For owners of Sperian and Honeywell PosiChek3 and Posi3 SCBA test bench machines it is urgent that you upgrade your PosiChek3 and Posi3 machines to USB communications this year – 2016, if not already upgraded. USB upgrades will not be available after December 31, 2016. The 32-bit OEM software used on the parallel port machines will also be discontinued. This includes Survivair, MSA, Draeger, Interspiro and Avon/ISI versions, and the Standard/generic 32-bit software for parallel port machines.
Translation, owners of PosiChek3 and Posi3 test benches with parallel port connections who plan to upgrade to USB “sometime” should plan on doing the upgrade this year – 2016. Avoid being backlogged by scheduling the upgrade in the first or second quarter.
Annual re-certifications of parallel port machines will continue to be provided beyond December 31, 2016. Machines that do not pass re-certification and can not be repaired will not be up-gradable after December 31, 2016.
