See Benderlink for Pines Software Maintenance Plan
| Benderlink for Pines is software that connects PINES TS-2000 controls with Eaton Leonard Vector Laservision measuring centers. |
It essentially makes a TS-2000 control appear to be an Eaton Leonard PREMIER control to a Vector Laservision measuring center.
TS-2000 Control to Vector 1 Laservision
|| The software installs directly on the operator station of the Pines TS-2000 controls. It is designed to interact directly with the control. The designer of the TS-2000 included a "Laservision" button that loads and calls to Benderlink for Pines.|
The protocol used is the Velog/El-2000/Premier protocol - so the software is compatible with Eaton Leonard Vector Laservision out of the box.
Benderlink Ethernet Module for PINES
Version 2.0 - Plug-And-Play Compatible with Vector Laservision
| Version 2 is designed to communicate using the standard Eaton Leonard Velog, EL-2000, and Premier protocol. This protocol is available on every Eaton Leonard measuring center.|
This version makes any PINES bender answer as a Velog, EL-2000, or Premier control.
Both STANDARD and EXTENDED protocols are handled. The Extended protocol is intended for multiple radius benders.
Version 1.0 (Retired)
| Version 1 of Benderlink for Pines communicated with Laservisions using the ATT protocol. The ATT protocol was a special protocol that required customers to purchase and install an upgrade to the Vector Laservision. Eaton Leonard referred to this as a "Competitive Bender Interface" because it was designed to grant competitors the right to use the measuring center through license charges.|
This CBI kit was costly and time-consuming for the customer. Version 2 of our software addressed this issue.
