Introduction
The XGate is a Unite module based on the ELISE hardware. It receives input from other Unite
modules or from external equipment. The main functionality of the XGate is to handle
different types of protocol. It will convert events to actions in our systems, and also to
provide an assignment interface to offer the ability for users to dynamically assign
recipients to events. The XGate will be used to integrate into Nurse Call Systems, Patient
Monitoring Systems, Laboratory Information Systems, Hospital Information Systems,
Radiology Information System, Building Management Systems, and Security Management
Systems.
A serial interface is included to enable input from external equipment using standard serial
protocols. The serial interface supports the ESPA 4.4.4 protocol, the Ascom Line protocol and
the TAP protocol. The Ascom Line protocol is designed to be simple enough to be controlled
manually, using a terminal program connected to the serial port.
This document describes the installation and configuration of the XGate that is done before
actions and events etc. are implemented in the XGate User Interface. Information about
administration of the User Interface and an overview picture of the XGate Runtime is found
in the, User Manual, Administration, XGate, TD 92364GB.

inputs are used for system supervision. For connections and a more detailed description of
the outputs and the inputs, see the Installation Guide, ELISE2, TD 92232GB.
2.3
Error Relay
The error relay output (J14 in figure 2 on page 3) can be used to indicate if the XGate is
operating. When the XGate starts, the error relay operates. When the XGate is shutting
down or rebooting, the error relay releases.
Whether the error relay output opens or closes on actual relay status, depends on how the
jumper J15 is set. For connections of the error relay and error relay output configuration, see
the Installation Guide, ELISE2, TD 92232GB.
2.4
Licences
The XGate is delivered with the licences already programmed. For available licences, see
Data Sheet XGate, TD 92339GB.
2.4.1
Unlicensed Mode
When needed, the XGate can be started in unlicensed mode. The XGate will have full
functionality for 2 hours in unlicensed mode. When the time for unlicensed mode runs out,
XGate needs to be restarted either physically, or from the XGate Administration web page.
How to set the XGate in unlicensed mode is described in the Installation Guide, ELISE2,
TD 92232GB.
2.5
Software Upgrade
To upgrade the XGate with a new software version by installing a software image, do as
follow:
Note: To be able to keep all the settings that has been done, including the Event Handler,
you will have to make two backups of the database, one system backup and one XGate
backup.
1
Make a system backup and an XGate backup of the database, see chapter 5.3
Backup/Restore on page 9.
2
Install the software image, for information see Installation Guide, ELISE2,
TD 92232GB.
3
Restore the system backup and then the XGate backup, see 5.3 Backup/Restore on
page 9.
To upgrade the XGate with a new application software, see Installation Guide, ELISE2,
TD 92232GB. This way of installing a new software should not effect the settings that has
been done, but a backup is always recommended if something should happen during
installation.

Planning
Before implementation of actions and events in the XGate User Interface, it is necessary to
plan and identify actions and events etc. that is going to be set up in the Graphical User
Interface. If Duty Assignment is going to be used you also have to consider about user
teams, location layout, and access rights.
For best result, follow the step-by-step guide:
1
Identify external Events that shall result in an action.
2
Which actions are needed.
3
Which information are needed in the actions.
4
Define escalation chain, and success/failure conditions.
Figure 3. Example of an escalation chain with success/failure conditions.
5
If Duty Assignment is going to be used, create location layout and related
information.
6
Define required conversion tables.
7
If Duty Assignment is going to be used, Users and User Teams have to be defined.
This is done in the ESS/Unite CM, see Installation and Operation Manual, Enhanced
System Services, ESS, TD 92253GB, Installation and Operation Manual, Unite CM
(ELISE2), TD 92718GB, or Installation and Operation Manual, Unite CM (ELISE3),
TD 92735GB.
8
If Duty Assignment is going to be used, define Access Rights for the User Teams.
When this is done the administration of the XGate User Interface can be started. See User
Manual, XGate Administration, TD 92364GB on how to configure and administrate the
XGate User Interface.

