GPIO properties

Below are the available gpio properties are described. To each gpio needs to be accessed by their Property followed by the target in or output [ ] square brackets

gpio.input.function[1] = gpio.input.function.talk 

// sets the function of the first GPI to talk

gpio.input.function

Property for GPI input function. needs to be called with an [index] and can be assigned with one of its values.

value name represents the gpi input function
gpio.input.function.coughmute Cough mute
gpio.input.function.answerreply Answer / reply
gpio.input.function.none No function
gpio.input.function.talk Talk
gpio.input.function.call Call
gpio.input.function.cueatt Cue attention
gpio.input.function.cuego Cue GO
gpio.input.function.cueclear Cue clear
gpio.input.function.mickill Mic kill
gpio.input.function.gpiocontrol gpio control

gpio.input.value

Property for GPI input channel. needs to be called with an [index] and can be assigned with any of the available regular channels. By default 1 - 32, and 24 added for each connected extension.

gpio.input.normally

Property for GPI normal state. needs to be called with an [index] and can be assigned with one of its values.

value name represents the gpi normal state
gpio.input.normally.closed normally closed
gpio.input.normally.open normally open

gpio.input

Property to read the current GPI state. needs to be called with an [index] and has one of its values.

value name represents the GPI state
gpio.input.on the GPI is active
gpio.input.off the GPI is not active

gpio.output.function

Property for GPO function. needs to be called with an [index] and can be assigned with one of its values.

value name represents the GPO function
gpio.output.function.none no function
gpio.output.function.channelactive Channel Active
gpio.output.function.channelvox Channel VOX
gpio.output.function.call Call
gpio.output.function.alert Allert Call
gpio.output.function.talkenabled Talk enabled
gpio.output.function.gpiocontrol Gpio Control

gpio.output.value

Property for GPI output channel. needs to be called with an [index] and can be assigned with any of the available regular channels. By default 1 - 32, and 24 added for each connected extension.

gpio.output.normally

Property for GPO normal state. needs to be called with an [index] and can be assigned with one of its values.

value name represents the gpo normal state
gpio.output.normally.closed normally closed
gpio.output.normally.open normally open

gpio.output

Property to override the current GPO state needs to be called with an [index] and can be assigned one of its values

value name sets the gpo state
gpio.output.on overrides the current GPO state to ON not normally state
gpio.output.off overrides the current GPO state to OFF normally state
gpio.output.release release from the script to the current Green-GO state

Beacon GPI

gpi.bcn

property for the GPI inputs on the USB data pair connection of the beacon. needs to be addressed with the index of the gpi in [] square brackets, can be 1 or 2 or with the predefined values

index name description
define gpi.bcn.white 1 - data +
define gpi.bcn.green 2 - data -

the value of a GPI can be read and can have the following values.

value description
gpi.bcn.closed the contact is closed
gpi.bcn.open the contact is open

a closed contact is switched to the USB ground

event gpi.bcn[gpi.bcn.2]
    if gpi.bcn[gpi.bcn.2] == gpi.bcn.closed
        // action if contact is closed
    else   
        // action if contact is opened
    end
end
