All Icon computer clock terminals are remotely upgradeable.
They use an innovative “flash” technology which can rewrite the internal firmware.
What this means to you:
As the years go on, you normally have to throw away equipment - computers, time clocks, hard drives, hardware, etc. Icon can electronically 'rewire' the terminal for new technology.
For example: If a new daylight savings protocol (like the old one that worked better) is enacted, your machine could be reprogrammed to handle it, you would not need a new chip, or a new machine.
If a completely new operating system is released, the machine could be flashed, and not need to be replaced.
Three years ago Icon upgraded the RTC1000's from Version 1 to Version 2, by downloading an improved, faster, more feature loaded program. In 2014, Icon released another free update, more features, and once again, a faster system.
Other manufacturer's require you to buy new equipment every few years.
Not the RTC1000. Icon is Future-Proofed.
