CLCD is Serial LCD display module with I2c/RS232C interface.
On the back of the CLCD, a control board is attached. This control board receives I2C(CuNet) signals and prints to the CLCD.
The CLCD can also communicate using RS-232. There are two RS-232 connectors, one for 3-pin 5V level signals and the other for 4-pin +/- 12V level signals.
Use the CLCD DIP switches to set the I2C slave address. The 4th DIP switch is not used.
CuNET and RS-232 communication can both be used. If both are connected, please make sure when one of them is processing, the other is not.
The following is the CLCD command table:
|ESC 'C'||1B 43||2||15mS||Clear screen. A 15ms delay must be executed after this command.|
|ESC 'S'||1B 53||2||Cursor On (Default)|
|ESC 's'||1B 73||2||Cursor Off|
|ESC 'B'||1B 42||2||Backlight On (Default)|
|ESC 'b'||1B 62||2||Backlight Off|
|ESC 'H'||1B 48||2||Locate 0,0|
|ESC 'L' X Y||1B 4C xx yy||4||100 uS||Change the position of the cursor.|
|ESC 'D' 8byte||1B 44 Code 8 bytes||11||Character codes 8 through 15 are 8 custom characters that the user is free to create and use.|
|1||01||1||Move to beginning of row 1|
|2||02||1||Move to beginning of row 2|
|3||03||1||Move to beginning of row 3|
|4||04||1||Move to beginning of row 4|
data received is not a command, the CLCD will display it on the screen.
When using RS-232, the maximum baud rate settings for 12V(4-pin) levels is 38400. For TTL 5V levels (3-pin), a baud rate up to 115200 can be used.
The following is an example of code using the CB280 to connect to a CLCD module using the CUNET(I2C) protocol. When you execute this program, the CLCD will display incrementing numbers.
Const Device = CB280 Set Display 2,0,1,50 ' Set the SLAVE ADDRESS to 1 by manipulating the DIP switch. Dim i As Integer Delay 100 ' Delay for start up of CLCD Cls Delay 200 ' Delay for initializing and clearing CLCD CsrOff Locate 5,2 Print "Start!!!" Delay 500 Cls Delay 100 Do Incr i Locate 0,0 Print "COMFILE" Locate 1,3 Print "CUBLOC ", Dec i Delay 100 Loop
The following is an example code when using the CB220 to connect to the CLCD module through RS232 protocol. When you execute this program, the CLCD will display increment of numbers.
The baud rate of CLCD and SET DISPLAY command should match. Otherwise you will get garbage values on the LCD when trying to print to it.
Const Device = CB220 'Make sure to set all the DIP switches on 'the back of the CLCD to ON ‘Connect P11 (TX) of CB220 to RX pin of the CLCD. 'Set Display to CLCD/CVFD, 115200 bps, and 128 bytes of buffer Set Display 2,1,115200,128 Dim ct As Long ct=0 Do Locate 0,0 Print Dec ct Incr ct Loop
