Siemens extends 3-year warranty on power product lines
Lighting panels, busways, switchboards covered in new guarantee
Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. announced Sept. 23 it will be the only electrical distribution product manufacturer to provide a 3-year warranty included as standard on its lighting panel, power panel, busway and switchboard product lines as part of its new C3 Customer Confidence Certification program. In its press release, Siemens said, "By setting a new standard for electrical distribution products, Siemens is lowering the total cost of ownership while increasing the overall value its customers receive."
The new C3 Customer Confidence Certification program is included with the purchase of Siemens electrical distribution products. The 3-year standard warranty from shipment doubles the industry-standard 18-month warranty and covers all Siemens factory-assembled P1-P5 power panels, SB1-SB3 switchboards (including factory-installed Access power meters and TVSS), Sentron busway that ship after Oct. 1, 2009.
"The C3 Customer Confidence Certification program is a testament to the quality of our products. This industry-first warranty demonstrates that Siemens makes its customers a priority and stands behind the reliability and durability of its products. Our approach is to build quality in every circuit," says Kevin Yates, vice president, Siemens Energy & Automation.
