Returns, Refunds and Exchanges


Only products originally shipped from Surrey Sensors Limited (SSL) or from an authorised supplier (drop-ship) will be considered for return to SSL. By a Customer requesting return of products to SSL, the Customer certifies that the products were purchased from SSL and there has been no substitution of the product from another supplier, distributor or other source of the product. Any return must be in the original packaging (if Product was supplied with packaging) and in unused condition except if approved for failure analysis/warranty evaluation by a SSL representative via a Return Material Authorisation (RMA).


Any item for exchange must be in new condition and in the original packaging (if Product was supplied with packaging). Exchanges must be requested within thirty (30) days of ship date. Defective item(s) may be exchanged/returned for the same item. Items purchased from SSL that have been used or altered and any items that have been sold as NC/NR will not be accepted for exchange.

Non-Cancellable (NC) and Non-Returnable (NR) Items

Products listed as NC/NR status are identified on the Cart Page for online orders and via Order Acknowledgement for all other orders.
