Aton

From HSYCO
Jump to: navigation, search

Aton AH66T is a multi-zone audio system. The integration with HSYCO can be accomplished via direct control through the RS232 port on the module.

The Aton I/O Server in HSYCO supports the integration of more than one unit within the same HSYCO interface.

Communication

Employ a DE-9 (often called DB-9) female-male RS-232 straight cable to connect the AH66T COM1 port to the serial port on HSYCO SERVER (female DB9 to RJ45 adaptor is included in AH66T packaging).

RS-232 parameters:

Baud rate same as set on the module (115200/57600/38400/19200/9600)
Data bits 8
Stop bit 1
Parity none
Flow control none

ATON Configuration

The ATON module must be configured to enable the communication with HSYCO.

Use the ATON SystemWorx tool to modify the configuration:

Note Make sure to specify “ExtControl” as Driver Type of COM Port 1, set the serial communication parameters, and transfer the configuration to the module.

HSYCO Configuration

Add an ATON I/O Server in the I/O Servers section of the Settings and set its parameters:

Communication

  • Comm ID: select the comm port connected to the panel.

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.

User Interface

Aton Object

The user interface for the Aton multi-room system:

USER Commands

To send a user command to the I/O Server just set the name to the ID of a writable (W) datapoint and the parameter to one of the possible values.

For instance, setting the name of a user button to “aton.z1.power” and its param field to “flip”, will result in having a switch for zone 1. Naming it “aton.z1.source” with a valid source as param (e.g. “1”, “2”, or “R1”) will result in a button for setting the audio source of the zone.

The volume control is both a display field for the current volume status, and a control to set the volume level of a zone. You should use the slider or sliderbutton object for this control and set both its ID and Address fields to “serverID.zN.volume”.
