Utilize Floppy Drive Emulator to Eliminate Outdated Floppy Drives from Your Shop Floor Equipment

Floppy to USB

Floppy Connect

Floppy Connect accomplishes the goal of replacing floppy disks on your shop floor. These floppy disks are hard to obtain and often unreliable, and with a floppy disk USB adapter, you can emulate your existing floppy disk with a multitude of other benefits. These models work with PCs and CNC machinery and there’s no modification to the equipment needed.