Change Language
The default language in the XGate GUI is English. The text that appear in the GUI are stored
in a database. Several languages can be stored in the database, but it is not possible to edit
or remove the default language. Additional languages can be imported, as described in 5.5.1
Translation of the GUI on page 10.
Figure 6. The default language is English.

list, import the language, see 5.5.1 Translation of the GUI on page 10.
2
Click “Apply” or “Set language”.
3
Restart applet(s) if opened for the new language to take effect.
Backup/Restore
In the XGate Home page, it is possible to backup and restore the database. It can for
example be used when information is to be copied from one XGate to another XGate, or to
restore the database in the XGate. The format of the backup/restore file is xxx.tar.gz.
There is also a backup/restore in the System Setup web page “xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/admin”. That
is to be used when an XGate module should be replaced with another XGate module in case
of hardware failure, and to update the database. The difference is that it is also possible to
backup/restore configuration in the ELISE, though this will not backup the information of
the Event Handler.
To backup or restore the database, go to “Backup/Restore” in the left menu of the Home
page.

I/O Setup
Inputs and outputs are defined in the I/O Setup page found in the left menu under “Other
Settings”. The activation of an input can be set to “on opening” or “on closing” and the
initial state for the output can be set to “low” or “high”.
Figure 13. I/O Setup page.
For the outputs, the state is set to the opposite of the initial state when activated. For
example, if output 2 is set to low in initial state, the output will automatically be set to high
when activated.
Every time a new output or input is defined an automatic ID is created. The ID is a running
number which can manually be changed into another number or a text if wanted. When an
output or input has been deleted, the XGate will not remember that the previous ID number
is free to be used again. The numbering will just continue on the number after the last
created one.
5.6.1
Outputs and Inputs
Before an input or output can be used in the configuration, it has to be defined with a name
and Module Address. The module address consists of IP address and, if Alarm Module and/or
Output Module are used, the module address on the A-bus.
XGate outputs
The XGate hardware has two outputs of open-collector type that can be used in the Alarm
Handling. These outputs are predefined at delivery. The initial state can be set to high or
low.
XGate inputs
The XGate hardware has two inputs that can be used. These inputs are predefined at
delivery. The states that can be detected are open and close.

Output Module outputs
The number of outputs that can be used in XGate can be extended by using an Output
Module (OM) connected to the A-bus. The output on the OM is defined by a name, the IP
address of the module connected to the A-bus, the OM’s module address1 on the A-bus, and
the output number. The initial state can be set to high or low.
Alarm Module inputs
The number of inputs that can be used can be extended by using an Alarm Module (AM)
connected to the A-bus. The input on the AM is defined by a name, the IP address of the
module connected to the A-bus, the AM’s module address1 on the A-bus and the input
number. The states that can be detected are open and close.

Configuration Example
In the External Actions > Extract and send data there is an example of a complete
configuration that can be used as a template. There are four event elements of alarm type
and location that have been created. More steps where the data is sent is found in the
example in the Extract an send data.
Figure 25. An example configuration in Extract and send data showing the four first
steps in an external action.
1
The expression, <[in]Message/:Body,separator,1,1,[:]>, where the “Body” before the
[:] is the part of the incoming message.
The destination, [local]Alarm Type, which means that it will look for Alarm Type in
the message.
2
The expression, <[in]Message/:Body,separator,2,2,[:]>, where the “Body” after the
[:] is the part of the incoming message.
The destination, [local]Location, which means that it will look for ’Location’ in the
message.
3
This is where the translation ’Location table’ has been setup to translate the
“Location”.
4
This is where the translation ’Alarm Type table’ has been setup to translate the
“Alarm Type”.
The example in the Extract and send data, also got four event elements defined to the
“Alarm Type” and the “Location” followed by a Sent Block where this is by default sent to
the Event Assignment, and a Response handling where triggers can be setup.
A configuration example of an incoming input message containing alarm type could look
like: location (03:12345), where the alarm type is “03”, and the location is “12345”. A
translation table has been set up to convert “03” to be sent out as a “fire alarm”, and the
location “12345” to be sent out as “Main building, floor 1”.

If no configuration is done it will trigger on all incoming messages.
Match Conditions: if there exists more than one trigger and they should differ from each
other the state and condition of the trigger can be changed. It will activate the Extract
and send data by default if nothing is done.
Activations: conditions can be set on activation. It will activate Extract and send data by
default if nothing is done.

