When you select the WMT700 profile, you can operate WMT700 with these commands. In the command descriptions, <CR> is an ASCII carriage return control character and <LF> is an ASCII line feed control character. You can send commands at any speed. The command is executed when end-of-line character is received.

Each measurement mode command must start with the user-configurable WMT700 address. It can be any string of printable ASCII characters with the maximum length of 30 characters. Characters <CR>, <LF>, and $ are not allowed. If you use 0 as the address in the command, WMT700 responds regardless of the configured address.

If you have enabled response for parameter setting (messages parameter is set to 1), WMT700 responds to an invalid command with an error message.
