Other Offenses

No country of origin on the GW1000 product

Section 304 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1304), provides that, unless excepted, every article of foreign origin imported into the U.S. shall be marked in a conspicuous place as legibly, indelibly, and permanently as the nature of the article (or container) will permit, in such a manner as to indicate to the ultimate purchaser in the U.S. the English name of the country of origin of the article. Part 134, Customs Regulations (19 CFR Part 134), implements the country of origin marking requirements and exceptions of 19 U.S.C. 1304. Section 134.41(b), Customs Regulations (19 CFR 134.41(b)), mandates that the ultimate purchaser in the U.S. must be able to find the marking easily and read it without strain.
The GW1000 has no Country of Origin indicated either internally or externally.

False documentation provided to US customs on importation

Actual Datalink documentation for US customs is included.  As is obvious, the sale price on this  documentation is false.  To claim that something is only worth $50 when it is actually been sold  for $1495 is clearly fraudulent.
The above declaration is included with the shipment, and then an actual payable invoice is sent by mail as indicated below.
Generally, misleading US Customs is serious for both the buyer and the seller. Even after the above activity was exposed in Court, Datalink continued the practice.

Unauthorized use of corporate logos

A page of Datalink’s original website that used major corporate logos is attached.  Four of these companies, EATON, EXXON, Alton Steel, and ATF Mining Engineering, have contacted Datalink and had the unauthorized use of their logos removed.

Untrue Testimonials

Datalink used to make the following false claim about the GW1000: “The serial DF1 to DH+ conversion protocol available in the GW1000-DHP1 is the same one available in the DL3500-DH+/DF1 product”. Another claim they make is the testimonial about the GW1000: “The DL3000 is  unbelievable….it keeps on running in the most disgusting, hazardous environment you could ever imagine. We didn’t even know what the controller was because of all the messy residue covering the box….it just keeps on working. J.S.”. Sometime after the release of the GW1000, it became: “The GW1000 is unbelievable….it keeps on running in the most disgusting, hazardous environment you could ever imagine. We didn’t even know what the controller was because of all the messy residue covering the box….it just keeps on working. J.S.” Interesting how similar those quotes are.

GW1000 product does not meet Allen-Bradley specifications

This is potentially a dangerous situation.It is explained in some detail on our website at www.gw1000.ca and more information explaining this situation is available upon request.
This fault was more or less admitted by Datalink when it announced the GW1500 in mid-January, 2012, where the web-site clearly stated, Enhancements  include:

  • New circuitry that increases the signal levels on the DH+ transmitter. The GW1500 websites were later deleted and now Datalink is back to selling the non-compliant GW1000. They have subsequently began changing the name to the DT1000 and have dropped their price to $995.00

We believe that the rogue engineer who previously designed Datalink products refused to help them out of this mess that Datalink created and thus they had to withdraw the non-existent product.

No known place of business or employees

This situation is explained in more detail on our website, www.gw1000.ca and about all that can be added is that it appears that Datalink and Morgan Jack may have moved what little operations they have to Buenos Aires, Argentina

Many other claims are being litigated against Datalink, et. al. such as

illegal use of intellectual property, copyright infringement and improper business practices.