Serial Interface
The serial interface included in XGate makes it possible to receive input from external
equipment.
The serial interface supports the ESPA 4.4.4 protocol and two ESPA dialects; the Ascom
dialect (teleCOURIER) and Ericsson dialect with some limitations. The serial interface also
supports the TAP 1.8 protocol and a simplified protocol called the Ascom Line protocol.
A detailed description of the two ESPA dialects and the Ascom Line protocol can be found in
the document; Protocol, Serial Data Interface S942SI, TD 92088GB.
TAP (Telocator Alphanumeric Protocol) is a paging protocol used to transmit up to a
thousand 7-bit characters to an alphanumeric pager. Developed in the early 1980s by the
Telocator Paging Association, which later became the Personal Communications Industry
Association (PCIA), TAP was also known as IXO and PET. TAP is widely used in the U.S. and
throughout Europe.
For limitations in the three protocols, refer to Appendix F.

How to remove Java status bar
Figure 29. Example when the buttons are covered by the Java applet window.
In the Java applet Windows, buttons can be covered by a status bar. This is dependent of the
client side browser setup. To remove the status bar, statements have to be added in the
java.policy file which is found in the Java directory that was created when the Java program
was installed on your computer:
1
Find the Java directory, for example C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\lib\security.
2
Open the latest Java version that is used. In the folder security > you will find the
java.policy file. Open the file with for example Notepad.
•

Appendix D: Extracting Information from HL7 v2 Messages
The appendix describes how to configure the XGate\Event Handler for extracting
information from HL7 version 2 messages into event elements for XGate event assignment.
The HL7 version 3 is an XML based protocol. See Appendix E: XML Message for more
information.
D.1
HL7 Classic Style Message Definition
The HL7 protocol transfers simple messages, in which all data is transferred as ASCII data. A
message is terminated with the characters as defined in the Minimum Lower Level Protocol
(MLLP).
Each segment begins with a three-character literal value that identifies it within a message.
A segment is always terminated with an ASCII Carriage Return character. Segments may be
defined as required or optional and may be permitted to repeat.
The first segment is a message header (MSH). It contains the delimiter characters to be used
in the message (|^~\&) and other information. Each segment consists of several Data fields.
Data fields are separated with a vertical bar character '|'. Individual data fields are found in
the message by their position within their associated segments. A data field can consist of
more than one component. A component may have sub components. Fields may be
repeated.

XGate\Event Handler Configuration
This section describes how an HL7 v2 message is transmitted from the Hospital Information
System (HIS) to the XGate system.
HIS - ASCII
The Hospital Information System (HIS) connects to XGate\ASCII through a TCP/IP socket.
The IP address to connect to is the IP address of the XGate box. An HL7 application message
is sent over this connection. The message is encapsulated between the input start and input
stop characters, see figure 35 on page 42.
The ADT is a software module in HIS.

Figure 7.
Figure 31. The connection between ADT - ASCII.
ASCII - Event Handler
The ASCII application will send a UNITE paging message to the Event Handler. The body of
the paging message includes the encapsulated message.
Note: The paging body text can only contain up to 5000 characters.
Figure 8.
Figure 32. Paging message to the Event Handler.
Event Handler - Action Handler
Based on a translation table that is defined by the customer, the Event Handler will extract
the needed information from the paging body text and send that as event elements to the
Action Handler.

Acknowledgements
In HL7 two types of acknowledgements exist. Accept and Application acknowledgement.
The MSH segment of the received HL7 message defines which type of acknowledgment the
sending party expects. This EH configuration is build to only send 'accept' on both types of
acknowledgements. This EH configuration will not send 'error' or 'reject' for those two types
of acknowledgements. A customer who would like this functionality needs to extend the
configuration himself.
Depending on the values of Fields 15 and 16 of the MSH segment an acknowledgement
type is expected.
The EH configuration will always send:
•
•
•
Accept acknowledgement with value CA “commit accept” when MSH field 15 has a value
of AL (always) or SU (success completion)
Application acknowledgement with value AA “application accept” when MSH field 16
has a value of AL (always) or SU (success completion)
When MSH fields 15 and 16 both are omitted, only an application acknowledgement
with value 'AA' will be send.

The Commit Accept acknowledgement will be send as soon as the Event Handler starts to
process the HL7 message. The application acknowledgement will be send as soon as the
event elements are sent to the Action Handler.

