NI: Get node ID

FAST Serial Protocol: Overview & First Steps

This documentation section is about the FAST Serial Protocol (FSP) commands, which are the low-level commands a host computer sends to a FAST board. Most FAST Pinball makers do not need to know about these details, since the pinball game framework (such as the Mission Pinball Framework) handles this communication for you.

If you're writing your own game framework, read the overview of how FSP works and how to connect first.

The NI command returns the current node ID (an I/O board ID) for the FAST hardware.

Command:

NI:<NODE_ID><CR>

Returns:

NI:<NODE_ID>,<NODE_SERIALNUMBER>

Example:

NI:<CR>
NI:01,A6E616CE514C505136202020FF0E141D
