PLIANT Technologies Announces New V1.8 Firmware Update For Its CrewCom Intercom System

Pliant Technologies announces the release of its version 1.8 firmware update for all CrewCom wireless intercom systems and devices. This new V1.8 firmware offers several significant improvements, including refined communications for network devices, and provides an overall enhanced user experience for Pliant’s CrewCom customers.

The 1.8 firmware update includes a new group management feature in CrewWare and a new two-level user rights feature. With a roaming bias option for CrewCom Radio Packs as well as the ability to connect/disconnect configured CrewCom devices without power-cycling the system, the 1.8 firmware update offers improved battery monitoring for the system’s devices. Additionally, the 1.8 firmware does not require users to power cycle remote devices when power cycling the system’s Control Unit. The firmware update also adds mixed band options on 900MHz transceivers and enables use of GPO relays.

Pliant continues to support its customers with improvements that enhance the functionality of its product offerings,” says Gary Rosen, Vice President of global sales for Pliant Technologies. “This new V1.8 update offers a number of significant improvements for all CrewCom users including full compatibility with the new Pliant 6+6 Drop-In Charger, which is now shipping. This update is available now and we recommend that all users update their systems to take advantage of the enhanced feature set.”
