Frequently Asked Questions
What's the warranty of the product?
For the Argo-POWERHM:
* the Argo-HM glass is warranted for 10 years. The fluorescence will be present for at least 10 years and the spatial dimensions of the patterns will not change. If you break the glass, we can repair it, so you don’t have to buy a complete new solution (information: within 5 years of production, only 0.5% of our customers claimed they broke the glass).
* The optical power-meter is an electronic device so it is warranted for 1 year. If necessary, we can replace it, so you don’t have to buy a complete solution.
Can I use both the powermeter and the patterned glass with immersion objectives?
The optical power meter is compatible only with air objectives. In fact, our sensor is partially waterproof and resistant to oil. So splashing or pouring oil is not a problem but we have not validated prolonged use.
Does the Argo-POWER need to be calibrated, as I do with my normal powermeter?
The power meter is calibrated by Argolight prior to shipping. An Argolight certificate of calibration is provided with the product.
The power meter response can change or deteriorate with time, especially if it has been illuminated with excessive average and/or peak power. Argolight advises to recalibrate the power meter every 12 months to ensure accuracy in the measurements. Find your Argo-POWERHM calibration file here.
How can I clean my Argo-POWER?
For dust removal, use clean pressurized gas and lint-free soft cotton swabs (or lens tissue) dabbed in a reagent grade alcohol (ethanol or propanol).
A minimum amount of alcohol is preferred to prevent from alcohol contamination below the detection window (power meter part).
Wearing gloves is advised. Do not use acetone.
