The spring of 2023 has been eventful in that the industry suffered numerous recalls on products manufactured in Asia. Many of these issues would appear to be with a shift in manufacturing plants due to COVID-19 shutdowns and quality control. Many of the challenges manufacturers experienced where/are lengthy delays in product acquisition and poor quality control.
As an example the Kantech P84/P82-WLS
wireless products showed an increase fail rate which took some time to correct via a product recall leaving little to no inventory, this is still a challenge as stocks are still in low supply causing a backlog on some orders.
The Paradox/Centaur/CDVI series of FOB's
have also suffered some availability restrictions and bottleneck on availability necessitating strategies of direct purchasing.
