MRC Eclipse Mark IV Controller Upgrade

As the Original Equipment Manufacturer for the MRC Eclipse product line, our team of engineers developed a controller upgrade, the Epoch, for the MRC Eclipse Mark IV platform.

The Epoch is based on a state-of-the-art workstation running a Linux Operating System. The Epoch is now standard on new Mark IV systems and is also available as a retrofit to existing Mark IV. The controller employs a PCI board which uses the same Industry Pack (IP) modules and interface ribbon cables as the previous controller.

This new controller not only replaces the obsolete Mark IV 68K HI computer, it eliminates the 7-slot VME chassis, PM controller, SECS GEM Computer, X-terminal computers and networking devices which have all been integrated into a single computer platform.


  • Powerful single-platform system with integrated SECS/GEM subsystem
  • Industry-standard and high-density I/O components
  • Interactive easy-to-use software with:
    • Animated graphical system overview
    • Process control set-up
