Xantrex c series charge controller lcd face plate, discontinued?

 I have been searching all over the net trying to find the optional lcd readout cover plate for the xantrex c series charge controller. All that seems to be available is the CM/R  remote version. Does anybody know if the charge controller mounted version had been discontinued?
  I found ONE used one on ebay for $200.00.  Is that an indicator of the lack of availability, supply and demand scenario?

    Which in the series are you looking for. The last I saw they were still for sale but I doubt they have mechanical parts. They probably are just selling from stock as there is little demand for the old chargers. I have a few in my scrap/spares shed.

     Dave, I'm referring to the digital readout that would replace the front cover on the old Trace and Xantrex C-40 and C-60 pwm charge controllers. I have some friends in Baja who are looking for a couple of them for their system.

    I am looking for one also. They are discontinued no doubt but thought there maybe something hanging around someones inventory somewhere.

    Your best bet would be to find a used one on Ebay or Craigslist. You might find one being sold with the controller as well. Some sellers think they are solid gold though.
