This is the Main Menu for the Free Management Suite.

Depending on the capabilities of your Chime Master system and its firmware revision, you may have fewer or additional buttons compared to the panels above.

Buttons will gray out if the bell control is in a mode that cannot support them (such as when it is playing).

Menu customization

Right clicking your mouse in the button area of the main menu allows you to customize the menu. You can hide the details panel displayed on the right of the window, resize buttons and hide buttons you don’t use. The default button sizes are handy for a touch screen, but feel free to make them smaller if you always use a mouse.

Holding the left mouse button over an icon button allows you to re-position it in the menu.

Libertas option details

Other information pertaining to the connected bell controller will be displayed in the upper right-hand box. A customer service representative may request these if you call for technical support. You can hide this box by right-clicking on the panel and de-selecting View-Details.

  • M = Hardware Model
  • F = Firmware Version (MMYY)
  • L = Sequence Library Version
  • V = Voices indicates voicing
  • D = Clock Dial interface (Y/N)

(V, T and R options are not applicable to the Libertas controllers)

Status bar

Normally the left side of the status bar will say it is Ready. Some features require the ringing system to enter a dedicated remote communications mode when writing to FLASH memory. Switching between FLASH and Ready modes may cause the controller to reboot, resulting momentary delay. The status bar at the bottom of the application screens indicates the current mode of the bell system.

At the right end of the status bar you can see the schedule status. If a macro schedule has become active it will be displayed so you know which one is currently active. If the schedule edit mode has uploaded the schedule it will say Schedule Loaded.

Always make USB connections to the bell control before starting Management Suite. Allow a few seconds after connecting for the drivers to load.
