New functionality has been added so that the AVW200 series device can control multiplexers via SDI-12 commands. This allows multiplexers to be connected directly to the AVW200 for SDI-12 measurement scenarios instead of being connected to the Datalogger or other controller. SDI-12 extended commands are used to set the absolute channel address of the multiplexer. The commands are aXMUXaa,ttt! or aXCMUXaa,ttt! (CRC check), where aa is the channel address and ttt is a timeout for how long the multiplexer will remain on and hold the address specified. An address of zero or timeout of zero will reset the multiplexer and zero any previous timeout setting. The timeout can also be updated by sending a new aX! command and selecting a new channel and timeout. In this way, a zero in-between commands isn't required.
