CS100 was cancelled in 2006 when CS200 was released.
CS100 used a mini microcontroller to handle the 100 lines needed per revolution. For data archiving it uses Microsoft Access with a limitation of 2GB.
It is not possible to upgrade to CS210 software without removing the microcontroller and connecting the kiln trigger to the scanner trigger input - this involves a non documented modification to remove the microcontroller and link the trigger input directly to the scanner:
X5/1 is scanner power and X4/1 is data and trigger.
The main long term issue was filling the database.
The system can be run in demo mode (see page 66) for jumper settings.
Historical data should be available (as long as there are no database issue) even without the kiln running).
It should be possible to temporarily view an old database file by renaming to the default name (hide current db in another folder).
