CopyStation III is suitable for PC Cards and
all storage media which can be used in a PC Card
It is supplied as a complete, ready-to-use system. The system consists of a PC without monitor, pre-installed altec copying software running under Windows XP Professional and four PC Card drives with a total of 8 PC Card Slots.
The following storage
media can be used in the FlashCard CopyStation III:
Our copying software, which was developed in-house, has the same Look & Feel in all altec CopyStation models. The user interface can be switched between German and English further languages are available as an option.
The Job Wizard is a key part of the software. It is used to specify all parameters of the copy job Name of the card image, number of copies, whether verification is required and configuration of the software options.
There is a Software option to create and copy short images. The short image copy option creates smaller image files if the master (source) memory media is only partly filled with user data. This results in faster programming of the target memory media.
The FlashCard CopyStation III provides two different copying methods for copying the data:
1.) Image Copy (default method) an image of the entire contents of the memory media is created and then copied to the target memory media. A 1:1 copy of the memory media is created. Accordingly, all sectors of the target memory media are overwritten. This method is supported by all memory media file systems.
2.) Short Image Copy (optional) only the data sectors which are currently being used are copied. Significant time-saving if the master (source ) memory media is only partly filled with user data. If the target memory media has already been used, some of the unused blocks may still contain old data. For maximum benefit, the data on the source memory media should not be fragmented. Short image copy is currently only available for FAT12 and FAT 16 file systems.
The copying speed is nearly eight times faster than previous altec CopyStations. For example, copying of eight PC Cards with 512 MB each takes about 2.5 minutes (the speed is dependent on the brand and model of memory card).
Typical markets for programmable storage media
Data required periodically by field workers can be copied to memory media and distributed to the employees.
For marketing and
Programs and data from the sectors of mechanical engineering and medical technology can be copied to memory media for use in automation, control and laboratory equipment
The marketing possibilities for storing music, audio books and videos on memory media are increasing steadily due to the drop in price of the media.
Mobile memory media are increasingly used to store games and software.
Memory media with maps and software for Pocket PCs und navigation devices can be programmed with our CopyStations.
