Hardware Connection: USB-2: The plotter interfaces via USB-2 port with all CAD systems using the principle graphic formats including HPGL, HPGL/2, ISO (Gerber Cutter), STD (Microdynamics raster) as well as the UNIVERSAL format, ASTM D6959, recently recognized by all CAD producers. Includes plotting software compatible with Windows: 9X/ ME/ NT/ 2000/ XP/ VISTA.
Auto Diagnosis: At power on, the system pass through a series of auto diagnosis cycles for the control of all states of functionality. In the event of a malfunction,a succession of questions appears on the front display to assist the operator in resolving the problem. When confronted by more serious circumstances the operator is guided by the onboard system through a troubleshooting itinerary in order to relate pertinent information to Algotex’s Support Center and receive a specific diagnosis to solve the problem. All data regarding auto diagnosis has been archived to enhance technical support analysis.
Log: A chronological log of plotting activity automatically registers all information regarding the plot list queue, including total plotted meters and elapsed plotting times; thus permitting control of operations at a later date and the eventual statistical analysis.
Remote Internet Control: When the plotter is connected to a PC that is part of a network, the auto diagnosis may be viewed in real time for simple observation of plotter status, or for direct intervention on plotting operations from the remote Central Support workstation.
