Expands Functionality with Programmable Event Segregation and Ethernet Transceiver Support

Waltham, Mass., September 14 2006 – Keltron Corporation, a leading provider of life safety event management solutions, announces the availability of version 3.0 software for the Keltron LS 7000 life safety event management system. This important release includes two interim upgrades with features that have been developed at the recommendation of Keltron’s customers.

The Keltron LS 7000 Version 3.0 software release includes these significant new features, upgrades and improvements:

Programmable Event Segregation: this important new feature enables events to be directed to different operators at different workstations. Widely requested in both campus and municipal environments, this feature enables a new level of flexibility.

Keltron LS Net Ethernet Transceiver Support: in addition to direct wire, fiber, radio and digital dialer signaling technologies, the Keltron LS 7000 now supports the new Keltron LS Net Ethernet transceiver that transmits signals using standard 10/100 megabits/second Ethernet communications technology.

Coded-Signal Support: this new release of the Keltron LS 7000 software provides an intuitive method of entering of coded signal information along with direct display and history reporting for coded signal systems.

Multi-Workstation Network Configuration: a single, application-specific utility program makes the connection between Keltron LS 7000 workstations and the Keltron LS Server fast and efficient.

Receiver Interface Status: when the Keltron LS 7000 system encounters problems with connections to the event receivers, it reports, logs and records the information to history as supervisory alarms. This provides enhanced visibility into system operation for increased system integrity.

Other enhancements include:
Customized Default Login
Flexible, Programmable Cross-Zone Restoral
Add-Device Wizard
Fast Access to Last Event Received
History Performance Upgrades
At-A-Glance Service Mode Display
