Remote PC Hook-Up


Remote PC Screen Display

With CAT's new PC hookup system it's now possible to observe and control the status of a CAT altitude system from a local computer.

The full-screen graphical display continually updates:

  • Effective altitude (digital current, and graphical history showing trend)
  • Set-Point altitude
  • CO2 (digital current, and graphical history showing trend)
  • Temperature
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Equipment Status
  • The Controller's emergency alarm (Altitude or CO2 too high) can be echoed at the PC

This information is all data-logged to a Microsoft Excel compatible CSV file for subsequent review.

Operation:

  • The entire system can be turned on from the PC, or from the Controller
  • The entire system can be turned off (actually "standby") from the PC, or from the controller.
  • The Set-Point altitude can be adjusted on the PC, or on the Controller
  • A time-stamped note can be added to the data-log report

The connection can be to an RS-232 ("serial") port, or to a USB port. All current versions of Windows operating system supported. Computer shut-down does not affect Controller. Ask about wireless hookup.
