Selecting a Filter Set

The Filter-Cap of each sensor can be removed for application of various filter combinations on the same optical sensor.

Mounting a Filter-Cap

  • Applies to: O2k-Fluo LED2-Module (O2k-Series D to G) Fluorescence Sensor; O2k-FluoRespirometer (O2k-Series H to I) with Smart Fluo-Sensors
  • Dismounting: Pull the Filter-Cap straight from the sensor. The Filter-Cap Guide prevents rotational movements.
  • Remove all filters and store them in the filter box labeled for this Filter Set.
  • Insert the filters form the selected Filter Set: The round filters of each Filter Set fit to the round window of the Filter-Cap and cover the LED, the rectangular filters fit into the rectangular window of the Filter-Cap and cover the photodiode.
  • Mounting: Hold sensor and filter cap in a vertical position above you. Align the Filter-Cap with the Filter-Cap Guide (small steel rod) protruding from the sensor. Press the Filter-Cap onto the sensor without rotational movements.
