C Series v1.2.zip

Contents:

  •  alp.bin
  • cwebsite.bin

Description of change:

  • Switchable low cut filter added on both inputs with a networked amplifier – for applications where a microphone is plugged directly into the input. This is applied to the input, so does not affect test signals. Web configurable only. Default = off
  • DC output can be configured to flag faults with a networked amplifier. Web configurable only. Default = no error reporting (12V DC output)
  • Website enhancements:
    • Scaling on Compression & Current meters
    • Hidden channel B & current offset for single channel models
    • Added control of new features as detailed below
  • Improved management of settings restore to ensure compatibility with older units and enhance reliability.
  • Greater network security
    • Digest authentication
    • Monitoring and blacklisting multiple failed login attempts,
    • Stricter password rules
    • Telnet user authentication.

Note: Network security revisions may require adjustments to other systems which have been configured to communicate with C-series units – e.g. Telnet authentication. Please amend your systems as necessary.

  • Improved handling of GUI (front panel menu).
  • Improved handling of ‘Local Link’ network connection.
  • Support for up to 4 simultaneous website interface users
  • Fixes an issue on some units where output current is indicated without signal being delivered. In some extreme cases this causes a red screen start-up error “Loop A/B function test high over current’.
  • Enables upload of all files by USB power cycle.
