8. Saving PollCat III Parameters


After PollCat III has been configured, parameters can be saved to an ASCII text file using the File Mode in ProComm, or another communications program. Later, If the configuration is accidentally altered or deleted, the saved parameters can be uploaded to automatically re-configure the unit without the need to manually enter each parameter.

The ASCII file with the saved parameters can also be uploaded to other PollCat III units. This allows rapid set-up when a number of units will be configured with the same parameters. The ^B99 command will save the parameters listed in Table 8.1 below.
