8.1. B99 Command Options


Command ^B99 can be invoked with a variety of different options. These options are designed to streamline the upload/download process by sending only specific parameters, and/or arranging data in a manner where several parameters are combined in a single, continuous line.


•                      When parameters are saved to an ASCII file, the "^A" character is substituted for the "^B" character. If the ASCII file is uploaded to the PollCat III, the ^A character allows commands to be executed without echoing back to the polling device.

•                      With the exception of options ^B99,* and ^B99 (plain), each set of parameters will be listed in a single, continuous line, terminated by <CR><LF>.

•                      Alarm Filter Parameters (defined using Command ^B81) will only be saved when options ^B99,* and ^B99 (plain) are invoked. Options ^B99,1 through ^B99,9 will not include Alarm Filter Parameters.


Command ^B99 offers the following options:

^B99 All Parameters, Line by Line: Downloads all parameters specified in Table 8.1. Each parameter is listed on a separate line, terminated by <CR><LF>.

^B99,* All Parameters, Condensed: Downloads all parameters specified in Table 8.1. In order to stream­line the upload/download process, several parameters are included on each line. Each line is terminated by <CR><LF>.
