We have several older Van Dorn/Demag plastic injection molding machines that utilize PCMCIA SRAM cards for memory used to store machine files. We have had terrible luck with these devices. They randomly lose all data. We also have a lot of trouble storing files from the machine to a PC. Generally, the SRAM is not readable to the PC. We are exploring different options for memory. I recently purchased an adapter (PCMCIA to compact flash) and the machine will not recognize the compact flash card as readable memory. We had similar problems with our other machines that utilize 3.5" floppy drives, but we replaced them with floppy to USB emulators with great success. Is there an emulator for PCMCIA SRAM to allow storage on USB jump drive? Any ideas on how to get the machine to talk to a more dependable storage device?
