Photocentric Cure M+

Opening and Set up

It is best to have 3 people for the opening and removing from the box.

 

  • Open the packaging carefully. Do not use a sharp blade as you may damage the unit.
  • Have 2 people reach into the box and hold the unit but the bottom, then the third can hold the box in place while the unit is being lifted out.
  • Place the unit on a secure and level surface. If this is the final placement of the unit make sure you have adhered to the spacing suggested in the Installation Guide. This is essential to allow proper ventilation and heat dissapation.
  • Now plug the power cord into the unit, then into the mains socket while the socket is switched off. Once the cord is in securely then turn the mains power on. Note: Always check that the power cord is undamaged
  • To switch the unit on, once it is plugged in, press the green rocker switch. You will see the control panels light up.

Suitable Location

When choosing a suitable location for your Photocentric Cure M+, allow plenty of space for ventilation and heat dissipation, as the Cure M+ can reach up to 149°F inside (maximum set temperature is 143.6°F, but natural fluctuations to maintain temp can reach 149°F).  All diagrams have dimensions in millimetres unless otherwise stated. Consider the ergonomics of operating the cure unit.

Troubleshooting

  • If the light does not come on check the following:
  1. The door is firmly shut.
  2. The upward facing ventilation is not covered (this can lead to overheating and shut off the system).
  3. The unit is plugged in securely.
  • If the heater, lights, or green switch do not come on please check the fuses of the machine.
