Using a Third-Party Control System

The microphone receives logic commands over the network. Many parameters controlled through the web application can be controlled through a third party control system, using the appropriate command string.

Common applications:

  • Mute
  • LED color and behavior
  • Loading presets
  • Adjusting levels

A complete list of command strings is available in the device help or from www.shure.com.

MXA910 Microflex®Advance™ 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 MXA910 responds with a REPORT string

SET

Changes the status of a parameter. After the AMX/Crestron sends a SET command, the MXA910 will respond with a REPORT string to indicate the new value of the parameter.

REP

When the MXA910 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 device when a parameter is changed on the MXA910 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 MXA910 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 MXA910 and can be ASCII numbers 0 through 9 as in the following table.

0 All channels
1 through 8 Individual channels
