Determining Series One or Series Two
Use the Series One power supply if your current power box has the terminal strip for the W8600E. The terminal strip on power boxes made from 1994 to 1997 have pin connectors not compatible with the current power supply. Thus the Series One replacement power supply also includes the terminal strip and wire harness.
If you are replacing a power supply that has an existing W8600F, then order the Series Two power supply and reuse the existing terminal strip and harness. You also reuse the small daughter card that plugs in to the power supply. These items were originally supplied with the W8600F.
If your power box has a terminal strip with nothing connected because you are not using a W8600E or W8600F, then use the Series One power supply. Otherwise the Series Two does not have the terminal strip and the old terminal strip will be left to dangle.
The W8600F was introduced in 1998 and was originally available in white or taupe, but the taupe was discontinued mid 2006. The W8600F is now only available in white.
Though the W8600E was replaced by the W8600F in 1998, the W8600E was available as a replacement part until 2004. We no longer have any W8600E left.
