thanks mary :rock: (doh!! no rock emoticon.....)
so i started looking at my program and thought hmmm..... this is way too messy...... so i dug up some references i used to get it working. heres a link to a pdf that has all the commands that i used with the sci2 interface
check the 3 pages from page 66.
however the serial interface itself had a certain protocol that you need to use so check this link
basically i just used a control byte of 0x83 (16bit DALI and monitor enabled) and i used the commands in the pdf from above. i think data high is for eDALI (extended version), data mid is for the value you are sending (ie dimming level, scene select, group number, fitting number etc.....) and data low is the command itself (00, 01, 02 etc... as per the motorola document).
i hope thats not too hard to put together. there are other commands like issuing addresses to fittings that i just didn't get into, easier to use the software that tridonic have.
but i know it works and works well. im sure with a groov, s1 and a sci2 you'll be lighting the skies from your web browser (or dimming them..... )
