206 Series Multi Functional SPST 8 Position Through Hole DIP Switch
CTS 206-8 - Product Specification
Due to a worldwide shortage of raw materials include plastic resin material, CTS is taking the proactive approach to qualify and phase in 2nd source suppliers to secure supply and maintain production activities without breaks in supply chain. The alternative materials will be of the same type and grade as the current materials such that CTS is confident that the fit, form, and function of the products will remain the same.
Description of Change: Due to a worldwide shortage of raw materials include plastic resin material, CTS is taking the proactive approach to qualify and phase in 2nd source suppliers to secure supply and maintain production activities without breaks in supply chain. The alternative materials will be of the same type and grade as the current materials such that CTS is confident that the fit, form, and function of the products will remain the same. Update 27 April 2021: Additional resin materials have been added to the 2nd sources list due to worldwide material volatility. Reason for Change: Worldwide Supply chain material shortage of plastic resin
Description of Change: Marking method change on selected dip switch models. CTS currently supplies dip switches of 193, 194, 195, 204, 206, and 208 using ink stamp marking. CTS has already been supplying other dip switches models that use laser marking to the general market for several years. Reason:CTS is committed to continuous improvement of products and processes. This marking method change will reduce impact on the environment and to reduce the use of chemical solvents impacting the health of our employees. As such, CTS will change the marking method on the remaining switch models noted from ink stamp marking to laser marking. The new laser marking will have a slight change in visual appearance. Implementation Date: May 4th, 2020
