Most traffic signs in the United Kingdom are designed using a system written entirely in PB/Win. SignPlot replaces expensive CAD tools to automate the complicated sign layout and spacing rules required by the UK Traffic Signs Regulations. In addition to producing drawings and various formats of export file, it is used to help manufacture signs. SignPlot has been supplied to many hundreds of different organizations and is run on well over 1000 computers throughout the British Isles. A version for Greece is also available. P.O.A. Free evaluation CD available.
Software for designing traffic sign supports and foundations to European standard EN 12899:2007. It takes account of the appropriate wind load (which is determined by the software for locations in UK and Ireland) and contains the necessary data for most steel and proprietary supports used in Europe. It checks the requirements for passive safety (crash friendliness) to EN 12767 and will determine the spacing of sign face stiffeners for a wide range of substrate materials.

Computerized Radiation Scanners
Computerized Radiation Scanners (CRS) manufactures a radiation beam scanner that measures the characteristics of high energy therapy treatment devices used for treating cancer. Measurements are made in either a water phantom or on film. The scanner itself is mechanical device that moves a sensor probe in 1, 2 or 3 axis. If used in water, the probe is either an ionization chamber or a diode capable of detecting radiation. Film is scanned using a small laser as light source and a diode detector. The mechanical parts uses motors to move the sensor. The motors are driven from electronics controlled by a PC, programmed using PowerBASIC Console Compiler. The output from the sensors are amplified and converted to digital data used as input to the PC and PB/CC. The transmission for both output and input uses UDP/IP working at 100MB/sec. An embedded Rabbit 3200 computer is used as an interface in the electronics unit.
UCalc Fast Math Parser
UCalc Fast Math Parser allows programs to evaluate math expressions that are defined at run time. What distinguishes it from similar components is rapid calculation speed, as well as ease of implementation, flexibility, and sturdiness. It was compiled entirely with PowerBASIC into a standard DLL, which has allowed users of Delphi, Visual Basic, various C++ and FORTRAN compilers to also take advantage of this speedy component. $450

DDOC Print and Preview
32-bit, thread-safe, ddoc Print and Preview Engine. With about 200k of overhead and run-time requirements, this small package gives the windows programmer a very easy to use print and/or preview API. It's callable from any 16 or 32-bit program, and can be used to create professional output on either the screen or the printer. Use the same code to both print and preview any document; just set one flag letting the engine know whether you want to print or preview. Preview documents can be manually or programmatically emailed to recipients via SMTP or MAPI - the end user receives a viewable, printable, formatted preview screen with no run-time installation required. PB/DLL source code included. $25.00

The application displays and allows the user to “surf” car data collected via a vehicle’s OBDii diagnostic port. The data includes engine RPM, engine temperature, air/fuel mixture and many more. Data is collected on a very small device with on-board data storage, so no connection to a computer is required. The device can collect and store 2 hours of data before requiring a data download. The main application was written in VB.net, but the more time-sensitive operations that include communication with USB hardware and encryption routines were all done in a PowerBASIC DLL (PB/Win 8).

Ocean d.o.o.2000 Maribor
The OCEAN2006 structural analysis package is a finite element program for linear elastic analyses and dimensioning of plates, plane frames and shear walls. OCEAN2006 and its user-friendly graphic environment were written with PowerBASIC for Windows. It has three modules: Plate Bending Problem (MORJE), Plane Frame Analysis (OKVIR) and Shear Wall Analysis (SWALL). Some of these sub-modules perform instantaneous reinforcement dimensioning. OKVIR enables detailed finite element procedure that enables students to gain a thorough understanding. Total loads for specified loading cases are combined using EC 2 by default or by any user defined load factors in post-processor in reinforcement calculations. The methods of analyses and the frontal solution algorithm are completely transparent to the user, as the input is entered through the mouse driven pre-processor menu. There is no numerical input; the mesh generation is automatic using a mouse for the generation of substructures on the basis of DXF format created in architectural design. $800

Zen Monte Carlo Simulator
The Zen Monte Carlo Simulator is a professional software product for chance evaluation, risk analysis and validation of mechanical trading systems. Technically, it is a lean and very fast Win32 implementation of the well-known Monte Carlo Simulation method. German and English versions are available, as well as an additional Windows DLL component. The two substantial functions are system simulation and data simulation. In the context of the system simulation, available systematical test results are used by a Monte Carlo Simulation stress test. Thus, qualitatively more valuable results concerning the profits, but in particular also concerning expecting account drawdowns are achieved, as this would be possible with conventional linear systematical tests. The data simulation makes it possible to generate synthetic, artificial data, which can be used again for additional alternative systematical tests and the data simulation thus delivers a valuable contribution for validating mechanical trading systems.
