- STOP, RUN, or POLL
- In STOP mode: outputting only when command is issued, any command can be used.
- In RUN mode: outputting automatically, only command S can be used.
- In POLL mode: outputting only when command is issued, any command can be used after the line has been opened using the OPEN command.
Use the SMODE command to show or set the serial interface mode. Note that a separate SAVE command is not needed to store the new serial interface mode setting.
The polling mode can be used when more than one module is connected to one serial bus. When set to POLL state, the modules communicate one at a time when the specific module address is called on the serial line. See descriptions of the commands ADDR (Set Module Address) and OPEN (Connecting to the Module in POLL Mode).
