We have a very old ISA Turbo PMAC,but now for upgradation we need to port all on a new PCI Turbo PMAC. Any Suggestions ? Thanks in advance.

 

The PMAC itself will be no problem, however any code running on the PC that communicates with the PMAC will need to be examined. What programs are running on the PC that communicate with the Turbo PMAC?

Thank-you JeffLowe,

 

We have several PLCs with Turbo PMAC. And we too have .SRC files for these PLCs alongwith ALLFILES.SRC & ALLFILES.PMC

 

At High level we have Mount Application which uses it. Actually we have a Telescope. PMAC is installed on Windows NT.

 

Are these enough to port on PCI Turbo PMAC ?

 

Regards,

If there are going to be any issues I believe it will be in getting Windows NT to recognize the PMAC card. Have you tried seeing if the Turbo PMAC PCI card is even going to be recognized by the OS? IF NT does not automatically pick up the card, the issue is going to be porting your system to a newer OS which will mean updating to a newer communications library like PCommServer.
