DCI Standard Warranty

DCI warrants that it will either repair or replace any product that fails to operate in conformity to DCI’s published specifications at the time of shipment due to a defect in materials or workmanship during the warranty period for that product, subject to the terms set forth below.

Category Warranty Period
Falcon Transmitters (15” and 19”) Three years from date of purchase or first 500 hours of use, whichever occurs first.
All Other Transmitters Ninety days from date of purchase
Receivers, Remote Displays, Battery Chargers and Rechargeable Batteries One year from date of purchase
Software* One year from date of purchase
Other Accessories Ninety days from date of purchase
Service/Repair Ninety days from date of repair

* For software products, in lieu of the warranty set forth above, DCI warrants that it will either update any defective software to bring it into material compliance with DCI’s specifications for such software, or refund the purchase price paid for the software.

Terms

  • The 3-yr / 500-hr warranty period for a Falcon transmitter is conditioned on registration of the purchase with DCI within 90 days of the date of purchase. If the customer fails to register the purchase during this time frame, the warranty period for the transmitter will instead be ninety days from date of purchase.
  • Warranty coverage for a warranty replacement transmitter shall tie back to the original transmitter(s) submitted for warranty coverage. For example, if a Falcon transmitter is owned for one year and used for 250 hours, the warranty coverage for the replacement will be an additional two years or an additional 250 hours of use, whichever comes first.
  • “Hours of use” for purposes of the Falcon transmitter warranty means active run-time hours, as measured internally by Falcon transmitters.
  • In the event of a valid warranty submission, the choice of remedy (for example, to repair or replace a defective product or, in the case of defective software, to update or refund), shall be at DCI’s sole discretion. DCI reserves the right to use remanufactured replacement parts for repairs.
  • The above warranties only apply to new products purchased directly from DCI or from a DCI-authorized dealer.
  • The ultimate determination of whether a product qualifies for warranty replacement shall be at DCI’s sole discretion.

Exclusions

  • Transmitters that have exceeded the maximum temperature, as indicated by the system.
  • Defect or damage caused by misuse, abuse, improper installation, improper storage or transport, neglect, accident, fire, flood, use of incorrect fuses, contact with high voltages or injurious substances, use of system components not manufactured or supplied by DCI, failure to follow the operator’s manual, use other than that for which the product was intended or other events beyond the control of DCI.
  • Any transmitter used with an improper housing, or damage caused to a transmitter from improper installation into or retrieval from a housing.
  • Damage during shipment to DCI.

Any modification, opening up, repair or attempted repair of a product, or any tampering or removal of any serial number, label or other identification of the product, will void the warranty.

THE FOREGOING IS THE SOLE WARRANTY FOR DCI PRODUCTS (OTHER THAN THE 5-YR/750-HR EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR FALCON 15/19” TRANSMITTERS). DCI DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, IMPLIED WARRANTY OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY ARISING FROM COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, COURSE OF DEALING, OR USAGE OF TRADE, ALL OF WHICH ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED.

In no event shall DCI or its partners’ liability exceed the purchase price for the product.

This warranty is not assignable or transferable. This warranty is the entire agreement between DCI and purchaser, and may not be expanded or amended in any way other than in writing by DCI.
