Planning Recommended

New computers no longer support the ISA buss.
Finding an ISA replacement will become harder over time
If your PC system fails, you may be down with
no immediate solution.


Flowcon cannot get more ISA systems. Because supporting PCI
requires your software to be rewritten, please allow 8 weeks.

Upgrades will be performed in the order of deposits received.


Pre-planning recommendations:

1.  Locate one or more spare ISA systems from older stock. Put one into service, proving it works, and use your current system as a spare.

2.  Keep your room clean, to prolong the life of your present computer system.

3.  An electrostatic air cleaner can double the life of your computers. It uses a permanent metal filter --  click here Air Filter

4. Budget for the PCI conversion. This is your long term solution.


Option #1:    The STANDARD upgrade

1. NEW PCI computer
