Exigo Controller DSP Fault Result in Missing Audio

In the unlikely situation of the A-Controller DSP processor stops working, audio from messages and alarm generator will be missing.
This situation is now avoided by lowering priority of the A-controller when DSP fault detected. This will assure usage of B-controller audio in the system.

Known issues

Fault indication - It is possible to change from "or" to "and" between fields, but not inside one field

Tick tone will not be played out on access panels which is part of a zone

SIP devices for integration can only have directory numbers with numbers. Alphanumeric numbers are not supported

Configurable Cancel Tone on Live Speech

New EMT system setting for turning off the audible cancel tone played out in the Panel after live speech. Default setting is ON.

Use IP Speaker as AVC Source

It is now possible to use AVC Source Device as AVC Receiver. This makes it possible to connect a microphone to an IP Speaker and use this as AVC Source Device.

ENA2100-AC was missing a critical high pass filter

This could lead to destroying the class-d modules with audio in low frequencies

Known issues

Bugfixes and improvements

SIP Trunk Stations Should Only Use Trunk License

SIP trunk stations now allocate SIP trunk license when in call. Previously each configured SIP trunk station required a SIP station license.
  • For customers using SIP trunk stations, previously used SIP station licenses will not be used after upgrade.
  • The maximum number of simultaneous SIP trunk stations in call, will relate to the number of SIP trunk licenses in the system.
Please consult Customer Service if SIP station licenses needed to be converted to SIP trunk licenses.

Lamp test would adversly affect time-limited blinking leds

LED's which were blinking (example due to a live speech timeout) would lock and continue to blink after the lamp test was finished.

Unicast was missing call information related to volume settings

Volume settings would not work on Exigo amplifiers set to receive unicast from PSC

SNMPv2c getBulkrequest issues fixed

SNMP now correctly handles bulk requests with multiple OID which goes beyond one OID. This would previously crash the SNMP process and restart the device.

Issue related to multiple call escalations

Fixed an issue where multiple call escalation IDs on a call with always include zones and clear call escalation on first activity would not work correctly in combination.

Fixed issue with HD-Mode where audio would leak between two channels on one amplifier

Exigo systems under high load could in some cases send PA messages in some additional zones for a few seconds.

VAD configured on a line input will no longer trigger "read ip adress" if a control input is shorted

Fixed an issue where configured VAD would cause the amplifier to read its IP-address if the amplifier was started before the PSC was ready.

VAD will now continue to work after a reboot

VAD stopped working after a reboot due to a mismatch in configuration

ReCall from SIP trunk

Activating the ReCall function from a SIP trunk using codec G711, did not play out the recorded message. Fixed.

ZAP can now be used to set volume levels on all amplifiers and kits

Volume override can now be used correctly with advanced volume control

Volume override can now be used both on channels and zones to force max volume if an activity has a priority above a configured level

Fixed memory leak on control inputs with external fault

Device with a external fault on a control input would reboot after around 9000 activations due to a memory leak in libstpanels json handling.

Option "Replace" on call type Live Speech

It is now possible to use the option Replace on call type Live Speech.

Known issues

Fault indication - It is possible to change from "or" to "and" between fields, but not inside one field

Tick tone will not be played out on access panels which is part of a zone

SIP devices for integration can only have directory numbers with numbers. Alphanumeric numbers are not supported

The same fault ID can not be used on different buttons on an access panel - This will result in wrong LED behavior

Flowire - For turning of monitoring of flowire devices completly a full chilly restart must be done

EMT - Only one dialog box can be open if more than one EMT version is open

New Features

IP-LCM support in Alphacom / Pulse / SIP

IP-LCM is now supported in Exigo systems. This device have:
  • 8 robust high power relays
  • 8 robust inputs
  • Powered via the TKIS-2 kit with PoE, PoE inject or external power supply
  • All connections and features from the TKIS-2 kit available

Exigo systems can now be integrated with Pulse systems

Using the SIP interface on Exigo systems allows for integration both ways to pulse systems

EMT - Scan IP range for devices now available

New tool in Operation view to scan an IP range for Exigo devices. From the list of discovered devices it is possible to send a command to the device to make the fault led blink (works for ENA, Access Panel and SSC devices).
By default, the fault led will blink 4 times, 2 blinks pr second. The number of blinks and blink rate can be changed in Options -> Configuration Options.
From the list of discovered devices it is also possible to open the device's Web Configuration page in the default browser.

SNMP traps are now supported by all Exigo devices

SNMP traps for faults are now supported by all Exigo devices. Configuration is done via EMT.

Exigo now supports distributed automatic volume controllers

Distributed Automatic Volume Controllers (dAVC) is TKIS-2 kits which measures background noise in an area and can adjust the volume settings for an amplifier or IP speaker so that the audio is audible above the noise.
  • DAVC devices is monitored as other devices in the Exigo system.
  • Zones with dAVC devices can have "volume override" functionality. Activities with priorities above this threshold will use full volume efficiently ignore background noise adjustments.
  • DAVC Control of zone can be based on: highest, average or average mid. Both average require at least four dAVC devices.
  • Disable AVC function can be used to selectively disable dAVC functionality per zone.
  • Adjustment mode can be positive or negative between two thresholds.
  • Advanced options where attack rate, decay rate, hysteresis and lock out time are available

ENA2100-AC is now supported in Exigo systems

  • Advanced line monitoring and Lets supported
  • Hardware audio bypass supported
  • 2 control outputs with 200mA@24Vdc each
  • 2 control inputs
  • Supported in Exigo mode and Alphacom systems

New ZAP rpcs available for remote integration

  • Restart of Class-D module
  • Identification of devices by toggling fault led
  • Remote toggling of control outputs

Audio bypass is now supported on all Exigo devices

Bypass will route audio directly from the line input to both audio output channels based on the following configuration choices:
  • Always on: This allows the amplifier to operate standalone mode without ESC1 or Alphacom
  • Idle: This allows the amplifier to have bypass activated when no digital audio is present.
  • No connection: This allows the amplifier to activate bypass if it loose connection to ESC1 or Alphacom
  • Always off: This is default for Exigo amplifiers and audio bypass will never be activated
ENA2100-AC: Hardware bypass available for instant forwarding
ENA2200, ENA2400-DC, ENA2400-AC: Audio bypass available after software is up

Zone select can now deselect when activities are started or stopped

This gives more options to how zone select should behave in relation to activities started from the access panels

Adjustable delay of missing devices

It is now possible on a per device level to adjust a delay before the device is reported missing. Default is 0 seconds of delay before the device is reported missing.

Programs will now merge correctly regardless of how Zone Selection is set up

Live speech will now always start correctly after a "rejected" call

(1.3.3.1) If a call was rejected the operator would have to press twice on the live speech button to set up a new call. This is now fixed.

Recall is now correctly timing out if timeout is used

EMT - Clear all activity will now not have destination field if "all" is selected

EMT - Adding an amplifier to more than one zone will now always generate a "multiple zones" warning
