Regular Maintenance Regime
There is a possibility that the certified white calibration object could become contaminated or dirty over time. It can be returned to the manufacturer for recalibration or replacement if any visual inspection reveals dirt/damage. It is recommended that it should be recalibrated or replaced annually. If a damaged or dirty calibration object is used, this could adversely affect system performance & results. During the calibration process, our system will indicate if the calibration object is losing its visual properties due to wear, dirt, or damage.
There are no moving parts, so no annual maintenance is necessary other than replacing the camera & light glass covers if broken, pitted or scratched. We supply a set of spare glass covers with all systems and these are available ex-stock. We recommend that a spare set of lenses are always carried in the vehicle. Broken glass covers are easily replaced without opening the enclosure. The Glass is a High Quality Toughened Anti-Reflective Glass, so no other glass should ever be fitted as it will adversely affect the results.
