1.5
Warranty
This console carries a manufacturer‘s warranty subject to the following guidelines and limitations:
A)
Except as expressly excluded herein, Arrakis Systems inc. (“Seller”) warrants equipment of its own manufacture against faulty workmanship
or the use of defective materials for a period of one (1) year from date of shipment to Buyer. The liability of the Seller under this Warranty is limited to
replacing, repairing or issuing credit (at the Seller’s discretion) for any equipment, provided that Seller is promptly notified in writing within five (5)
days upon discovery of such defects by Buyer, and Seller‘s examination of such equipment shall disclose to its satisfaction that such defects existed
at the time shipment was originally made by Seller, and Buyer returns the defective equipment to Seller’s place of business in Loveland, Colorado,
packaging and transportation prepaid, with return packaging and transport guaranteed.
B)
Equipment furnished by Seller, but manufactured by another, shall be warranted only to the extent provided by the other manufacturer.
C)
Thermal filament devices (such as lamps and fuses) are expressly excluded from this warranty.
D)
The warranty period on equipment or parts repaired or replaced under warranty shall expire upon the expiration date of the original
warranty.
E)
This Warranty is void for equipment which has been subject to abuse, improper installation, improper operation, improper or omitted maintenance, alteration, accident, negligence (in use, storage, transportation or handling), operation not in accordance with Seller‘s operation and service
instructions, or operation outside of the environmental conditions specified by Seller.
F)
This Warranty is the only warranty made by Seller, and is in lieu of all other warranties, including merchantability and fitness for a particular
purpose, whether expressed or implied, except as to title and to the expressed specifications contained in this manual. Seller’s sole liability for any
equipment failure or any breach of this Warranty is as set forth in subparagraph A) above; Seller shall not be liable or responsible for any business
loss or interruption, or other consequential damages of any nature whatsoever, resulting from any equipment failure or breach of this warranty.
General Repair Considerations
1.6
WARNING
The console should be repaired by qualified, professional, & experienced, audio technicians ONLY. Before beginning any type of repair or
opening the console CALL Arrakis customer support for recommendations.
DESIGNED FOR MODULAR PART REPLACEMENT
The ARC series console is designed for modular replacement rather than repair. The power supply is external and plug in. The rotary faders are plug in. Most ICs are plug in, and a physical board layout is provided
with descriptions of the functions of each IC. ICs can be individually replaced to test for functionality. A small amount of disassembly is required. Diagrams on the following pages explain the required disassembly.
PC BOARD COMPONENT LEVEL REPAIR
If possible, PC board component level repair requiring soldering should be performed at the factory. In particular, replacement of slide faders and switches should be performed at the factory. If the repair must
be made in the field, then extreme care must be taken to not damage the PC board or other components. Arrakis can not warranty non-factory service.
POWER SUPPLY
The power supply is a sealed module that must be replaced in whole if there is a problem.
REPEATED EQUIPMENT FAILURES
If a specific part of the console is failing regularly, it is likely that it is being subject to unusual stresses.
Examples are;
(1) Switch or fader failurerough physical treatment
(2) Mic channel IC failurestatic discharge to mic
(3) Input op amp failurelightning, power surge, or other transient on this cable
(4) Output op amp failurelightning, power surge, or other transient on this cable
(5) Power Supply failurelightening, power surge, or other transient on the AC power line
SUGGESTED REPAIR PROCEDURES
(1) NO AUDIO OUT OF ONE INPUT CHANNEL- (Swap Cables) Be certain that the problem is in the console itself. If mic channel two doesn’t function but mic channel one functions properly, then plug the cable from
the good mic into the channel that you suspect to be bad. If the channel that you suspect to be bad now functions, then the problem is external to the console and is in the source or the wiring. This is a very fast
and easy way to test your system.
(2) VU METERS MOVE BUT NO AUDIO OUT OF THE CONSOLE- The VU meters measure the actual output of the console itself. If the meters move but no audio is present, the problem is after the console output
and is in the following signal chain. Plug a set of headphones into the output of the console and listen to the Program output to confirm this.
(3) LOUD LOW FREQUENCY HUM IN AUDIO- Many years ago this would mean a power supply failure. In today’s electronics, this is an installation problem such as a ground loop. To confirm the problem is not in
the console, remove ALL wiring from the console and connect a pair of headphones to the output you are testing. The hum should be absent. All wiring must be removed and headphones only used. A very common
problem is for an audio power amp and speakers to create the ground loop with the console.
(4) NO AUDIO OUT OF THE MONITORS- Be certain that the monitor system is not muted due to a mic channel being on or talkback being activated.
1.7
Opening the Console
WARNING
The console should be repaired by qualified, professional, & experienced, audio technicians ONLY. Before beginning any type of repair
or opening the console CALL Arrakis customer support for recommendations.
ACCESSING THE MOTHERBOARD
The motherboard is accessed from the bottom of the console. Six screws must be removed from the bottom panel to have access to the console electronics for test and IC replacement. Be careful to not scratch the console when turning the console over.
