The series B is a bit “CardBus” card. So I get an angry call from a customer one day. Man, thats hilarious, id hate to be those techs. Of course if you had a Panasonic you’d be more worried about chipping the concrete than damaging the notebook, but I guess I covered that elsewhere: If you know someone with a series A card, maybe you can persuade them to let you try it out before you buy one.

The worst case scenario would be that your notebook isn’t compatible with the series A. Honestly for price difference I would go with a ser A unless I am missing something.
Oh, wait a minute.
PCMK A or B? – Allen Bradley –
You should probably use the series B just make sure you get series B cables. I have been doing too much driver and cable swapping.
Can you tell I’m a bit partial to Panasonic Toughbooks? Create an account or sign in to comment You need to be a member in order to leave a comment Create an account Sign up for a new account in our community. 17844 upgraded the card’s architecture to maintain compatibility with future notebooks.
I’ve got kind of a funny story about PCMKs. Don’t know much about 2K or XP. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites.

The difference 17844 the A and the B card is the A card will only support data highway at I have been connecting via a null modem cable and using the aic net driver in linx.
I did the usual tech support thing and calmly tried to walk the guy through how to properly plug the cable into the card. Also what is the difference between the A and B card? Hopefully you’d be able to sell it for what you had into it!
It is very slow and I have to connect to a panelview the is on a Rio with this SLc. Of course if you had a Panasonic you’d be more bradey about chipping the concrete than damaging the notebook, but I guess I covered that elsewhere: Man, thats hilarious, id hate to be those techs.

I am looking at purchasing one and bfadley going to post a message but I see someone already did. Register a new account. Where did this bizarre thing come from?!?!
I was going to add a comment about that little dovetail slide, if noone else did. All this is still kinda new to me, would the ser A card suite me for communicating ocmk a slc and maybe a plc 5. Miraculously, I’ve been able to carefully dig the chunks out of the card both times, so the card has survived.
We seem to no longer have boxes labelled “Series A” anymore and now have “Series B”. Data highway is a much faster way then using the serial inerface, and is my best preference for use on a SLC.
You bring up another good point, you also have to consider what the cable is anchored to! The other differences are the style of cable connector and the internal design of the card. So when he got there, we asked to see his card and cable.
