Date Issued: February 11, 2020
Summary: End-Of-Life Notification
Reason: The glass used on these displays is no longer available
Impact: Neither part will be available when current stocks are depleted
Recommendation: The displays are being replaced by new parts with more efficient glass

CFAF240400C1-030TC replaces the CFAF240400C0-030SC
CFAF240400C1-030TN replaces the CFAF240400E0-030TN

The replacement parts are as close to "drop-in" as possible. There will be a difference in the initialization code.
Availability: The new displays will be available after the current stock of the displays being set to EOL are depleted
Price Change: TBA
Response: It is recommended that customers obtain samples of the new display to verify compatibility. Contact sales@crystalfontz.com.
