Building a Control PC for Barrett products

You should choose an operating system based on the type of PC hardware you have. The Shuttle PC and the Travla C137 PC shipped with either a Janz or esd CAN card. Newer WAMs with embedded PCs ship with a Peak CAN card. If you are ambitious, you can use your own PC and CAN card.
