FES-1

Floppy Disk Drive Replacement System

The FES-1 is a direct form, fit and function Solid State replacement for dual 8" floppy drives and dual 5.25" floppy drives used on Gould/SEL and Encore computer systems.

These drives were used on many computer models as boot and diagnostic load devices. The FES-1 replaces the older floppy drives integrating the solid state Arraid Flash Drive “AFD” with industrial grade (SLC) CF media for improved reliability and maintainability.

The FES-1 directly replaces LP/FD interface floppy drives integrating our solid state ARRAID FLOPPYFlash Drive “AFDD”

The AFFD is also available able to support and directly replace other legacy floppy drives 'plug and play'.
