|Applies to||All Zaber devices|
|Firmware Version||5.00 and up|
|Command Data||New Number|
|Reply Data||Device ID|
|Safe to retry?||Yes|
|Returns Current Position?||No|
|Summary||Assigns new numbers to all the devices in the order in which they are connected.|
This command is usually sent to device number 0. When it is, the command data is ignored and all devices will renumber. The device closest to the computer becomes device number 1. The next device becomes number 2 and so on.
If sent to a device number other than 0, then that device will reassign itself the device number in the command data. Valid device numbers are 1-99 for version 6.05, and 1-254 otherwise.
Note: Renumbering takes about 1/2 a second during which time the computer must not send any further data. The device number is stored in non-volatile memory so you can renumber once and not worry about issuing the renumber instruction again after each power-up.
