Overview

Vehicle-Mounted Computing for Tough Environments

The Guardian combines high-performance computing power and rugged design to make it ideal for tough environments that require 24-7 reliability.

Its small form-factor makes for better driver visibility and the optional keyboard caters to those applications with heavy data entry requirements. Adding to its versatility, the Guardian can also be used in fixed-mount applications, going where conventional PCs can't go.

Warranties

AML products are warranted against defects in material and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of one year from the date of purchase. The obligation of AML under the Standard Factory Warranty is limited to furnishing labor and materials necessary to return the product to its normal operating condition, or to replace the unit, at AML’s discretion, and only on a “to factory” basis. This limited warranty does not extend to any product which has been modified, misused, abused, or incorrectly installed.

An Extended Warranty REPLACES the standard limited warranty, and provides for the following additional benefits.

  • Three years of coverage from the date the product ships from AML.
  • Covers failures as a result of normal wear and tear (not abuse).
  • Covers firmware upgrades.
  • Four (4) business-day turnaround, excluding time in transit, when RMA number is properly marked on the outside of the box.
  • Standard return freight (FedEx ground) included.

The Extended Warranty may be purchased anytime during the term of the standard limited warranty with the start date retro-activating back to the date the product shipped from AML. The Extended Warranty is not an extension of the standard warranty, but instead replaces it. The start date of the Extended Warranty is the start date of the original warranty. Note that the Extended Warranty does not cover products that have been subjected to misuse, neglect, improper installation, or that have been modified or used for purposes other than what they were intended.

An Extended Warranty Plus may be purchased for eligible products, as denoted on the product warranty chart below. An Extended Warranty Plus REPLACES the standard limited warranty, and provides for the following additional benefits.

  • Three years of coverage from the date the product ships from AML.
  • Covers the failure of internal components as a result of normal wear and tear.
  • Covers failure of external components regardless of fault. Generally this includes the case, LCD displays, keypads, overlays, lenses, and exposed connectors. Note: This does not include the replacement of internal components as a result of abuse or excessive wear and tear. Printed circuit boards, scan engines, and other electronic assemblies are not covered if they are physically damaged.
  • Covers firmware upgrades.
  • Four (4) business-day turnaround, excluding time in transit, when RMA number is properly marked on the outside of the box.
  • Standard return freight (FedEx ground) included.
