What is the replacement part number for bluetooth dongle, TCSWAAC13FB?

Issue:
Customer wants to connect to Altivar drives using Bluetooth.
It currently shows obsolete in Q2C and tells customers to contact Product Support.

Product line:
Altivar 312, 32, 61, 71, 630, 930, 320

Environment:
all

Cause:
Part number was obsoleted in the system on Feb 9, 2017.

Resolution:
The end of commercialization of TCSWAAC13FB was on December 31st, 2015.

The proposed replacement is TCSEGWB13FA0 but this is a WIFI interface.

The Universal automation Wifi Interface (wifer - TCSEGWB13FA0) can be used as a replacement but the wifer can only work with Ethernet IP/ Modbus TCP but the Bluetooth interface worked with Modbus serial link.  So for the drives and soft starters who do not have Ethernet IP/Modbus TCP as an option, this would not be a viable solution.  If the Bluetooth interface was being used to connect to SoMove on the units without Ethernet IP/Modbus TCP as an option, they will now have to connect with a cable.