Event Handler, TD 92329GB.
For information on Source text from HL7, see an applicable HL7 document.
Define HL7 v2 Segment Data
The source text is used to indicate from which HL7 segment data needs to be extracted. The
destination text defines what data is extracted from the segment and how the event
element will be named. They are defined as:
•
•
Source text = HL7 segment ID as defined by the standard (for example PID)
Destination text = <description>!<number of values>!<ELEMENT_TO_EXTRACT>
Where:
•
number of values = number of ELEMENT_TO_EXTRACT occurrences that follows in this
definition.

Where:
•
•
•
•
•
ELEMENT_NAME = Name of the Event element that is sent to the Action handler
FIELD = Field number that includes the data (start count from segment ID)
REPETITION = Repetition number of the field that includes the data (EH will take first
occurrence if no repetition exists)
COMPONENT = Component number of the field that includes the data
SUBCOMPONENT= Subcomponent number of the component that includes the data (EH
will take COMPONENT if no subcomponent exists)
Example:
Note: A zero (0) is used if only one (1) value exist in the segment.

•
•
•
Element name = ID, with value = 2490298
Element name = NAME_GIVEN with value = Pippi
Element name = NAME_FAMILY with value = Långstrump
Note: Do NOT remove or change the MSH entry in the translation table. It is mandatory for
the Event Handler configuration to work properly.

Appendix E: XML Message
The appendix describes how to define segment from XML messages. XGate includes a
protocol template that can be used as an example for XML messages received from external
systems.
XML messages are written as:
<tag>
value
</tag>
E.1
Example XML message
The following example XML message is used to explain the XML protocol template delivered
with XGate:
<Message>
<Type>PSPA</Type>
<PSPA>
<Patient>
<Id>1234567890</Id>
<Name>
<Prefix>Miss</Prefix>
<Given>Pippi</Given>

<Bed>
<Name>-S4</Name>
</Bed>
</Location>
</Patient>
</PSPA>
</Message>
E.1.1
Define XML Segment Data
The translation table is defined as: The source text must be an incrementing number
indicating an index to each element that needs to be extracted from the XML message. The
destination text defines which tag values are extracted from the XML document.
•
•
Source text = incrementing number starting at 1
Destination text = <ELEMENT_NAME>!<Xpath expression>
Where:
•
•
ELEMENT_NAME= Name of the Event element that is sent to the Action handler
!= a mandatory delimiter that is needed by the event handler configuration

Xpath expression= an expression that defines which tag values to include in the element
value
The example translation table:
1
PATIENT_NAME!/Message/PSPA/Patient/Name
2
PATIENT_LOCATION!/Message/PSPA/Patient/Location
3
XML_EVENT_TYPECODE!/Message/Type
Would result in the following event elements:
•
•
[out]XGate event/:Event elements{1}/Name: PATIENT_NAME
[out]XGate event/:Event elements{1}/Value: Miss Pippi Langkous
•
•
[out]XGate event/:Event elements{2}/Name: PATIENT_LOCATION
[out]XGate event/:Event elements{2}/Value: First-aid-R1-S4
•
•
[out]XGate event/:Event elements{3}/Name: XML_EVENT_TYPECODE
[out]XGate event/:Event elements{3}/Value: PSPA
Note: The left row of the translation table must be incrementing starting at 1. It is
mandatory for the Event Handler configuration to work properly.
The XML syntax in received data must be correct for the template to work. If the received
data includes non-XML data it must first be removed.

Appendix F: Protocol Limitations
This appendix describes a number of protocol specific limitations and deviations. The serial
interface included in XGate is a successor to the system 900 module S942SI Serial Interface
and the supported ESPA and Ascom Line protocols are described in the document Protocol,
Serial Data Interface S942SI, TD 92088GB. To be able to fully understand the limitations it is
recommended to have this document available.
F.1
ESPA 4.4.4
F.1.1
Functionality
The protocol consists of blocks which consist of records which consist of data.
F.1.2
Limitations
Protocol Blocks
The original ESPA 4.4.4 specification has 4 different blocks and an additional 5’th block for
equipment manufacturer specified functionality. The 5’th block is not used by Ascom and
Ericsson dialect, instead two additional blocks 7 and 9 are specified for the dialects.
Request for license
(Block 7, Ascom and Ericsson dialect):
Request for module key number
(Block 9, Ascom and Ericsson dialect):
This block is not supported since license handling
differs from how it was done in 942SI. The block is
NAK:ed if received.
This block is not supported since license handling
differs from how it was done in 942SI. The block is
NAK:ed if received.
Protocol Records
Call type: Speech call (Record 4.2):
Speech paging is not supported. This record is
handled as a standard paging (Record 4.3)
Call type: Remote ack of old paging in
mobile unit (Record 4.5, Ascom dialect): This record is NAK:ed since it is not supported by
UNITE.
Call type: Erase of old paging
(Record 4.6, Ascom dialect):
If neither “ID” (Record 9) or “Running Number”
(Record D) is included in the message, the
message is NAK:ed. In 942SI it was ACK:ed but
didn’t function.
Call type: Cordless phone, undefined type
(Record 4.7, Ascom dialect):
Sent as standard paging (Record 4.3).
Call type: Cordless phone, internal type
(Record 4.8, Ascom dialect):
Sent as standard paging (Record 4.3).
Call type: Cordless phone, external type
(Record 4.9, Ascom dialect):
Sent as standard paging (Record 4.3).

