Discontinuation of FIT-295

April 29, 2019


Dear Valued Customer,

The Alpha Wire portfolio requires regular review to ensure our products continue to offer the most updated features and benefits, in addition to the highest quality.

Effective immediately, all sizes, colors, and put-ups of the FIT-295 series have entered their End-of-Life (EoL). As part of our regular product life cycle management activities, a lack of demand was identified which resulted in a product that was no longer cost effective to manufacture. The items will be available until our current stock is sold, at which point they will be offered as special part number with a 5,000 ft. to 32,000 ft. minimum order quantity.

Possible product crosses and recommendations are detailed below:

  • If the application requires AMS DTL-23053/6, then we do not have a direct cross.
  • If the application requires a general purpose HST with a 2:1 shrink ratio and VW-1, then our recommendation would be FIT-221V.
  • If the application requires a stronger/stiffer HST with close to a 2:1 ratio, then our recommendation would be FIT-300 (Ratio 2.5:1).

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact your Alpha Wire representative or channel partner.
