4. Program Set-Up
This Section describes how to configure the PollCat III firmware to fit your specific
application. In addition, this Section also describes many of PollCat III's optional features, and
explains how they can be used to maximize the efficiency of your installation.
Although PollCat III provides a substantial assortment of optional program features, it is not
necessary to include all of these features in the configuration of your system. When the unit is
shipped from the factory, all options are set to the defaults listed in Section 10. These defaults
are designed to fit the needs of most call accounting applications. However, it is often helpful
to reconfigure certain options in order to better adapt the PollCat III for a specific application.
Note that Command ^B16 can be invoked at any time to display the Status Screen in order to
determine the current state of any command.
