Rigel Medical 24 Month Warranty Statement
Rigel Medical provides a standard 12-month manufacturer’s warranty against breakdown during
normal use. This warranty can be upgraded to a 24-month warranty (terms and conditions
apply*). Problems caused through misuse, damage, fair wear & tear, consumables and
accessories are excluded from standard warranty. Such components found to be being used in
excess of their manufacturer’s operating recommendations are also excluded. Shipping to an
authorised service centre is the responsibility of the sender.
*Terms and Conditions of 24 Month Warranty
The Rigel product must be registered with Rigel Medical within 30 days of purchase to be eligible
for the extended 24-month warranty. Instruments must be returned to an authorised service
centre complete with proof of purchase within 13 months of purchase for calibration at the current
rate. Any items returned for calibration outside of the 13 month period stated above may not be
eligible for the second 12 month section of warranty. The second 12 month section of the
warranty begins at the expiry of the initial 12 month period, not when the unit is calibrated.
Details correct at time of going to print. The manufacturer retains the right to make amendments
to the above terms and conditions without prior notice.
Calibration Statement
The Rigel Uni-Pulse Defibrillator Analyser is fully calibrated and found to be within the specified
performance and accuracy at the time of production. The Seaward Group provides its products
through a variety of channels; therefore it may be possible that the calibration date on the
provided certificate may not represent the actual date of first use.
Experience has indicated that the calibration of this instrument in not effected by storage prior to
receipt by the user. We therefore recommend that the recalibration period be based on a 12
month interval from the first date the unit is placed in to service.

published specifications. Any application outside of these specifications or any
unauthorised user modifications may result in hazardous conditions or improper
operation.
Operation - The Rigel Uni-Pulse Defibrillator Analyser is designed for use with
Defibrillators and Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) only.
Operation - Refer to the Device Under Test (DUT) manufacturer operating instructions
to
ensure safe operation whilst analysing the DUT.
Safety - Ensure that only accessories supplied by the manufacturer or accessories that
meet the manufacturer’s specification are used.
Safety - Use extreme caution when working with voltages greater than 30 Volts.
Safety - Where safe operation of the Uni-Pulse is no longer possible it should be
immediately shut down and secured to prevent accidental operation.
It must be assumed that safe operation is no longer possible:

Charge Time
Measurement is initiated by pressing the function key and simultaneously charging the
defibrillator. Charge time is recorded after the defibrillator has discharged across the 50Ω load.
Discharge Waveform Output
Stored
Waveform is captured onscreen and stored in
memory for download/print.
