The Clarius Fan is a lightweight device that mounts externally to Clarius scanners to reduce heating and extend the scanning time to a maximum of 45 - 60 minutes of continuous scanning (depending on model, application, and imaging mode). Once the fan is attached to the scanner, it will automatically turn on once the scanner reaches a certain threshold, and turn off when the scanner is again close to room temperature.
To attach the fan to Clarius HD scanners, view the following video:
To attach the fan to first generation Clarius scanners:
- Align the top notch of the fan to sit on the scanner's 3rd groove from the top.
Note: Always install the fan from the long side, as installing it from the shorter side may cause damage to the contact pins.
- Snap the fan in place. The contact pins on the fan should align with the contact pins of the scanner.
- To remove the fan, detach the fan from the shorter side.
