Tesselator Graphic System
Replacement alternatives.


We are looking for replacement to our ABB operator stations that are falling apart after many years. Is there on the market any software developed for PC/Windows or Unix that can emulate Tesselator Systems?

The TessEm software products emulates the ABB (originally ASEA) TESSELATOR family of color graphic systems. It runs on a standard PC under the Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 operating systems.

For more information see the web site:

I have own all the sources to a tesselator emulator that works on a PC and under a unix (X-windows) environment. Both emulators are working in the field. The unix system was tested and runs on the sparc workstation but could work on other unix systems with little effort. The systems are runtime only i.e do not include a disply builder or symbol editor. If you are looking for tesselator spares I may know where to get hold of some of these or can get your old boards repaired

Our group has been looking at a replacement using a PC for replacing the tesselator. Unlike most of the emulators that use the origional hardware or buggy software to drive the tesselator the system we are looking at uses a server app to send and receive the data that is displayed on the screen. It can update at up to 10 times a second. The server app runs on a VAX although any system could be a server.
