SX100 Vacuum logic
« on: October 15, 2014, 09:44:38 am »
Dear All,
If I leave my instrument in the wrong gun valve position for longer than an hour or so (e.g. instrument in 3 and softwre calling for 2), Peaksight and/or the hardware locks-up and I cannot use the instrument. The only solution I can find is to reset the electronics. This is very irritating. Does anyone have a the same issue? an explanation? a solution? or less aggressive method of recovery?

Our lab may also have seen this. Julie will have to confirm.
The only stupid question is the one not asked!
