What is the replacement part number for bluetooth dongle, TCSWAAC13FB?

Customer wants to connect to Altivar drives using Bluetooth.
It currently shows obsolete in Q2C and tells customers to contact Product Support.

Product line:
Altivar 312, 32, 61, 71, 630, 930, 320


Part number was obsoleted in the system on Feb 9, 2017.

The end of commercialization of TCSWAAC13FB was on December 31st, 2015.

The proposed replacement is TCSEGWB13FA0 but this is a WIFI interface.

The Universal automation Wifi Interface (wifer - TCSEGWB13FA0) can be used as a replacement but the wifer can only work with Ethernet IP/ Modbus TCP but the Bluetooth interface worked with Modbus serial link.  So for the drives and soft starters who do not have Ethernet IP/Modbus TCP as an option, this would not be a viable solution.  If the Bluetooth interface was being used to connect to SoMove on the units without Ethernet IP/Modbus TCP as an option, they will now have to connect with a cable.
