During training of Industrial engineering students at the University of Pretoria it was realized that no suitable micro controller system for the training of non-electronic engineers in the application of micro controllers was locally available. A micro controller system which complies with the unique training requirements of non-electronic engineers was developed. The systems were made availcdyle to the students during training and after two years in use, the design was revised and the deficiencies corrected. A software control programme was developed that combines into one, all the different programmes needed to programme the micro controller Software was also written fo r the controller which handles the communication protocol between the personal computer and the micro controller.
