The new version 1.0 of the PRODAVE WIN 64R software is now avail-           

able. PRODAVE WIN 64R provides functions for the data exchange              

with SIMATIC S5 via RK512 standard computer link or 3964(R)                 





   - CPs and CPUs that are based on the 3964(R) protocol or the             

     RK512 standard computer link. These are e.g. CP 524/525,               

     CP 544, CPU 928B (RK512) and CP 523, CP 521 SI, CPU 944,               

     CPU 945 (3964R procedure).                                             

   - MS-DOS from version 3.x onward and WINDOWS V3.1.                       

   - PG7xx or AT compatible PC with 640 Kbytes main memory and              

     RS 232C (V.24)/TTY interface.
