Our load cells are calibrated in our facility under optimal environmental conditions. The accuracy and other specifications in our data sheets, catalog, website and quotations are provided for the sensor as calibrated in our facility and not for the final application in which the sensor may be used. The sensor performance may change from specified accuracy values depending on the particular method of use and the environmental conditions under which the sensor is used. Loadstar sensors assumes no responsibility whatsoever for actual performance during use and disclaims any express or implied warranty, relating to accuracy and/or use of Loadstar Sensors products in your application.
Loadstar Sensors recommends that you recalibrate the sensors every six months BUT at least once a year. If the sensor is used in continuous mode of operation for thousands of cycles per month - then we highly recommend that you recalibrate the sensors every quarter for optimum accuracy and performance.
A nonrefundable analysis charge of $150.00 will be made on each out-of-warranty product returned to Loadstar Sensors for repair. Loadstar Sensors will provide a repair quotation based upon the analysis. The $150.00 will be applied towards the repair cost of the instrument/transducer. If repair is not required, the instrument/transducer will be returned to the customer and any shipping charges will be billed to the customer.
The maximum repair price will be billed at seventy percent (70%) of the current catalog price.
