Fluscreen insertion takes long time

Issue

Fluscreen insertion will take around 18s but retraction is fine.

Environment

Metrios DX G3

Resolution

These are possible resolutions for the issue:

  • Adjust the position of Fluscreen insertion sensor.

Cause

These are possible causes for the issue:

  • Fluscreen insertion sensor was slightly mis-aligned.

Details

During insertion, the screen position is become unknown and then it will insert after ~18s. Fluscreen retraction does not have this problem.

When looking at the Fluscreen mechanism, the Fluscreen will insert and then stop a few mm from the actual position and after ~18s, it will insert fully.

Issue was fixed after adjusting the Fluscreen insertion sensor a few mm to the right side.

Note: You can refer to the next slide for procedure on adjusting Fluscreen sensors.

During Fluscreen insertion, if sensor is not activated in the Screen IN position, adjust its position until it is activated.

During Fluscreen retraction, if sensor is not activated in the Screen OUT position, adjust its position until it is activated.
