This is a new security feature that will
allow administrators to lock users out of the Beltpack menus. Access can
only be granted with a three-digit security key. This key code is initially entered
at the Basestation via the “Tech Menu”. That key is then passed on to all Beltpacks at the time of pairing. Once paired, the Beltpack can be locked using its
own menu system by selecting “Menu Lock”.
The menu lock will work independently
of the other “Lock Key” settings within the Beltpack. Once a Beltpack has
been menu locked, the MENU button will no longer function. If the MENU button
is pressed, a message is displayed on the screen stating the “Beltstation has
been menu locked, Press ENT to enter security key”. After pressing ENT, the
user can rotate the knobs to scroll through values and either press ENT or the
knob itself to select the value for each digit. If the key code is ever changed
at the Basestation, the Beltpacks would use the old key code until a re-pair
is performed to that Basestation.
