Lifecycle of a TIM Model: Pending > Available > Limited Availability > End-Of-Life
    • Pending TIM models are in the late design stages and may change once made Available.
    • Available TIM models are sold and fully supported with annual Extended Warranty contracts.
    • Limited Availability TIM Models are no longer available for purchase but are fully supported with annual Extended Warranty contracts. Once serviceable parts are exhausted, the status will change to End-Of-Life and all service and support will be provided with on a "best effort" basis and extended warranty support will no longer be offerered on an annual basis.
    • End-Of-Life TIM Models are no longer available for purchase and are Extended Warranty contracts will not cover them. All "best effort" repair is return to factory and will be charged for replacement parts and diagnose and repiar time.
