Maintenance of the targets
(2018-05-02)The expanded plastic sheet that is added to several of our front temperature shields, decreases the need of maintenance significantly.
This sheet should be replaced with a new one every time the rubber band(s) are rotated.
Over time we have begun suspecting this bugger also causing trouble. In these cases the sheet is not properly inserted to the recess in the temperature shield.
This is usually caused by dust piling up in the recess, that the sheet is bulging out of the temperature shield or simply the sheet has fallen out and pinched below the recess.
If so, the measuring chamber might be compressed to an extent that the target might score incorrectly, especially in windy conditions.
In this respect we recommend following steps to avoid such problems:
It’s still important that it doesn’t fall out, but it’s less likely to create problems if the shape isn’t perfect.
