Taking Care of DUO

There is several guidelines you should follow for taking care of your DUO. Staring with some maintenance/customization topics.


•  Lens Exchange - The device will accept any M8 lenses. However, replacing the lenses is a delicate procedure and it should be performed in a clean-room environment as it may contaminate the sensors. Furthermore, the device must be focused and calibrated after lens replacement. We strongly discourage our clients from performing this procedure on their own as it will void the warranty.
•  Mounting - The device can be mounted using standard M2 screws.


•  Cleaning - We recommend cleaning the device with compressed air and an electronic equipment cleaning solution, mind the lenses.
•  Storage - The device is delicate, so please make sure to store it safely to ensure the lens assembly is not damaged or taken out of focus/alignment.


•  Static Electric - As with any electronic equipment, the device should be shielded from static electricity.
•  Heat Generation - Being a compact imaging device, the DUO will generate some heat during the normal operation. We recommend the following:
  •  Make sure to properly monitor the temperature of the device.
  •  More heat will be created when using the high powered LED board (DUO MLX).
  •  Limit LED usage or use external modules if using in a contained space.
