Can anyone state the protocol? Does the inner pin have to be grounded rel to coax, or held at a voltage? If so for how long?

It's just switch contacts.  When the shutter is tripped the two leads (inner and outer) of the PC cord are connected together into a direct connection with each other.

Hope that makes sense.
