The PC300 Control/Interface Software package allows a user to control a GP300-series graphic printer/chart recorder from an IBM-PC or compatible. The package is available in three versions:
PC300 OPERATOR INTERFACE:
In the EDIT mode, printer/recorder configuration files can be produced with or without a GP300. The configuration can be saved on disk and/or downloaded to the GP300 as required. Commands to store configurations that have been downloaded into the GP300’s nonvolatile memory are provided.
Outstanding features include the ability to define working parameters in engineering units, convenient forms for entering programmable filter and grid parameters, and one for entering, editing and downloading custom programs for real-time math. Another utility is a graphic editor used to define up to eight programmable sprites for trace differentiation.
LIB300 INTERFACE LIBRARY
The library was developed for MS-DOS systems and Microsoft C/C++ version 7.0. It can also be used with other C compilers including Microsoft Visual C++. It allows communications with the GP300 via either the parallel or serial interface, and can be configured to communicate by using interrupts and queues, or by polling the port. Example programs that show how to use the library are included with the package.
