  • 0x00 = Disabled

  • 0x01 = Switch True

  • 0x11 = Switch False

  • 0xC1 = Virtual Switch True

  • 0x81 = Virtual Switch False


  • FAST Switch number, zero based.


  • 0x18 = Latched


  • PWM1 Max On-Time in Milliseconds (HEX) This is the initial kick time of the coil


  • Controls the pwm (power) of the initial kick (<PWM1_MAXONTIME). See PWM Byte Sequence Table for details.


  • Controls the pwm (power) that’s used to hold this coil in its latched mode until a new command comes in to do something else. See the PWM byte sequence table for details. If you just ant


  • Rest Time in Milliseconds (HEX)
