  Complete Solution for PC Cards with MS-DOS Format

  • Supports all features of DOS FAT File system (MS-DOS 6.0)
  • Communication via Serial Interface
  • Supports all common used ATA PC Cards
  • Extended temperature range (-40�C...85�C)
  • Easy Handling and Installation
  • Optional DOS-Drive SDK
The DOS-Drive is available in different versions to suit various industrial applications where flexible, reliable exchange of data between devices, machines and systems is required. Our offerings include external, internal and 19" systems.

Typical Applications:
  • Manufacturing: Installation of machines, production control, data recording and monitoring
  • Positioning: Recording of vehicle data, navigation systems, guiding systems
  • Data Records: For connection to scales and data acquisition systems

The DOS-Drive uses a simple serial communication protocol to write data onto PC Cards. It will automatically generate a DOS file format (FAT16) so that the stored data can be read with a standard PC Card reader or the existing PC Card slot on laptop computers.
The DOS FAT file format is commonly used and can be processed with most computer systems under various operating systems. Memory cards with DOS FAT file format can be directly handled and do not require data conversion.

  • File system 100% compatible to MS-DOS 6.0, 12-bit and 16-bit FAT
  • File functions: create, open, close, read, write, positioning, rename, delete, read/define date and attribute
  • Subdirectory support: change, create, delete, show
  • Sector access for special applications (format independent access to all sectors of the PC Card (read and write))
  • Status information: PC Card inserted/changed, PC Card info (type, size, format)
  • User defined file names, up to 16 files can be opened at the same time
  • Optimized access through internal cache
