Panasonic Projectors and Widget

Postby jaykoller » Sun Jan 03, 2016 9:41 pm

Has anyone successfully used the Projector Control Node with PJLink? I have searched for pieces and found 1/2 answers but no success in setting this up.

A screen shot of the node and commands would be nice.

Thanks!

I can get the node to connect (one green light) but sending shutter commands and shut down commands according to PJLink does nothing.

I am pretty sure I am using the correct commands. Any tips?

Maybe you need a carriage return, just append "[CR]". Assuming the command is "(COMMAND)" you should write

Code: Select all
(COMMAND)[CR]


The [CR] generates the control character that is sent when one presses the ENTER key when in a terminal. This is commonly used as a "execute command" control character.

Thanks Dennis,

We finally got it working. Lots of combos of different items that were causing issues. When I get a second off this show I will post our exact configuration, as I am sure someone will find it useful in the future.

Hi
With panasonic is the login sometime's

admin: user1
pw: panasonic

admin: admin1
pw: panasonic


Lamp on :
Code: Select all
%1POWR 1[CR LF]

Lamp off :
Code: Select all
%1POWR 0[CR LF]

Shutter open:
Code: Select all
%1AVMT 30[CR]

Shutter Close:
Code: Select all
%1AVMT 31[CR]


all the scripts works on projector control node
but only the shutter command is working with tcpsend script.

The widget main ipadress is 2.1.1.100 ( COOLUX NETWERK )
The projectors Ip-range is 192.168.2.xxx

The TCP connections are all connected with the projectors.
So thats looks fine.

But if i send a start up or shutdown command from a tcpsend it don't works but from projector control node it works.
What i'm i missing here.

not working here :
Code: Select all
tcpsend,[ID],%1POWR 0[CR LF]

works:
Code: Select all
tcpsend,[ID],%AVMT 31[CR]

Be Careful not to start all your projectors at once! A couple might not cause much of an issue, but if you have a handful on the same power drop, all of them starting at once will cause a potential amperage overload of the drop.

Something like this:

TCPSend,[id],%1POWR 1[CR LF]
WDWait,4
TCPSend,[id],%1POWR 1[CR LF]
WDWait,4
TCPSend,[id],%1POWR 1[CR LF]

Etc....
Thank You

All-
I was wanting to somehow test the Nodes and some other commands I had written. Jay Koller Thanks so much for getting me on the right track.

After some poking around I found this, I was able to test all aspects of the PJLink Node and even some feed back with errors and everything, Here is a website link to a small application to do exactly what we need, test the Nodes (if there is not a projector available to test with). Link to app download.

http://pjlink.jbmia.or.jp/english/data/5-2_test_cd.zip

Or if you want to visit the website and poke around:

http://pjlink.jbmia.or.jp/english/dl.html

There are some manuals you can download as well to show you how to use their apps to test with. It was a big help for me. You can even test authentication modes, setting passwords, or not using authentication.

Let me know if this is of any help.
Thank You

To add to your tip on not starting all of the projectors at once Chris,

You can do all of your projectors in just 4 lines of code:

Code: Select all
for 1 to 1000
TCPSend,for.index,%1POWR 1[CR LF]
WDWait,4
Next

HA~! Yes of course.... Thanks Justyn for that. Much much more efficient.

I forget about the For Loop.
