Astro-Med Introduces PC-Based Real-Time Virtual Chart Display Software.

WEST WARWICK, R.I. -- The Test and Measurement Product Group of Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALOT) has introduced a powerful new PC-based strip chart display and analysis software package. Developed for telemetry facilities and other applications requiring real-time data viewing, the Everest VDiS (Visual Display Software) is a powerful tool that transforms the PC into a virtual strip chart recorder.

Based on the software from Astro-Med's flagship Everest Telemetry Recorder-Workstation, Everest VDiS software features a number of powerful real-time display capabilities. Data can be monitored in real-time and simultaneously displayed in strip chart, numeric datalogging and x-y plot formats. "Moving pen tips" driven by the signal data mark the real-time data points. Alarm limits can be set to allow waveforms to change color when predefined limits are exceeded. IRIG time code is displayed and grids can be synchronized with time, allowing data to be interpreted in military time.

The Everest VDiS software package was designed and engineered for aerospace applications, including flight testing, missile testing, flight simulation and satellite telemetry. Potential real-time monitoring applications also exist in industrial environments, including power generation, telecommunications, commercial satellite tracking, automotive testing, and primary metal manufacturing.

Wide acceptance of Everest VDiS software is anticipated, as it has the same real-time display capability as the Everest strip chart recorder. A potentially large demand for the Everest VDiS software is currently emerging as commercial aircraft manufacturers and government agencies such as NASA, the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Air Force are retiring old chart recorders and replacing them with state-of-the-art equipment for telemetry recording.

Everest VDiS software is designed to operate on computers running Windows 98, Windows XP and Windows 2000. The open protocol of the Everest VDiS software allows it to accept data from virtually any telemetry system. The host control protocol allows telemetry systems to control many Everest VDiS functions, including display configurations, scroll speeds, alarm levels, etc.

Everest VDiS software offers a customizable user interface, making it easier than ever for a user to customize the system for a particular application. An unlimited number of setups can be saved to memory, saving time and resources during system setup.

Pricing for the Everest VDiS software starts at $3,495 for a single license. Site licenses are also available.

The Test and Measurement Product Group of Astro-Med designs, manufactures, and sells a broad range of high tech specialty data acquisition and printing systems employed around the world in a wide range of industrial, scientific, and medical applications.
