9.1.7 Call-in and Call-out

The CNI4 can receive host-initiated calls (Call-out) or provide instrument-initiated calls (Call-in). Call-in
type calls can be the result of an instrument Alarm, a Scheduled call, or by 'Forcing-a-call' by swiping a
magnet next to the reed switch (figure below). The 'Force-a-call' function can only be used if item 333
(Call-In Trigger) is set to Alarm Call-in. If instrument-initiated calls fail to connect to a host system,
primary and secondary call-in retries are activated in an effort to complete the call-in process.
The CNI4 can receive Call-outs by configuring the Cloud Link 4G Modem to function in
MiWireless mode, and in this scenario the Cloud Link 4G Modem must be connected to external power

Codes (0-3) to select the activity that will cause the
instrument to make a call into a host system.
Date of the next scheduled call-in. When used, this
parameter is normally incremented to the next
calendar date by the host data collection computer
so that a future call-in will occur.
Time of the next scheduled call-in. When used, this
parameter is normally set once and then reused for
the next day's call-in. However, the data collection
computer might make slight adjustments to
optimize call throughput if scheduling a large
number of units.
Codes (0-3) to select the retry strategy that is to be
implemented by the instrument based on the
