TAC I/A Series

Environment

MNL-800-101

Cause

See Product Announcement PA-207 regarding a parts shortage regarding the capacitor used for memory backup on the MNL-800-101

Resolution

The MNL-800-102 is being shipped as a replacement for the MNL-800-101 until such time as the capacitor parts shortage has been resolved.

As documented in Product Announcement PA-00207, the capacitor used for memory backup power storage in the MNL-800-101 is temporarily unavailable.  The capacitor used in the MNL-800-102 does not have the same temperature rating (-13 Deg F instead of -40 Deg F).
