The software runs on IBM-compatible PCs
and is designed to acquire data from compression and tensile testing machinery such as Instron's model 4210, which was introduced late last year.
It is available as software only, which runs on any IBM-compatible PC
outfitted with a Hunkar-Net card and serial port (a touchscreen is not required).
Minimum Windows system requirements for running OfficeReady Family Essentials include an IBM-compatible PC
with a Pentium processor or better, 166 MHz or faster; Windows 95, 98, 2000 or Windows NT 4.
A new operator interface from Husky Injection Molding Systems also has multi-window capability and is also based on a factory-hardened IBM-compatible PC
with high-resolution color monitor and soft-touch keypad.
