Constructor Detail

PFLink

public PFLink(I2CPort _Port,
              int address)

PFLink

public PFLink(I2CPort _Port)
Method Detail

initialize

public void initialize(byte _Range)
Should be called once to set up the NRLink for usage in the program

Parameters:
_Range - Either NR_RANGE_SHORT or NR_RANGE_LONG, which uses more power

runCommand

public int runCommand(int command)
Executes a command

Parameters:
command -
Returns:
the status (zero = success)

installMacro

public void installMacro(int _Address,
                         byte[] _Macro)
Installs a macro into the NRLink You really should call this only once for a new NRLink since it stores them in EEPROM even if turned of. And I have no idea how often you can overwrite them before they burn out...

Parameters:
_Address - The address up from 0x40 for the macro
_Macro - The macro

installDefaultMacros

public void installDefaultMacros()
Installs the macro definitions used by this class. You really should call this only once for a new NRLink since it stores them in EEPROM even if turned of. And I have no idea how often you can overwrite them before they burn out...


runMacro

public void runMacro(int _Address)
Runs a macro which has been previously installed on the NRLink.

Parameters:
_Address - The address of the macro, one of the MOTOR_* for a single motor or one of the COMBO_* macros which work on both motors simultaneously
