INCON Systems has a new product to "breathe life" into your CAT I Control System.
It's time for CPR (Control Platform Replacement)!!!
CPR is a computer/monitor replacement for the CAT I HP-150 monitor and dual-disk drive system. CPR provides a simplified replacement for the HP-150. Just remove the old computer and dual disk drive. CPR mounts in the same space as the HP-150 and plugs into the existing connectors. The floppy drive mounts where the dual disk drive had been. The CPR installation kit has everything you need and is easily accomplished without special tools. The CAT I Operator Interface is the same, NO RETRAINING REQUIRED! Itís that simple! In just over an hour, the machine control has been upgraded and CPR has extended the life of your system.
The CPR hardware is based on an IBM PC/AT compatible from a premier supplier in the INDUSTRIAL marketplace.
Some of the key features include:
266MHz AMD Am5x86 processor
Bright 10.4" STN VGA color LCD Flat Panel Display
16 Mbytes of fast EDO DRAM
2.0 Gbyte or larger hard drive
Analog resistive touch screen
Built in 10/100 Base-T Ethernet
While we were going through the conversion of some very old HP 150 assembly code to the MSDOS environment we took the opportunity to add a few enhancements to the CAT I Operator Interface.
Just to name a few:
NO MORE GREEN SCREENS, the Operator Interface is in COLOR
Both HP format and DOS format floppy disk support
NO MORE 64 Kbyte CNC PLAY FILE LIMITATION
File size is now only limited by disk space
Improved file and directory selection, just touch the file name on the screen
MS Networking Ethernet networking support
