ANIUSB Command Strings

The device is connected via Ethernet to a control system, such as AMX, Crestron or Extron.

Connection: Ethernet (TCP/IP; select “Client” in the AMX/Crestron program)

Port: 2202

Conventions

The device has 4 types of strings:

GET Finds the status of a parameter. After the AMX/Crestron sends a GET command, the ANIUSB responds with a REPORT string
SET Changes the status of a parameter. After the AMX/Crestron sends a SET command, the ANIUSB will respond with a REPORT string to indicate the new value of the parameter.
REP When the ANIUSB receives a GET or SET command, it will reply with a REPORT command to indicate the status of the parameter. REPORT is also sent by the ANIUSB when a parameter is changed on the ANIUSB or through the GUI.
SAMPLE Used for metering audio levels.

All messages sent and received are ASCII. Note that the level indicators and gain indicators are also in ASCII

Most parameters will send a REPORT command when they change. Thus, it is not necessary to constantly query parameters. The ANIUSB will send a REPORT command when any of these parameters change.

The character

“x”

in all of the following strings represents the channel of the ANIUSB and can be ASCII numbers 0 through 4 as in the following table

00 All channels
01-04 Dante Inputs
05 Analog Input
06 USB Input
07-08 Dante Outputs
09 Analog Output
10 USB Output
