  RMA instructions
Warranty period Two years. Older ALIX / WRAP boards will be repaired if possible.
Marking Do NOT mark products or boxes with a pen. Do NOT apply adhesive tape (not ESD safe). Apply removable labels or post-its to a safe location, e.g. the Ethernet connectors. No serial number label, no warranty...
Fault description Do include a brief fault description (in English) with the defective product. Let us know if you need to preserve the MAC ID for software licensing. If a fault is intermittent or hard to duplicate, please be specific. We cannot read your mind.
Packing You are returning electronic assemblies, not vegetables - please pack properly. Place each board into a separate ESD safe bag (pink = static dissipative, black metallic = static shielding). Clear bubble wrap or plain plastic bags are not ESD safe, and will void the warranty. Use the original cardboard sleeves or something similar to to protect the boards from outside impact and each other.
Enclosures Please send boards only, no enclosures.
