Micro Maestro 6 serial protocol and GetErrors

I have a micro maestro 6 configured for serial control. Occasionally during debuging controller code, I have tripped a serial error. Not suprising. However, when I then send the maestro a GetErrors command, the red LED stays lit. Are the errors really being cleard and how do I extinguish the LED?

Hello, Rick.

The errors should really be cleared. How are you sending the Get Errors command? Did you try just sending a single byte, 0xA1? Maybe your Get Errors command isn’t working because the Maestro is in the middle of a Mini SSC command. If that is the case, one way to guarantee that you clear the errors would be to send three bytes:

0x00 0x00 0xA1
