Pliant has announced new MicroCom XR firmware update, which includes the addition of a new Dual Listen feature.
Dual Listen gives users the ability to listen to two intercom channels simultaneously. This provides the benefit of monitoring communications on both the A and B channels, while also allowing users to switch between talking on either channels A or B independently.
In addition, this new feature is selectable on each pack in the system, giving the individual user a choice between Dual Listen and normal A or B channel communications.
To update the firmware in MicroCOM XR belt packs, the units must be sent to either Pliant (USA) or to AVL’s head office in Montreal. The firmware update requires a special cable and reprogramming software to finalize the update.
Email [email protected] if you wish to have units sent in to perform the upgrade.
