OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS CC-80 and CC-81 Fluorescence Analysis Cabinets
Printed in U.S.A.
Manual No. AM11028 Issued: September 2011
INTRODUCTION The Spectroline CC-80 and CC-81 cabinets are specially designed for efficient fluorescence analysis. Both units come equipped with a 25-watt internal white light source, while the CC-81 is additionally supplied with the Spectroline ENF-280C 365/254nm 8-watt UV lamp. For a list of E-Series lamp models that work with either the CC-80 or CC-81 cabinets, please visit www.spectroline.com. Choose from the available 8-watt lamps listed under "E-Series Ultraviolet Hand-Held Lamps." For greater epillumination options, these cabinets may be used with one or two Spectroline E-Series UV lamps that are available in 254nm, 312nm or 365nm, or a combination of these wavelengths. For higher UV intensity and increased fluorescent contrast with transillumination, these units may be placed over a wide range of Spectroline UV transilluminators. WARNING Please read the instructions in this manual carefully. Never use this equipment in any manner not specified in these instructions because the protection provided by the equipment may be impaired.

UNPACKING AND INSPECTION 1. Carefully unpack and inspect the cabinet for possible damage in shipment. If any damage is noted, immediately notify the carrier and supplier before attempting to use the equipment. 2. Save the shipping carton and packing materials for future storing and shipping of the equipment. 3. Check the lamp’s electrical performance as soon as possible according to the GENERAL FUNCTIONAL CHECKS outlined in the ‘‘OPERATION’’ section of this manual. OPERATION GENERAL FUNCTIONAL CHECKS 1. Connect the cabinet plug to a power outlet that complies with the electrical requirements specified on the unit’s label. 2. Depress the master switch to the ON position. This switch must be activated to operate the E-Series UV lamp(s) or the white light bulb. 3. Test the white light bulb by pushing the white light switch ON. 4. Check the felt curtain by pushing it inward and upward until it connects with the magnetic catch. This will allow clear placement of samples.
INSTALLATION 1. The power supply cord is the disconnect for this unit. 2. Check that the master and white light switches are both in the OFF position. 3. Set the cabinet upright on a solid, level surface. 4. Place the lamp(s) in the lamp port(s), making sure the lamp cord(s) remain outside the cabinet housing. 5. Plug the cord(s) into a lamp outlet. 6. Push the master power switch ON. 7. Operate the lamp(s) according to the manual enclosed separately with each unit. PORT COVERS When the cabinet is not being used with two E-Series lamps simultaneously, the unused port opening(s) on the upper portion of the cabinet should be covered to exclude ambient light. Two port covers are provided that fit easily into the openings. BOTTOM PANEL A black bottom panel is enclosed with the cabinet. When using the cabinet without a transilluminator, the panel should be in place to ensure proper shielding from ambient light. Remove the four round rubber screw holders with a Phillips screwdriver. Align the four openings in the panel with the bottom of the cabinet and reattach the rubber screw holders. USING WITH A TRANSILLUMINATOR Place the Spectroline UV transilluminator on a solid, level surface, filter side up. Remove the bottom panel and reattach the rubber screw holders to the bottom of the cabinet. These will prevent scratching of the transilluminator surface. WARNING The transilluminatorâ€™s operation is separate from that of the viewing cabinet. Do not attempt to plug the transilluminator into the lamp outlets on the side of the cabinet. This will result in a dangerous overload. The transilluminator must be plugged into a separate external power source.
OPERATOR SERVICING The following servicing instructions are intended for limited maintenance of the cabinet. Do not perform any servicing other than that contained in these instructions. Return the cabinet to the factory for maintenance not covered in this section. WARNING To avoid the risk of electrical shock, always unplug both the cabinet and the lamp(s) from their power sources before cleaning or servicing. The power outlets in the cabinet will accommodate only the Spectroline E-Series lamps. HOUSING AND VIEWING WINDOW MAINTENANCE Immediately clean all spills from the housing using water and a mild detergent, if necessary, and wipe dry. Take care not to allow any liquids to leak into electrical components. Periodically clean the UV-absorbing viewing window with a glass cleaner and soft cloth.
