Extended warranties are now available for ABB standard and industrial drives. The optional three year warranty reduces risk and gives users added peace of mind. The warranty also offers optional maintenance intervals, thereby improving the opportunity for lifecycle management.
The extended warranties are sold together with the drive. Alternatively, they can be purchased separately, provided they are taken up within six months of sale. The extended warranties give customers the option of having a total warranty period for selected drives of five years.
Extended warranties are priced at 12 per cent of the list price, depending on the drive. This compares favourably with other extended warranties, which sometimes are priced at up to 30 per cent of the list price.
The extended warranties mainly cover the following models: ACS550-01 and ACS550-02 up to 400kW; and ACS800-01, ACS800-04, ACS800-07, ACS800-11, ACS800-14, ACS800-17, ACS800-31 and ACS800-37 up to 400kW. Warranty prices for other products and sizes are quoted on application.
In each case the drive must be registered with ABB, with all registration details required for the warranty to be valid. The registration form must be submitted to ABB, which will issue the certificate to the customer. Standard terms and conditions apply as for the regular two-year factory warranty.
