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.
