4.4.3. Console Port Configuration


The Console Port is used for connection to a local control device, such as a PC or terminal. To configure the Console Port, first go to the Port Selector Menu (Main Menu, item 22). Type 4 and press [Enter]. The Console Port Configuration Menu (Figure 4.6) will be displayed. The following options are available:

Communication Settings:

1                     Baud Rate: Selects the baud rate for this port; any standard rate from 1200 bps to 115.2K bps. (Default value is selected by Set-Up Switches 1, 2, and 3).

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

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

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


General Parameters:

11. Command Echo: Enables / Disables the command echo for this port. During set-up, it may be helpful to enable the Command Echo. This allows keystrokes sent to the NetLink unit to be displayed on your monitor. (Default = On).


12. Response Type: Determines how the port will react when command mode is activated. If "Display Menu" is selected, NetLink will immediately display the Main Menu when command mode is activated. If "Inhibit Menu" is selected, NetLink will not display the Main Menu until [Enter] is pressed. (Default = Inhibit Menu).

13. "Sure" Prompt: When irreversible commands (such as "Erase Data") are invoked at this port, the NetLink can display the "Sure" prompt to allow one last chance to verify that the command should be executed. (Default = On).

14. Command Timeout: Sets the Timeout value for this port. When the NetLink detects no command activity at this port for the specified timeout period, the port will exit command mode and disconnect. (Default =15 minutes).

15. Audit Trail: Enables or Disables the Audit Trail function. When enabled, NetLink will log command activity at this port. To review the command activity log, please refer to Section 16.1.7. (Default = Off).


Action Parameters:

16. Action Delay: When multiple alarm actions are directed to this port, the action delay determines how much time will elapse between actions. The Action Delay makes it easier to connect to the port, by providing a window when the port is not busy sending out actions. (Zero to 9999 Seconds; Default = 10 sec).

Output Parameters:

21. Output Mode: Selects the data output format for this port; ASCII Record, Binary Block, Xmodem, or ZModem. (Default = ASCII Record).

Note: When using Zmodem Output Mode, please refer to the cautions listed in Section 15.7.

22. Data on ^B01: If enabled, NetLink will immediately begin sending data when the data release command is invoked (Menu or ^B01). If disabled, NetLink will send the "READY" message, then wait for Command ^B02 before releasing data. (Default = On).

23. Hold "End Data": At the end of each data release session, NetLink will send the "End Data" message before returning to command mode. When this option is enabled, this port will wait for Command ^B02 before sending the End Data message. (Default = On).



24. Line # Tag: Inserts a Line Number at the beginning of each record or block released by this port. These Line Numbers are not stored in internal memory, but are added when data is released. (Default = Off).

25. Send Compressed: Determines whether this port will release data in space compressed or normal format. (Default = Off).

26. Auto Delete: When enabled, data will be automatically deleted from NetLink's memory at the end of each successful read. If the read operation is interrupted, data will not be deleted. (Default = Off).


Note: Before enabling the Auto Delete function, please refer to the cautions listed in Section 15.6.

Output Parameters (Binary Block Mode Only):

27. Transmit Attempts: (Binary Mode Only) Determines how many times this port will resend a block when there is a transmission problem, or the connection is lost. (Zero to 99 attempts; Default = 3).

28. Transmit Delay: (Binary Mode Only) Determines how long this port will wait between transmit attempts. If this value is set to Zero, binary data will be sent in a continuous block, without acknowledgment. (Zero to 99 seconds; Default = 5 seconds).

29. DLE Stuffing: (Binary Mode Only) Allows literal characters to be inserted into binary data released by this port. (Default = Off)
