SOFTMAP UPGRADE KITS FOR WILD AVIOLYT, KERN
ZEISS C1XX, AND GALILEO D40 ANALYTICAL PLOTTERS
The upgrade kits offer the ability to upgrade AC1,
BC1, BC2, BC3, DSRx,
C1xx and Galileo D40 analytical plotters to current
technology by replacing the Nova 4/X or DG 30, LSI-11 and HP 1000
minicomputers with the plate processor. The stereoviewers and the
reliable electronics control remain unchanged. This economical solution
protects the original investment in the instrument, allows easy installation,
and is compatible with existing maintenance procedures. The plate
processor fits perfectly into the cabinet of the BC1, BC2, and C1xx
analytical plotters, or can simply be placed in the rear of the instrument.
The upgraded systems are connected by a serial line
to the host mapping (application) computer (PC or workstation).
The communication is based on either the L/H LMT protocol or the
Z/I P-protocol. This assures complete compatibility between the
upgraded systems and the current analytical plotter lines of L/H
Systems and Z/I Imaging. In other words, the upgraded instruments
behave like SD2000/3000 and P-series analytical plotters and all
the mapping programs available on SD2000/3000 and P-series analytical
plotters can be used without any modifications.
||Basic PC system without peripheries (black box),
||Intel 80486/66MHz or Pentium processor.
||2(3) Parallel I/O boards for the instrument cable
||Real-time software, providing the basic functionality
of analytical plotters (maintain stereo-model, measuring, and
drive-to functions, host communication)
||Instrument cable connects the plate processor
to the P13 connector or interface board for Aviolyt, DSR systems
and to the St10 and St11 connectors on Zeiss C1xx plotters,
||Communication between the application or host
computer and the real-time processor is based on the LMT protocol
for the Aviolyt, DSR systems and on the P?protocol for Zeiss
C1xx instruments. This assures the highest compatibility between
the SD2000/3000 plotter line and the Zeiss P-series plotter
family. The plate processor supports baud rates up to 19,200.
||The real-time loop rate of existing systems is
maintained, which results in extremely smooth plate motions.
||To perform basic photogrammetric orientation
and data measurement tasks, SoftMap's AP32 Stereo Orientation,
ATM and DTM Measurement Program provides complete solutions
in Windows© 95/98/ME and Windows© NT/2000/XP PC environment.
Or use any other orientation packages of your choice.
||Total user flexibility in selecting and configuring
the host mapping program and environment. Use any of the widely
used packages such as Atlas, AutoCAD, CADMAP, DAT/EM Capture,
KDMS, MicroStation, PCPRO600, VrOne, etc.
Simple procedure, can be carried out by customer:
||Remove rear panel of electronics cabinet
and unplug Nova 4/X, DG 30, or HP 1000 cable
|| Plug upgrade cable into the same connector
||Connect serial line cable to host (application)
||Included in the cost of the upgrade kit is a 6-month warranty. If a
problem is diagnosed, the upgrade kit will be replaced at no cost.
||Since the viewer system and the electronics control remain unchanged
L/H Systems, Z/I Imaging, and third-party providers continue to
offer service of the instruments.
