rx1600 new processor (REPLACEMENT or EXCHANGE...?)

Hi Folks,

We are buying a new processor for a rx1600. The part has the following numbers associated:

1GHz CPU (from the Operation and Maintenance Guide)
----------
REPLACEMENT Part Number: AB220-67001
EXCHANGE Part Number: AB220-69001

Since both P/Ns are the same hardware (but with a price difference of about 50%), what is the real difference between them?

Thanks a lot for your help,

Hi,

The Exchange PN is meant for a new part which is obtained against the return of the defective one.

The Replacement PN is meant for a new part order. The exchange of defective or old part is not followed here.

Refer this link.

With this, the price difference could be understood.

Sergio,

given the age of the RX1600 product, it might still be under warranty and you should have no costs. Pls check your purchase date/invoice.

Don't forget to update the system firmware BEFORE changing processors. Some of the newer ones need newer firmware, and won't boot otherwise.
