ESC/VP

From HSYCO
Jump to: navigation, search

This I/O Server control SEIKO EPSON projectors which include a wide range of multi-source projectors remotely controllable via Ethernet, serial port, and USB connection. HSYCO SERVER integrates these devices through Ethernet connection.

The used protocol is compliant with the ESC/VP21 protocol specifications.

Projector Configuration

Use an Ethernet straight cable to connect the device to the HSYCO SERVER network.

In order to be able to control the device with HSYCO some initial configuration of the SEIKO EPSON device is needed.

In the “Network” section of the main menu, assign a suitable fixed IP address to the device and set the DHCP option to off.

Further, in the “Extended” section, make sure the option “Standby mode” is set to “communication on”.

HSYCO Configuration

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

Communication

  • IP Address: IP address of the device
  • IP Port: TCP/IP port to use, leave blank to use default port 3629.

High Availability

  • Shutdown when inactive: defaults to true.

Options

ID Default Values Description
gui true true enable support for UISET actions and USER commands
false disable UI support
pollinterval 3 n > 0 the data acquisition interval, in seconds
serial false true the projector is connected using its serial port
false the projector is connected using its Ethernet port

Datapoints

ID Value R/W Description
connection online R connection established
offline R HSYCO can't connect to the device
power 1 R the projector is on and ready
W turn on the projector
0 R the projector is off or not ready
W turn off the projector

source <src> R the current source is <src>
W set the source to <src>
command <cmd> W send <cmd> as command to the projector. The command must be compliant with the ESC/VP21 protocol

Source values
The source value <src> consists of a two-characters code which variates depending on the model of the projector. For instance, for the model G5000, the code “21” corresponds to the RGB input and the code “45” to the BNC video source. Refer to the ESC/VP21 Command User’s Guide for a complete list of source codes for the different models.
