Instructions for Returning Equipment for Repair

This instrument received comprehensive mechanical and electrical inspection before shipment. Immediately upon receipt from the carrier, and before operation, this instrument should be inspected visually for damage caused in shipment. If such inspection reveals damage in any way, a claim should be filled with the carrier. A full report of damage should be obtained by the claim agent and this report should be forwarded to us. We will then advise you of the disposition to be made of the equipment and arrange for repair or replacement. When referring to this equipment, always include the model and serial numbers.

The "WARRANTY", "CLAIM FOR DAMAGE IN SHIPMENT", and "RETURNING EQUIPMENT" information applies to equipment purchased directly from TDK-Lambda Americas. End users receiving equipment from a third party should consult the appropriate service organization for assistance with these issues.

Before returning any equipment to the factory, the following steps should be taken.

1. Download and complete the RMA Request form, and fax (732 922-1441) or email back to TDK-Lambda Americas. Give us a full description of the difficulty, including the model and serial number of the unit in question. Upon receipt of this information, we will assign a Return Material Authorization number (RMA) and give you shipping instructions. Units returned without an RMA number may be refused.

2. The customer shall prepay shipping charges. Equipment returned to us must be packed in a manner to reach us without damage. The shipping container must be marked with the RMA number in an area approximate to the shipping label with numbers that are easily read. All returned units that do not show the RMA number on the outside of the container will be refused. If the equipment is repaired within the warranty agreement, then TDK-Lambda Americas will pay return shipping to the customer.

3. For non-warranty repairs, we will submit a cost estimate for your approval prior to proceeding. The customer shall pay return shipping charges.
