Blue Indicator Light for Detector Temperature in Qtegra


Blue indicator light for Detector Temperature in Qtegra


  • iCAP 6000 Series
  • iCAP 7000 Series


The blue icon in Qtegra Dashboard is only an indication that the detector temperature is lower than -50°C which is not a problem for measurements. The iCAP will still perform perfectly well and no immediate action needs to be taken.

However, if one sees drifting peak positions and this temperature reads -55 degrees ( in iTEVA), then the Camera needs replacing.

Please note: The chiller needs to be switched on for the camera to cool.

To check the exact temperature in iTEVA, perform the following:

1) Open iTEVA iTEVA icon.jpg

2) Select admin from dropdown menu and click Ok

3) Click the Instrument Status icon
