The Remote Panel Programs allow accessing the
functions of the Allen Datagraph robots (i.e. cutters) from
the computer instead of the front panel of the machine. The
Remote Panel programs include the firmware for the your machine.
Allen Datagraph recommends that if you are not having any
problems with your robot that you do not upgrade your firmware.
Only install the Remote Panel Program. You should only update
the firmware after consulting tech support. The build number
of the Remote Panel Program must match the build number of
the firmware in your robot. You can find the firmware build
number of the firmware on your robot by installing one of
the builds, then click on setup -> main menu on the installed
program. If the build numbers do not match down load and
install the correct remote panel. If you need older versions
of the remote panel please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
to request the remote panel program you need.
