Command from the host is
received by the PMD570, the PMD570 sends the
Status Information to the host. When the PMD570
changes status, the PMD570 automatically sends
Status Information to the host.
