Note
   To rebuild diskettes from image files, download the EXE file, insert a diskette in drive A: and run the EXE file. If you are rebuilding the image under Windows NT®  you must go to a command prompt and enter "FORCEDOS filename.exe to rebuild the diskette.  (Ed. It works on NT 4.0!)

Just the Facts
   The 4693 Terminal supports  DOS and  OS/2.
   The 4693 Terminals include upgradeable 386SX to 486SLC2 processors, Super Video Graphics (SVG) adapter, optional Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA) adapter support and up to 16MB (increased by increments of 2M, 4M, or 8M) of memory in the terminal. (4693-7X1 MAY take more- a 16MB SIMM was available)
   Compatible with current 4683 hardware and 4680 software.

4693 Models
       The Model 5X1 can be utilized as a controller/terminal or a terminal.  It has the capability to install two hard drives (80MB or 160MB) and/or a floppy (1.44 MB or 2.88 MB).  It may also be medialess.  It can stand alone, control terminals over a LAN, control terminals over a LAN with satellites attached, or directly attach a satellite terminal.  It has a 25/50 MHz 486SLC2 processor, ten Point-of-Sale input/output device ports, five PS/2 ports, four Micro Channel (R) feature card slots, and SVGA video standard on the planar.
       The Model 4X1 is an intelligent terminal with SVGA video standard on the planar.  It must be connected to a Model 5X1 or other controller via a LAN card in one of the Micro Channel feature card slots.  It has a 25 MHz 386SLC processor, ten Point-of-Sale input/output device ports, five PS/2 ports, two Micro Channel feature card slots, and satellite support standard.
       The Model 3X1 is an intelligent terminal without video standard on the planar.  It must be connected to a Model 5X1 or other controller via a LAN card in one of the Micro Channel feature card slots.  It has a 25 MHz 386SX processor, six Point-of-Sale input/output device ports, five PS/2 ports, two Micro Channel feature card slots, and satellite support standard.
       The Model 2X2 is a satellite terminal.  It must be connected to a Model  5X1, 4X1 or 3X1 to function.  It has ten Point-of-Sale input/output device ports and two RS232 ports.Video is not
supported on this model.

4693-741 (7S1 is Supermarket version of 741)
     486 processor support Upgradeable socketed processor 
     64MB on the system board 4 SIMM sockets
     32-bit addressing 
     32-bit local bus video 
     2.5-inch 360 and 540MB IDE hard drive support 
The dual hard drive function increases reliability of the system by providing disk backup via the second drive.  In a transaction intense environment, providing a back-up image on the secondary drive allows transaction data to be readily recovered if there is a primary disk failure.
     It has the capability to install two hard drives (360MB or 540MB) and/or a floppy (1.44MB).
     SVGA video support with 1MB DRAM 
     Supports LCD/touch adapter to attach the Retail LCD Flat Panel and Touch Display products
     10 Point of Sale input/output device ports, five PS/2 (R) ports, four MCA feature card slots

Programmable Power
   Programmable power in conjunction with next sequential instruction reduces terminal power consumption 96% by powering the machine down from full operation to "sleep" mode for an amount of time determined by the customer. When terminals are powered down, they are kept running with minimal power so that when powered backup, they do not require a complete operating system reload if storage retention is enabled.  Control is returned to the next sequential instruction. External notification, such as a modem call or pushing the mode button, also causes the 4693 to awaken.  Currently, the 4690 Operating System is the only operating system enabled to enact programmable power.

   The 4690 Operating System has an inactivity default that causes the terminal to go to sleep mode after 15 minutes of inactivity. The terminal can be brought back to operational mode within 10 seconds of becoming necessary for a customer checkout.  Assuming the terminal is placed in sleep mode for 12 hours overnight and for at least 2 hours during the day, annual electricity savings of $60 per terminal are achievable.

4690 / FlexOS
   The 4690 OS uses Novell DSG's FlexOS Version 2.32 operating system as the base.  The 4690 OS Version 1 now supports 386 mode on 386 and 486 processors.  This improves performance and memory management efficiency.  This version of FlexOS includes many quality improvements over the release previously used in the 4680 OS. (Ed. Novell sold FlexOS to IMI and I found NOTHING on their site for it.)
   The 4690 OS now supports both 286 and 386 mode operating environments, without any customer changes required (the exception being customers who may be required to re-link their applications).
   FlexOS 2.32 has improved quality, an improved console system, and an improved pipe system.  In addition, FlexOS 2.32 has several areas with increased performance.  For example, FlexOS 2.32 has more efficient use of KOSPOOL which virtually removes limits on the number
of applications supported.

Next sequential instruction (NSI) 
   The 4693 to resume operation at whatever point it was at when the command to power down to sleep mode was initiated or when a power line disturbance
occurred.  NSI is available only with 4690 OS.

Memory Retention
   Due to battery improvements in the new 4693 POS Hardware, terminal availability has been increased.  Storage retention is a function which lets terminals recover from power line disturbances. With this function on, the power supply recognizes when a power down is imminent and the processor data is saved into the RAM which is retained even when the power is lost.  When the power returns, the processor data is restored and the terminal starts running at the next sequential instruction. Memory retention saves all transaction data in the event of a  power disturbance via an optional battery.
o   Standard duration battery approx 5 hrs in a 2MB system, 4.5 hrs in a 16MB system.
o   Extended duration battery approx 25 hrs  in a 2MB system, 22 hours in a 16MB system.



4693 Front

Diagnostic LEDs
   The four diagnostic lights on the front of the machine direct the service technician to the problem area in the terminal.  The lights indicate a bad planar, a bad power supply, an overcurrent problem or an overheat problem.

Front Access
   You can slide the planar card out the front of the machine for memory or processor upgrades.  Adding or changing hard files or floppy drives is also accomplished from the front.  The only time you need to get to the back of the machine is to remove adapter cables from the Micro Channel feature cards prior to sliding the planar card out the front.
