Limited Warranty Statement
Products Covered and Duration of Warranty
This Limited Warranty of BAKKAB, a BAKKAB Safety Systems LLC Company applies to data collection products manufactured and/or distributed by BAKKAB.

Each Product is manufactured from new parts, or new and serviceable used parts (which perform like new parts). In some cases, the product may not be new and may have been previously used. Regardless of the product’s production status, BAKKAB’s warranty terms apply as stated herein.

It excludes all expendable parts.
During the warranty period, the BAKKAB Service and Repair Center will repair or replace defective parts with new parts or, at the option of BAKKAB, serviceable used parts that are equivalent or superior to new parts in performance.
This Limited Warranty extends only to products purchased from BAKKAB or a BAKKAB authorized reseller.
