Sales Terms and Warranty

This sale is subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, which supersede any and all terms and conditions set forth in any documents issued by Purchaser, including Purchaser’s purchase order. No waiver or amendment of these terms and conditions shall be binding unless made in writing and signed by Theia Technologies.

Theia does not offer any warranty on the suitability of Theia lenses for any particular camera or application (see the clause on Limitations).

Lens Installation

The operator’s manual that arrives with the lens contains important installation, use, and maintenance information including the requirement (if applicable) to invert the camera or image and keep the focus set to the NEAR position during installation. Theia Technologies’ Linear Optical Technology® which is used in some of Theia’s lenses allows the ultra wide angle lens to maintain very low distortion inverts the image. This requires the camera to be mounted upside down or the image to be inverted electronically. Refer to your camera’s operator’s manual to invert the camera or image. The lens will arrive with the focus set to the NEAR position. Keep the lens in this position during installation to avoid possible interference between the lens and IR cut filter of the camera. After installation, the lens can be focused normally.

Motorized Lenses

Theia’s motorized lenses are intended for integration into cameras and require motor drivers and controllers for normal operation. Theia will work with the camera manufacturer to ensure that the camera motor controller matches the lens motor control specifications and requirements. For example, there are many types of connectors for electrical connections between the camera and lens. The connectors on Theia’s lenses may not be compatible with any particular camera. Theia cannot guarantee that any motor controller not sold by Theia will not damage the lens.

These motorized lenses are not intended for continuous use of the motors as in PTZ applications.

Motorized Lens Motor Controller

A controller is available from Theia for evaluation of Theia’s motorized lenses. This controller and accompanying software are intended to be used as a lens evaluation instrument and not intended to be used as-is in the customer’s product. Theia may change the motor control board or software without notice and without regard for backwards compatibility.

If the customer wishes to use the motor control board in their final product the customer is responsible for qualifying and certifying the motor control board and software.


Payment shall be in U.S. Dollars, and shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms set forth on the applicable Theia Technologies Quotation. Payment shall be in an amount equal to the purchase price for the applicable Product plus all applicable taxes, shipping charges, and other charges to be borne by Purchaser.

The quotation must be signed and returned before repairs can be started. The quotation will include shipping by ground service back to the customer. Other shipping options are available at additional cost. If the quotation is not accepted and the customer requests the lens be returned, the customer must pay for shipping and handling to return the lens.

Warranty After Repair

The Seller does not warrant that the Products will be suitable for all end user applications and is not responsible for incorrect or erroneous product selection. This warranty does not cover equipment that has been installed incorrectly, altered from its original state, abused, misused, or accidentally damaged. This warranty does not cover damage during shipping. Minor defects such as dents and scratches that do not affect lens performance will not be covered under this warranty.

No Further Warranty

Theia Technologies makes no further warranty, expressly or implied, including merchantability or fitness for a particular application. In no event shall Theia Technologies be responsible for consequential or incidental damage or loss due to the use of Theia Technologies’ equipment. The customer agrees that the sole and exclusive maximum liability of Theia Technologies arising from any product sold by Theia will be the price of the product ordered. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Theia and its suppliers will have no liability to the customer or any third party for any indirect, special, incidental, punitive, and/or consequential damages, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
