Initialize (I) command
|Top Previous Next|
Description (see command description format info here)
Initialize command restores the settings of the DS to their default factory values**. Some settings are initialized each time this command is executed. Other settings are initialized or left intact depending on the interface (network or serial) through which the Initialize command was issued and also on whether or not a particular setting contained a valid or invalid value.
All settings can be divided into three groups:
When issued through the network, the Initialize command requires prior login using the Login (L) command (programming session must be opened). Denied (D) reply code is returned if the programming session is not in progress or if it doesn't belong to the sender of the Initialize command- the DS remembers the IP-address of the network host that opens the programming session and requires that all subsequent commands (that require prior login) are sent from the same IP.
Failed (F) reply code is returned if the DS fails to reset one or more settings. This usually indicates a hardware malfunction (EEPROM failure).
* Without prior selection using Select In Broadcast Mode (W) command.
** Or the values defined by the Custom profile created by the User.
*** Each setting's data is protected by an individual checksum.
