The Network 8000 Conversion Service is a powerful system that can analyze the controller logic in a GCM and the Monitor Screens in a Signal system and recreate the graphics and control logic into one or more Niagara R2 UNC and Enterprise Server stations.
The system really does two interrelated conversions:
- It takes the device and logic block information from a GCM and reproduces it in a UNC station.
- It takes the Monitor Screens from a Signal system and creates the background GIF file and GxPage in an Enterprise Server or UNC station.
A conversion project can include one or more GCMs and a Signal system, in which case the conversion process also links the points on the generated screens into the control logic in the generated UNC station. The Conversion System can also work on a GCM or Signal system without the other.
