Os procedimentos de manutenção devem ser executados no analisador de modo a otimizar o desempenho do sistema e diminuir o tempo de inatividade. Vamos começar com as atividades de manutenção diária. Os procedimentos de manutenção diária a serem realizados no ADVIA mil e oitocentos incluem principalmente checagens visuais e limpeza, se necessário. Isso deve levar cerca de 10 minutos. Os componentes que devem ser avaliados na manutenção diária são: as probes, as estações de lavagem, hastes dos mixers, capas de proteção das probes e o módulo ISE. É necessário inspecionar também as bombas para verificar possíveis vazamentos. Todos os dias, o operador deve checar os reagentes e as soluções do sistema para certificar-se que há volume suficiente, antes do processamento das amostras. Por fim, verificar se há condensação excessiva nos carrosséis de reagentes, registrar os slopes do ISE e realizar uma lavagem de finalização do dia, também conhecida como WASH 2. A manutenção diária do ISE inclui a lavagem dos eletrodos e o registro dos slopes. Os eletrodos do ISE são lavados diariamente durante a lavagem WASH 2, mas em algumas circunstâncias, lavagens adicionais podem ser necessárias. O ISE é calibrado diariamente e os slopes precisam ser registrados no Log de manutenção. Em laboratórios que não funcionam 24 horas por dia, ou no caso de o sistema estar ocioso por mais de 4 horas, uma lavagem de inicialização ou Wash 3 é necessária. Twin Procedures:         1.  Switch Rack Lanes for hardware troubleshooting and maintenance         2.  Offline Methods used for chemisty troubleshooting or non-identical test menu selection         3.  Controlled Power Shutdown of the Twin System     Note: Refer to the Dimension Vista® Operators Guide to obtain the procedures.   Twin Procedures Learn more about the Twin procedures. Tab TitleTextSwitch Rack Lanes Switch Rack Lanes Perform the Switch Rack Lanes procedure on the instrument that will remain in operation. Press the Switch Rack Lanes button on the Supplies screen and follow the steps in the dialog box. The input and output lane lights will change to green for input and yellow for output indicating a successful lane change. This procedure takes approximately 5 minutes. After the other instrument is operational, convert the lanes back to their original configuration by using the same procedure to re-establish dual input/output lane operation. Before powering down the Twin System, use the switch rack lane procedure to keep one instrument operational.       Offline Methods Option Offline Methods Option   Use this procedure to troubleshoot a single method.  Samples with that method ordered are directed to the instrument that is able to perform the test, while you are troubleshooting the method on the other instrument. Also use this feature if the Twin System has non-identical test menus and off-line methods. This is an easy way to add the method to the test menu on that instrument.    The Dimension Vista® system software allows flexibility for method programming and troubleshooting. Note: If a method is disabled, it is disabled on both instruments. Controlled Shutdown Controlled Power Shutdown  Always ensure each instrument status is in System Ready or Paused to ensure the workload is completed before powering down. To restart the software on one instrument, you must first perform the Switch Rack Lane procedure to continue operating with input and output lanes available. A yellow alert will display to remind the operator. Proceed to Respond to the Dialog, a new option to select Left, Both or Right instrument to be shutdown in order to restart with available software. Follow the Controlled Power Shutdown procedure in the iGuide. When a complete Controlled Power Shutdown is necessary, both instruments are powered down as a single system. For Startup,  if both instruments are powered down, always turn on the power switch on the left instrument first, then the right instrument. The restored power will automatically launch the software for both instruments.     When complete, select the X in the upper-right corner to close the window and continue.   Twin error messages:   Sample transfer shuttle assembly   Mechanical or Sensor Error on Track   One Instrument is Paused Note: Reset both instruments after troubleshooting steps are performed. Error Messages Learn how to identify and recover from Twin Errors. Tab TitleTextSample Rack Errors Rack Load Failed Error caused by a mechanical or sensor error on the track. Rack Unload Failed Error caused by a lost sample rack between the server and the track. Sample Rack Transferred Failed Error caused  by a rack transfer failed on both instruments. For recovery from the 3 Errors, reset both Dimension Vista® instruments.     Mechanical or Sensor Error on Track Mechanical or Sensor Error on Track The "Reset Both" error is an error on the left instrument. The right instrument simultaneously displays a “Rack Transfer Failed on Other Instrument, Reset Both” error. This occurs when the pallet and the rack fail to transfer from the Left instrument to the Right instrument.  To recover, reset both Dimension Vista® instruments. This will eject the stranded sample rack.   Pause Error Pause Error The Pause Error is caused by pressing the Dimension Vista® pause button on either instrument when the transfer shuttle is active. To recover, reset both Dimension Vista® instruments. When complete, select the X in the upper-right corner to close the window and continue.
