Advantech hardware products are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship. If Advantech receives notice of such defects during the warranty period, Advantech shall, at its option, either repair or replace hardware products that prove to be defective.
DURATION AND COMMENCEMENT OF WARRANTY PERIOD:
The warranty period shall commence on the invoice date. For Advantech equipment the standard warranty period shall be two-year parts and labor.

All Non-Advantech products will be covered by Advantech for one year. After one year, Advantech does not take responsibility and owners should contact Third Party Manufacturers for warranty service and provide model numbers and serial numbers of the Third Party item.
Non-Advantech products sold within assembled Advantech systems:
All Non-Advantech products supplied within assembled systems by Advantech Service Centers will be covered by the Advantech system’s two year warranty and shall not exceed two years of coverage through Advantech.
Third Party items include, but are not limited to, CPUs, RAM, Hard Drives, Floppy Drives, CD-ROMs, Ethernet Cards, Non-Advantech Video cards, etc. During the warranty time period, Advantech reserves the right to repair, replace, or upgrade the 3rd party non-Advantech products and / or items with either new or remanufactured condition based on availability.

RETURNING PRODUCTS FOR REPAIR:
The owner shall prepay shipping charges (and pay all applicable duties, taxes, and other such charges) when returning products to Advantech for repair service. Except for products returned to the owner from a country other than the USA or Canada, Advantech shall pay for return of products to the owner. Products shall be returned to the owner with the same level of freight service as the owner used when returning the product to Advantech for repair.
SHIPPING DAMAGE AND WARRANTY:
Damage or any loss to Advantech equipment caused by any transportation service while enroute to the customer is not considered a product defect and therefore ineligible for warranty service. All Advantech equipment is shipped FOB Shipping Point so the responsibility for loss or damage claims to transportation services is the responsibility of the purchaser. If Advantech is notified of loss or shipping damages within 5 days after invoice date, Advantech may assist the customer with filing the claim and coordinate the repair or replacement of the product with any compensation provided by the transportation company.
LIMITATION OF WARRANTY:
Warranty service shall not apply to defects resulting from:
- Improper or inadequate maintenance by owner
- Unauthorized disassembly, modification, or misuse
- Operation outside the environmental specifications of the product
- Improper site preparation and maintenance
- Improper storage or handling by owner
- Owner supplied software, hardware, or interfacing
- All warranty is voided if the Advantech warranty label or serial number is removed, illegible, or missing.
THE WARRANTY SET FORTH ABOVE IS EXCLUSIVE AND NO OTHER WARRANTY, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, IS EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. ADVANTECH SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE
