Setting Up CLiKAPAD Equipment

CLiKAPAD Base Station V2 and V3

  1. Turn on computer and let it complete startup.
  2. Plug receiver into a USB port.
    Note: If the receiver is being used for the first time with the computer then a driver will need to be installed. See Installing Communications Drivers.
  3. Go to Vote & Report > Voting > Communication Setup > Communication Setup. The Communication Setup window displays.
  4. Click the Com Setup tab.
  5. Select the Receiver Type. You can tell whether you have a CLiKAPAD v2 or v3 base station from a white sticker on the base of the unit. (If there is no sticker it is probably a v2 base station).
  6. Click the Scan for Receivers button. When the CLiKAPAD receiver responds then the appropriate Com port will be marked as 'Yes Selected'. If there is no communication then a message will display.
  7. A dialog box will appear whose purpose is to optimize the response times of the keypads and base. The lower the number selected the better, but the number must be greater than the highest ID number of any keypad being used. For example, if the keypads being used were numbered 25-40 and 65-80, then the most efficient setting is 100. Adjust the slide control on the dialog box to an increment of 50 that represents the lowest number that is greater than the highest ID number of the keypads being used.
    Note: For Version 3 CLiKAPAD receivers. Two receivers may be installed simultaneously. This will not enable more keypads to be used for the Ballot session but may provide better quality communications in an environment where reception is poor, such as very large
    rooms or rooms with obstructions that affect the reception. 
  8. Although it is not a necessary step, it is possible to test the keypads.
  9. You can now Test the Keypads (optional).

  3. Connect the receiver to the serial port on the PC. (If your PC does not have a serial port, please contact Resolver Technical Support or Reply Systems regarding appropriate adaptors for your USB ports.)
  4. Turn on the computer and let it complete startup.
  5. Turn on the receiver and check that the LED light comes on.
