A Problem Area of HECC80/3 Type Controls was the CRT Display (Cathode Ray Tube) that was used to Display Information to the Machine Operator.
CRT's are Old Technology that was Invented all the way back in the 1800's,
and have Many Deficiencies that affect Modern CNC Control.
-- Heavy & Bulky
-- Make Much Waste Heat that can effect both CNC-Control & CRT-Reliability
-- Generate Hi-Voltages from 10,000 to 20,000 Volts causing Shock Hazards
-- Hi-Voltages Arc into Cables feeding back to Control causing Circuit Board Failures
-- Hi-Voltages can generate X-Rays that present a Health Hazard
-- CRTs are Obsolete and Production of New Replacement CRT's has largely Ceased
-- Displays are often Distorted, Wavy, & Fade In & Out with Vibration, Temperature, Etc.
-- CRT's were mostly Poorly-Made in the Orient, are Not very Reliable, and are
Difficult or Impossible to get Parts & Schematics for to Repair.

This LCD Display is a Direct Bolt-In Kit that requires No Modifications to your Control.
1 -- Unbolt and Remove your Old CRT Assembly from HECC80 Control.
2 -- Remove Old CRT Data Cable that goes to CRT Controller Board in Slot #8.
3 -- Some Old CRTs also had Power Cables, remove these Cables if Present.
4 -- Bolt In the New LCD Display to HECC80 Control.
5 -- Plug-In New Data Cable from LCD to the Same CRT Controller Board in Slot #8.
6 -- Plug-In New Power Supply in AC Power Strip, and Plug-In Power Cable to LCD.
