Warranty Length: 30 months from date of installation of the Goods on Buyer's solution, 24 months from the date of dispatch of Goods by the Supplier

Warranty coverage is effectively extended from previous warranties offered on Artex products.  To qualify for warranty coverage, a customer must do one of two things.

1) Provide the original packing list from Artex and/or Ulfsberg Electronics with a shipping date on it.  The warranty period expires 24 months from the date shipped on the packing list. 

2) Provide proof of installation date (Logbook entry, signed copy of the FAA form 337 the ELT was installed under, or other documentation stating such).

If the customer is unable to provide either methods of documentation, the warranty will apply for 24 months from date of manufacture listed on the ELT product label, with a 6 month installation grace period - effectively 30 months.

For any inquiries regarding warranties, feel free to contact Artex products technical support at: artexsupport@acrartex.com or by phone at USA 928-756-1615.
