4.4.1. PBX Port A and PBX Port B


From the Port Selector Menu, type 1 (for PBX Port A) or 2 (for PBX Port B) and then press [Enter]. Both configuration menus include the following items:


Communication Settings:

1                     Baud Rate: Selects the baud rate for this port. Any standard rate from 1200 bps to 115.2K bps. (Default values are selected by Set-Up Switches 4 and 5).

2                     Bits/Parity: Selects Bits/Parity for this port; 8-None, 7-Even, 7-Odd, or 7-None. (Default = 7-Even).

3                     Stop Bits: Selects stop bits for this port. (Default = 1).

4                     Handshake Mode: Selects flow control for this port; XON/XOFF, RTS/CTS, both, or None. (Default = None).


Input Parameters:

11. Time/Date Stamp: The date stamp can be inserted at the beginning of each record received by this port. This prompt is used to disable the function, or select the short format or long format. The short format (PollCat III Compatible) lists Month, Date, Hour and Minute; the long format lists Month, Date, Year, Hour, Minute, and Second. (Default = Off).

12. Serial Number Stamp: Inserts a six digit number at the beginning of records received by this port. (Default = Off).

13. Strip Non-Printables: Conserves memory by excluding characters such as Nuls and Dels. (Default = On).

14. End Character: Defines the End-of-Record (EOR) character that NetLink expects to see at the end of each record received at this port. (Default = ^J (Line Feed)).

15. Alarm Filter: Enables/disables the Alarm Filter and selects the Alarm Filter Format for this port. The Alarm Filter monitors data, and notifies the user when specific types of data are detected. For more information, please refer to Section 8. (Default = Off).



16. Store Alarm Data: Determines where NetLink will store alarm data received via this port. Alarm Records can be stored in the Alarm File, the Standard (non-alarm) File, or both files. For more information, please refer to Section 15.1.1. (Default = Alarm)

17. Data Filter: Enables/disables the Data Filter and selects the Data Filter Format used by this port. The Data Filter conserves memory and cuts polling time by excluding records not needed for your application. For more information, please refer to Section 7. (Default = Off).

18. PBX Inactivity Alarm: Enables/disables the PBX Inactivity Alarm and selects the format for this port. The inactivity alarm monitors the flow of data from the PBX and notifies the user if the flow stops. For further instructions, please refer to Section 9. (Default = Off).
