Data Frame format: <BOF><ID><LEN><DMX><EOF> <BOF> = 0x7e; <ID> = 0x06; <LEN> = 16-bit length of DMX field, LSB first. <DMX> = <start-code> [<RGB>].. <start-code> = 0; <RGB> = 3 byte RGB value for each light on the string <EOF> = 0xe7;
The MC will take the 24-bit RGB data, do a gamma correction (2.0) and 36-bit conversion on it, power-limit it to about 25ma, and send it to the LEDs.
You will get a reply frame back in the same format but with ID=241, and some LEN value followed by that many data bytes.
The data reply bytes have a number of fields, the important ones are:
Index Description 0-1 "3W" (signature bytes, always "3W") 2-5 model-name, "TLMC" for MC-v1 (standard), "TLM2" for MC-v2 (deluxe). 8 if MC-v1, this is number of lights set by user 8-9 if MC-v2, then (byte#8 << 8) + (byte#9) forms 16-bit number of lights set by user
