Depreciation of ‘Drive Bay Kit Configurator’ / New part numbers for drive bay kits.
Starting August 1, 2015 the ‘Drive Bay Kit Configurator’ located at https://www.crystalfontz.com/products/select_kit.html will no longer be functional for ordering one of our Serial or USB displays (CFA533, CFA631, CFA632, CFA633, CFA634, CFA635, and CFA735) in a bracket or SLED. This functionality is being moved to the Customize and Add to Cart process when checking out. This will allow for further customization by our customers to better fit their needs.
This change will eliminate the current “kits”, but will add options not previously available such as pre-configured ATX functionality, and ALL the currently available interfaces will be orderable in a drive bay bracket or SLED.
The new part numbers will have the bracket / SLED and overlay type as a PREFIX to the configured part number. The choice for bracket / SLED to a display order will be via the cart options. Our CFA835 displays were introduced with these configuration options.
To see how the new options will look, and what the new part numbers will look like, please see one of our CFA835 parts: https://www.crystalfontz.com/cart/addtocart.php?product_id=2277&qty=1
NOTE: The SLED is only available for the CFA635, CFA735, and CFA835 products.
As part of our continuous improvement process, we are integrating the ordering of displays in drive bay and SLED kits as part of the display ordering process.
Drive bay kits in their current configuration will no longer be available.

Product Update #10607: Price change for CFA735 based parts, effective 2014-09-01
Manufacturer was changed for the micro-USB connector and microSD card socket.
As generally occurs in the process between Pilot and Production Release, product/process improvements were identified and implemented. These improvements in manufacturability are reflected in the product between hardware versions 0vA and 1v0. They do not represent a form, fit or function change.
String returned by command 1 (get HW and FW version) will reflect the new hardware version 1v0: "CFA735:h1v0,f0vB" will now be the response when queried using command 1.
If the end-user application relies on the firmware string response being the same as previous versions, it will need to be changed to accept the new response to command 1.
As product becomes available, estimated completion by Q2 2013.
