The Complete ProXR Command Set
The ProXR Standard for Data Collection and Control
ProXR Boards and SoftwareBy now, you have seen ProXR all over our web site. Just about every controller we currently make is a ProXR controller. You will find ProXR in relays, inputs, outputs, potentiometers, analog to digital conversion, and much more. Put simply, ProXR is a standardized set of commands. When you choose a ProXR controller, you can upgrade that controller without having to re-write your software. One of the greatest benefits to ProXR is that you can develop your software to work with (for instance) an RS-232 device. Later on, you may find you don't want to use RS-232 any more. Maybe you want to talk to the device wirelessly, or maybe use an Ethernet, Wi-Fi, USB, or Bluetooth interface. No Problem. You don't have to re-write your program. You can simply use the communication technology that most benefits your application WITHOUT having to redevelop your software.
ProXR is rooted in simplicity just as much as it is standardization. Most people who visit our web site are programmers who need to integrate a custom hardware application with a minimal learning curve. If you are a programmer, then you are ready to dive right in and start communicating with our devices. But we also work with several customers who have NO PROGRAMMING EXPERIENCE. And we take pride in making sure these people are brought up to speed with a simple set of tutorials. So weather you are a programmer or an electrician, we can help get you started. We move at a pace you can easily follow, so you don't have to worry too much about steep learning curves. We put a lot of effort into making our devices easy to use and standardized, while supporting all of today's popular communication technologies at a pace anyone can understand.
Before we dive into the command set, there are three reading prerequisites:
1) Our articles will introduce you to various technologies, and you should read the article that pertains to your favored communication technology first. Click here to see our articles.
2) Review our tutorials, they will give you everything you need for first time users to configure a programming language to speak to our devices.
3) Our ProXR Manual gives you lots of background details on our robust and growing ProXR command set. Use it as a reference, even if you are an experienced programmer.
The purpose of this article is to give you a convenient location to review a summary of ProXR commands. This list will only grow as our products evolve. This list is divided into 4 simple categories: Input, Parameters, Description, and Output.
Example: The following command activates the first relay in Bank 1
If your programming language supports HEX instead of decimal values, you can send the same thing by converting the command to its equivalent HEX values:
