Operational Modes
The EyeCGas® camera has two basic operational modes: Normal and Enhanced. These are
selectable by depressing the Mode button on the keypad (See Figure 19).
Figure37 :Mode Screen
Normal Mode (Nor). This mode provides standard detection functionality for normal
environmental conditions being the common mode for operating the EyeCGas®.
Enhanced Mode (Enh). This mode provides enhanced sensitivity while operating in low-contrast
backgrounds and/or where attempting to detect low gas flow leakages; EyeCGas® will provide
greater sensitivity but the image will appear grainier while operating in enhanced mode.

From the Normal mode when the Mode button is pressed the keypad configuration will
change to provide adjustments in the Enhanced Mode as shown in Figure 38. The
adjustment is required for maximum detection while having a clear and steady image.
The default values provide full detection capabilities, but in order to bring the camera to a
clear and steady image without losing the gas leak detection change to lower values
Enh+/Enh- first and then Diff+/Diff- as shown in Table 2.

Right /Left (Enh+/Enh-) buttons adjust the amount of background scene as a ratio used
for the final image displayed. The maximum enhanced value is 0.2. See Figures32, 37
and Table 2 for settings and values.
Enhanced Mode (Enh) - Explanation.
Use of enhanced mode is related to the values of the Diff and Enh commands. The higher
the values, the clearer and noiseless the picture. For higher contrasting backgrounds, the
higher the Enh value is, the better the acquired image and detection will be. For the purpose
of enhancing poor contrasts the value of Enh should be set lower while keeping in mind
that when the gas is visualized on the LCD the image should be as less grainy as possible
when adjusted with the (+) or (-) Enh command.
The same is true for the Diff value, wher, in this case, the highest value is used for
detecting large leaks. For small leaks the Diff value should be adjusted lower until the leak
is seen.
A combination of the two values will allow the user to achieve the best image quality for
finding leaks and achieve best video recording performance.

10.3
Lens Care
To prevent the lens from becoming scratched, always attach the lens cover when the
camera is not being used.
If the lens becomes dirty or smudged, only use a specialized, fine optics cleaning
cloth to clean the lens. Use of any other cloth could scratch the lens
If necessary, dampen the optical cloth or tissue with water and lightly wipe the lens.
Allow it to air-dry before use or attaching the lens cover.
The LCD protective screen may also be cleaned with a dampened optical cloth or
tissue.
Camera Body
The camera body may be cleaned with a soft cotton cloth dampened with water. Do not use any
solvents.
10.4
Camera Cooling Unit
The camera includes a cryogenic cooler with an expected MTBF of 7000-8000 hours of operation.
Cooler repair services are offered by Opgal if needed.
10.5
Battery
It is normal for the batteries to deteriorate with use and they will need to be replaced after several
hundred charge cycles. The Li-ion battery packs require special care when not used for extended
periods of time.
 It is recommended to not leave a battery pack in the charger during storage.
 When charged, the battery pack(s) should be removed from the charger and stored
at ambient conditions between 50 – 80oF and less than 70 % relative humidity as in
a home or office. They should not be stored in a warehouse that is not climate
controlled.
 It is also recommended that at least once every other month during storage the
battery pack(s) be placed in the charger and topped off.
 The batteries should not be allowed to fully discharge and then be stored for
extended periods of time. This will significantly shorten the charge cycle lifetime
and capacity of the batteries.
 During normal use the battery pack(s) should also be charged at ambient conditions
between 50 – 80oF. Significantly higher or lower temperatures will not allow the
battery pack(s) to be charged to full capacity and will also shorten their charge
cycle lifetime.
