Cleaning

How often do the reflective surfaces need to be cleaned?

Every three weeks is a good starting point for a PM schedule for a single-shift, 5-day operation. The interval can then be adjusted as necessary. Inspect the insides of the reflectors and concentrators every 3 weeks and look for dirty residue. Another indicator of dirty reflective surfaces is a boss that isn’t fully staked by process settings that were working well before.

1. Disassemble the module

Press the snap button and remove the concentrator and reflector.

2. Clean the reflective surfaces

Thoroughly clean the reflector and concentrator with a soft, clean cloth and non-abrasive polish (i.e. Award Glo) or any non-abrasive cleaner (i.e. window cleaner or isopropyl alcohol). Extol offers a cleaning kit that contains Award Glo polish and a polishing cloth. Part No. 1102706

3. Reassemble the module

Place the reflector into the concentrator according to the position markers and reinstall into the module.

Replacing the Lamp

How long should the lamp last?

The tungsten-halogen lamp in the IS32 model InfraStake module should last approximately 1000 hours. This varies somewhat from lamp to lamp, but generally speaking, if your InfraStake heat time is 6 seconds, the lamp should last for half a million cycles.

1. Disassemble the module

Press the snap button and remove the concentrator and reflector.

2. Remove Punch and Lamp Assembly

Firmly grasp the punch and pull until it releases from the magnet. Remove the lamp assembly from the punch.

Caution: Lamp may be hot!

3. Remove Lamp

Pull the lamp out of the lamp holder. Discard old lamp.

Caution: Lamp may be hot!

4. Replace Lamp

Using gloves or the packaging around the lamp, push the new lamp into the lamp holder. Discard packaging.

Note: Do NOT touch the lamp with your fingers as oil from your skin may reduce lamp life.

5. Reassemble the module

Place the lamp assembly into the punch. Slide the punch into the module until it snaps to the magnet. Place the reflector into the concentrator according to the position markers and reinstall into the module.

6. Reset the lamp on-time and cycle counter

On the HMI, under the Monitor section, open the Maintenance tab. Reset the lamp on-time and cycle counter back to zero in order to track the usage of the new lamp. A confirmation prompt will appear, tap OK to confirm and reset the lamp.
