Discontinuation Notices

Panasonic endeavors to provide our customers with the highest quality and most technologically advanced components currently available in the commercial marketplace. As technology advances, it sometimes becomes unfeasible to continue production of outdated or older technology components.

Should you find that a component you are currently using has been discontinued, please review the discontinuation notice for possible (if any) replacements.
