Products for use with Photon Technology International (PTI)

Photon Technology International (PTI) has been using Scientific Solutions products since the early 1980s has established a large customer base world-wide. PTI offers a number of systems based upon versions of Scientific Solutions popular and well-established LabMaster products including the LabMaster DMA / ISA and the LabMaster PRO PCI family. Scientific Solutions is pleased to repair these products and to provide replacements or upgrades.

For users of the PTI Felix software package, Scientific Solutions offers both an ISA and PCI solution. Users of Felix with the LabMaster ISA card can migrate now migrate to newer PCI based computers using the LabMaster DPCI card and DeskTop unit specifically designed for Felix. You get to keep your existing software, but run it on a newer more modern computer.

LabMaster for Felix (Windows 3.1, 95, 98) - ISA Based Computers

The LabMaster DMA / ISA has been used with the PTI system for years. The LabMaster DMA PC Interface installs inside the computer and connects to a desktop PTI unit. Several flat ribbon cables are used to make this connection. Inside the PTI unit is the LabMaster External A/D board along with a special connection board. The various ribbon cables attach to the External A/D and the connection board. On the front of the PTI unit are BNC connectors.

Scientific Solutions services the PTI units, and can provide replacement parts and new units.

LabMaster for Felix (Windows 3.1, 95, 98) - PCI Based Computers

The LabMaster DPCI is a PCI version of the LabMaster DMA. You can use the LabMaster DPCI to replace your ISA installation for use with the same PTI software that you currently use with the LabMaster DMA product. Note that using the LabMaster DPCI requires that your computer system allows you to select a particular interrupt (in this case Interrupt 5) for the PCI slot containing the LabMaster DPCI. Most computer systems allow this, but if you have questions contact Scientific Solutions for help.

Along with the newer small PCI card, Scientific Solutions also provides a new DeskTop unit, that conveniently connects to the PCI card with a single quick-connect round cable replacing the several ribbon cables of the ISA design. On the front of the DeskTop unit are the familiar standard BNC connections that you are use to with your current BNC unit. This new unit has a sleek modern look on the outside, and modern reliable high-tech circuits on the inside.

The Felix software is generally configured to use Interrupt 5 in your computer. If you want to continue to use this interrupt, th

LabMaster PRO with DeskTop BNC

Photon Technologies International also uses the Scientific Solutions LabMaster PRO with DeskTop BNC unit. This product installs in a PCI computer, but is not the same as the LabMaster DPCI previously mentioned. The LabMaster DPCI will run the PTI software originally written for the LabMaster DMA / ISA (Felix), whereas the LabMaster PRO will not. The LabMaster PRO is the basis for some newer PTI solutions.

Title LabMaster DPCI Solution for Photon's PTI Felix Software
Overview The Scientific Solutions LabMaster DPCI for PTI Felix was designed especially for customers of Photon's PTI Felix software who are currently running using the LabMaster DMA / ISA card but desire to run the software on a newer computer that has PCI slots. We created a small PCI card that installs in your modern PCI computer. The card then connects using a single quick-connect round (no more fighting with flat ribbon cables) to a DeskTop unit that contains the same BNC connections that you currently use. Install the card, install your Felix software, connect to the DeskTop unit and connect your equipment to the BNC connections and you are off and running!
