The server housing the Old Instabase system that has been accessible from within AGi32 and Photometric Toolbox since 1999 (AGi32 version 1.11) was decommissioned on July 31st, 2015. This system has been replaced with the 3rd generation Instabase system we call the Instabase in the Cloud (IITC) . IITC has been years in planning to provide global search capability and the most current product data available.
Legacy versions of AGi32 and Photometric Toolbox software programs will no longer have access to the manufacturers’ photometry in the Old Instabase (see table below).
We understand the ramifications of this change for legacy software users. As a central location for manufacturers’ product data, we have the responsibility to make it very easy for suppliers to update their data and to provide end users unfettered access to that current product information. The IITC 3rd generation system accomplishes these goals and is a compelling reason (among many other enhancements) for end users to consider a software upgrade.
