Here’s an important message for units. There’s a shortage of KG-175D power supplies and cryptographic ignition keys (CIKs). Units that are turning in the KG-175D, NSN 5810-01-547-4520, LIN E05004, must turn in the power supply, NSN 6130-01-587-4129, PN 28-2750283-1 and CIK, NSN 5810-01-559-1366, PN 16-2749832-1.

This is required for all turn-ins, to include direct exchanges and excess. If a unit is performing a direct exchange, its replacement device will come with a power supply. This helps keep maintenance programs and assets at Tobyhanna Army Depot up to 10/20 standards.   

There are specific instructions for returning these items. See the attached PDF for guidance.
