CFEZ/MSEZ/D25NC/STHT Signal Level Diagnostic Test in EZMQC How to run Diagnostics > Signal Level test in EasyMatch QC for ColorFlex EZ/MiniScan EZ/D25NC/STHT Sensors

Follow
  1. Go to SENSOR > ADD SENSOR to connect the instrument to EasyMatch QC.
  2. Go to SENSOR >DIAGNOSTICS > HARDWARE CHECKS. The SENSOR DIAGNOSTIC TEST dialog will pop out.

  3. Select SIGNAL LEVEL. Put the instrument white tile on the reflectance sample port. For CFEZ, make sure to use large view area port plate. De-select GRAPHIC DISPLAY and RAW DATA TABLE.

    1. Click on FLASH Instrument will take a reflectance measurement and display data in the table form. Six items will be filled in the table for both the monitor and samples channels, including Max Counts, Min Counts, Average Counts, Maximum Pixel, Dark Count Max, and Dark Count Min.

    Pay attention to the MONITOR and SAMPLE MAX COUNTS values. Max Counts are the peak values for the sample and monitor channel. With the instrument white tile, the Max Counts values should not below 15000, and are generally in the certain range for these instruments. Also, the monitor channel value is typically within 80% -120% of the sample channel value. If the values of the sample and Monitor fall outside of these bounds, the instrument may not work properly.

  1. Click on “Flash” button. Instrument will take a reflectance measurement and display data in the table form. Six items will be filled in the table for both the monitor and samples channels, including Max Counts, Min Counts, Average Counts, Maximum Pixel, Dark Count Max, and Dar Count Min.

 

Pay attention to the monitor and sample Max Counts’ values. Max Counts are the peak values for the sample and monitor channel. With the instrument white tile, the Max Counts values should not below 15000, and are generally in the certain range for these instruments (Table-1). Also, the monitor channel value is typically within 80% -120% of the sample channel value. If the values of the sample and Monitor fall outside of these bounds, the instrument may not work properly.
