PCB terminals and connectors
Products supplied are also always subject to modifications by the manufacturer. Product changes are a sign of improvements and advancing technology.
The aim is to offer you current products and solutions that comply with current requirements. For this reason, we have an active process for improving our products. As part of this process, optimisations also occur which are relevant for your products. We provide you with information about changes and any implications in the form of a "Product Change Notification (PCN)".
A PCN is generated if the fit – form – function of the product is affected:
Fit: The possibility that the product physically connects with another intended product to be electrically connected with it - So "fit" therefore clearly describes the interface of the product to a superordinate system. The relevant interface to the customer's system are usually specified by Weidmüller (in the data sheet / the WM customer drawing), especially the outside dimension.
Form: contour, size, weight and other visually perceivable parameters that describe an article from the outside. The focus lies on direct perception (visible deviations from the theoretical presentation on the product drawing) during observation and handling within the application or during proper use without disassembly.
Function: The functions ensured according to the specification (Weidmüller data sheet).
Should a product change occur, we will inform you six months before implementation and delivery of the changed product by sending a PCN.
The written document for a product change is found here with the example of an OMNIMATE POWER plug-in connector PCN OMNIMATE POWER (PDF)
After six months we automatically switch the product over to the changed variation.
