The Early Web

Here's the very first web page ACCES put online, back in 1996.
Only two months later we redesigned the page -- definitely an improvement

A few more changes have gone by in the thirteen years since our first website designs, and we're proud of that progress. But things change, and we're continuing to advance our web presence every day.

Keep checking back to see the new things happening at

How we got our name

ACCES I/O Products, Inc.

"ACCES"? That's not spelled right!

Well, actually it's an acronym.

Way back in 1987 or so, several years before we became incorporated, ACCES had a different name: Acquisition Control Communication Engineering / Systems.

As you can imagine that's a little unwieldy, so we were putting ACCES on our letterhead.

In 1992 when we incorporated, we chose to make the acronym official, and call ourselves "ACCES" -- but that name is fairly common in other parts of the world, as it is the correct spelling of "access" in french, for example.

In order to distinguish ourselves from the mere word acces, our chosen name became "ACCES I/O Products, Inc."

Still a little unwieldy, isn't it? We call ourselves "ACCES I/O" for short.
