Checking Temperatures in DS2500 (Lamp)



 
In order that the performance of the instrument DS2500 be optimal, we have to attend the temperature of the lamp when running the diagnostics. I consider it is fine around 35ºC.
Sometimes we find high temperatures like the one in the picture, and even seeing that the report says that is OK, this temperature can affect to the instrument itself and the results.
One of the causes that this temperature increase is that the tank of the pump has lost water, so it is a good idea to check the level, and fill it in if necessary.

Check that the pump is pumping. We should see some turbulences in the water and a small noise in the pump.
Check if the water is to dirty, or with algae’s.
Check that the fan is working, its mission is to keep cold the water and see if the filter is clean so the fan performs better its mission.

Changing the filter

It is important also the temperature of the room or laboratory where the instrument is. A higher temperature will increase also the lamp temperature.

After checking all this points, and being sure that the lamp is fine, maybe is the moment to run an instrument calibration:
