Web Programming






X5 Pagers can be programmed and configured using the Web Programming Tool. Users with a valid logon can create profiles, capcode assignments and upgrade firmware by connecting to the Web Programming Tool from a computer with either an Infra-red port or an Infra-red Cable.

Also available is a high speed Infrared connection cable that simplifies the connection of the X5 to a computer terminal. It is a plug and play unit that can simply be installed in either a Windows, a Linux or a Macintosh computer system.






Programming Terminal



The X5 Progamming Terminal is designed for those organizations who desire to have local control over the programming and provisioning of their X5 pagers. The Terminal is a self contained unit that can either be connected to an Intranet or can be used in isolation with an Infra-red connector to programme X5 devices.

The Terminal provides all the functionality of the Web Based Programming tool, and manages the records of each X5 device under management. New devices can be added with either local updates through the USB port, or through access to the Internet. 

The Programming Terminal maintains a database of all X5 units under its control, and can be accessed across an intranet using a standard web browser.  Alternatively the unit can be isolated with a direct attached screen and browser, and X5 units can be programmed using the supplied infrared cable connector.








The X5 Software Development Kit is a complete software system for designing and debugging programmes that control the X5 pager operation.

With this kit developers can create new and unique functionality for the X5 pager, supplementing the existing features of the X5, or replacing them entirely. Developers can create an entirely custom application for the X5, with custom menus, displays and behaviours. Alternatively, if the developer wishes to retain the existing X5 functionality, they can create up to two plug-in applications which appear on the main menu, alongside the existing menu items.

Like many standard X5 features, the custom applications can be programmed and controlled via the standard programming software used to configure the X5. The SDK ships complete with several working code examples enabling developers to quickly experiment with the SDK. The SDK is also available on three platforms: Mac OSX, Linux and Cygwin. Each SDK ships with a fully featured X5 simulator, which developers can use to test software functionality without having to physically install the software on a device.
As an example of the type of things that can be done, the picture below shows a message being displayed that illustrates the wind speed direction and strength from a weather measuring station:

The video below shows an example of what can be done with the SDK. It has a bank of 10 pagers that are receiving messages. The pagers are programmed so that they will each display one letter of the message.  This is purely for demonstration purposes to show the versatility of the display and programming environment. In this little application you can select the individual default letter displayed on each X5 (using the UP/DOWN buttons). To configure which number in the sequence of characters each X5 is, use the LEFT/RIGHT button. In the video demonstration, the message "hello world" is sent to all X5s via a paging transmitter. All share a common RIC so all simultaneously receive the same message and decode it correctly for their order in the sequence. While the pager is on the charger in this demo mode, the display will be constantly illuminated. Once removed from the charger, the display will timeout after its normal timeout period.

Plastic Holster

The X5 Plastic Holster is an exceptionally strong, high impact holster that is designed to hold the X5 series pager. It has protective curved edges to stop the pager being damaged whilst being worn, and includes openings to ensure that the alert signals are heard or seen.

The Holster enables a person to:

  1. Easily read the pager display by tilting the holster
  2. Rapidly remove and insert the pager into the holser
  3. Auto on-off of the pager on removal and insert


Leather Holster


The X5 Leather Holster is a genuine, high quality leather holster for the X5 series pagers.

It is designed to fit onto wide belts, and has a magnetic latch that enables easy retrieval and storage.

The holster is designed to ensure that alerts can be easily heard or seen, and has an auto-on off trigger when a pager is stored or retrieved from the holster.
