Function Command String (FCS / MLB) for SMP Controllers

Function Command String (FCS / MLB) for SMP Controllers

Sheffield SMP controllers accept not only traditional commands from CMM-Manager program execution but also a special command set unique to Sheffield SMP controllers.  It is possible to create aubile, warnings, pause program execution, toggle Joystick / Auto Mode, etc. by sending FLB / FCS commands to controller during program execution.  

From the Program Ribbon Tab, press the Function Command String button, then type FLB / FCS command into the text entry, then click OK.  When program runs, this FCS will be executed.  See attached FLB / FCS reference for details on available FCS commands.
