Optional Extended Warranty – 1 Year

Purchasing this 1 YEAR OPTIONAL EXTENDED WARRANTY will extend the terms of the STANDARD WARRANTY by an additional 365 days or one additional year from the expiration of the STANDARD WARRANTY. All other terms of the STANDARD WARRANTY will remain the same.

Cycle Operation values for the DSS10B, DSS20B, DSS25B, DSS35B and the ES6B devices will remain at their value as published in the STANDARD WARRANTY, except for a TWO-YEAR period. For example, for the DSS35B, the number of cycles guaranteed would remain at 5,000,000 operations, however, over two years from original date of shipment. Therefore, after the total WARRANTY PERIOD – STANDARD plus OPTIONAL EXTENDED – 1 YEAR – the cycle warranty is null and void.
