Control Boxer

Postby maseto » Thu Mar 30, 2017 1:50 pm

Hello,
is there a way to control multiple Christie Boxer with the free edition?
Which Port do you use?
Is there a restriction for connections?
I do not get a connection in the connection manager.
I want to shutter and switch inputs on three projectors.
Cheers Marc

Hi Marc,

Yes you can control this projector with the free edition of Widget Designer.

What you have to do is create a TCP connection between your projectors and your Widget Designer:
Most Christie Products (not all) use port 3002 to communicate via TCP

http://www.coolux.de/root/downloads/support/Documentation/Helpfile/index.html#tcp_wdconnm.htm

Next, you'll need to create a button to send the commands to the projectors:
http://www.coolux.de/root/downloads/support/Documentation/Helpfile/index.html#custom_script_button.htm

Now you need your script to send the commands using the "TCPSend," command.

The command that you'll put in this line can be found here:
https://www.christiedigital.com/SupportDocs/Anonymous/020-101697-04-Christie-LIT-TECH-REF-Boxer-4K-Serial-API.pdf


Your code to close the shutter would look like this:
Code: Select all
TCPSend,1,(SHU 1)CR LF


In the last link above, you'll find all of the commands you'll need to achieve your goal.


I hope this helps,

Justyn
