Question NovaTech D/3 Process Automation System ?

I was curious if anyone out there has any experience with the D/3 system? I really know very little about it. What type of programming language does it use? Is it considered a PLC type system or a DCS? Does anyone have any sample code I can take a look at?

I cut my teeth on the D/3 DCS many moons ago. It's been around for over 20 years and has changed ownership several times (Rexnord, TI, Banner,...).

Your best bet for info is to start here:

One of my coworkers is a former Novatech programmer. He loved it. I will talk to him about where to find the best resources and post it here next week.

D/3 was started many years ago by Texas Instruments (TI)Process Systems Division and sold in 1994 to GSE. There are still some systems out there. Programming from what a person showed me was similar to Pascal.
