Morse Code Reference STATUS LED CODES The orange Status LED can at times be used to convey information using Morse Code. Most notably, after disconnecting the Ethernet LAN connection the JNIOR will convey the last octet of its assigned IP address flashing each digit in Morse Code. An application can use the Java JANOS.morseStatusLED() method to output and repeat any message in Morse Code. This potentially can convey a complex error message in the absence of any display and remote access. MORSE CODE The following is the International Morse Code implemented by JNIOR. A dot is indicated by the asterisk '*' and a dash by a series of dashes '---'. The spaces between dots and dashes in the same letter are the same length as a dot; The spaces between letters are equal to 3 dots; And, the space between two words is equal to 7 dots. Phrases are repeated with a space equal to 15 dots after the last. Digits 1 * --- --- --- --- 6 --- * * * * 2 * * --- --- --- 7 --- --- * * * 3 * * * --- --- 8 --- --- --- * * 4 * * * * --- 9 --- --- --- --- * 5 * * * * * 0 --- --- --- --- --- Letters A * --- N --- * B --- * * * O --- --- --- C --- * --- * P * --- --- * D --- * * Q --- --- * --- E * R * --- * F * * --- * S * * * G --- --- * T --- H * * * * U * * --- I * * V * * * --- J * --- --- --- W * --- --- K --- * --- X --- * * --- L * --- * * Y --- * --- --- M --- --- Z --- --- * * NOTES Note the pattern used with digits. This is easily remembered and can help make the IP octet decoding useful. The length of code to represent letters is based roughly on the frequency of the occurrence of letters in English text. As such the E is a single dot and the letter T a single dash. The status LED on the back of the Control Panel PCB also uses Morse Code.
