LED Modes

Some devices feature either a RGB LED and/or a 4-LED ramp.

All the LEDs have a so-called 'Mode' parameter which define their behaviour: solid, blinking or flashing. All the supported behaviours are listed in the table below.

"Special" modes

00 OFF
01 Solid ON
0F "Breathing" Available on RGB LED only

"Blinking and flashing" modes

Values for the "blinking or flashing" modes are constructed as the aggregation of two 4-bit values.

  • The high-order nibble (1x to Bx) codes the frequency,
  • The low-order nibble (x0 to xE) codes the pattern.

###Frequency

Mode's high-order nibble Frequency Period
1x 0.25 Hz 4 s
2x 0.50 Hz 2 s
3x 1 Hz 1 s
4x 2 Hz 500 ms
5x 3 Hz 333 ms
6x 4 Hz 250 ms
7x 5 Hz 200 ms
8x 6.66 Hz 150 ms
9x 10 Hz 100 ms
Ax 15 Hz 66.6 ms
Bx 20 Hz 50 ms
