^B00 Set/Reset Memory Partition

Sets or releases the memory partition for your command port.

Notes:

•                      If this command does not include an argument, the partition will be set to include all data by default.

•                      The Release partition argument (R) cannot be combined with other arguments.

•                      The ^B00 command line can specify two source ports (e.g. ^B00,PA,PB), but cannot specify two data types.

•                      Square brackets are not included in the command line. They are shown here to indicate an option.

 

Command ^B00 uses one of the following formats:

^B00[,type][,source] [Enter] or ^B00[,R] [Enter]

Where:

,type Data Type: Offers the following options: ,D or ,STD Standard (Non-Alarm) Records. ,A1 or ,A Records that match Alarm Filter 1. ,A2 Records that match Alarm Filter 2. ,ALM Include All Alarm Records. (Not Specified) Include all data.

,source Source Port: Offers the following options: ,PA Records received via PBX Port A. ,PB Records received via PBX Port B. ,PX Records received via the AUX Port. (Not Specified) Records from all three ports.

,R Release Data Partition: The "R" option cannot be combined with other ^B00 arguments.

Examples:

^B00,D Set partition to include all records that did not match an Alarm Clue, regardless of the Input Port that received them.

^B00,A1,PX Include records that match Alarm Filter 1, and were received via the AUX Port. ^B00,R Release the current data partition.

Corresponding Menu Function: Buffer Functions, Items 2 and 3.

^B01 Enter Data Release Mode

Releases data collected from the PBX.

Notes:

•                      When data is released in groups of "n" records (e.g., ^B01,30), command ^B02 is sent to release the next group.

•                      To exit Data Release Mode and return to command mode, type ^B30 [Enter].

•                      If the XON/XOFF function is enabled at the appropriate port, NetLink will respond to XON/XOFF flow control codes during data release mode.

•                      If "Data on ^B01" is disabled, and ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "n" records, a ^B02 is required in order to release the first group.

•                      If "Hold End Data" is enabled, a ^B02 is required in order to release the End Data message.

 

Command Options:

When Command ^B01 is invoked, the following format is used:

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

Where:

,type Data Type: Offers the following options: ,D or ,STD Standard (Non-Alarm) Records. ,A or ,A1 Records for Alarm Filter 1. ,A2 Records for Alarm Filter 2. ,ALM Records for both Alarm Filters. ,"clue" Records for clue only. The clue

name must be enclosed in quotes.

,source Source Port: Offers the following options: ,PA Records received via PBX Port A. ,PB Records received via PBX Port B. ,PX Records received via AUX Port.

@n Offset: Data release starts with the "nth" record. For example, ^B01@50 will start with the 50th record. If a negative offset value is entered, NetLink will determine the starting point by counting backwards from the end of the current partition.

,n Count: Releases records in groups of "n", where n is a positive, whole number.

^B01 Data Release Mode (Continued)

Notes:

•                      If both Alarm Filters include a clue with the same name, the command must specify the desired filter. For example, if Alarm Filters 1 and 2 both include a clue named TEST,to retrieve data from filter 1, the command line would read ^B01,A1,"TEST".

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

•                      When Binary Block Mode is used, commands will release blocks instead of individual records.

•                      Square brackets are not included in the command line. They are shown here to indicate an option.

 

Options can also be combined. For example, ^B01,"clue",n will release records for clue in groups of n records or blocks.

Corresponding Menu Function: Main Menu, Item 2.

^B02 Send Next Data

When Command ^B01,n is invoked, NetLink will release a group of "n" records or blocks and then pause. To display the next group, type ^B02 [Enter]. Command ^B02 is only valid in Data Release Mode and cannot be used in an Auto Execute string.

Notes:

•                      If "Data on ^B01" is disabled, a ^B02 is required in order to release the first group of records.

•                      If "Hold End Data" is enabled, a ^B02 is required in order to release the End Data message.

 

^B03 Display Site ID

Displays the user-defined Site ID message. Type ^B03 [Enter]. Corresponding Menu Function: Status Displays, Item 3.

^B04 Define Site ID

(Supervisor Mode Only) Defines a Site ID Message up to 32 characters long. Type ^B04,text and press [Enter] (where "text" is the desired Site ID). The Site ID cannot include quotes or ASCII control characters

(e.g. STX, ETX). If the Site ID begins with an underscore character ("_"), upon login the message will be displayed after the command prompt. To clear the Site ID, type ^B04,[Space] and press [Enter].

Notes:

•                      The "_" character will not appear in the displayed Site ID Message.

•                      If the Console Port Password is disabled (Sw7=Down), the Site ID Message will not be displayed when the unit is contacted via the Console Port.

 

^B05 Define End-of-Record Character

(Supervisor Mode Only) Redefines the End-of-Record (EOR) character that NetLink expects to see at the end of each record (Default=^J). Command ^B05 uses the following format:

 

Corresponding Menu Function: Port Configuration menus (PBX Port A, PBX Port B, AUX Port), Item 14.

^B06 Re-send Last Data

This command is used in the event of a transmission error during the previous read. Command ^B06 will only function when ^B01,n is invoked, or when the Record Count option (Read Session Parameters) is used. To re-send data, type ^B06 [Enter].

^B07 Continuous Binary Block Read

Initiates a continuous binary block read, regardless of the output mode setting. Blocks are sent continuously, without acknowledgment, and cannot be retransmitted during the current read session. When transmitting via modem, error correction must be enabled. A DOS program is available to convert binary data to ASCII. The following

 

When command ^B07 is invoked, the following format is used:

^B07[,type][,source][@n]

Where:

,type Data Type: Offers the following options: ,D or ,STD Standard (Non-Alarm) Records. ,A or ,A1 Records for Alarm Filter 1. ,A2 Records for Alarm Filter 2 only. ,ALM Records for both Alarm Filters. ,"clue" Alarm Records for clue only. Note that

the clue name must be enclosed in quotes.

,source Source Port: Offers the following options: ,PA Records received via PBX Port A. ,PB Records received via PBX Port B. ,PX Records received via AUX Port.

@n Offset: Releases records starting with the "nth" record. For example, if ^B01@234 is entered, NetLink will start with the 234th record. If a negative offset value is entered, NetLink will determine the starting point by counting backwards from the end of the current partition.

CAUTION: Do not invoke Command ^B07 while the Auto Delete option is enabled. If ^B07 is invoked with Auto Delete enabled, NetLink will erase data without waiting for the polling device to acknowledge reception.

^B07 Continuous Binary Block Read (Continued)

Notes:

•                      To exit Continuous Binary Block Read and return to Command Mode, type ^B30 [Enter].

•                      If both Alarm Filters include an identical clue name, the command must specify the desired filter. For example, if Alarm Filters 1 and 2 both include a clue named TEST,to retrieve data from filter 1, the command line would read ^B07,A1,"TEST".

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

•                      While Continuous Binary Block Read is active, NetLink will respond to XON/XOFF flow control codes.

•                      Square brackets are not included in the command line. They are shown here to indicate an option.

 

Options can also be combined. For example, ^B07,PA,D will release all records received via PBX Port A, that did not match an Alarm Filter.
