That's a BIG help. It's what I was hoping the active memory was typically used for.
Sounds like there's a good chance that the controller + PMAC firmware together should be able to deal with the active memory not being preserved. I've got a pair of batteries on order, but am going to proceed with check-out.
Any suggestion as to the image names for those active memory parameter display utilities so I can see if they're on the controller's Win95 C: drive?
Are they likely to be DOS based as there aren't any utility icons that show up in the program manager MicroPath window with the controller program's icon.
Next step is to power up the servo system as well as the controller & see how far I can get.
BTW, my background is computer systems design, electrical & logic during the 1970s, then many years of designing/writing kernel mode code for the VMS operating system.
I know my way around computers in general. I just don't have the specific info I need to help me get going on this system.
