VetScan HM5 Installation Guide

Space Requirements

  • Select a location that is flat, level, sturdy, vibration-free and as dust free as possible.
  • Leave at least 20 inches (about 0.5 m) of clearance on all sides of the instrument to all for adequate airflow and access to connectors.
  • Maintain a minimum of 8 inches (about 0.2 m) behind the analyzer's rear panel to allow for heat dissipation and tube clearance.
  • Place the reagent pack at the same level as the analyzer, either beside or behind the instrument. If you have to place the reagent pack on the lower level, make sure that it is no more than 18 inches (0.45 m) below the level of the analyzer's reagent inlets.
