7.    How to make CROSS in the correct communicating status

To get a correct communication for the CROSS, user must keep in mind the below 4 tips:

      The COM port of software must be correctly set.

      The Baud rate of software must be set exactly same as the inside device of CROSS.

      LED address of software must be set exactly same as the inside device of CROSS.

      The Baud rate of software and the inside device of CROSS must be 9600, if use wireless transmitter.

When running the software, it will automatically search CROSS and get Baud rate, COM port and LED address:


The system parameters of a new CROSS are defaulted as:

Communication mode: wire

Baud rate: 115200



These communication parameters will be shown at bottom of the software. User can also get them by using t░Searcht▒ and t░Crosst▒ in main menu as below:

Attention: when use wire communication, user can modify the Baud rate and LED address of CROSS by entering into t░Cross Parametert▒ under the main menu t░Controlt▒ as following:

Select a Baud rate and LED address user needs and click t░Sett▒ to confirm.


1, If the setting is successfully sent, CROSS will display messages from the first program file.

2, User must use wire communication to modify the communication setting.

If the wire communication is correct, user can modify the communication mode to wireless as following:

Select the Baud rate 9600:

Open the control box of CROSS, take off the connection of wire communication and insert connection of wireless communication into control card.

Set the COM port, Baud rate and LED address of the CROSS.

User can send messages under the wireless communication (specification will be found in Part 8).

Usually wireless transmitting speed is 5 to 10 times slower than wire communication.

If the wireless transmitting is correct, user can modify the communication mode to wire communication as following:

Open the control box of CROSS, take off the connection of wireless transmitter and insert connection of wire communication into control card.

Set the COM port, Baud rate and LED address of the CROSS(set the parameters for wireless as before ):

Modify the Baud rate to 115200(if the wire is too long, it can be 57600:

After above setting, user can send messages under the wire communication mode.

8.      How to set up the USB wireless transmitter & how to use it

USB wireless transmitter specifications:

      Transmitting distance 200m; FSK, GFSK modulate mode
