BTR connections for older CNC's
Our behind the tape reader (BTR) link connects a PCs parallel printer port to your CNCs tape reader interface. In operation, the CNC runs in the TAPE mode, just like it's reading data from its tape reader. This is an easy way to enhance an older NC or CNC with nearly unlimited memory, full screen editing, subprogram calling, and decimal-point programming. If your PC is networked, the BTR connection also lets you run files directly from the server. The downside: A parallel BTR cable can only be about 15 ft. long, so the PC must be located near the CNC.