Installation and Operation Manual
XGate
TD 92338GB
Number of transmissions
(Record 5, standard ESPA):
This record is accepted but ignored since it is not
supported by UNITE.
The parameter can be set in the advanced GUI
under “system 900”->”Default number of
transmissions” and is then valid for all messages
independent of the record value. Here it is also
possible to determine number of transmissions
based on the paging priority (advanced).
Mailbox number
(Record A, Ericsson dialect):
This record is accepted but ignored since it is not
supported by UNITE.
Infopage
(Record C, Ascom dialect):
This record is accepted but ignored since it is not
supported by UNITE.
Advanced parameters
F.2
Bleep each transmission:
This parameter was available in 942SI. The parameter is not
available in XGate, instead the parameter can be set in
advanced GUI under “system 900”->”Beep at each Tx”.
Flow control XON/XOFF:
Not supported since there are some issues with the control
characters. If the block check character becomes any of the
two control characters XON or XOFF, the flow control fails,
therefore flow control is no longer supported.
Ascom Line Protocol
F.2.1
Functionality
A line protocol message consists of the following records and separators:
<Addr/Message/Beepcode/PagFunc/NoOfTransm/Prio/Infopage>
All characters are writeable by hand using an ordinary terminal program such as hyper
terminal etc. Not all records needs to be given, for instance <> is a valid message that
delivers default message to default paging address.
F.2.2
Limitations
The following limitations apply:
PagFunc:
The Line protocol only supports call type 3 (plain paging) and
4 (alarm). All others are handled as plain paging.
NoOfTransm:
The Line protocol does not propagate no of transmissions but
it must be valid if submitted.
The parameter can be set in the advanced GUI under “system
900”->”Default number of transmissions” and is then valid for
all messages independent of the record value. Here it is also
possible to determine number of transmissions based on the
paging priority (advanced).
InfoPage:
The Line protocol does not propagate Infopage but it must be
valid if submitted.

Functionality
<ESC>PG1<CR>
Default logon string
First field of the data block is assumed to contain the paging address. The address is
treated as a decimal address, valid digits is 0–9. Any leading spaces will be ignored.
Field(s) after the first field is assumed to contain the paging text. If the datablock is
containing more than 2 fields, fields 3,4,5.. will be concatenated to the paging text to be
sent. (the separating <CR>:s will be treated as a part of the paging text. The paging text
is set as 'Body' in the Unite paging. The 'Subject' will be empty.
There is no restriction on how many blocks that can be sent during one logon session.
Limitations
The following limitations apply:
Using <US> or <ETB> as
blockterminators:
Not supported.
Sending <SUB> as
controlcharacter:
Not supported.
Maximum session timeout: Not implemented, however an inactivity timeout will occur
after 8 seconds when waiting for logonstring and 4 seconds
when waiting for blockdata after a <STX> has been received.
After 3 successive timeouts, an automatic disconnect sequence
will be initiated. These values can be changed through
parameters.
Timeout between blocks:
There will be no timeout between blocks.
After a logon has been received and after each pagingblock,
the Serial Interface is put into sleep mode. Three actions can
wake it up: A logoff request, a new logon request or a new
pagingblock.
Messages longer than 128
characters:
Will be accepted but truncated.
Message sequences:
Not used by the Serial Interface.
Software flow control of
the serialport:
Not supported.
Characters in the paging
text below 0x20 (except
for carriage return):
22 December 2010 / Ver. G
Will be converted to something above 0x7F (by adding the 8'th
bit).
