What does DPC stand for?
Dynamic Picture Control (DPC) will reduce lighting from the unit and is useful for people who are light sensitive. It will also be the best choice for reading medicine boxes and cans etc.
What does ROPC stand for?
ROPC stands for Reading Optimized Picture Control (ROPC). Each product is individually tested for optimized picture quality. The user can also personalize the unit further for any special needs. ROPC will adjust colour and contrast and minimize flicker or ghosting for every situation.
What does End User Configuration (EUC) stand for?
EUC is a configuration program in that the distributors individually can modify the settings according to the user. The settings are magnification (max + min), guiding line (colour + thickness), lighting and how many colours to use.
Is it normal that the light slowly flashes yellow when the unit is turned off?
Yes, when the system is in standby mode. When you turn on the system it flashes green and during usage it is constantly green.
Will the unit start with the same settings as before I turned it off?
Yes, if you turn off the system with the off button. If you pull the cord or you are having a power outage, the settings will not be saved.
Is it normal that the autofocus motor is slower while focusing and faster if the autofocus is off?
Yes, that is normal.
Why does the red switch light suddenly flash yellow?
The reason is that the autofocus is locked in a fixed position. A yellow lasting light means that the system is not using the default settings.
Can I change the lamps of the system myself?
No, the LEDs have extremely long life. If they need to be changed, contact your distributor.
How do I lift the system?
You should not lift the system by holding the lamp houses, the screen or any plastic parts. It is best to lift the system in the basic structure, for example the arms that go out to the lamp houses.
