Will the System 9700 version 9 software support ASCII commands?

Issue

System 9700 version 9 includes ASCII command support via RS232 or RS422 port on the CM9700-CC1.  Although, internal ASCII support is available, an external CM9760-DT/DT4 can also be used.

Environment

Cause

The integration of the 9700 System and 3rd party software requires a method of sending commands to the 9700 System.  The ASCII commands may include monitor and camera switching or advanced alarm handling.

Resolution

System 9700 ASCII commands are supported using two methods
 
  • Method 1:  External Data Translator which requires the addition of the CM9760-DT or CM9760-DT4.
  • Method 2:  Internal Data Translator which is a direct connect to either an available RS232 or RS422 serial port on the CM9700-CC1.
  • Reference CM9700-MGR Software Guide page 37 for details.
