Parameters and Instructions

Top  Previous  Next

 

This section contains a reference for all DS parameters and instructions.

 

Parameters are temporary overrides for settings. Parameters are not saved into the EEPROM and take immediate effect (no rebooting required). Instructions are used to make the DS perform a certain action.

 

Parameter and instruction description format can be found here.

 

All parameters and instructions can be divided into two groups:

 

On-the-fly (network-side) parameters and instructions are delivered to the DS via the network Parameter (P) command and are used to change communications mode of the serial port of the DS without rebooting (i.e. "on-the-fly") and also set and sense the state of the I/O lines of the DS. For more information see serial port and serial communications;

 

Modem (serial-side) parameters and instructions are delivered to the DS via the serial Parameter (P) command and are used to control data connection establishment and termination by the DS. For more information see Ethernet port and network communications.
