Abstract
This document defines a GQ GMC Geiger Counter Communication Protocol
to support communication between GMC Geiger Counter and a computer host
via serial port. The protocol allows to send data request command from a
computer host to a GQ GMC geiger counter.
**************************
Serial Port configuration
**************************
The serial port communication is based on a fixed baud rate.
Baud: 57600
Data bit: 8
Parity: None
Stop bit: 1
Control: None
**************************
Command format
**************************
A valid command start with ASCII '<' and ended with ASCII '>>'. Both
command and parameters are in between '<' and '>>'.
Command is a ASCII string. All parameters of command are true value in
hexadecimal.
Direction: All commands are initiated from computer(HOST).
**************************
Commands
**************************
1. Get hardware model and version
Command: <GETVER>>
Return: total 14 bytes ASCII chars from GQ GMC unit. It includes 7 bytes
hardware model and 7 bytes firmware version.
e.g.: GMC-300Re 2.10
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.0x, Re.2.10 or later
2. Get current CPM value
Command: <GETCPM>>
Return: A 16 bit unsigned integer is returned. In total 2 bytes data
return from GQ GMC unit. The first byte is MSB byte data and second byte is
LSB byte data.
e.g.: 00 1C the returned CPM is 28.
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.0x, Re.2.10 or later
3. Turn on the GQ GMC heartbeat
Note: This command enable the GQ GMC unit to send count per second data
to host every second automatically.
Command: <HEARTBEAT1>>
Return: A 16 bit unsigned integer is returned every second automatically.
Each data package consist of 2 bytes data from GQ GMC unit. The first byte
is MSB byte data and second byte is LSB byte data.
e.g.: 10 1C the returned 1 second count is 28. Only lowest 14 bits
are used for the valid data bit. The highest bit 15 and bit 14 are reserved
data bits.
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.10 or later
4. Turn off the GQ GMC heartbeat
Command: <HEARTBEAT0>>
Return: None
Firmware supported: Re.2.10 or later
5. Get battery voltage status
Command: <GETVOLT>>
Return: one byte voltage value of battery (X 10V)
e.g.: return 62(hex) is 9.8V
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.0x, Re.2.10 or later
6. Request history data from internal flash memory
Command: <SPIR[A2][A1][A0][L1][L0]>>
A2,A1,A0 are three bytes address data, from MSB to LSB. The L1,L0 are the
data length requested. L1 is high byte of 16 bit integer and L0 is low
byte.
The length normally not exceed 4096 bytes in each request.
Return: The history data in raw byte array.
Comment: The minimum address is 0, and maximum address value is the size of
the flash memory of the GQ GMC Geiger count. Check the user manual for
particular model flash size.
Firmware supported: GMC-300 Re.2.0x, Re.2.10 or later
7. Get configuration data
Command: <GETCFG>>
Return: The configuration data. Total 256 bytes will be returned.
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.10 or later
8. Erase all configuration data
Command: <ECFG>>
Return: 0xAA
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.10 or later
9. Write configuration data
Command: <WCFG[A0][D0]>>
A0 is the address and the D0 is the data byte(hex).
Return: 0xAA
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.10 or later
10. send a key
Command: <key[D0]>>
D0 is the key value from 0 to 3. It represents software key S1~S4.
Return: none
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.0x, Re.2.10 or later
Note: for Re.2.11 or later, each key can be a ASCII string:
<KEY0>>,<KEY1>>,<KEY2>>,<KEY3>>
11. get serial number
Command: <GETSERIAL>>
Return: serial number in 7 bytes.
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.11 or later
12. Power OFF
Command: <POWEROFF>>
Return: none
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.11 or later
13. Reload/Update/Refresh Configuration
Command: <CFGUPDATE>>
Return: 0xAA
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.20 or later
14. Set realtime clock year
command: <SETDATEYY[D0]>>
D0 is the year value in hexdecimal
Return: 0xAA
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.23 or later
15. Set realtime clock month
command: <SETDATEMM[D0]>>
D0 is the month value in hexdecimal
Return: 0xAA
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.23 or later
16. Set realtime clock day
command: <SETDATEDD[D0]>>
D0 is the day of the month value in hexdecimal
Return: 0xAA
Firmware supported: GMC-280, GMC-300 Re.2.23 or later
17. Set realtime clock hour
command: <SETTIMEHH[D0]>>
