Coverage period 

This warranty lasts for five calendar years following the purchase of any Cirrus LED display system. Warranty may not be exercised until the display  has been installed, powered, connected to the Internet and Cirrus has verified adequate setup. Displays that are stored for extended periods of time  and not installed within 90 days of shipment may not qualify for warranty coverage at the discretion of Cirrus Systems, Inc. Coverage terminates if  an end user sells, transfers, opens or tampers with any display system or its internal components. 


What's covered

Cirrus will replace any defective or malfunctioning part at no charge and pay for shipping. All defective parts must be returned to Cirrus Systems for  servicing upon failure. Replacement components will be dispatched once a credit card has been secured to guarantee the return of the defective  part. Replaced parts are required to be returned within 21 days of shipment or a charge for the cost of the replacement part will be applied to the  held credit card. 


What's not covered

This warranty does not cover labor costs or any problem that is caused by abuse, misuse, improper installation, or an act of God. Also, consequential  and incidental damages are not recoverable under this warranty. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential  damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. Cirrus will not be responsible for any labor charges incurred during assembly,  disassembly, or any other services related to the part replacement.

Any company or individual that purchases a display from Cirrus Systems or from an authorized Cirrus distributor is eligible for this warranty and  service. If issues are experienced with any display system, contact Cirrus at (877) 636-2331 and follow the prompts for technical support.

TP-Link Wifi Kit Warranty

Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the Products and Software, including the Hardware, and all related Services shall be  provided “as is” without warranty of any kind, and Cirrus hereby disclaims, and Customer hereby waives, any and all warranties whether  express, implied or statutory, including all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.  Further, Cirrus does not warrant, guarantee, or make any representations that any Software provided will be free from all bugs or that its  use will be uninterrupted or error-free. Customer understands and agrees that Cirrus is not responsible for and will have no liability for  equipment hardware, software, or other items or any services provided by or manufactured by any persons other than Cirrus or its  authorized agents. The foregoing constitutes Customer’s sole rights and remedies under this agreement with respect to defects in the  products, software or services. 

Limitation on Liability

Buyer understands and agrees that except for instances involving Cirrus’s indemnification obligations set forth in the governing Sales Agreement, Cirrus’s aggregate liability for any damages suffered by Buyer or any other party, whether in contract, in tort, under any warranty theory, or otherwise, shall be limited to the amount paid to Cirrus by Buyer under this Contract for the defective System component(s) giving rise to the indemnified losses or damages covered by this Agreement.

Safety/Compliance Information

High voltage 

Contact with high voltage from AC mains may cause death or serious injury.  Always disconnect AC power to unit prior to servicing. 



It is essential to earth-ground the sign before connecting controller. Connecting signs that are not earth grounded may cause damage to the LED Display System and in severe cases cause death or injury.



Other safety messages appear throughout this manual where appropriate. Cirrus LED components are UL Listed. File #E352796 and FCC Certified.

Environmental Considerations

The Cirrus Outdoor LED panels are fully encapsulated and water-proof. The Controller is housed in a water-proofed aluminum enclosure. 

The Cirrus Outdoor LED panels are rated for an ambient operating temperature range of -40~+70° Celsius (-40 ~ +158° Fahrenheit) and are designed to withstand continuous direct sunlight. If the panels experience an over-temperature condition, a signal will be sent to the controller to shut down the sign. Once the sign has cooled, it will automatically restart. 

The Controller is rated for an ambient operating temperature range of -10~+60°C (14~ +140°F) and should be protected from direct sunlight.  Operation at colder temperatures is routinely and regularly accomplished, though starting the screen from a powered off state at  temperatures below 14°F may not be possible. A controller which is in a powered on state produces ambient heat which can allow it to  continuously run at temperatures as low as -30°F (-34°C). 

All components and connections are sealed and water-tight for protection from the ingress of dust and water, though no components  should be subjected to immersion in water. 

Shipping & Receiving, Product Storage

All deliveries shall be FOB Cirrus Systems (Seller), Portsmouth, NH. Methods and routes of shipment, unless Seller specifies in writing otherwise, shall be accepted as chosen by Seller at Seller’s sole discretion. Purchaser shall pay all costs of shipment. Delivery to the carrier shall constitute delivery and passage of title to Purchaser, and risk of loss shall pass to Purchaser concurrently with passage of title. Seller will use reasonable diligence to meet scheduled shipment dates and times. Such dates and times are the best possible estimates, and not guarantees, of when goods will be shipped. In no event shall Seller be liable for any losses or damages of any kind due to delays in shipment, nor may Purchaser cancel its contract because of any such delay. 

It is the responsibility of the Purchaser to check the Product for visible damage prior to accepting delivery from the carrier. Any damage to the Product must be noted on the delivery slip with the carrier and immediately reported to Cirrus. Photographic evidence of damages will be required. Cirrus may assist in seeking remedy with the carrier for damaged goods but does not retain title and therefore is not legally responsible for said damages. 

Delivered product should be stored in a cool dry place, out of the way of foot/motorized traffic. 

It is the installer’s responsibility to look over the product before installing to ensure there are no missing parts and there is no visible damage to any parts of the display. If there is any damage, Cirrus must be informed prior to install.
