Calitoo Corner #3: Taking care of your instrument!


We would like to share with you some tips on how to keep your Calitoo instrument up and running:

  1. Keep your instrument indoors until the time of measurement. The instrument detector is sensitive to temperature and performs best near room temperature (~70F or ~21C).
  2. Don’t let your instrument overheat. Also don’t make measurements in extreme cold unless instrument is insulated from cold.
  3. Don’t forget to TURN OFF your instrument after you’re done measuring! To turn off, press the button for a few seconds until the screen reads: “Stop in progress”.
  4. When batteries start going low, the instrument stops functioning properly; replace batteries with a voltage smaller than 1.5 V.

If you have any tips that you would like to share with other participants, do not hesitate to contact us at m.pippin@nasa.gov!
