AUBURN, AL, JULY 16, 2020 — 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.
