PollCat III B

9.1.1. Data Release Command Options


Command ^B01 offers several options which can be used to release specific types of data, or manage and control the data release procedure. When Command ^B01 is invoked with options, the following format is used:

^B01[,type][,source][@n][,n] [Enter]


,source The ,source argument offers the following

options: ,PA Release records received via PBX Port A. ,PB Release records received via PBX Port B.

@n (Offset) Releases records starting with the "nth" record, where n is a positive, whole number. For example, if ^B01@234 is entered, PollCat III will release records, starting with the 234th record.

,n (Count) Releases records in groups of "n", where n is a positive, whole number. For example, if ^B01,555 is entered, PollCat III will release records in groups of 555.


•                      Square brackets are not included when the command option is entered. They are shown here in order to indicate an option.

•                      Each command option is preceded by a comma, with the exception of the Offset command (@n). The Offset command is preceded by the "@" character. Do not enter a comma before the "@" character.

•                      The ,clue and ,source options are not available in the Binary Block Mode.

•                      When the ASCII Block Mode or Binary Block Mode are selected, command options will release blocks instead of individual records.

•                      Once all specified records or blocks have been released, PollCat III will send the "END DATA" message to the polling device.


Options can also be combined to enable Command ^B01 to release data in a manner that combines several of the options described previously.


•                      ^B01,clue,n would release Alarm Records for the Alarm Clue named "clue" in groups of n records.

•                      ^B01,clue@n,n would release Alarm Records for the Alarm Clue named "clue" starting with the nth record. In addition, records would be released in groups of n.

•                      ^B01,clue,PA would release Alarm Records for the Alarm Clue named "clue" that were received via PBX Port A.


9.1.2. Other Polling Options

1                     Banner Message: To send the Banner Message (defined under Command ^B04), type ^B03 [Enter].

2                     I.D./Alarm Message: To send the I.D./Alarm Message (defined under command ^B14), type ^B13 [Enter].

3                     Remaining Memory Space: To send a message that lists PollCat III's remaining memory, type ^B21 [Enter].

4                     Set-Up Switches: To send a message that lists the current status of the Set-Up Switches, type ^B24 [Enter].

5                     Number of Stored Records: To send a message that lists the number of records in the current memory partition, invoke Command ^B20. The following options are available:


a) ^B20 [Enter] : Display total count of both Data and Alarm Records or blocks.

b) ^B20,D [Enter] : Display count for Data Records or blocks only.

b) ^B20,A [Enter] : Display count for Alarm Records or blocks only.

6. Binary Information Block: (Binary Block Mode only) To send a binary format information block which lists the ID/MSG, time/date, reason for callback, blocks used and bytes free, type ^B73 [Enter].

Responses to all of the above commands (except the Binary Information Block) end with <Carriage Return>, <Line Feed>.
