News - Laser Tape Measure Hackin…
about 4 years ago
The trick is to send a command in the first place. You can’t reverse engineer them any other way than trial and error. You have to keep poking until something happens.
Anyway, I know many devices need to recieve a sequence prior to emitting the “?” to get them to talk to you in their diagnostic/set-up mode. e.g. an X-Port needs xxx.
At a higher level of hacking… the easiest way to make a LRS is to modulate the beam and look for the phase shift. The transmit and recieve pulse trains should be discoverable and intercepted to roll your own distance estimates.
What did you do to get it to send data out?
No public wish lists :(
