Obsolete Programming Controls – Honeywell – R4140 & BC700L

AUTHORIZED 7800 SERIES DISTRIBUTOR ANNOUNCEMENT OF OBSOLESCENCE OF R4140 AND BC7000L PROGRAMMING CONTROLS

Attention Purchasing and Sales

The R4140G,L,M and BC7000L are older, legacy programming controls.  It has become increasingly difficult to source components for these older, low volume controls. Therefore, we have made the decision to obsolete these products.

The BC7000L1000 is obsolete effective immediately.  Due to component supply issues, we can manufacture up to 700 units.  These will be available for purchase on a first come, first served basis.  We will take orders for these controls until October 8, 2004.   Orders can be entered directly with Customer Care, but will be approved on a first come, first served basis by Burner and Boiler Controls Marketing.  If we have reached the maximum number of controls sold, you will be notified and your order will be cancelled.

The R4140G, L and M (all identities) will be obsolete effective November 8, 2004. We are not limited to the number we can produce, but will only accept orders on these models until November 8, 2004.

REPLACEMENTS
Honeywell will be introducing a new, plug-in, universal replacement for the R4140 and BC7000.  It will be a version of the 7800 SERIES family and will only be available to Authorized  7800  SERIES  Distributors.    This  product  plugs  directly  into  the  Q520 subbase (subbase for R4140 and BC7000) with no wiring changes.  This product will be announced in October.

If you have any questions, please contact your local Honeywell Sales Representative or me.
