This is the control system currently in place in the tower. As you can see, it is a tangled mess of wires, some of which are exposed providing a dangerous situation to anyone performing maintenance on it. Our goal is to copy the signals that this box outputs and use them to control the bells with our own implementation.
Our implementation will be centered around a work station grade desktop computer running Microsoft Windows 7. All other hardware components will be stored nice and neat in a server rack for easy access. The green PCB board in the center is the Orgautomatech board which sends signals to each of the 50 bells.
