Sustainability and TSL Products

As we enter a new era of huge worldwide efforts to improve the sustainability of every industry, you can help reduce the environmental impact of your business by getting your TSL RFID readers repaired and re-used. Extending the working life of each TSL reader is essential, especially given that RFID hardware has a much longer useful service life than (for example) mobile phones or mobile computers. The Bluetooth® functionality within all of our readers means they can continue to be used even if your fleet of smart devices changes.

If we need to replace a part of the product during a repair, as a whole the environmental impact of the repair is still far lower than simply replacing the entire product, by using fewer raw materials and less energy to produce the smaller part, and producing less waste when the damaged part is disposed of.

If you wish to extend the life of your product, consider buying or renewing your CompleteCare Maintenance Program.

CompleteCare services available

Help the environment by returning Readers to TSL for renewal, using a CompleteCare Service Agreement. With CompleteCare, there are no unexpected repair costs and you will also benefit from significantly reduced turnaround time for your repairs, ensuring you protect the continuity of your business and maximising productivity and efficiency.  CompleteCare benefits include:

  • Priority support 
  • Dedicated RMA team
  • Speedy repairs using our ‘Best in Class’ manufacturing facility based in the UK
  • Wear & tear coverage
  • Up to 5 years peace of mind
  • Email our Technical Support Team for speedy issue resolution, with the aim of getting you back up and running in the shortest possible time

Repair Outside of Service Agreements

TSL can provide quotations for repair of products that are not covered by a CompleteCare Service Agreement.

Product Recycling

We offer a recycling programme for our third generation of RFID Readers (3xxx Readers such as the 3166) if purchased alongside a CompleteCare service agreement. At the end of the product’s serviceable life, you can return your products to TSL and we will recycle them. If we can re-use any materials then we will, with the remaining materials being disposed of responsibly.
