-4 & FluoroMax
-4P with USB v. B (23 Oct 2009)
Xenon-arc lamps are an explo-
sion hazard. Wear explosion-
proof face-shield and protective
clothing when opening the lamp
housing and handling the lamp.
Disconnect the lamp power supply from the AC power line (mains) while handling
lamp leads. Lethal high voltages may exist.
The lamp remains extremely hot for approximately one-half hour after it has been
turned off. Do not touch the lamp or the metal unit until the lamp has cooled.
Never look directly at the xenon arc or its reflection. Intense radiation can perma-
nently damage eyes.
Do not touch the focusing lens, back-scatter mirror, or the surface of the lamp. Fin-
gerprints will be burned onto these surfaces when the lamp is ignited.
Changing the lamp
Switch off and prepare the FluoroMax
Be sure that the FluoroMax
-4 and the host computer are turned off.
Remove the AC (mains) power cord from the FluoroMax
Disconnect the RS-232 cable, optional trigger-box cable, power cord,
and any other cables attached to the spectrofluorometer.
Gently remove the sample mount from the front
of the FluoroMax
The standard FluoroMax
is held via a friction fit, with no
screws to remove. Some accesso-
ries require removal of 4 screws.
Some sample mounts also have a
15-pin connector at the inside end
for automated accessories.
