LQ to HelixNet Connectivity

LQ 4.0 and above.

HelixNet 4.0 and above.

Linking one ore more LQ units to a HelixNet Main Station (HMS) in a Link-Group is a way of greatly increasing the number of I/O interfaces available in your HelixNet intercom system.

The HelixNet Main Station must be the Link Master in any Link-Group.

Linking HelixNet and LQ also brings Agent-IC, SIP and Eclipse (IVC) connectivity into your HelixNet system.

HelixNet/LQ Link-Group

Once an LQ unit is linked to an HMS in a Link-Group, all ports on the LQ unit are visible in the CCM and available to be placed in a HelixNet Channel. Once a port is in a Channel, audio from that port can be routed anywhere within the system.

Connecting an HMS and an LQ unit also brings the possibility of Agent-IC, SIP and IVC connectivity into your HelixNet intercom system (according to license for Agent-IC and SIP).

Note: A HelixNet/LQ Link-Group supports up to 3 linked Main Stations and up to 3 linked LQ units (to a maximum of 6 devices in total).
Note: The HMS must always be the Link-Master in a HelixNet/LQ Link-Group.

The following limitations are imposed when LQ devices are linked to a HelixNet Link-Group:

  • No creation or use of Direct Connections

  • No interconnection of Clear-Com panels over 4-wire

  • No SIP hangup capability through the HMS Front panel

  • No Internet connection between LQ units.
Note: If you upgrade your HelixNet system when you have a Link-Group set up, the linking status will be reset and you will need to re-establish the Link-Group.
