The ongoing supply chain slowdown can turn normally dependable vendors into the sole source of trouble. When a single missing part threatens to halt production, Schaffner comes to the rescue with a strong alternative.
Luckily, an alternative was just around the corner. Through a sales rep, Schaffner Engineering Manager Dave Armitage caught wind of the impending halt in production and talked to the laser company’s engineering team to get the specifications.
Dave pinpointed the functional equivalent in Schaffner’s catalog as the FN2090-30-08 — a very high-performing multi-stage power line filter.
Good News from Dave
He called with good news for the engineering team: Schaffner had secured a sufficient supply in its distribution network.
Not only that, but Schaffner’s high-quality filter would also provide better attenuation performance than the one they had been using. And the price? About the same.
During these uncertain times, some experts advise that product engineering teams should revisit their approved vendors list (AVL) and make a renewed comparison with the competition.
If you need help finding a functional equivalent — or possibly something even better — do not hesitate to contact the knowledgeable product experts at Schaffner.
MORE POWER TO YOU.
