ProCAT introduced its first of many writers to follow at the 1986 NSRA convention in Boston, MA. This writer was first of its kind and the only writer which incorporated the first generation of nonvolatile memory modules thus ensuring the integrity of the notes. Furthermore, the new Stenopaq offered an instant realtime transmission thus allowing the new ProCAT realtime transcriptions software, which was also introduced at this convention, to display the testimony instantly.

This writer was based on the StenoLectric writer and it was available as a brand new unit from ProCAT or as a conversion for existing owners of the StenoLectric writers.
