Limited Warranty Valid Only in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico
Eaton warrants, for the lifetime of the product, at Eaton's option, to repair or replace, on a pro rata basis, directly connected equipment that is damaged due to power transients while properly connected to Eaton products offering the Ultimate Lifetime Insurance Policy. Power transients include spikes and surges on the AC power, data or telephone lines that the Eaton products have been designed to protect against, as recognized by industry standards. The following paragraphs are conditions that must be complied with before the warranty becomes valid. Failure to comply with these requirements will void the warranty.
AC Power Line Transients
To claim damages, the Eaton product must be plugged into a properly wired and grounded outlet. No extension cords or other electrical connections may be used. The installation must comply with all applicable electrical and safety codes set forth by the National Electrical Code (NEC). Except as provided above, this warranty does not cover any damage to properly connected electronic equipment resulting from a cause other than an "AC power transient." If user meets all of the above requirements, Eaton will repair or replace, at Eaton's option, equipment up to the specified value (see Ultimate Lifetime Insurance Policy Limits). No coverage is allowed for damage entering from telephone or data lines, unless they are separately protected, as described below.
Telephone and Data Line Transients
Eaton will repair or replace directly connected equipment that is damaged by transients on telephone and/or data lines only when all such paths are protected by an Eaton protection product(s) and when the AC power (utility) line is simultaneously protected by an Eaton power protection device (UPS, surge suppressor or line conditioner) with Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage. Additional telephone and/or data line connected devices downstream must have their own telephone and/or data line protectors.
Reimbursement dollar limits will be equal to that of the Eaton power protection protector. Coverage is excluded where a suitable environment for the protection device is not provided, including, but not limited to, lack of a proper safety ground. Telephone service equipment must also include a properly installed and operating "primary protection" device at the telephone service entrance (such devices are normally added during telephone line installation).
Warranties Are Null and Void When...
All above warranties are null and void if the Eaton product has been improperly installed, tampered with or altered in any way, or if the connected equipment was not used under normal operating conditions or in accordance with any labels or instructions. All claims under this warranty must be submitted in writing to Eaton within 30 days of the occurrence or the claim will not be considered. This warranty does not include damage resulting from accident or misuse, and applies to the domestic (U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico) use of these products only. Eaton reserves the right to determine whether the damage to the connected equipment is due to malfunction of the Eaton product by requesting the equipment in question be sent to Eaton for examination. This policy is above and beyond, only to the extent needed, of that provided by any coverage of connected equipment provided by other sources, including, but not limited to, any manufacturer's warranty and/or any extended warranties.
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED ABOVE, EATON MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Some states do not permit limitation or exclusion of implied warranties; therefore, the aforesaid limitation(s) or exclusion(s) may not apply to purchaser. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED ABOVE, IN NO EVENT WILL EATON BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF THIS PRODUCT, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. Specifically, Eaton is not liable for any costs, such as lost profits or revenue, loss of equipment, loss of use of equipment, loss of software, loss of data, costs of substitutes, claims by third parties or otherwise. Coverage also does not apply to connected medical and industrial equipment.
