Update on SP Series Phase Out

11 February 2019
MEAN WELL product change notification

Sometime ago MEAN WELL commenced the process of phasing out the SP series power supplies and has since added all models to the discontinuation list.

The phase out period typically takes about 2 years, involving the following stages: 

  1. Product marked as Not Recommended for New Designs 

  1. Manufacturing lead time increased to 60 days (ADM will manage stock levels as normal) 

  1. Manufacturing lead time increased to 90 days (ADM will continue to order & stock high usage items) 

  1. Last Time Buy date announced – MOQ may increase to 200pcs (ADM will order for final stock levels) 

  1. Product Discontinued – no further orders accepted once stock is gone 

We are now advising that MEAN WELL has reached stage 3 of this process. 

Where possible, we recommend customers start migrating to the suggested newer models. 

You can look up the specifications and download the datasheets for the suggested alternative power supply by clicking on the following link:
