GTS warrants the products it manufactures to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from the date of invoice. Custom products may require customer verification and acceptance that the products meet the agreed performance as described in a statement of work, quote and/or purchase order. In such cases this requirement must be specified in writing as a condition of purchase and the one year warranty period shall begin upon customer written acceptance, or when the product is placed into service, or 90 days after shipment, whichever occurs first.
Should a GTS product fail to meet its data sheet or agreed performance during the warranty period for reasons other than abuse or misuse, it will be repaired or replaced at GTS’ option. This warranty does not apply to products that have been subject to improper or inadequate maintenance, unauthorized modifications, misuse or operation outside the environment specifications for the product. All warranty returns must be authorized by GTS prior to their return.
GTS’ only obligation under this Warranty is to repair at its facilities or replace any product or part thereof that is returned to GTS within the warranty period by the original purchaser with a GTS issued Return Authorization Number and with transportation charges prepaid.
A 25% restocking fee will apply to all returns and cancelled orders. All returns must be made within 30 days of invoice date. After 30 days from invoice date there is a 100% return or cancelation charge.
Repairs to non-GTS manufactured equipment
GTS warrants materials and workmanship that GTS uses in making repairs to equipment not originally manufactured by GTS to be free of defects for 90 days from the completion of repair service. During the warranty period, should the repaired parts or materials fail for reasons other than abuse or misuse, they will be repaired or replaced at GTS’ option. GTS’ only obligation under this warranty is to replace or repair a defective part at its California facilities when the equipment is returned to GTS within the warranty period by the original purchaser with a GTS issued Return Authorization Number and with transportation charges prepaid. Should the repair require travel by GTS personnel then standard daily travel charges will apply.
Recalibration after warranty repairs
If warranty repairs cause the system calibration to become invalid, GTS will offer its calibration services on a pro-rata cost basis where the remaining period of the previous calibration will be credited against the charge for a new calibration. For example, if 10 months of a 12-month calibration period remains, then GTS will offer a new 12-month calibration service for (12-10)/12 of its standard calibration fee.
This warranty does not apply to consumable or disposable items such as, but not limited to, probe tips, probe tip holders, probe heads, IC sockets, light bulbs, air filters, etc. Consumable items are provided by GTS without warranty.
GTS does not provide warranty of any kind on products manufactured by others which may be purchased with or operated in conjunction with GTS Products. The warranty provided by manufacturers of those products, if any, shall be the sole warranty for non-GTS products.
GTS assumes no responsibility and will not accept any liability (consequential or otherwise) arising from the use of equipment or program materials, or data or information that may be obtained or inferred from said use. This includes any damages arising from inaccurate measurements and/or inaccurate interpretation of measurements.
GTS reserves the right to make changes in the design or operation of its products at any time without incurring any obligation to make those changes to products it has previously sold.
The warranty stated above is the sole and exclusive warranty and is in lieu of all other warranties expressed or implied. GTS specifically disclaims any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose.
