Availability of IRTrans Devices
As widely known the availability of electronic parts and components has been very limited for more than 2 years now. Some parts (especially microcontrollers) have lead times of more than 2 years or are not available at all. Available components have seen price increases of 5 or even 10 fold. Therefore we are very happy that we have had stock of all IRTrans devices so far.
For the year 2023 we have already bought or preordered enough components to be able to keep stock of all IRTrans devices.
To be able to keep the ability to deliver all devices we had to redesign some devices to use new plattforms (Microcontrollers). This has been a considerable amount of work and also includes costly recertification (CE and FCC) of the new devices.
Therefore we had to, for the first time ever in 20 years, increase the prices for the IRTrans devices. Despite the difficult conditions we have been able to limit the increase to less than 10% for most of the SKUs.
