3.1.4. Computer Port Password (Sw7)
Set-Up Switch Seven enables or disables the Computer Port Password requirement. The
default password is SMDR (uppercase only). The Password can be redefined using Command
^B79. When the PollCat III is shipped from the factory, Switch 7 is set in the DOWN position
to disable the password requirement.
•When the password is enabled, the /^E command will be required in order to
access Command Mode, regardless of the position of Switch 6 (Direct Connect).
•When the Computer Port password is enabled, Command ^B09 or a loss of the
DTR line will cause the unit to disconnect from the polling device.

3.1.5. Power Up Default (Sw8)
The Power Up Default allows the user to reset communication parameters to default settings
without entering Command Mode.
Note: If you have changed Set-Up Switches 1 through 5, Switch 8 should be set in
the UP position (enable Power Up Default). This will allow default parameters
(selected by the Set-Up Switches) to take effect when PollCat III is powered up.
When the Power Up Default Option is enabled, PollCat III will reset the following parameters
if there is an interruption in power:
·PBX Port Communication Parameters: The Baud rate for both PBX Ports A and B will
be set according to the Set-Up Switches, rather than command selected parameters. Both
ports will be set for 7 bits, even parity, one stop bit.
·Computer Port Communication Parameters: The Baud rate will be set according to the
Set-Up Switches. The Port will also be set for 8 bits, no parity, one stop bit.
·Modem Port Communication Parameters: The Baud rate will be set to the highest rate
the modem will support. The Port will also be set for 8 bits, no parity, one stop bit.
·Password: The password will default to "SMDR".
CAUTION: If Set-Up Switch 8 is set in the UP position (enable Power Up
Default), and there is a loss of power to the unit, all command selected port
settings will be lost.
When the Power Up Default is disabled, and there is an interruption in power, all parameters
will remain in their previously defined status.
