Here, the individual options for RTC cards (RTC3, RTC4, RTC5 and RTC6) are described. Make sure that the hardware license for the RTC card (from Scanlab) includes Marking on the Fly.
For RTC cards, the following MOTF channels are available:

To get to the dialog, choose Menu bar → Settings → System → Card → Advanced → Driver Settings for RTC3, RTC4, RTC5 or RTC6. Enable Marking On The Fly and then go to Settings.

Figure 296: MOTF Settings for RTC Cards

Encoder Kx/Ky: Distance in x/y direction per encoder count. Example of a RTC MOTF-Kx/Ky calculation. In this calculation the radius of the encoder wheel is 50 mm and the encoder is generating 2000 pulses per track (A and B) and full rotation:

External Trigger: Allows to define an offset between external trigger pulse and the start of the job process. The offset is defined by Delay and the unit is encoder steps.

RTC3/4: Simulation must be Off. The Delay value is internally multiplied by 16 counts.

Simulate Ext Start: Allows to repeat the job automatically. The gap between the jobs is defined by Delay and the unit is encoder steps.

RTC3/4: Simulation must be Off. The Delay value is internally multiplied by 16 counts.
The TriggerMode (Mark → Trigger) must be used.
The initial job must be started with an external trigger signal on /START.
Depending on the direction of the belt, a positive or negative number must be entered.

Simulation: Encoder pulses will be simulated with a constant pulse frequency of 1 MHz.

Off: No simulation

Encoder X: Simulation in X-direction

Encoder Y: Simulation in Y-direction

If the marking is started with an external trigger (sensor), it is recommended to start the marking in trigger mode (Mark Trigger) to avoid jitter of the position.

Upgrading to a new PC for ProLase 10:

There are two kinds of laser marking systems analog and digital. Most, if not all, modern marking systems are digital, but older systems may be analog. Typically analog markers with ProLase use two PCI cards on the PC bus, a DAC card (PCIM-DDA06/16) and a Counter/Timer card (PCI-CTR05). If that’s what you have you need two things in your PC: (1) You must install a 32 bit version of Windows 10 (there are only 32 bit kernel mode drivers for analog systems). You can install Window’s 32 bit on 64 bit PCs. (2) You must make sure your PC motherboard has an 8253/8254 interval timer chip (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_8253). This chip has been on PCs since the beginning, but in the last couple of years, some motherboards do not include this chip. ProLase analog control uses this chip to control the speed of the galvos, and it must be present. Since analog systems are no longer made, and motherboards with PCI slots and the timer chip are harder to find, ProLase 10 is probably the last generation of ProLase to support analog markers. Here is a modern motherboard some of our OEMs are using to upgrade older ProLase machines. It is made by Gigabyte (model # GA-h81m-hd3), has 2 PCI slots, the timer chip, can use a modern (up to i7) intel processor and is priced around $150 (without memory or CPU).
If you have the newer digital type system it will have one card on the PC bus called an RTC card. This card is from SCANLAB and can be any version between RTC2 and RTC6. If your system is digital you can use either 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 10. Digital systems do not need the motherboard to have the 8254 chip, since the RTC card preforms all real-time galvo control, and has its own internal timers.
