End-of-Life Products – updated Jan. 1, 2018

Product Discontinuation Policy Statement

In accordance with our product EOL (End-of-Life) policy, we hereby give notice of product discontinuation in order to allow your company to update its records and make final purchases of discontinued products that are still in supply.


We recommend that you review these posted notices and notify your buyers or purchasing department so that they can place your company's final orders for discontinued products as soon as possible according to our specified End-of-Life terms and conditions.


We appreciate your understanding and will do whatever we can to minimize the impact of these changes on your company. We look forward to fulfilling your company's requirements in the years to come.

Please find below the IHSE End-of-Life (EOL) products which are no longer listed in the new IHSE price list 2018. These products are no longer available for purchase after 30th June 2016. Provided that repair components are still available, these EOL products may be sent in for repair.

The replacement products, our Draco vario extender series and Draco tera matrix switches, are in production and we expect these to be available for at least the next 5 years.

Further, we have replaced all transparent USB2.0 extenders “BXTx” style by new ones “BXUx” style and the “1STx“ style by new “1SUx“ style. Those models feature the latest ICRON technology but they are NOT compatible with the “BXTx” or “1STx” series, which you can still buy by request for existing implementations until July 1, 2016.

If you have any questions regarding the mentioned products or if you need assistance in finding a suitable replacement product, we will be more than happy to help.
