Overview
It is recommended that you read this entire Installation Guide prior to installing and using your
Lightyear digital radiography system.
Changes
Lightyear is continually improving its products and services. We reserve the right to make
changes without prior notice regarding all information, specifications and illustrations contained
in this Guide.
Intended Use
The Lightyear System is intended to be used as an X-ray image capture device for intraoral
dental radiography by a licensed dental professional, in a dental office environment, in place of
traditional dental X-ray film.
Safety Precautions
Be sure to observe all radiation safety codes and procedures when taking X-ray images.
Do not immerse any Lightyear equipment in liquids; if a solid or liquid falls on any
Lightyear system equipment, unplug the equipment immediately and have it checked by
qualified personnel.
Always use a new disposable sensor sheath on the sensor with each new patient.
Do not install Lightyear equipment near heat sources or where it will be in direct
sunlight; also avoid installing near mechanical vibrations or areas where the equipment
can be subject to shock.
Avoid electro-static discharges (ESD).
No Lightyear system components can be autoclaved.
Service and Maintenance
Only qualified people, certified by Lightyear, can service the equipment; unauthorized repairs
may invalidate the warranty. Inspect all cables for damage every 6 months; if damage is found,
do not use the sensor and contact Lightyear immediately.
Cleaning and Infection Control
Always use a new disposable sensor sheath on the sensor with each new patient.
Clean all components as needed or at least annually; by wiping or spraying them with
rubbing alcohol, ethyl alcohol, or glutaraldehyde.
Make sure all cables are disconnected and the computer is off before cleaning; never
spray cleaner onto the display.

Daily Sensor Care


The sensor must be handled with care. It must be disinfected by performing the following
procedure before use on each new patient:
Clean and disinfect the sensor and cable by wiping or spraying it with rubbing alcohol,
ethyl alcohol, or glutaraldehyde. The sensors should never be autoclaved or submersed
in cleaning fluids.
Do not use petroleum-based agents.
Slip a new disposable sheath over the sensor before placing it into the patients mouth.
Discard used sheaths in accordance with local health codes.
Disinfect the sensor after each use.

Configuring a Workstation
Due to Lightyears unique structure, only one installation of Lightyear is needed on the network.
Once Lightyear has been installed on the network, all computers running 32-bit Windows
operating systems can automatically run the application without performing additional
installations on each computer.
A typical network installation of Lightyear consists of installing the application on a network
server (or other computer that has been chosen to be the Lightyear server). Since the server is a
shared resource with all of the computers on the network, each workstation automatically will
have access to the application. If you have questions please contact Lightyear Support toll free
at 866-946-2431.
To set up Lightyear on a client workstation, perform the following steps on the workstation:
1. Double-click the My Network Places icon on the Desktop and navigate to the shared
folder containing the Lightyear installation on the server computer.
2. Double click the Lightyear.EXE application file to launch the program.
3. Select Preferences.
