Press release date: October 1, 2003

Migrate proven, reliable BASIC programs from 1771-DB and 1746-BAS modules to ControlLogix and run them at dramatically higher speeds.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif., October 1, 2003

ProSoft Technology, Inc. introduces a new BASIC programmable module for Allen-Bradley's ControlLogix platform (MVI56-BAS). Now you can migrate proven, reliable BASIC programs from 1771-DB and 1746-BAS modules to ControlLogix. ProSoft's BASIC module also features:

· Single-slot, backplane-compatibility for the ControlLogix platform

· Add BASIC programming with DH-485 and DF1 function calls

· Allows the user to write programs for specialized applications

· Saves ControlLogix processor memory by running math algorithms

· Supports BASIC-52 programming language, allowing the user to easily develop, edit, run and debug BASIC programs

The BASIC module contains three ports:

· DH-485: Allows access to DH-485 compatible devices using an Allen-Bradley AIC+ module (user-supplied)

· Port 1: ASCII serial communication or program port

· Port 2: Capability to configure Port 2 for DF1 communication using BASIC programming

The BASIC programs are stored in the MVI56-BAS Compact Flash disk allowing the user to easily backup the BASIC programs to another Compact Flash disk or to a local PC. Up to 24064 bytes of RAM memory are available.

Example application for the MVI56-BAS module include:

· SCADA system

· Foreign device data concentrator

· Bar code scanners

· Weigh scale interface

· Legacy BASIC protocol connections
