• Do not remove the covers around the
Command Console
• Do not connect or disconnect the

INTRODUCTION
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The ultra-slim Command Console SL model is designed for rapid deployable applications
and fits any 19” RETMA rack or transit case. The Command Console SL model brings
together a 19” (1280 x 1024) flat panel display, a full size water tight keyboard and track
ball all in only 1.75” (1U) height.
The Command Console SL model also solved cable retracting problems. An integral
custom engineered articulating arm provides smooth cable management which eliminates
cables from getting tangled and caught on other equipment as the Console is pulled in
and out of the rack.
To further assure rapid deployment, dual quick-lock/release mechanisms hold the Command Console SL model firmly in the storage position and allow it to be quickly set up
and operational. A custom torque adjustable hinge can be adjusted to hold the display
securely at any viewing angle, in the most turbulent situations.
The Command Console SL model is manufactured entirely from lightweight, aircraft
grade, CNC machined aluminum and finished with a tough, baked powder coating to
provide the utmost strength, durability and light weight.
All configurations have the following “key features”:
• USB Connections or PS/2 Connections (connector clamp-down) for keyboard and TB.
• 88-key water tight keyboard.
• Three button sealed trackball
• 12-function keys and arrow keys.
• Fits 24in and 25in deep racks.

INSTALLATION
HARDWARE INSTALLATION
Remove the outer rack mounting slide
channels from the Console.
On the rear unscrew the left and right
rear rack mounting brackets to free up
the outer rack mounting slide channels
from the Console.
Press the spring loaded Z Locks towards
the middle to release the outer rack
mount slide channels and at the same
time slide the rack mounting block back.
Slide the channels back until they stop
about half way back. This is a safety stop
to prevent the Console from sliding out
too far while mounted to the rack.
Simultaneously press in the first set of
safety catches on each slide rail and
slide the channel until the second safety
catches stop the sliding action.
Simultaneously press in the second set
of safety catches on each slide rail and
slide the channel all the way off the back
of the Console.

INSTALLATION
Install Rails
Both outer rack mount slide channels
should be separated at this time.
The slide channels come pre-assembled
to fit a 24” deep rack. To fit a 25” rack, the
rear mounting bracket can be repositioned
as shown here.
8
Doc# 27-0032UM Rev A Issued 07/05
INSTALLATION
To mount the channels on the front of the
RETMA rails (in most cases), use two 1032 Phillips screws...
on each side to secure the Z-Lock mounts.
Be sure to press the slide rail flat against
the RETMA rail as you tighten the screws.
On the rear of the cabinet frame, also use
two Phillips screws on each rail to secure.
On the slide rails, using a screwdriver and
wrench, tighten the slide extension rail
screw. Repeat on each side.

Install Console
Pull the two Console inner members of the
slides out until they lock in the second lock
position.
Hold the Console with the front toward you
and as horizontal as possible. NOTE: In
the next step, be sure to carefully support
and guide the power supply at the rear of
the Console.
Guide the Console’s inner slide member
into the middle slide member, and gently
slide the Console into the slide assembly
until it stops. This may require a second
person to support the power supply.
Press in the first set of catches on each
slide and slide the channel until the second
safety catches stop the sliding action.
Simultaneously press in the second set of
safety catches on each slide rail and slide
the channel all the way off the back of the
Console.
From the back of the rack, gently guide the
power supply toward you.

Disclaimer
Z Microsystems warrants that every product is free from defects in materials, workmanship and conforms to Z Microsystems’ stringent specifications.
Z Microsystems calculates the expiration of the warranty period from the date the product
is shipped. This means that the ship date on your invoice is your product ship date unless
Z Microsystems informs you otherwise. During the warranty period, Z Microsystems will
provide warranty service under the type of warranty purchased for the product.
Replacement parts will assume the remaining warranty of the parts they replace. If a
product does not function as warranted during the warranty period, Z Microsystems will
repair or replace the part (with a product that is as a minimum functionally equivalent)
without charge.
If the product is transferred to another user, the warranty service is available to that user
for the remainder of the warranty period.
Z Microsystems’ warranties are voided if the covered product is damaged due to an accident or abuse. The warranty is voided if the product is shipped in sufficient packaging.
Under no circumstances is Z Microsystems liable for any of the following:
1. Third-party claims against you for losses or damages,
2. Loss of, or damage to, your records or data, or
3. Economic consequential damages (including lost profits or savings) or
incidental damages, even if Z Microsystems is informed of their possibility.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives
you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights that vary from jurisdiction to
jurisdiction.
Warranty does not take effect until full payment is received by Z Microsystems.

communication with the display.
SPEED
19,200 BPS
DATA BITS
8
PARITY
None
STOP BITS
1
FLOW CONTROL None
The serial control ICD commands are presented here for the user’s knowledge. The
commands are written and controlled by Z Microsystems and are not intended for the
customer to use. Any improper use of the commands may place the panel in an unstable
state and may degrade the image quality, thereby voiding the warranty by the user.
Command Structure
The command structure for the majority of the commands for the display follow the following structure:
Z<space>U<space><command><space><argument>
where...
“command” = the ascii string that represents the command
“argument” = the optional argument to the command
“space” = ascii character 0x20
The command structure must be succeeded by a carriage return (0x0D).
The controller returns a string of tildes (‘~’) indicating that the command has been accepted and processed. Some of the commands return other information which will be
specified on a per command basis.
Unless otherwise specified the command strings examined in this document must be
placed in the above structure when being sent to the controller.
The commands will be broken down by the image on which it operates (i.e. the main image). There may be overlap between the different images and the commands that work on
them.
Main Image—Standard Command Structure
The following commands operate on the main image.
PAA
Description
PAA has the controller perform its auto adjust algorithm. This often helps the main image

placed in auto detect mode. The unit does not allow itself to be placed on a dead channel
after it has acquired a signal. If the controller has a good signal coming in on channel A
and the controller is told to listen to channel B and channel B has no signal the controller
will switch back to channel A.
Argument
For Auto mode 66, channel A 88, channel B 99 all base10. Default is Auto mode.
Return
The channel being listened to is returned in the following syntax:
