Directed Energy News: Product Discontinuation Notification

Product Discontinuation Notice

Product(s) Affected:

Dear Valued Customer,

Directed Energy, Inc. is committed to providing innovative and reliable products, and supporting them as long as possible.

We have been notified by our suppliers that the high power MOSFET device which acts as the core power transistor for each of these products will no longer be available. Due to unique design characteristics that made it a great choice for these products, there are no ‘drop in’ replacements.

End of Product Availability: Effective immediately, Directed Energy can no longer guarantee the availability of the modules listed above. Last time buy orders are being accepted and will be filled on a first come first served basis.

Product Replacements

The PCO-7110 and 7111 are replaced by the PCO-7114 Series and are electrically very similar. Note that the form factor has been optimized to improve reliability. Our application engineering team is looking forward to working with you to iron out any performance differences to help you make this transition.

The PCO-7121, PCO-7810 and PVX-2506 are currently in review for redesign but no release date is available at the time of this notification.

OEM Customers

We realize that you may be relying on these modules or instruments for use in your OEM designs. We will be contacting known OEM customers to put together a roadmap that allows you to continue your operations with as little disruption as possible as you implement the PCO-7114 Series, or we work together to develop a suitable replacement for your application.

If we have not already been in touch with you regarding OEM assistance please contact me personally and we’ll get started right away!
