Default Perkin Elmer Lambda 6

Hey all,

We have a Perkin Elmer Lambda 6 spectrometer and the hard drive has
died. Sadly, we've lost the software for it and Perkin Elmer no
longer supports this machine. Does anyone out there know where I
could find new software for a machine this old?

The Lambda 6 (and Lambda 4) were manufactured by a company that PE

It is my understanding that the IEEE-488 interface was never
implemented correctly (major handshaking problems) on that machine and
there is no practical possibility of new software. PE's response to
this sad state of affairs was "we only guarantee performance on the
computer sold with it" or something to that effect when we looked into
this years ago.

When looking for a new machine, I suggest you by a new PE Lambda or
possibly Varian Cary 1-5 and newer. The Lambda 4/6 were not made by
the same factory as other Lambda models, by the way. Avoid Cary 2300
series machines too!! I cannot recommend Shimadzu and Hitachi
(marketed by Digilab).

OR you can always find a 286 computer identical to the one that came
with the instrument and take out the hard drive and then find a
service to recover the data. Heck, at least it wasn't CP/M!!!!
