KBD card slot to USB conversion
As technology progressed, Picanol decided to upgrade the keyboard display (KBD) to a version with a USB connection for all types of user access to the display. It was no longer necessary to keep several cards with different functions as they were all replaced by a single USB key. Since August 2013 all new Picanol machines have a USB connection. And because the cards were no longer available, a retrofit solution for existing machines was introduced at the beginning of 2014. Besides the technological advantages of USB connectivity versus cards, the USB technology is a far more standard and universal product. This assures availability of all components now and in the future.
The conversion is available for all Picanol machines produced since the OMNI and GAMMA generation (except OMNIjet & GTXplus).
