How to Start Using a Systems & Components (Product Identification)
Searches are divided into those requiring a Product Identification (product ID – prefix and serial number, sometimes referred to as serial number prefix – SNP) and those not requiring a Product ID.

1. Product ID-required searches produce results that are more specific to a product.
2. Prefix only-search results apply to the entire model with that prefix.
3. No-Product ID searches permitted

Model prefixes can be found using the Select Equipment Model search
Some documents require users be given permission to access them. Those are marked with an **.

Don’t know the serial number prefix?
Use the (Find) link
