Title: Novation DR Documents help?
Post by: WvBlackbear on July 05, 2017, 05:51:16 PM
Hello, I am in need of the documentation for this unit please.
I will be de-installing, and re-installing the unit and assume the detector must be removed and climate controlled during transport?

Thanks in advance for the help!

You are assuming correctly about the detector...
The flat panel of this unit (made by Hologic) is sensitive to sudden changes of temperature and excessive humidity. This is why you need first to switch off the unit (cut the power) and wait for a fair amount of time (e.g. 24h), for the detector to stabilize its internal temperature after the heating/cooling system is powered off. Then you have to remove the flat panel and transport it separately and store it in a temperature/humidity controlled location. What is important is that you never move the detector e.g. from a cool place to a warm place (or vice versa) in a short period of time. When you are going to re-install the panel, you have (again) to leave it in the final location for a similar fair amount (e.g. 24h) before you power on its heating/cooling system that will bring the panel back to operating temperature.

It is also a good idea, to seal the removed panel in an air tight bag during transport and storage, with some humidity absorbing bags (e.g. silica gel) to be sure no environmental humidity is affecting it.

Check your email for more info.
