Industrial spare part substitutes are a popular solution thanks to their high reliability and low prices. They're fully compatible substitutes for original spare parts. Unlike original parts they can be customised to meet your expectations. So if you're faced with budget cuts, long delivery times, or the original part you need is out of stock, substitutes could be the solution you're looking for.
Old machines tended to use 3.5" floppy disk drives for storing data and configuring the machine itself. What happened was that you ended up with a big number of floppy disks, and as time went by some of them were impossible to read. This can be avoided by using a floppy disk drive emulator, which will replace your old floppy disk drive. The emulator enables data from your machine to be transferred to a USB drive. A single USB drive can fit several tens of floppy disks, so you have all of them in one place. What's more, USB drives are much more durable than floppy disks.
