Many parameters and features of the microprocessor controlled ekta™ devices can be configured during installation and/or maintenance of the systems at an AtoN site. A personal computer equipped with dedicated maintenance software called Lanserv Plus is needed for the access to programmable features of such devices.
Lanserv Plus can be used on any PC-compatible computer running the operating system MS Windows 95, 98 or XP.
