Need information regarding Hartmann & Braun Card - CBC10?

Hi, I need any information regarding an old system of ABB, Hartmann & Braun/Symphony. I am working on an upgradation project and in the old system there is a card by the name CBC-10. I cannot seem to find any information whatsoever on this card. Anything ranging from purpose and functionality to I/O wiring would be greatly helpful. I have already reviewed the following specsheet but it was not very helpful.

Also is the CBC-11 card the newer version of CBC-10?

Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated!

I am not a Melody guy however: I think it is a very old 'Melody' controller which was replaced by the CMC50 or CMC60 a long time ago. Both the 50 and 60 have not been available since 2009. There was a CMC70 in 2008, but this is also not available anymore. The AC870p was used to replace these aging controllers but you'll need to check with ABB support people in your region as to the state of these.

CBC-10 is a drive control card that is already obsolete. You should consider upgrading with CBC-11. Please do crosscheck the software functions used in your application and module pin compatibility with CBC-11.
