PLC Product Condition Comparison

Product Conditions

Your machines are your livelihood, and you are trusted to keep them running. When a PLC or HMI part fails, you need to get it repaired or replaced with a quality product as quickly and affordably as possible. You must trust that the part you put back in your system will work to manufacturer’s specs, will work the first time you install it, and will work for years to come. You have lots of options to replace or repair bad parts – you can rest assured that the Recertified and Remanufactured PLC products from Qualitrol International are always a cost-effective alternative to new PLC products and are always of the highest quality. And our products always come with our exclusive Qualitrol 2-Year Warranty.

Recertified Parts from Qualitrol are the new industry standard in PLC parts. Qualitrol is the only factory authorized GE Repair Center in the World for GE lines such as 90-70, Field Control, QuickPanel, Series Six and others, so only we can provide Recertified parts that are

  • Certified to GE's Factory Performance Specifications
  • Reworked with Authentic OEM components
  • Updated to the latest Firmware
  • Tested on the actual Factory Testers used on GE’s factory floor

Unlike Surplus, Remanufactured or Reconditioned parts you’ll find elsewhere, Qualitrol’s Recertified Parts are as close as you can get to New parts. Recertified Parts from Qualitrol come with a 2-year warranty and are priced to beat anyone else’s Surplus, Remanufactured or Reconditioned parts.

Industry Definitions

New

Brand new, unused, unopened item that is in original packaging with all protective materials. New parts come direct from the manufacturer via an authorized distributor and are not pre-owned. Manufacturer’s warranty may still apply.

Recertified

Previously installed part, rebuilt with the authentic OEM components and the latest firmware. Item has been recertified to factory specifications by a Factory-Authorized Repair center to be in perfect working 'NEW' condition.

Repaired

A user-owned part that was broken and repaired to working condition. Factory-Authorized Repair Center will use authentic OEM parts and test to factory standards.

Remanufactured

Previously installed part that is repaired or rebuilt to working condition. Ideally, the part is functionally tested and verified to work to vendor specifications.

New Surplus

While New Surplus parts have never been used and are still in the factory box, they have been likely sitting on another plant’s shelf for many years. Check the date code on these parts to see how old they are. Over that time capacitors can leak, batteries fail, and chances are good they are not the latest firmware revision.

Used

Used, previously installed part. May show signs of wear. Without proper testing from an authorized repair center, the part may or may not work when installed, and could potentially introduce other hazards to working systems.

The definitions above are common industry standard definitions for conditions of products that are available for sale from a reseller.
