Obsolescent and phased out components

Why does EMG have to phase out components?

Products and solutions from EMG Automation represent modern engineering and technology around the world. The long-term use of all systems is guaranteed for many years thanks to the availability of support and spare parts. The limited storage life of certain components that have not been on the market for some time, however, means that EMG will no longer be able to guarantee the availability of these components after a certain point in time, despite our careful planning for the future.

The following section provides an overview of the products that are currently being phased out and the replacement solutions offered by EMG. Further information regarding the individual replacement solutions can be accessed by clicking the link for the respective product, or it can be obtained on request from our product management team (

Is your component on the list? Don't panic!

EMG products are designed to have the longest service life. If the products in your production department have been performing their duties to date without any complaints, all indications are that they will continue to do so for a long time. On the rare occasion that a defect does occur, EMG offers modern alternatives that are available for all discontinued components. Not only do these offer enhanced options in terms of their use, but they also frequently enable existing sensor components to be reused or upgraded with very little effort.