REMOVING THE MOTHERBOARD
The motherboard is attached on the top of the front panel (slide fader screws) and with screws on the bottom of the motherboard, requiring access to the inside of the console. When
replacing the motherboard, be certain to replace all of the screws so that switches and faders will operate properly.
ACCESSING THE INTERIOR OF THE VU METER PANEL
The VU meter panel is opened by removing the screw at the left and right front of the panel.
ACCESS SCREWS
Arrakis Systems inc.
Replacing Slide Faders, Switches, and other parts
Slide faders and switches are soldered onto the PC board and should be replaced at the factory if at all possible. The procedure requires proper tools, and it
can be difficult to remove the parts without damaging traces or pads on the PC board. Also, the switches are very sensitive to temperature and duration during
the soldering process and can be electronically damaged or destroyed when being soldered. If a slide fader, switch, or other part must be replaced in the field,
then extreme care must be taken.
Tools required:
1) Hand held solder sucker (stranded solder wick is not suggested)
2) Temperature controlled soldering iron with pencil tip (soldering guns should not be used)
Procedure:
1) Suck the solder from all holes until the damaged component is entirely free from the PC board. Remove the damaged part.
2) Place the new part onto the PC board. Slide faders and switches (and some other parts) ARE oriented and MUST be replaced in the correct orientation.
3) Carefully solder the new part to the PC board.
a) Clean the tip of the soldering iron on a wet sponge.
b) Tin the tip of the soldering iron (cover the tip of the soldering iron with a small amount of solder).
c) Set the soldering iron to 734 degrees Fahrenheit (390 degrees celsius).
d) Touch the tip of the ‘soldering iron’ to the junction of the PC board pad AND the component lead.
e) Immediately touch the ‘solder’ to the junction of the soldering iron and the PC board pad.
f) Flow only enough solder to fill the hole. Immediately remove the soldering iron from the part.
g) Do not keep the soldering iron on the part for more than 2 seconds.
h) Clean the solder rosin from the PC board if required. (See Note #1 below)
Note #1: Arrakis uses aqueous core (water soluble) solder that requires the solder joint to be cleaned by water after soldering. Aqueous core solder is acidic
and must be cleaned so as to not damage the PC board over time. Rosin core solder is not water soluble and requires a flux remover if it is to be cleaned. The
rosin residue however does not have to be removed for rosin core solder.
Warranty:
Arrakis can only warranty service performed at the factory. All field service is performed at the customer’s risk.

Replacing ICs
ICs must be replaced with care. Most ICs in the console are socketed so that they can be replaced.
When replacing an IC, be careful to not bend legs under the IC or outside the socket. Be extremely careful to not shock an IC or the PC board with a static discharge. In some cases, you must use a grounded arm or anklet if there is a possibility of a static discharge.
In all cases, retain the old IC because it may be found to not be damaged.

Warranty Service Procedure for the ARC console hardware
Arrakis Systems assumes that its customers have on staff (or access to) competent technical personnel and adequate test equipment.
If a product fails, Arrakis will first seek to ascertain the problem over the phone and solve it at the modular replacement level where we find the specific part(s) that have failed and repair or replace them. This is
the least expensive and time consuming solution for you. Depending on the circumstances and at our discretion, Arrakis will replace the specific PC board suspected to be at fault. If replacing PC boards does not
resolve the problem, then the console is to be returned to the factory where it will we repaired and returned to you. Repair time at the factory is normally two week days. If the customer chooses to repair the
console in the field, then Arrakis will, at its sole discretion, send replacement parts under warranty. Arrakis can not warranty labor performed in the field.
Shipping- The customer is responsible for payment for shipping to the factory. Parts returned to the factory freight collect will be refused. Return shipping over and above the cost of UPS ground will be born by
the customer. In the case of international shipments, all cost of shipping and duties are born by the customer, both to and from the factory.
Under no circumstances will Arrakis replace a defective console with a replacement console.
IMPORTANT- Under no circumstances does Arrakis take any responsibility for non-factory technical expenses.
Warranty Replacement of Parts
To have a part replaced under warranty, you must:
1) Provide a valid product serial number that is within the warranty period
2) Contact the Arrakis customer service department and describe what parts need replacement and the circumstances of the failure. (The customer service department
may require on site test by your technician to confirm the part replacement is appropriate for your problem.)
3) A Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA #) will be issued when a part s to be returned to the factory.
4) Return ALL defective parts to the factory (shipping prepaid) to the attention of the “Customer Service Departent” with a letter including your name, address, call letters,
serial number, date, and valid RMA #.
5) Parts replaced under warranty will be shipped at Arrakis expense by UPS ground. Any expense over and above UPS ground will be born by the customer.
IMPORTANT- If the defective parts are not returned to the factory within 30 days, you will be invoiced for them and it will be assumed that they do not fall under warranty.
Further customer service will be denied until the defective parts are returned of paid for.
Spare Parts
(not provided with the ARC-10 or ARC-15 consoles)
A spare parts kit may be provided with the console. These parts are provided in case of emergency failure and normal infant mortality. These parts, when used to replace
failures, are not replaced under warranty.
