4.1.2.3. Set Communication Parameters

 

The default settings for the Computer Port and Modem Port are 8 bits, no parity, one stop bit. The default settings for PBX Ports A and B are 7 bits, even parity, one stop bit. If your application involves compatibility with PollCat II units, you may wish to use Commands ^B60 and ^B61 (rather than the procedure described here) to set parity for the Computer Port and PBX Ports. Please refer to Section 10 for information on Commands ^B60 and ^B61.

If necessary, enter the Command Mode and use the following procedure to set the baud rate, parity, data bits, and stop bits to match the device connected to each port.

To set communication parameters, proceed as follows:

1. Set Modem Port Communication Parameters: Invoke Command ^B90 using following format.

^B90,baudrate,parity,databits,stopbits [Enter]

 

2. Set Computer Port Communication Parameters: Invoke Command ^B91 using the following format.

^B91,baudrate,parity,databits,stopbits [Enter]

Where: baudrate Can be 300, 600, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600,

19200, or 38400. Only the first two characters must be specified. If an asterisk (*) is entered, the baud rate specified by Set-Up Switches 1 through 3 is used.

parity Can be None (N), Odd (O), or Even (E) databits Can be7or8. stopbits Can be1or2.

3. Set Communication Parameters for PBX Ports A and B: Use Command ^B92 for PBX Port A, and Command ^B93 for PBX Port B. Commands ^B92 and ^B93 use the format described below. Although the example shows Command ^B92, this same format also applies to Command ^B93.

^B92,baudrate,parity,databits,stopbits [Enter]

 

4. Enable/Disable XON/XOFF Function: The XON/XOFF function can control the flow of data from the PBX. For PBX switches that require data flow control, PollCat III can send an XOFF when memory is 98% full, and an XON when more data can be accepted.

a) To enable XON/XOFF, type ^B57,1 [Enter].

b) To disable XON/XOFF (Default), type ^B57,2 [Enter].

Caution: Some PBX switches may lockup when the XON/XOFF function is used. Other types of PBX's will not respond to XON/XOFF commands. Please consult your PBX user's guide before attempting to use the XON/XOFF function.
