MotorMix Ping Input/Ping Echo messages


    Feb 24 2008 | 5:05 am
    Hopefully this isn't a silly question but does anyone know what the "Ping Input" and "Ping Echo" messages are used for on the MotorMix? I've searched the cmlabs.net site, and the C74 site but haven't found anything.
    In the developer guide, Ping Input (hex: 90-00-00, Received Messages section, pg:11) and Ping Echo (hex: 90-00-7F, Transmitted Messages section pg:10)
    Thanks

      This is a wild guess, but: if you send a Ping Input to the Motor-Mix, you probably get a Ping Echo as a reply. (It'll be a heartbeat signal, akin to running status.)

      That's it, good guess. Thanks a lot for the help!
