The laser distance sensors are almost maintenance-free. However, the following checklist for maintenance should be processed cyclically and reacted accordingly:
- Check sensor optics for contamination → Clean laser exit glass and receiver lens carefully if necessary (Note: Only use tools suitable for cleaning optical parts / instruments)
- Check valve diaphragm → Valve diaphragm must be free of contaminants (no water, dirt, etc. on the valve diaphragm)
- Check general sensor status → Sensor must not be damaged, must be correctly assembled and should always be clean
Note: Highly contaminated sensor optics can adversely affect the measurement performance (accuracy, speed) or lead to measurement errors.
