VLX LENS COVERS/PROTECTION

Post by dustinsirman »

OK so every now and then some of our scan techs will scratch a lens on a ladder cage and eventually it will create a issue in the scan images. its expensive to ship our units back to Germany to repair the lenses.

we have contacted so many companies and industries looking for a cover or cap or phone protection type material, anything but we have found nothing.


has anybody found something we could use to protect our lenses on the Navvis VLX?

Unfortunately anything covering the lens will obstruct the field of view. There is a slight recess where the lenses are located on the VLX but it is insufficent to protect them.

The lenses should have been designed as a user replaceable item as it is inevitable that they will be damaged in the normal course of operation. Going through most mechanical rooms and other tight spaces and have in to dodge piping and ductwork ... no matter how careful one is with using VLX its going to happen.
