Command protocol

I would like to control you USB focus box from my own software.
Is there a document showing the command protocol to it?

Thanks,
William

You are correct, the FCUSB is a pure USB device, not mapped as a serial port. If you would still like to use the FCUSB and are writing your own software, there is DLL available for it. Let me know if you are interested.
