What does the message, SERVICE REQUIRED PRESS HELP, mean?

Topic: You are getting ready to process a job or you have tried to process a job and the lenses didn’t cure properly when you notice that a message line has appeared on the upper left side of your Post Cure menu screen that reads SERVICE REQUIRED PRESS HELP.

The Reason Why: Your Post Cure Unit controls all of the functions for the Main Chamber.  It runs checks on the lamps, lamp intensity, filament power as well as the temperature of the heating oven from the time the unit it is turned on until you turn the unit off.  The System also monitors the current coming into your system and keeps track of the age of your lamps and air filter.  If there is something that the system checks that is out of calibration the SERVICE REQUIRED PRESS HELP line will appear in the upper left portion of the main menu screen.

The Fix: When you press the HELP button located next to the main menu screen you will get a screen that looks like this:

01         OK       Post Cure Temperature

02         OK       Light Intensity

03         OK       Lamp Power

04         OK       Filament Heat Power

05         OK       Lamp On Time

06         OK       Post Cure Heaters

07         OK       Lamp Temperature

08         OK       Line Voltage

09         OK       Communications

Any error detected will be highlighted and will have SERVICE in place of OK.

Example:  03      SERVICE   Lamp Power

It’s Derby Time, Let’s Run for the Roses!

As we are located in Kentucky, come early May it’s all about the horses, Derby horses to be exact. This year will be the 145th running of the $2 million  dollar world famous Kentucky Derby. What some people have dubbed the “most exciting two minutes in sports.” With the singing of My Old Kentucky Home, the array of outlandish derby hats and the drinking of the traditional mint julep, the first Saturday in May is always an event.

Happy Derby Day from Optical Dynamics! (throwback 2016)
