Knitting on the Passap E8000 knitting machine is done from so called sectors. A sector contains amongst other things a Technique (the instructions how to knit) plus a pattern for the front bed and a pattern for the back bed. The patterns can be optional.
Patterns can be transferred to the E800 uing Creation8 or DesignaKnit or E8000 Utility.. You cannot transfer your own techniques to the E8000 because Madag hasn't implemented an interface to transfer a techniqure. Theoretically this would have been possible if one could specify PC as the source of a technique.
The 10 sectors are stored on the flash memory module 30.730.01 which is located at the bottom of the E8000 console. The flash memory module is a user replacable part.Here is where E8000 Programmer (E8kProg) comes in.
The E8kProg box allows you to read and write the contents of the falsh memory module 30.370.01. The data in the flash memory module is stored on your (Windows) PC in a virtual memory module which is a replica of the physical flash memory module. This way you have backup and restore facilities for your flash memory module.
The software that E8kProg comes with enables you to add your own techniques toi a virtual memory module, You can copy techniques and patterns from one virtual memory module to another. All inbuilt techniques and patterns are available for your modification. The E8kProg software displays the contents of a virutal memory module on your PC. Thre display includes the sectors, techniques and patterns.
