Service & Repairs
If you have an instrument that requires service, please get in direct contact with our Service Manager to properly coordinate the return of the equipment for servicing. If you purchased your instrument through one of our distributors, please contact them first.
For European customers, please get in contact with our PP Systems European Support Center for assistance. See below for full contact information for our North American headquarters and European Support Center.
In many instances, we are able to troubleshoot and diagnose the problem through direct communication with you. After an initial discussion, our service manager will make the determination to either send parts for you to service your instrument at your location or to have you return the equipment to us for servicing. When returning instrumentation to PP Systems for service, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the equipment is covered by your own insurance or through the carrier (i.e. UPS, FEDEX, DHL, etc.). PP Systems accepts no responsibility for any losses incurred as a result of shipping.
The UniSpec-SC and UniSpec-DC Spectral Analysis Systems were discontinued from production several years ago and are no longer available. PP Systems will continue to support these models as long as possible (depending on parts obsolescence). In addition, we still have stock of some of the common accessories (fiberoptics, leaf clips, etc.) that can be purchased by customers. If you have any questions or require additional information please do not hesitate to contact us.
Procedure for returning instruments for repair
- Contact PP Systems to alert us about your plans to return equipment for service/repair. We will provide you with a Case Number for reference purposes and instructions on how to return your equipment to us for service and repair. Please be advised that PP Systems must receive a formal Purchase Order (PO) or credit card information (MasterCard or Visa) from the customer prior to the return of equipment after service. If required, we can provide an estimated quote/proforma invoice upon request.
