@normandaris: I have to post a photo of my office for you to have a better understanding about how it looks, I tried to upload a picture but it is not working.

Email the picture to me at max.maxfield@ubm.com and I'll sort it out and make it so everyone can see it (I can;t wait to see it)

I have to post a photo of my office for you to have a better understanding about how it looks, I tried to upload a picture but it is not working. Our manager came lately with a lot of interesting ideas like buying new postage meters and even re-decorating our office with a futuristic design, all of our clients are amazed by the design and told us we have the best looking office from town.

@_hm: It is all pneumatic PID controller. Air is supplied at 15 to 30 psi. You can set P, I, D value for tunning the loop.

Wow -- very, very cool -- thanks for sharing...

## Let's make a deal...

Does it have a paper tape reader/writer and/or a punched card reader/writer?

Can you email me at max@CliveMaxfield.com?

@Sylvie....how about a photo or two Sylvie?  I'm sure Max will post them if you can't.  (you could get in a shameless plug for Atmel as well :-)

@Max: No. It is all pneumatic PID controller. Air is supplied at 15 to 30 psi. You can set P, I, D value for tunning the loop. I worked for Taylor Instruments Inc, Rochester and they manufactured them. As I understand, some organization currently do make them. They are very good for class I hazardous environment. Some pics for them:

Working at Atmel is a bit like being a kid in a candy store in terms of the weird and wonderful stuff I can steal, er, borrow to decorate my desk with. I started small... with a handful of colorful touch sensor boards nabbed from the 4th floor. I then pilfered an AVR man action hero from the creative lab (it is AMAZINGLY awesome and very hunky). Soon after I added a rather exotic looking AVR Dragon board to my collection, a couple of Arduino starter kits, some printouts of the infographics I've designed (on canvas they look super cool), some hexbugs... a half eaten bar of chocolate.

Still doesn't beat the electronic PCB shoe I used to have on my desk at EE Times... but oh well!

@_hm: I love pneumatic PID controllers

I don't know if I'v ever seen a pneumatic PID controller per se, but I guess that depends on what we're actually talking about -- do you mean an electronoc PIC controller that controls a pneumatic system -- or do you mean the entire controller implemented using pneumatic techniques?

I have my first big digit digital clock of 1981 still clocking at main entrance. I have all my Elektors and those projects stored in various boxes. I love pneumatic PID controllers and analog sample and hold.
