In the event that a product does need to be returned and/or replaced, simply contact Technical Support for an RMA number prior to sending the item back. The RMA number will be required with the part upon receipt at Plexon. Some items such as connectors, headstages and others may incur a 30 percent restocking fee. In most cases, the customer pays for the shipping back to Plexon, and we pay for the shipping of the replacement part back to you.

Due to the extreme variety of computer systems and the rate at which computer systems evolve, Plexon reserves the right to charge for the service of configuring any computer that was not purchased from Plexon so that it may work with Plexon data acquisition systems, to charge for the service of re-configuring any computer system, purchased from Plexon or not, in the event that the system disk, operating system, or major accessories have changed, or to decline to perform such services altogether. Plexon does not warrant the correct operation of and does not provide support for computer systems that have not been configured by Plexon.
