Silver care purchasing options

Service contract during product warranty (R3DW, R5DW) Predictable budget and no risk of coverage gap

Cost effectiveness

A Tektronix Silver Care plan is an effective way to control costs and protect you from unplanned expenses. Purchasing a care plan after the purchase of your instrument can save you money, but the greatest savings come with extended warranty coverage purchased at the same time as your instrument.

Our plans cover all parts, labor, and transportation costs for up to 5 years of price protection. Tektronix Silver Care plans are designed for customers seeking high availability of their instruments, at a low cost.
