It's rather dramatic I know but all the same, working or not, I'm always on the lookout for more VELA equipment to document, archive, use and learn about.
Having much of the documentation, I've been able to arrive at quite a long list of items that I'm missing and where possible, I've found pictures of them.
So if you can help me in locating some of the items below, I'd be most grateful.
The VELA truly lived up to the "Versatile" part of its name. Not only was the VELA an extremely flexible data logging tool, it could also be used as the basis for a sense and control system and even as a teaching system for basic electronics and binary logic. These extra devices connected to the VELA using its digital I/O connector.
Sensor adaptor modules provided a way to connect standardised sensor modules to the VELA in a mix and match fashion providing great flexibility in the monitoring applications the VELA could be used for. With the addition of the SAM ROM for the VELA, the sensor data could be displayed by the VELA in the correct units without any extra conversion process being required.
Educational Electronics published and sold several software titles for four different hardware platforms. Software for the BBC Micro appears to be the most common and all of the archived titles are for the BBC Micro platform. Sadly, there is still a large amount of software that is missing from the archive and they are listed below by platform.
