Elan g: Creating Endpoint Control Drivers


Overview

This article addresses how to create Generic devices in Elan to control endpoint functions of Just Add Power:

  • Video Wall
  • Tiling Transmitter Video, Audio, and Layout control
  • Warp Transmitter Rotate and Zoom control

This article is still a work in progress. All details collected here were done via Remote Support sessions with Elan programmers. If you have suggestions for how to improve it, please reach out to training@justaddpower.com
Thanks!


Procedure

  1. Access the project
  2. Under Input/Output, right-click on Communication Devices and create a new Communication Device.
  3. Assign the IP Address for the device and Port 23.
    • For a Video Wall, the IP Address is for one of the Receivers in the wall. Create one Communication Device for each Receiver in the wall.
    • For a Tiling Transmitter, enter the IP Address of the Transmitter (not any of the four Receivers.)
    • For a Warp Transmitter, enter the IP Address of the Transmitter (not the Receiver.)

  4. Right-click on Generic Serial Devices and create a new Generic Serial Device.
  5. Under the Communication Device dropdown, set it to the device created in Step 3.
    • If doing this for a Video Wall, you may need to create multiple devices as well.

  6. Right-click on the new Serial Device and create a Serial Code for each function needed. Be sure to use the Terminator: Carriage Return for each code.

  7. Create buttons on the interface to execute those commands.
  8. Done!
