Data protocol
IR signal sending protocol, last updated on 10.10.2012.
The IR signal sending protocol used for the 4th generation LASERWAR equipment is based on MilesTag II Data Protocol Consequently, in the process of development of the 4th generation equipment we aimed to ensure that it is fully compatible with the equipment that uses the international MILES2 protocol. Nevertheless, the expanded LASERWAR protocol has additional commands – they are highlighted in blue.
Shot:
Header (an impulse of 2400 microseconds) + 14 data bits (the first bit of a shot always equals zero)
See the picture below for a graphic presentation of a shot
