NWS- MAINT Impact to EMWIN
Posted by Brad Campbell on 11 May 2016 09:26 AM

The NWS is working on their satellite uplink station and that has caused an internet feed outage projected to be continuing through around 7 PM CST today.  Those customers currently relying on the NWS to activate their sirens need to be made aware that they will need to manually activate until EMWIN comes  back online.  Unfortunately, this is out of our control.

Version 5.XX Family

 

11/15/2014

11/8/2014 Build 5425
1. Added the ability to load and display image layers.
 
8/24/2014  
1. Changed the call key 7 and up routine to check for no selected sirens or groups and the call key has special control.  In this case, it will process the wild card
mask in the special control and add the appropriate commands.  
2. Changed the call key 7 and up routine to check for “Activate Independent” option on the all group.  When this is found, the software will select all sirens and then place them in groups if groups have been assigned.  This is similar to what happens in the call key 1 to 6 routine.
 
8/21/2014  
1. The public address window will now close when cancel activation is clicked.
 
8/5/2014  
1. WxFailSafe - Corrected an exception that occurred when sending files with the
Mode set to Single.

2. The sound card level now defaults to 100 on a new install.
 
7/19/2014  
1. Added and implemented 6 commands for special control.  These commands can be inserted into the call key to control non-whelen sirens/devices.  The actual commands that are sent are still setup in the siren and group’s special control tab.
 2. The siren and group’s special control tab fields have been relabeled Command 1 through 6.
7/12/2014
 1. The Siren County field now accept County (FIPS) and Zone codes.  For example

 4. Implemented one sound card per interface.
 5. Implemented volume control for each interface.
6. The volume control setting on each interface should be a value from 1 to 100. This number represents a percentage, where 100 is 100 percent.
 
7/5/2014  
1. The Call Key setup window now has a new tab for notification.  The Send Email option was moved from the Call Key tab to the Notification tab.  It was renamed to Send Post Notification Email.  Added Send Pre-Activation Email and Pre-Activation Message fields.  The Send Pre-Activation Email drop down box allows the user to select a blank entry for no email or 26 different group identifiers (SJA through SJZ).  When one of the group identifiers is selected, the Pre-Activation Message field should be populated with a user message.  The software will generate a product for processing by Weather Message before the sirens are activated.  An alarm must be setup in Weather Message that corresponds to the group identifier with the appropriate email settings.  For example, selecting SJA in the Send Pre-Activation Email field will require the alarm SJAWXM in Weather
Message.
 
6/28/2014
1. The Sign Board Clear message can be changed by setting up [SignBoard] section in WeatherWarnServer.ini.  Set the parameter Clear= to the message desired.

2.20.14 Latest Release Notes and Changes for Version 4 and Version 5 Family
Posted by Brad Campbell on 20 February 2014 08:35 AM

Latest WeatherWarn Software Patch Notes (2.20.2014)

You can determine which version you are currently running via the Help -> About in the program menu 

If you need assistance to make sure you are running the latest version , Please open a ticket in the support system for inquire 


Version 5.xx Family

2/6/2014 Build 5150

1.Changed the programs back to 64 bit to correct an issue with registry access. Implement changes in the programs to work around the 4.5 framework slow loading bug.

2/4/2014 Build 5148

1.Changed the setup routines to use WeatherWarnServer or WeatherWarnClient as the key name in the auto startup routine.

2.Changed the programs to 32 bit instead of 64 bit to get around a slow loading bug in the 4.5 framework.

 

Version 4.xx Family

2/16/2014 Build 5160

  1. Recompiled the programs to work with Weather Message 4.1 release.

 

8/10/2013 Build 4970

  1. Changed the program version to 4.1.

 

7/21/2013 Build 4951

Added the ability to adjust the DTMF mark and space timing for the Wwarn-2 interface.  Add the following lines to the WeatherWarn.ini or WeatherWarnServer.ini,  [Siren] section:
DTMFMarkAdjust=xxx
DTMFSpaceAdjust=xxx
xxx should be the plus or minus amount to adjust the default DTMF mark and space values.

The software will check the interface version to see if it is 1.5f.  For 1.5f, it will set these values to DTMFMarkAdjust=7 and DTMFSpaceAdjust=11 if they have not been set manually in the ini file. 

It is recommended that the software be allowed to adjust these values.  The Wwarn-2 interface version 1.8 firmware does not need any adjustment.

If the ini file is manually updated, it will have to be modified when installing an interface with 1.8 or newer firmware.

Latest Software Update and WWARN-2 Interface Firmware Update
Posted by Brad Campbell on 11 June 2013 11:11 AM

Latest WeatherWarn Software Patch Notes

6/10/2013 Build 4909

  1. The Wwarn-2 interface will now ignore DTMF responses less than 3 digits.  Any response less than 3 digits is ignored and recorded in the debug file.

6/1/2013

  1.  The system now defaults the Weather Message Server TCP/IP address to 127.0.0.1.  This effectively disables the “Find Weather Message” function.

5/30/2013 Build 4898

  1. The Wwarn-2 interface will now ignore blank DTMF responses from the interface.

5/20/2013 Build 4888

  1. The log file will now contain an entry when we process a weather product and the system is in manual mode.  This will allow us to confirm that the system was in manual mode at the time that the weather product was received.
  2. The log file will now contain an entry when we process a weather product that has expired.  Expired weather products do not activate sirens.  This will record that fact in the log file.

 

New WeatherWarn Interface Firmware

Firmware 1.5f

This release corrects a problem where the WWARN-2 Interface could lockup and become unresponsive.

When receiving DTMF and attempting to send DTMF at the same time, the internal software return stack would become corrupted and box would become unresponsive

 

Please Contact support to discuss options on how to apply the firmware to your existing WWARN-2 Interface box
