486 CLASS PCs SUPPORTED BY INTERFACE FROM XEROX ENGINEERING SYSTEMS

 ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- An improved parallel interface that enables users to produce hard-copy graphics on Xerox Engineering Systems plotters from ISA and EISA architecture PCs running in networked or non-networked environments was announced today.
 The Model 110B is an ua?ted version of the Model 110A. It supports all 486 class PCs, the IBM PC/AT, AT compatibles and HP/Apollo DN3000/4000 workstations. In addition, the Model 110B supports Windows Operating System on ISA architecture PCs through third-party products.
 This improved interface allows for faster plotting as compared to the 110A and at a lower price. A speed of about 4 MB per second can be expected on EISA units and 1.5 MB per second on PCs using ISA architecture.
 A high percentage of Xerox plotters are connected to PCs, many of which are running VGS or ServeWare. "The 110B is a high-speed connectivity device," said Quinn Tran, director of product marketing, Xerox Engineering Systems. "It can keep pace with today's powerful computers, and that means users can get full value from their hardware."
 Direct Memory Access (DMA) operation is provided by the Model 110B increasing CPU productivity by reading data quickly, and freeing the CPU for other tasks. The interface performs byte-to-byte handshaking for increased data integrity.
 The software offers conversational menu prompts to ease the user through the installation process. The cable can connect the host to Xerox Engineering Systems equipment up to 1,000 feet (305 meters) away.
 The Model 110B parallel interface will be available in the second quarter of 1993 from the Xerox Engineering Systems direct sales force and through authorized Xerox dealers. The product package will include a single printed circuit board, cable, software and user documentation.
 Xerox Engineering Systems is the world's largest supplier of engineering copiers, wide-format printers and fax machines, raster plotters and engineering document management systems.
