8.2. Command Response


When commands are sent to the APS-16, the unit can respond with either verbose (English Text) or terse messages (numeric / abbreviated). The default message type for all ports can be set to either terse or verbose using SetUp Switch Five.

After the APS-16 has been installed and configured, the Port Configuration (/P) command can be used to specify an individual response message format for each port. In addition to the Terse and Verbose response modes, the /P command can also select the Quiet Mode. When the Quiet Mode is selected, the port will not send messages in response to commands.

The table below summarizes the various response messages for both the Terse and Verbose modes.


* These verbose Response Messages include additional information which is not provided in the terse Response Message.
