DEXIS PCMCIA PC Card Product Deployment
DEXIS primary digital X-ray devices use a Type II (ie. 5mm thick) 16-bit PCMCIA PC Card as the interface to host computer systems. For notebooks with PCMCIA PC Card slots, this isn't a problem. For desktop systems, DEXIS only recommends and supports Elan PC Card readers. The DEXIS System Requirements document, under the PC Card Reader heading, lists the following readers: Elan P423 [PCM-CR-PC2IF2 -(B/W)] internal with full height PCI Card Elan P424 [PCM-CR-PC2EF] external with full height PCI Card Elan P314 [PCM-CR-PC1ELF] external with low profile PCI Card

Other PCMCIA PC Card Reader options
DEXIS only lists 3 of Elan's PCMCIA PC Card readers on their list. Since all Elan readers use the same circuitry and PCI to PCMCIA PC CardBus bridgechips, many customers have experienced successful deployment of other Elan PC Card readers on their DEXIS installations without any problems. Check with DEXIS for their policy on supporting these readers. FREE SHIPPING

Synchrotech has several large DEXIS integrators utilizing our PCMCIA PC Card readers based on the RICOH chipset. However, we only recommend this for end users with enough technical knowledge to support themselves, as neither DEXIS nor Synchrotech will do so. In other words such installations are known to work, but unsupported. Please see the PCI to PC Card overview section of our site for our whole range of available PCMCIA PC Card Readers.
