1. INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION

1.1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION


Printer

Display with touch screen

Sipper Unit

Aspiration Button

Printer: Prints out results when an analysis is completed and other information. It is a
Thermal printer with a standard 56 mm paper width.

Display: TFT color display with LED backlight for the User Interface. The display includes
the resistive touch screen layer.

Keyboard (optional): The instrument use the touch screen for user interaction. Therefore an external
keyboard can be connected in the rear panel if required. The keyboard must have
a PS/2 compatible connector.

Sipper unit: The sipper unit is made up of a plastic flexible tube and a rigid part. The plastic
tube is for aspirating sample/reagent mixture and cleaning solutions.

Aspiration Button: To aspirate a reagent sample, place the vessel containing the fluid under the
sipper tube. Ensure the tube is deep enough in the fluid to aspirate the necessary
amount. Push the button and the aspiration will start. The front aspiration button
includes an LED board with different color light capability to show the instrument

3. INSTRUMENT CALIBRATION PROCEDURE

3.1. PRELIMINARY INFORMATION

An instrument calibration is required every time an important part of the photometer is replaced by a new
one. It can be the Flow Cell, the Lamp, the Optical Sensor Board, and an optical filter.

3.2. FILTERS CALIBRATION


This command can be found in the “Setup” menu /
Instrument Setup / Filters tab.

From this page, it is possible to perform calibration of


the filters setting. To perform calibration, press the “start
calibration” button, position a container with distilled
water under the sipper tube and press the aspiration
button. Wait the aspiration end. Repeat the aspiration
other 2 times. Once aspiration is complete, the
calibration of the various filters will begin: this operation
requires a few minutes.

If filter calibration is successful, a green circle will appear


next to each filter. When all the filters are calibrated, it is
possible to exit the page by pressing the EXIT button.

If the calibration procedure is not successful, a red circle


will appear next to the filter which cannot be calibrated.

NOTE: even if the filter is not successfully calibrated, it is nevertheless possible to work with the
instrument and use the other filters. In the event that certain filters are not calibrated, it is advisable to
perform flushing of the cuvette with distilled water and suitable detergents, and leave distilled water inside
the cuvette for at least an hour. Afterwards, repeat the filter calibration procedure.
