The 4710 was purchased to satisfy MSC’s increasing demand for quality programmed microcontrollers as well as flash and programmable logic devices. In the article written by Hilmar Beine, Hinz said the company’s need for a flexible programming system in order to deliver on its “claim of providing optimum solutions” was found in BPM Microsystems’ automated device programmer.
“We were particularly interested in BPM because we found a system whose module library covered a major part of our customer’s requirements,” said Hinz. “The fact that BPM’s fully automatic programming system included universal programming modules for modules from many different manufacturers also was a bonus. Since we had extremely good experience with the first machine from BPM, it did not take much to convince us to buy a second machine. The universality of the modules is guaranteed. The controller is intuitive and easy to operate. The setup times are short. The system is accurate enough to deal with the most frequently used modules in the 0.5 mm grid, and also is suitable for other grid sizes. The most important performance features of the 4710 fully automated programming machine from BPM are impressive, and the resulting advantages are clearly evident, confirming MSC’s decision to use automatic systems.”
