Honeywell Announces EOL Notification 70 Series Computers
Honeywell Sensing & Productivity Solutions (S&PS) has announced the End of Life (EOL) of the 70 Series Ultra Rugged Mobile Computers with UMTS Radios and those with Flexible Network Radios. The discontinuations are due to the limited supply of Gobi radio modules and the accelerated use of critical components.
The availability of the discontinued SKUs and configurations are dependent on existing inventory levels. No radio replacement is planned for the 70 Series flexible radio SKUs, thus once they are unavailable users are advised to refer to UMTS or CDMA SKUs. A detailed timeline of all the dates of discontinuation are outlined below. Some dates have already come into effect and with completion of all services set for December 2020.
As well, full comprehensive contracts are no longer eligible for renewal and have been replaced by limited comprehensive coverage. Honeywell will continue to provide technical support, software updates and hardware maintenance on discontinued hardware and software for the life of the existing warranties and service contracts. Honeywell is planning to offer retired SKUs built with refurbished UMTS radios, which will be manufactured with new components.
