UDX Barco projector serial command issue for fading shutter

Hey there, first time caller long time listener

controlling a bunch of barco UDX pjs via telnet but can't seem to get the string correct to get the shutter to fade out. I have control, can power on/off, shutter on/off but designer wants the shutter to fade so it doesn't snap. ANY help would be MOST helpful.

Last string I tried was:



  • Hi, sorry I don't have your answer.

    But I'm interested. You do actually have a fade on this beamer ? What's the model ?

    I couldn't find any reference about a fade in the "RS232 and Network Command Catalog - Barco".


  • Hello @cwitt0324,

    Are you sure you can fade ? According to documentation, there is no such "fadeOut" value available.

    Did you contact Barco's support to learn more about this ?

    Best. Philippe

  • Hey

    Yes, I am able to do this via dmx but would rather just use serial commands. In the past, with other models I've been able to accomplish this so unclear why these UDXs are different

  • Hi there,

    fadeOut is not a valid command and there is a missing " } " at the end of your code apparently

    optics.shutter.target has only one parameter: "target"

    That parameter can take only two values : "open" or "closed"

    I'm trying to command an UDM from Millumin, especially to call back zoom and focus presets for different stage configurations, any one ever done that? Any idea how to get feedback informations from the Barco in Millumin?
