End of life CIS parts notice
Last orders for one of the power supply units used in some LED displays must be placed by December 21.---
Infotec has been notified that the Power Supply Unit - SP150-5 (Infotec part L05-0021) is to be discontinued by the manufacturer, Meanwell.
This unit has been used extensively and has given good service in a range of Infotec displays supplied since 2003.
Specifically, the products affected are LED displays, with part numbers starting P1nnn or FM/QFM.
TFT products are unaffected.
It is important to note that there is no direct - mechanically and electrically - compatible drop-in replacement for this PSU.
Current Infotec FM/QFM LED displays are now being redesigned to accommodate an alternative power supply.
Manufacture of the Meanwell PSU is expected to continue for a few months yet and as Infotec has been recognised as a volume purchaser, we have been requested to advise - in good time - the total number of units required before production finally ceases. This is expected to be towards the second quarter of 2019.
If equipment under your control contains these PSUs, serious consideration should be given to ensuring you have spares stock available to support the life of the display assets concerned.
Your last orders for PSU spares must be placed with Infotec by 21st December 2018.
Infotec will retain a limited stock of PSUs, but their release will be strictly prioritised for use in selected, live warranty failure situations.
The all-round attention paid to quality by Infotec is to be used as the basis for a short film being produced as a case study for the new ISO 9001:2015 quality standard.
Following the success with passengers in showing train loading and formation information on passenger information displays at Euston station in London, Infotec has been commissioned to produce further train loading graphics for First Great Western and Virgin East Coast.
More than 100 passenger information displays are among the range of products provided for the revamped Birmingham New Street station by Infotec Ltd.
Infotec has become one of the first suppliers in the rail industry to successfully achieve certification to ISO 9001:2015 through Lloyd’s Register of Quality Assurance (LRQA) and accredited by UKAS.
Passenger information displays have been designed and manufactured by Infotec for two of Leicester’s bus stations as part of a project to redevelop public transport hubs in the city.
