Regula Document Reader Cleaning Recommendations

Keeping document/passport reader clean is crucial for maintaining their performance and longevity. Proper cleaning ensures that lenses and screens remain free of dust, fingerprints, and smudges that can impair visibility and functionality. Follow these recommendations carefully to clean your devices safely and effectively.

Recommended Cleaning Tools:

Lens Cleaning Cloth: Use a soft, lint-free cloth designed specifically for lens cleaning. This will help avoid scratching the delicate surfaces of your optical device.

Recommended Cleaning Solutions:

  1. Lens Cleaning Solution: Specially formulated for optical surfaces, lens cleaning solutions are ideal for removing grease and smudges without damaging the coating on your lenses.
  2. Rubbing Alcohol (Isopropyl Alcohol): A solution with at least 70% alcohol concentration can be used for disinfecting and cleaning the device. It evaporates quickly, minimizing the risk of moisture damage.
  3. Ethanol Solutions: Similar to isopropyl alcohol, ethanol is effective for cleaning and disinfecting. Ensure it is diluted appropriately to avoid damage to sensitive components.

Cleaning Procedure:

  1. Power Down: Turn off the device and disconnect it from any power sources.
  2. Dust Off: Gently remove surface dust with a soft, dry lens cleaning cloth or a blower. Avoid using compressed air as it can damage sensitive parts or drive debris further into the device.
  3. Apply Solution: Moisten the lens cleaning cloth with a few drops of the recommended cleaning solution (Defender CLN 30802, Fellows FS-99795, FIS F-1007S MICRO DUSTER or similar products). Do not apply the solution directly to the device.
  4. Gentle Cleaning: Wipe the optical surfaces gently with the moistened cloth in a circular motion. Start from the center and move towards the edges.
  5. Dry Wipe: Use a dry part of the lens cleaning cloth to remove any remaining solution, again moving in a gentle, circular motion.
  6. Inspect: Check the device for any remaining marks or smudges and repeat the cleaning process if necessary.

Important Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Not Soak: Never immerse your optical device in any liquid. Do not over wet. Excessive moisture can cause irreversible damage to electronic components.
  • Avoid Abrasive or Corrosive Cleaners: Never use abrasive cloths, paper towels, or corrosive cleaning solutions (including acetone-based cleaning agents!). These can scratch the lens surfaces or degrade the coatings.
  • Handle with Care: Optical devices are delicate. Ensure you're handling your device gently during the cleaning process to avoid any damage.

By following these cleaning recommendations, you can ensure that your optical devices remain in top condition, providing you with clear and reliable performance for years to come.
